I have a B.S. in applied mathematics and physics. If you google "stock ranking method", my article is one of the first hits. I generally look for growth at a reasonable price, though I also like companies that pay dividends. I also look for value in special situations like spin-offs, mergers and acquisitions, restructurings, etc. I have a self-programmed stock screener/investment simulator that I use to find new investments.
I try to carefully trade weekly & monthly stock options with expertise in mining companies & traditional manufacturers. Speak & write fluent Portuguese and speak good Spanish. Resided twice in Brazil and once on Guam Island. Employed at the same large foreign-owned Distribution Center the past 15 years & completely 100% Pro-NAFTA. Smart individual investing is the preferred solution to improving one's economic future, as opposed to vast & vague government handouts. Seeking Alpha is the #1 best financial blog because of honest opinions & superb organization.
I have been a pastry chef for nearly 15 years. I enjoy my work every day seeing how happy my customers are when they bite into my cream puffs stuffed with the finest cream. I am also an invester. I follow a couple of companies that I have some investments in currently.
Attorney and long time investor. I became very interested in the stock market at age 12 when my grandparents started talking to me about their Microsoft stock. I found the whole thing fascinating. I have invested ever since. I was never interested in working as a money manager, however, as I can't stand a lot of the rules placed on them by their supervisors. I want to be free to invest in what I deem the best companies at the right time. I am an academic at heart and decided to attend law school with the hopes of helping the little guy. Most of what I do involves pursuing sums of money from large entities for individual clients. This is extremely rewarding and I have found that it is a great way to earn a living while still feeling good about what you do. I get to give a voice to the oppressed who are often victims of a society that would rather forget about them and push them off to the side. I am very fortunate and thankful to be in this industry. I hope you enjoy my articles for SA. Please contact me whenever you have a question or just want to chat.
