"In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable." - Robert Arnott
I am a "Value" and "Growth" retail investor, looking for opportunities in emerging and undervalued stocks, often counter to conventional thought. I use fundamentals to back up my argument, and also like to point out stocks which I believe to be overvalued. I have enjoyed nice gains from using my strategies, finding value in Research in Motion, SuperValue, ZipCar, and ClearWire (before they all jumped 60% or more). I have been actively trading for more than half a decade, studying mostly stocks. Having the privilege of living in New York, I have attended investor conferences, and sector exhibitions - I am particularly interested in the technological sector. Being a small business owner, I like to see first hand how certain stocks affect their consumers, by doing research in the public and on eBay (where I sell some of my inventory). There are always good investments, and I try to find them through both growth, opportunity, and value.

I live in beautiful British Columbia! As an outdoor enthusiast raised by an uncle and a father who were avid BC outdoors people, BC is a perfect home for myself. My uncle a geologist travelled around the province for his work, and sometimes took an excited me with him, to go on adventures! He had a great regard for geology, investing, sustainable resource development, was involved in the development and success of several British Columbia mining projects and he loved and admired BC wildlife! A percentage of his capital gains he donated to wildlife rehabilitation centres throughout BC, a tradition I continue. He had a marvellous collection of wildlife photos, including photos of very shy/elusive, gorgeous animals such as the lynx. Today I continue his tradition of donating some of my investment proceeds, for wildlife conservation/rehab ie. injured animals or for instance orphaned bear cubs from sports hunting, which is primarily hunting animals for fun (it is illegal in several nations i.e. Kenya, Botswana, Costa Rica...) not sustenance. In my spare time I actively research companies seeking value added opportunities in well managed companies with growing EPS, whose management is shareholder friendly, ie. dividends but also invests in innovation and R&D for future growth. I also consider sustainability practices such as in house recycling and other responsible/progressive practices. I studied economics and environmental science at Simon Fraser Univ. and have worked in venture capital lending for new technology start-ups in BC. Due to a personal commitment to ongoing learning I often upgrade my work skills, take more courses ect... and personal development workshops. I like to inspire others to do the same. I like researching and the due diligence process of selecting stocks to trade/invest in however I do have a very focused outlook on long-term profitability and dividend growth. I hold or have held shares in Apple, Hains, Micron, Lennar, Delta Airways, Wells Fargo, Whole Foods and many others. Financial health is important but so is physical/emotional health to overall wellness, so please all remember to exercise regularly it is fun, eat healthy, and drink lots of water. When you are healthier your cognition improves, ie. exercise increases blood and oxygen flow to the brain key for clear thinking. The key is research, facts and learning from other people such as other traders and investors on Seeking Alpha. All the best! Erica Denison
