My name is John (Jack) Ford. I am a recent graduate with a BA in Economics from Vanderbilt University. I focus on actionable insights on U.S. equities, both long and short. I spend the majority of my time reading filings and history since both of these information sources are relatively free. The first of my two main influences is John Maynard Keynes, one of the first investors to use concentrated positions in high quality companies to great effect (and subsequently by Graham and Buffett) in managing the King's College fund and his own wealth. The second is David Tepper due to his no-nonsense approach to investing that relies on analysis heavy on insight and light on rhetoric. For one, no other high AUM investor is willing to use the versatility of liquid index-tracking funds as opposed to index futures due to the former's stigma.
