If you are bored enough to read this, I am an engineer by trade and in the energy industry. When I have free time (or free money for that matter) I like to see if there are any bargains in the market. My style of trading is quite simple, I buy stocks that have low P/E's and short stocks with high P/E's, but sometimes do invest in companies with unique technologies that I believe in. I am relatively new to the market (3 years of trading) and tend to do short term trading (buy and sell anywhere from several hours to a fiscal quarter). I also love to look at charts, which are a great indicator of today's "herd mentality", which also helps me to decide when to buy and when short a stock. Lastly, I find the market frustrating many days just as many of you do; due to the market running a (in my mind) mediocre stock up and pounding a solid company for a .01% earnings miss...
I am Seeking Alpha's CEO and Editor-in-Chief. My love for the stock markets goes back to when I was a kid. Who else remembers combing through the stock quotes at the back of the business section of your local paper?
I joined Seeking Alpha in 2006 and launched Wall Street Breakfast and Market Currents, our top-of-class short-form breaking news for investors. In 2010 I became editor-in-chief and in 2015 I became CEO.
I live in Jerusalem with my wife and a bunch of exceptional kids. Most days, you'll find me making the commute from Jerusalem to Raanana. Occasionally I get to work from my home-office, from where I keep an eye on the beautiful Judean Hills.
