As a researcher and technical writer, I frequently write for SeekingAlpha where I present my bullish or bearish case on a stock that I own or sell short. I have worked in the Canadian financial industry (fully licensed, providing services to high net worth individuals and families). My interests cover a wide variety of subjects and greatly influences how I assess a business. I use technical analysis, literary analysis, a computer scientist's perspective, an understanding of psychology and sociology, marketing, history, and more when making my assessments. Please follow me on SeekingAlpha and join the conversations in the comments! =)
A little bit about me:
I hold two US issued software patents, one of which is issued internationally. I have 3+ decades experience as a software architect and 16 years as an intellectual property researcher specializing in security. I've delivered 1/2 a dozen shrink-wrap retail software packages to market and spent 3 years at Xerox's Palo Alto Research Center (PARC).
I am an equity analyst and founding member of a triple digit million dollar fund.
Oh, and I think technicals are nonsense.
...and no, the picture isn't me but a notable politician, and yes Mr. Samaras has been replaced!
I am fully accountable for the recommendations I make.... On my Instablog I give a recap of ALL picks and their performance
