I am 38 years old, married and have two daughters 3 and 5. I live upstate New York near Ithaca. My aim is to be objective about the macro investment environment and to provide sound analysis on stocks.I'm a fan of the following people to help give a perspective of my biases I may hold with regards to investment and economics: Adam Smith, Milton Friedman, Charles Schwab (Steel Tycoon), Martin Armstrong, Peter Bernstein (Author), Henry Ford, Ayn Rand, to name a few..
I work as an analyst at BlackVault Investments, LP. I currently provide comprehensive research for the firm’s aggregate portfolio that employs an event driven value strategy that includes multiple event driven investments built around a relative alpha value portfolio. Our fund specializes in a number of different overlaid investment strategies that include event driven and relative value strategies. We utilize our consistent fundamental approach to examine investment decisions coupled with a keen focus on macro economic trends.
Our fund employs our strategy through the institution of multiple assets including equities, fixed income products, and derivatives.
I'm an investor, a small business owner, a landlord, and I write code. I have a B.S. in Computer Science and an MBA. I like narrowing down my investment choices with the power of a computer, but I realize that is only part of the process. I also need to do the manual work and read the SEC filings and other information to solidify my thesis. I like value investing and distressed investing, but I'll do anything that has a good risk/reward profile.
I spent my youth growing up on a farm in western North Dakota and graduated from NDSU. After graduation, I entered the USAF through ROTC and spent 20 years in the Air Force, mostly as a meteorologist. I graduated from the US Naval Post Graduate School with a M.S. in Meteorology. I also am a CFP, but do not work in the industry. I am an investor and trader -- lots of similarities between trading markets and meteorology. You are trying to determine the future.
