I have been researching and investing in stocks and options in my own accounts since 2006. I finished my MBA in 2007 and then worked as the Finance Manager at a start up for 7 years. I'm currently self-employed as an online marketing consultant, but investing is my true passion.
I've found that my skill lies in taking the time to read 10-K and 10-Q reports carefully and being able to then create realistic future projections. As a value investor I tend to look at cash flow as much as if not more than earnings and revenues.
My investment horizon is typically at least 5-10 years, and ideally I place my money into investments which I could see myself holding through retirement. That said, I do also enjoy allocating a small portion of my account to short term options plays.
In our free time, my wife and I love to travel the world. We've each been to over 45 countries and relish the opportunity to see how people live all around the world.
A graduate from Pennsylvania State University having a Masters in Finance. Hadi is an investor who focuses on undervalued stocks with a strong balance sheet and cash flow. Most of his picks are small companies which few investors hear about. He calculated the true value of Gold Resource (http://seekingalpha.com/article/3970019-gold-resource-biggest-gold-opportunity?source=all_articles_title) and saw his investment double in a couple of months. He is focusing lately on gold miners since he is aware from other sectors in this environment (See his article about SPY Get Your Shorts Ready).
Ex hedge fund analyst. I'm a fervent believer in the principles of value investing and consider it the foundation upon which all successful investing is built. I try and follow the mantra of capital preservation first and capital appreciation second. I feel strongly the best results will be attained by concentrating ones ideas and investing only in those businesses that you believe have excellent competitive positions, good management (hopefully with large holdings) and are trading at a discount to intrinsic value.
I run the blog www.nucleusportfolio.com which is a highly concentrated portfolio managed for family.
