Avid follower of value/contrarian investing principles. Focus on special situations, deep value, and out-of-favor growth stocks. I am also a close follower of hedge fund and insider activity, as I believe that close inspection of these transactions could be a great resource for generating potential investment ideas. Some of my favorite celebrity investors include Warren Buffet, David Einhorn, Joel Greenblatt, Peter Lynch, and Carl Icahn. As a student of these investing legends, I strongly believe that managing focused portfolios consisting of well-researched undervalued companies will produce market-beating returns over the long term. Some of my favorite books on investment strategy include The Warren Buffet Way, One Up on Wall Street, The Warren Buffet Portfolio, The Little Book that Beats the Market, You Could Be a Stock Market Genius, and Fooling Some of the People All of the Time. I'm always on the lookout for more interesting reads, so if you have any please feel free to share. You may check out my book, Invest Your Way to Riches: The Contrarian Way, on Amazon.
