Hi all ! After a long period of just reading the articles on Seeking Alpha, I decided to share some thoughts and ideas about the market and stocks. I am a CPA and have held a CFO position in several companies over the years. One of my hobbies is stock analysis: I will always read thoroughly the financial statements, notes, letters to shareholders and any other stuff that can help me decide what the company is worth. I prefer boring stocks where you can understand the company's value fairly easily than dream-high-flying stocks where the financial statements have nothing to do with their valuation. My portfolio usually includes just stocks and bonds, rarely options and only for hedging. I hope you find my articles interesting and helpful, I will try to reply to all comments. My recommendations reflect how I feel about the stocks at the time of writing. Before you follow them I urge you to perform your own due-diligence on any stock. You should dare to succeed!
