I am a full time trader that specializes in Value Micro Caps and the occasional Small cap.. I was a part time investor/trader for about 15 years and over the last couple of years I have been a full time trader. I find that the most undervalued stocks are those with little to no hype or company promotion. Those that few people know about. I make an effort to ensure that others find out about them.
I'm a professional poker player with an interest in investing. My investing style is build on the principles of Graham and Dodd: trying to buy companies that are on sale and have a margin of safety in case the investment thesis is wrong. I discuss all my picks at my blog @ alphavulture.com
I am an activist investor in US and Chinese stocks. I was previously an investment banker in New York Hong Kong and London for 9 years, focused on Equity Capital Markets. I look at both long ideas and short ideas and typically focus on a small number on names where I can spend the time to conduct very deep research. I spend my time living between Los Angeles and Beijing, China.
At first glance many situations appear obvious. Rigorous examination may reveal that the obvious is in fact impossible. My focus is on companies that unethically sell the impossible and thrive only with financial slight of hand. I am a retired businessman living near Austin Texas and I both delight and profit from shining some light on these deceptions.

Through in depth, due diligence, DisruptorSeeker hopes to uncover hidden opportunities in the small and micro cap space. DisruptorSeeker has learned, however, that many of what look like gems on the surface often have coal underneath the shiny facade. As a result, DisruptorSeeker is happy to look at both long and short candidates.

My name is Chris Wu. I work for a long and short equity hedge fund with a value oriented investing philosophy. My long investments focus on conservative long term investments in quality businesses with solid, sustainable long term growth prospects and accountable management. My short investments focus on overhyped stocks with dishonest management, deteriorating fundamental outlooks and aggressive accounting policies, as well as outright fraud. Before joining the buyside 8 years ago, I sharpened my skills at a boutique US investment bank focusing on M&A transactions in the agricultural, industrial and basic material sectors.

Stephen Simpson, CFA, is a freelance financial writer and investor.
I have worked for both sell-side and buy-side firms (equities and fixed income), with the largest percentage of my working time spent in med-tech. At this point I am now effectively in a "working retirement".
I write because I find that the process helps me take better notes, be more disciplined about modeling, and come up with a more coherent investment view for my portfolio management needs. If I'm writing about a stock, it's generally because I'm interested in it as an investment prospect or I think there's an interesting story to tell.
I don't share my models, so please don't ask.
