Street One Financial LLC (S1F or Street One) is an independent entity affiliated with Precision Securities, LLC., a full service registered broker dealer and a member of FINRA/SIPC. Street One specializes in educating, evaluating and trading ETFs, equities and options. Our firm assists portfolio managers in constructing their portfolios and identifying which ETF products may provide the best desired exposure by specific manager objective, fees and liquidity. The ETF/ETP landscape is evolving rapidly and has diversified quickly beyond passive equity index ETFs. Now actively managed strategies, fundamental and quantitative ETFs, as well as those that offer exposure to fixed income, commodities or even volatility indexes are available to all investors. Street One believes the key to understanding this rapidly changing environment is to learn how specific products work and where they may fit within a manager's portfolio. In addition to ETFs, options, and equities, we also handle closed end funds (CEF) trade execution and access to liquidity. All Street One Financial trades are executed by Precision Securities, LLC.

Ronald J. Heller - Chief Executive Officer & Senior Portfolio Manager
Prior to Mr. Heller’s investment career, he had a seven year career in the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers, winning a Super Bowl Ring in Super Bowl XXIII, Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks, retiring in 1993. Beginning in 1993, Mr. Heller spent two years at Smith Barney as a financial consultant where he worked with Tim Gramatovich.
Mr. Heller attended Oregon State University where he played football while majoring in Kinesiology and Secondary Education. He received his California State Coaching Certification through UCSB and also attended the University of San Francisco in his off-season with the San Francisco 49ers, taking business accounting and tax law courses.
Mr. Heller co-founded Peritus Asset Management, Inc. in 19951. As Senior Portfolio Manager, he is responsible for the portfolio management and trading activities for Peritus, ensuring that the firm’s strategy is properly implemented and that the clients receive the best execution on all trades. Over the past 15 years, Mr. Heller has developed long standing relationships across Wall Street for new issue and secondary trading in both the Investment Grade and High Yield assets classes. As high yield bonds are not an “exchange-traded” asset class, the ability to find, negotiate and acquire bonds is a critical component of portfolio performance. Additionally, Mr. Heller has been responsible for the maintenance of all custody and investment dealer relationships and sits on the investment committee.
Peritus Asset Management, Inc. was founded in 1995 and continued in operation through April 2002. The assets were then acquired and the name was changed to Core Wealth Management, LLC. The investment team remained at Core Wealth Management, until leaving to form Peritus I Asset Management, LLC in May 2004. The investment team and process remained the same through the various entities.

I am a retired "Market Enthusiast", who will leave this world, after many more years and despite my misgivings and at times VERY UNSURE behavior, better than I found it because I wasn't in charge!
I am a student enrolled in the Business Economics program at Ryerson University. I have been researching and analyzing stocks both technically and analytically for about 2-3 years. I strive to provide critical, up-to-date information for investors that have positions in various companies. Currently working part-time at Toronto Hockey Repair and Goalie Heaven, considered the best hockey store in the world.
Full time investor interested in all kinds of stocks to build a diversified portfolio. Always looking for blue chip dividend stocks or challengers as the foundation and then high risk growth stocks to hold for the long term. Interested in all sectors and open to all stock ideas!
I am an individual investor not associated with any big companies or trading firms. I am primarily interested in keeping a well balanced portfolio with exposure to a little bit of everything. Dividends are my foundation and I have been slowly adding growth stocks to get a little more diversified for the long haul
