I started following the markets while in law school after Black Monday in 1987. l have been a real estate developer and active investor since 1992. I have focused on investing in smallcap growth stocks since 1993 with an emphasis on emerging markets. I have visited South America, Eastern Europe and Asia to do due diligence on companies. My investing approach is based on sector rotation thoughout the business cycle and within an expansion to look for secular growth stocks. I track economic data, market technicals and charts for signals that the expansion is ending and it's time go short until the risk/reward favors going long again.
