I recently graduated from California State University, Fullerton with a major in finance and a minor in economics. During my undergrad career, I interned at a global-macro research firm and a real estate private equity fund; both in an analyst role. I was also fortunate enough to be a part of the university's endowment fund management program where a few select finance students are given the opportunity to manage a portfolio for the the school for a full academic year.
At present, I'm an analyst at a regional boutique investment bank in Orange County, California and am a Level 2 Candidate in the CFA Program.
Retail Investor, Shareholder Advocate and Editor of Stocks DD blog. You are cautioned to read the disclaimer in Seeking Alpha before reading my articles. I am NOT a registered investment adviser. My articles are ONLY for informative purposes and should NOT be treated as investment advice.
My investment philosophy:
1. Invest in Strong businesses (high barriers to entry) 2. Invest in Management with excellent track record for shareholder value creation 3. Invest at undervalued prices
Invest in special situations (bankruptcy or other restructuring) or Drug development firms, where there is with an asymmetric reward/risk...where I have strong conviction on a reward event.
I am also interested in the shareholders topics in publicly listed companies:
1. Shareholder rights 2. Giving shareholders a voice incl shareholder participation in value creation 3. Improving board and management's accountability to shareholders
Be a shareholder advocate and work towards insuring boards and management "do the right thing for shareholders", maximizing and protecting shareholder's value.
