I am a retail investor that has been in the market since 2000. My focus is on making small steady returns consistently by trading infrequently and using paired stock/option set-ups. My hobby is to financially model small cap companies, especially ones that seem to be on the cusp of hitting an inflection point. I have a PhD in Bioinformatics and work in the biotechnology sector analyzing microbial genotypes and epidemiology.
I am a research scientist with a strong background in Human Genetics, Molecular Biology, Cell Biology, Cardiovascular Biology, Cancer Biology, and Immunology. I received my Ph.D. in Biomedical Sciences from UCSF and did my Postdoctoral training at Stanford. I have also worked as a scientific consultant to various Tech and Biotech companies. I have been investing in stocks as an individual investor for 20 years and have always managed my own portfolio. My scientific expertise gives me a unique insight into the science that Biotech companies base their businesses on, and often gives me an edge over the "Smart Money" on Wall St. when it comes to this particular sector.
