For 25 years I made a living managing portfolios of secured debt deals. Since 1997, I've made my living from a portfolio of public company stock that I created and manage. I enjoy helping less experienced investors by my comments and articles on SA. My insights and methods can be found in the pages of a short book I wrote in 2012 to help friends who didn't have the knowledge I had acquired but who wanted to improve their investing results. The book is available at amazon.com.
