I work full-time as a strategy and management consultant for public sector clients but finance, economics, and investing are my passion. I self-manage my investment portfolio*, which is in the low seven digits of net worth and is comprised of common stock, preferred stock, hedged option positions and real estate (I purchase condos and SFHs that are distressed and rent them out). My investment style is opportunistic and since I started investing in the 1990s, I've owned a variety of asset classes using a variety of investment strategies including -- distressed deep value, momentum trading, Growth At a Reasonable Price (GARP), special situations, dividend growth, and turnarounds. My goal is to create a nest egg large enough that I could comfortably quit my day job and become a ski-and-hiking bum. My current investment interests are high dividend stocks such as REITs (both mortgage and non-mortgage related), BDCs, MLPs, and asset lessors. I'm also interested in technology when I can get value, stocks trading below book value in general, and I've long been a fan of emerging markets and international stocks, although that's been a tough place to be lately. Although I don't have an intentional bias, I tend to be intrigued by smaller cap companies, probably because they are more easily misunderstood by Mr. Market. I love being right almost as much as I love making money. I have a Masters in Financial Engineering from Cornell University. *I also manage my mom's portfolio which is geared toward her status as a retiree and widow.
I am investing through my 401k, and now invest primarily in individual securities. I am a Pension Actuary by trade. I consult with large companies and help them manage their risks involved with their retirement plans. My work focuses mostly on the liability side of the pension plans, but I have limited experience with respect to their pension investment strategies. I enjoy the analysis of individual companies, and I consider myself a value leaning investor, but pay attention to growth at a reasonable price. I plan to hold most of my investments for a long time, or at least until someone offers me a price I can't refuse.

Netherlands based non-professional stocktrader with a private portfolio; good at stockpicking; not good at options. I prefer companies with a good ROI, ROE, PEG-ratio, good and inspiring management, a durable competative advantage. BUY AND ACCUMULATE (B&A) is my approach. I'm in the market for the company's profit, not the stockprice in the first place.
While some other hamsters sees spinning the wheel every day a destiny, I am the odd one that begrudges such monotony. After all, life will be horribly boring without learning something new everyday.
I have written 2 dutch books on value investing: "Aandelen selecteren als waardebelegger" and "Beleggen in bull- en bearmarkten". See bol.com (search for the titles). As a mathematician (Ph.D.) I am most interested in investment strategies with statistically favorable returns. In particular I invest in net-nets (20-30% average annual returns). I find companies with low Enterprise Value/Earnings before Tax and Interest (EV/EBIT) and strong balance sheets (20% average annual returns) also very interesting. Since such stocks are rare I invest globally. Send me a message with your email address to get example articles of my premium research on Seeking Alpha.
