I have been a successful Private Investor in the market for the last 18 years. My focus was mostly on the Tech/Internet sector when I started, but 13-14 years ago I became extremely interested in the Gold and Silver sector as I anticipated a major bull run. My in-depth research on gold and silver companies began during 2003 or so, and it has been a consistent passion since that time. I'm familiar with their stories, their stock patterns, their highs and lows, their operations/projects, their successes and failures, their management teams and turnover at the top, and all other facets of these precious metal companies. This sector has been my singular focus since I started writing on Seeking Alpha back in 2014, as I anticipated that gold and silver would soon be bottoming out and a massive bull market would unfold. I still follow the tech/internet space and I plan to eventually jump back into that sector (2009 was a very profitable year for me as bought tech at the lows), but it's not where my attention is at the moment as I see much better opportunities in gold and silver. I believe in buying value, and not chasing the next hot stock. I use several basic investing principles, the main one being buying the balance sheet. I wait for opportunities to present themselves and then establish positions. I believe in doing your homework, and I have a very research intensive focus.
I invest in situations where momentum stocks are priced beneath the growth rate. I also have expertise in recognizing potential catalysts. I invest part-time in addition to my duties as a sports business professional.
Opportunities are always changing and I prefer to move along with them. I am constantly looking to spot areas of growth and value before the market does whether this is analyzing the latest news or tearing apart a 10-K.
As much as I would like to be spot on with every idea, I cannot guarantee that all of my ideas will beat the market. As always, remember to do your own due diligence before making any investment decisions.
I enjoy spending my free time researching stock ideas and publishing ideas when I have a solid investment thesis. I enjoy writing about technology stocks as well as obscure "unsexy" businesses that are often overlooked by the larger market. I employ a growth at a reasonable price approach to select the majority of stocks I own.
I worked as a stock analyst for two years at a boutique firm where I learned the framework that I now use to invest in my personal account. I earned a dual degree in Business and Economics, which gave me a foundation I currently use to perform due diligence. I love hearing from readers and always try to answer questions or clarify when possible.
I am a forward-looking, value-oriented investor who looks at companies over a long time horizon. I primarily invest in companies with sustainable competitive advantages that are trading below intrinsic value with a significant margin of safety. My investment philosophy is primarily based on my prior work experiences, as well as readings from Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, Joel Greenblatt, and Pat Dorsey, among others.

I received my MBA in analytic finance and economics from the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business in March of 2013, where I learned a significant amount about investing. Over the course of my life I've learned immeasurably more from a class that occurs one Saturday every year in Omaha, Nebraska. The class is virtually free of charge, and taught by two elderly men named Warren and Charlie. They teach me more about investing, business and life in 8 hours every year than a lifetime of MBA classes could, and I'm eternally grateful to them. I am also a licensed certified public accountant (CPA) in the state of Illinois.

Why the pseudonym Lord Baltimore? He was a famous native american scout in the late 1800's as well as an intense character in Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid who relentlessly tracked the two heroes. (A 1970s heavy metal band was similarly inspired by the film character in selecting its name.) I view investing a lot like tracking. It is a process of putting together clues found along a trail to determine the path of the target, which in this case is attractive investments - long or short.
