I am currently an analyst at Standard & Poor's and as a result am not an active contributor to this site or any others. However, previous to my current position I worked for myself as an investment analyst and equity trader, and published research on my webpage, Money by Maggi. I also worked as a paid contributor for Small Cap Specialists LLC (smallcapir.com), focusing on nano to mid-cap publicly traded companies. In the past, I have worked for various asset management and financial services firms including Gabelli Asset Management (GAMCO Investors) in Rye, NY; UBS Financial Services in Stamford, CT in the Global Wealth Management division; and Merrill Lynch in Fairfield, CT. I have been investing in the stock market since I was in middle school and have a true passion for the industry. I hold a BS in Finance from Fairfield University in Fairfield, CT, and am a CFA charterholder.
