I am a professor of biomedical engineering at the University of California, Irvine. I have been an individual investor for over 20 years on both the long and short side. I like to buy (or sell) when I see a significant difference between my calculation of an enterprise's value and the market value. The most significant day of my investing career was December 29, 1999.
carefully investing but more often investigating; have had 6 decades of remembered losses in both public markets and private placements. Still a board member of a nonprofit and still holding shares in companies seeded long ago but not yet having reached their investor exits. Trying to be thoughtful about investments and enjoying the experience. Becoming less current all the time, likely finding me to be a doddering old fuddy duddy for anyone reading what I post here.
A 20 year career of executive leadership in IT with specialization in database development, IT strategies and financial analysis. I've led the formation and development of several technology companies and have experienced the success and challenges that serial entrepreneurship brings.
As a long conservative investor, I've learn hard-taught lessons on the differences between speculation, trading, and investing.

I have been trading options since their inception back in the early 70's, spending my lunch hour at the library seeking out the best opportunities. In one year, I amassed a tidy sum, yet realized that my success was more luck than skill and that I had a lot more to learn. I became an Optionetics student and alerted many acquaintances to their method of trading options when I realized how powerful, both negatively and positively, options could be.
In the late Fall of my life I am focused on hefty percentage returns on what I feel are Core stocks.
I am an experienced individual investor who has been trading merger arbitrage stocks and options since the 90's. I am a writer with a Master of Science from Northwestern University and I truly enjoy writing articles about the stock market. I try to look for opportunities where the odds are in my favor and there is a definite edge. On Seeking Alpha my articles will aim to provide insight and favorable risk/reward for the readers.However, I am not an investment advisor so any recomendations or ideas I write about in my articles, blogs, or comments shouldn't be taken as investment advice. I recommend using my writings as a starting point to which you should add your own research or that of an investment advisor.
"Any time you make a bet with the best of it, where the odds are in your favor, you have earned something on that bet, whether you actually win or lose the bet. By the same token, when you make a bet with the worst of it, where the odds are not in your favor, you have lost something, whether you actually win or lose the bet."
