I'm a professor and data scientist who has developed scorecards to detect fraudulent bank transactions. As an investor I look for fraudulent stocks and other stocks that aren't what they seem.
I am a retired lawyer who also was CEO of a small merchant banking firm affiliated with BOA and of a financial services holding company. I have been an entrepreneur in the medical services area. I presently spend most of my time reading about investing and doing so.
Let's see, Veteran (Vietnam era), Commercial Artist, picture framer, industrial engineer & corporate executive (once upon a time), small business owner and operator, Ayn Rand fan, Libertarian (and no, its not a synonym for "Republican" or "Conservative"), and history buff. Serious investor, I need to earn money from my assets, and I'm of the age where I pull money out to help put food on the table. I like to fish, but just as with my investing, I am a "meat fisherman", I only kill what I plan to consume.
