Retail Investor, Shareholder Advocate and Editor of Stocks DD blog. You are cautioned to read the disclaimer in Seeking Alpha before reading my articles. I am NOT a registered investment adviser. My articles are ONLY for informative purposes and should NOT be treated as investment advice.
My investment philosophy:
1. Invest in Strong businesses (high barriers to entry) 2. Invest in Management with excellent track record for shareholder value creation 3. Invest at undervalued prices
Invest in special situations (bankruptcy or other restructuring) or Drug development firms, where there is with an asymmetric reward/risk...where I have strong conviction on a reward event.
I am also interested in the shareholders topics in publicly listed companies:
1. Shareholder rights 2. Giving shareholders a voice incl shareholder participation in value creation 3. Improving board and management's accountability to shareholders
Be a shareholder advocate and work towards insuring boards and management "do the right thing for shareholders", maximizing and protecting shareholder's value.

I am an almost 40 year old investor with a long term perspective and a lot of patience. I mainly think about the future when investing in stocks. I do not care about what my selection of stocks will do next year, but what the result will be in 2040 or so. To paraphrase Warren Buffett: "You should only have stocks that you would feel comfortable having if the stock market closes up for 10 years." That means that I look for stocks that combine growth and value. It has been proven that the group of dividend initiators and fastest dividend growers outperforms the markets by far in the long run. So I mainly select stocks from this group, although I also select some non-dividend payers that I believe will grow out to great future value players. Hence: from Growth to Value. I appreciate your comments, because I believe I can still learn a lot from your feedback and I believe in the wisdom of crowds.
