I've been investing since 2008. I love learning how to invest and I enjoy sharing my knowledge with as many investors as I can. I refuse to take my money out of investments to pay for things like kitchen renovations, water softeners and furniture. My wife isn't happy about this. Update: My wife is forcing a kitchen renovation on me. It is a very painful process but I'm learning to deal with it.
Rocco Pendola is an associate editor at Seeking Alpha focusing on technology and the sectors it overlaps with.
In addition to technology, I am interested in dividend growth and income investing.
I make references to music I'm obsessed with (e.g., Old 97s, Elliott Smith, Bruce Springsteen) in my writing. If you notice any of these references, it makes me happy.
I am a strong believer of compounding dividends by reinvesting the payments back into the company that paid them. I will continue to search for undervalued companies to invest in, and evaluate my current holdings as needed. I find that allowing companies to do their job, builds my wealth. I will continue to hold these companies as long as the underlying fundamentals do not change.
Hi, I am Ong Kang Wei, a Singaporean investor intrigued by the stock market and anything related to business, finance and economics. I love observing the stock market in my free time, and I especially favor dividend-paying aristocrats offering products/services people need such as P&G, Kinder Morgan, Wal-Mart, among many others. I also love high quality stocks or mispriced stock opportunities that will be able to reward shareholders. Of course, I can only come to such a conclusion through extensive fundamental research and analysis. I am still in the process of learning how to analyse stocks more perfectly, and I must say that I have learnt a lot so far on Seeking Alpha. People whom I admire include Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, Charlie Munger, Philip Fisher and Benjamin Graham. I try to learn about these famous people and find out what made them successful. I also regard established people in the financial industry very highly, and always try to learn from them through their writing. This group of people would include Professor Aswath Damodaran, many of the other knowledgeable CFAs and also Seeking Alpha writers. Though I try my best to keep writing on Seeking Alpha, I may stop writing at times due to study obligations.

A common sense, do it yourself, retail investor. My career has taken me from NYC advertising with national and international agency clients to Hollywood entertainment branding for domestic and global networks. I evaluate companies from the perspective of how they market and brand their products and services. I look at perception for near term movement and promise for long-term patterns.
I am interested in both applied and theoretical mathematics so investing is a good outlet for me. I did a triple major in math, physics and astrophysics at the University of Toronto, and now I'm working on a double masters and phd in electrical/mechanical engineering at Penn State.
I'd say my investment strategy is generally just common sense and working with the financials and not the stories, which is pretty much how I interpreted Ben Graham's texts. I call it common sense, but half the articles on this website seem to seriously lack it, so maybe it's not that common.
My research interests are in artificial intelligence, machine learning, data mining, pattern recognition, signal processing, stochastic calculus, information theory, convex optimization etc.
