Founder, CEO & Director of Research for Brandywine Asset Management and author of "Jackass Investing: Don't do it. Profit from it." I have been a professional investor/trader since 1979 and have experience in stocks, managed futures, commodities, mutual fund arbitrage, market neutral equity, and long/short equity.
Founded "Just the Facts/Fax" investment advisory newsletter based on technical analysis back in the pre-internet days of $2000 fax machines. Stacks of Barron's, Wall Street Journal and Investor's Business Daily along my walls made excellent insulation. Invented a few common-sense indicators and was an occasional contributor to "Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities" magazine under my pen name, Anthony J. Macek. Took a few decades off to let the market catch up, and now enjoy reading the few authors who write with brevity and "get it," while trying to weed out those who write volumes apologizing for why they don't. Remember - money is only a way to keep score. Enjoy the hunt, the on-going quest for alpha. Cheers!
