I am an individual investor. I try to limit my stock portfolio to companies and products I understand. I am a consultant in technology / Internet, so most of my stock investing is in that space. I believe in the benefits of combining non-correlating assets. I implement most trades through options, often LEAPS, with the occasional spread or straddle. I use Peter Hoadley's tools for portfolio optimization and options strategy. I spend a lot of time in Excel. I'm reading Graham and Dodd.
When not investing, I enjoy skiing and flying. I'm a private pilot, and glider pilot. I have two sons in their 20s. I live in a 1700s house that has a cooking fireplace, so I've been learning Colonial cooking techniques (pics http://www.flickr.com/photos/timothyshea/sets/72157621824250901/).
I learn a lot from Seeking Alpha. I enjoy the articles, and the diversity of comments.

I've worked for a major wall street firm since the early 80s. I'm a portfolio manager with $50 million under management. I manage an unrestricted equity fund focused on growth opportunities, an equity income fund focused on income growth, and two asset allocation models. My buy list is determined by relative strength, earnings quality, and relative valuation. I like to buy in the sweet spot when all three align.

Michael A. Persky, MD is a board certified facial plastic surgeon, practicing facial aesthetics in Encino, CA since 1985. First investment request was in 1990 when he asked his first and only wife to purchase 100 shares of MCD, 100 shares of DIS, and 100 shares of Berkshire-Hathaway (being a new fan of Warren Buffet) from her stock broker girlfriend. Got the 100 of MCD and DIS, but she informed me that we needed $835,000 to cover the Berk-Hath order, beyond our $20,000 investment budget. If she had only listened to me and bought that day, those 100 shares are worth $17,225,000 today. Money makes money, but your health is your wealth. Best,
