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.
Started studying charts 10 years ago during my "free" time (remember that?) - had the "aha" moment... - and keep learning from it as time passes. Social Security and 401K's aren't gonna cut it probably and nothing's getting cheaper. There is a flow in any market - we are here to monitor the flow - the roller coaster - and it's fun after you learn not to get burned. BTW - you will get burned once in a while...

.....I bought my first stock in 1987: Telefonos de Mexico for 26 cents per share. This was before the ADR. It had been selling for 3x earnings, 1/3 book value and was growing earnings 30% per year per a Forbes article. I sold it for a nice profit but sold it waaay too early as it was a 16x bagger quite a number of years ago. :D
