I am a fundamentals-driven individual investor with a passion for in-depth analysis of the securities that I consider for my portfolio. Although my focus is typically on top-level analysis (market > sector > industry > competitive groups > stock), I occasionally diverge when a special scenario warrants my attention. I appreciate when others provide a full background of all relevant issues affecting an investment decision, and I hate when others overlook pertinent facts, purposefully or not. I consider my money my family's and do not take investment decisions lightly. I appreciate the opportunity to contribute to the great community that Seeking Alpha has become and welcome any comments about my work.
