I'm an independent equity researcher, writer and investor based in Amsterdam. My primary focus is on the micro-cap segment of the market. I also work for pension funds as a member of the Board and Investment Committee. Lastly, I enjoy soccer, sports in general and brewing the best coffee one can make at home.
I am a private investor based out of Toronto, Canada and I have been investing since 2003. After 8 years in Corporate Finance with a Canadian Telecom company I have decided to dedicate myself full-time to the capital markets. I write on Seeking Alpha to demonstrate my financial analysis and writing skills across a variety of industries and to take advantage of any story-based trading opportunity that may arise. My passion and greatest depth of knowledge is on Canadian small cap stocks and I consider my blog posts to be some of my best work. I am interested in any freelance opportunities that may arise outside of Seeking Alpha on Canadian or American listed stocks.

Investment Manager at Rugged Group LLC, an independent, fee-only registered investment advisor based in New York that I formed in August 2015. My firm's investment approach can be summarized in the same four, one-syllable words that Walter Schloss famously used: We Buy Cheap Stocks. Alternatively, you could say I am a quantitative deep value investor. I also invest globally, scouring many markets in search of cheap stocks.

Value investor with about 25 years experience. Im an active trader but don't trade every day. Only when I find something worth buying or selling. Tend to scale in and out of positions.
I like stocks below book value, with low PEs, turnarounds & stocks with meaningful insider buying. (Hard to find nowdays)
I think MLMs are scams and the country & world would be a better place if most were shut down and/or regulated heavily. I have no position in any of them so my opinion is not tainted by potential gains or losses. Im rooting heavily for Ackman in his quest against the evil & dishonesty of HLF.
Apparently, I own a tiny bit of NUS via FBALX. Its less than 1/10th of 1% of the fund. Kind of makes me throw up a little bit.

I am most interested in therapies that could potentially (and/or eventually) be used to treat pediatric cancer patients. I am a financing/accounting type person who had to learn about cancer and cancer therapies the hard way. Pump and dump traders in the biotech oncology space make me want to puke, so on seeking alpha and other sites I look for people who appear to understand the facts, who can pick out the flaws in trial designs, and make reasonable comparisons to other drugs on the market or in development. Seeking Alpha contributors who are paid by companies to do "research" on them make me sick, especially if one has to dig hard to find this out because it's not clearly disclosed. In the oncology space I have only found 3 or 4 people who's analysis is worth reading.
