I'm investing with both eyes on climate change and the math of future commodity shortages. Influences include Tom Konrad, Jeremy Grantham, and Jim Jubak. Major interests include heavy-duty vehicles--especially transit buses, biomethane, and combined heat and power.
I am a 25 years old individual investor. I started investing when I was a student and now have a passion for Financial Markets. I trade mostly the Forex market EUR/USD, Index and Precious Metal CFDs and also stocks.
I am here to learn from others but also to comment articles.
I am an active investor and trader seeking superior long-term returns in value companies at massively discounted prices. A large part of my portfolio is dedicated to companies with a high potential to multiply their returns at least 5x or more. The remaining part of the portfolio is comprised of stable and safe dividend income.
I am on continuous look-out for highly intelligent speculations or investments based on sound fundamentals and research.

He is currently looking for a money management firm to sponsor what he believes would be the first dividend income oriented green mutual fund, based on a strategy he has been managing since December 2013.

Tom lives in New York's lower Hudson River Valley. He volunteers for the environmental nonprofit community, runs, and is a woodworker. He's currently using those woodworking skills to renovate (and upgrade the energy performance) of the 1930 farmhouse he lives in with his wife.

I primarily research small cap equities with a focus on the clean energy, technology, and consumer discretionary sectors. I focus on value and growth at a reasonable price with underappreciated/misunderstood near term (6-12 months) catalysts.
I'm also interested in controversial and turnaround equities, searching for value in companies that have fallen out of favor with the investment community by doing significant research and taking a long or short position based on my findings.
