I am a young mechanical engineer who has used the past 5 years (aside from my day job) to lay the foundation for my future in investments. From reading books from Benjamin Graham to Peter Lynch or reading countless annual reports, there are a few bedrocks from which I have built and will continue to build upon. First and foremost is safety of capital, I will not invest in or try to learn about speculative financial instruments. Second, I look for companies or assets that have a history of good returns on invested capital and utilize moderate to low levels of debt. I trade infrequently and I am triggered only when my estimate of fair value and the current margin of safety against that value are advantageous. Improving my capital allocation is my key goal moving forward. When I feel a situation has been misunderstood/mispriced by the market and I see a high probability of success, I will write an article detailing those findings. Unfortunately, my time is limited so articles will be scarce. In addition to this, I am not a financial advisor and all due diligence should be performed by the reader. PG
A fundamental principle of technical analysis is that a market's price reflects all relevant information, so their analysis looks at the history of a security's trading pattern rather than external drivers such as economic, fundamental and news events. Therefore, price action tends to repeat itself due to investors collectively tending toward patterned behavior – hence technical analysis focuses on identifiable trends and conditions.
We at SinoValues unabashedly believe that Asian markets for decades to come shall be a place of great wealth generation for those willing to participate.
We primarily invest in American listed Chinese securities. While we dedicate part of our portfolio to swing trading, our long-term growth consists of small & mid cap, emerging stocks- mainly Chinese mining, retail, and internet.
Companies that have potential for double-digit growth, dividend payments, and a discount to intrinsic value are the long-term focus.
We mainly use technical and fundamental analysis for our short term trades.
When we are not looking for the next best Chinese growth story, life is enjoyed through traveling, golf, board games, antiquing, and enjoying time with friends.

I grew up in NW Ohio, joined the Marines and stayed in the Carolinas after I got out of the service. Love to find under valued stocks, digging for info on public companies that fancy-pants analysts don't have the presence of mind to spot, and spending time with my family.
I recommend microcap (penny) stocks that I feel are in the "sweet spot" for nice trades to members of my service, "Microcap Millionaires". My website can be found at http://www.microcapmillionaires.com
