Seeking Alpha

Siming Ma  

I am a 28 years old PhD student in Biochemistry. I am new to the investing world and learning my way through. I have no formal training in business, finance, or investment, so please take whatever I write with many grains of salts.

My "main job" is to conduct laboratory research in biology and genetics, so SeekingAlpha is only a side interest. I like to use the Instablog to put down some investment ideas and occasionally review my portfolio performance. It is just a convenient way for me to track my own journey of learning, and to remind myself of the analysis and rationale behind each investment decision -- especially in times when the market trend turns against me.
