Named by Fortune as one of its "50 Great Investors". Acknowledged as Cash Flow From Operations (CFFO) expert by WSJ, Fortune, Forbes.com and Smartmoney.com after developing a CFFO algorithm that predicts bankruptcies for seemingly healthy large NYSE and NASDAQ traded companies. Markowski also has CFFO algorithms that identify severely undervalued companies.
In September 2007 Equities Magazine column predicted the 2008 collapses for all five of the U.S. major brokers including Lehman, Bear Stearns and Merrill Lynch. Wholesale sell recommendations for the five based on macro-analysis of brokerage industry's negative cash flow due to "sub-prime mortgage revenue".

Currently: Analyst for Dynasty Wealth (focused on finding and covering disruptor companies that have 100X to 1,000X potential within 5 years).
Passion is recommending shorts for hyped companies that have inherently flawed negative CFFO models and ten baggers for those which are extremely undervalued based on their CFFO. Does not trade the markets and is instead a buy and holder.
Began career with Merrill Lynch in 1977 and was employed in early years by Oppenheimer and Donaldson Lufkin & Jenrette. Became CEO of a firm in 1990 that subsequently went out of business due to the firm’s having a net capital deficiency on January 15, 1991, the day before the first Gulf War broke out.
Markowski voluntarily left the broker industry in 1991. Most of his activities since have been in the financial information industry. The SEC and the NASD subsequently barred Markowski in 1995 from associating with a broker dealer. The bar related to activities that occurred in 1990, and before the war's breaking out which caused a severe lack of liquidity for the markets resulting in the firm's going out of business. Markowski appealed his bar to the U.S. Supreme Court which denied to hear his appeal. Markowski was not barred from being a registered investment advisor (RIA). However, Markowski chose not to pursuit a career as a RIA.
I am a full-time college student that has always had interest in the stock market. My uncle initially got me involved several years ago and I have continued watching the stock market and a little profit here and there. I graduate in May and I hope to really get involved and become more knowledgable about the stock market. I still find it very complex, but I am willing to do my homework and become educated over time. As for me I live in Kansas and am married with no kids, and after I graduate and take boards I hope to buy a dog…or two.
