I enjoy doing stock analysis and consider myself a value investor. I practice focus investing, and only hold a few stocks at a time (sometimes none at all depending on the opportunities available). I diligently research the stocks I own. I am a Computer Engineering graduate with about 8 years in the industry. Any comments or articles posted are my own opinions and you should independently verify any statements I make on Seeking Alpha.

I know enough to be dangerous, that is, I'm just an index investor (AU) buying on the dips. I am in a position to keep on investing to some degree, as opposed to being retired and simply watching with anxiety. I'm an amateur, but I've read alot recently, about the financial crisis and also starting to go back and read history of various financial crises, like 1857, 1907, 1914, also Weimar Rupublic, The Bankers Who Broke the World, etc., and it's just so interesting that these crises, instead of being "tail" events, are probably better classified as periodic and to some extent predictable.
