I am investing primarily in securities which are traded in the U.S. I am passionate about self-development, women and working independently. I aim to eventually start an investment fund which utilizes proprietary research software to have an edge in the market. I educated myself on analyzing stocks and bonds through both reading and practice. My formal education is limited to just one year of business school. I learned much faster on my own. I have around three years of experience researching, investing and trading stocks and bonds. I do not have a real job because I don't need one. My income is roughly 75% from my investments, and about 25% from my websites. I am also an experienced programmer and online marketer. I intend to publicize my research of companies here at Seeking Alpha whenever such research digs deep enough. I would only research a company thoroughly if I'm personally interested in investing in it or shorting its stock.
I graduated from Wharton Undergrad in 1978. I am currently managing a hedge fund and long only money for Ingalls and Snyder. Prior to joining Ingalls I worked at Credit Suisse, DLJ, Kidder and Drexel Burnham in fixed income.
Love the stock market. Look for shorts and longs that are both mispriced and ripe for moving. I've been investing in the stock market for over ten years, primarily on the hedge fund side. I've worked in private equity and like to think about the market, the economy, and society in a broad, sometimes slightly unorthodox way. While I do trade rather actively, and if I had more time, I would increase the level of my activity, I spend a lot of time looking for long-term holdings. I see trading as another asset class for my overall portfolio.
