A humble engineer and family man. Never been to Wall Street. Not psychic or anything. The idea behind DCFHub: I realized one day that it is possible to automatically calculate and track a net present value for just about every stock by simply plugging the analyst consensus growth estimates into a discounted cash flow analysis. So I am doing it.
I am a long time buy-and-hold investor from Cleveland, Ohio, with approximately 6 years investing experience.
I primarily target Value stocks, but on occasion am open to "growth at a reasonable price."
Ideally I prefer to invest in Mid-Cap stocks over large-cap or small-cap.
I believe the two best sectors to invest in during the next two decades will be Health Care for growth and Financials for value.
I tend to ignore the opinions of hedge-fund managers or so-called "experts"....rather, my investment philosophy values the opinion of simple minds that come from humble backgrounds.
I am always on a look-out for secular trends; I look for companies that benefit from aging baby boomers, rising interest rates, organic eating, and increased adoption of electronic payment systems.
I tend to pay more attention to a company's qualitative aspects rather than quantitative.

In a market driven by emotions like fear and greed, I present to investors a simple numbers based approach to consistently picking good stocks. My investing strategy centers on value investing and is heavily influenced by Benjamin Graham, Warren Buffett, investing podcasts and books.
Private Investor interested in disruptive markets (e.g. Solar, LED, Laser, 3D, unconventional Oil&Gas,...).
Very bad at market timing. Reasonably good at fundamental research.
Investing is profession & intellectual fun.
