I reside in the greater Detroit area. During the winter you will find me on the mountain chasing the fresh powder.
Due to compliance restrictions at my current job I will no longer be writing on Seeking Alpha, I have many ideas already simmering for when I can once again write publicly.
I write about under-valued under-loved and under-appreciated investments. The occasional special situation or large cap that has been unjustifiably slammed may also be covered.
As we like to say here on SA I want an asymmetrical risk/return investment or to quote a master:
“You’re looking for a mispriced gamble. That’s what investing is. And you have to know enough to know whether the gamble is mispriced. That’s value investing.” –Charlie Munger
When found, I'll be sure to let you know.
http://www.wangchukcapital.com As a value investor, I focus on businesses that I understand and trade at low valuations. If I can’t understand the business, I don’t invest. I identify potential investments by conducting my own research and due diligence on companies that investors appear to have become overly pessimistic about. My strategy is to invest in companies that trade at a discount to my estimate of fair value. I focus on deep value micro and nano-cap companies.

My name is Payman Winborn. Upon graduation from college in 1999 I founded a company that distributed computer hardware. Although this was a profitable business, I did not want to focus all my resources on one avenue of success, so I looked to diversify my interests. I explored real estate and finance as possible alternative businesses and discovered an interest and passion in futures trading. This is what I ultimately choose as a second source of income.
Initially, I imagined that day trading would be the ideal profession: no customers or staff, no inventory or rent and the possibility of unlimited income. And, more importantly, it presented me with the opportunity to work anywhere....from the privacy of my home or from the balcony of a hotel room overlooking the Pacific Ocean.
Unfortunately, I knew little about the pitfalls of day trading for a living. To begin with, I spent countless hours reading books, studying charts and conducting research in an effort to become a profitable trader. Six years later, and after the loss of several hundred thousand dollars, my efforts finally resulted in the development of a highly profitable strategy.
This strategy is primarily based on technical analysis and was developed for ES E-Mini S&P 500 Futures contracts from CME Group but it also works in many other financial instruments such as Stocks (NYSE), Bonds, Currencies(Forex Spot), Commodities (Gold and Crude Oil From CME GROUP,Globex,NYMEX, CBOT,Brent Crud Oil From ICE Global Markets), Options, Global Indices and CFD’s with similar high accuracy.
In retrospect, I understand that the biggest barrier to my success was the fact that I tried to learn everything by myself. An experienced mentor could have helped me avoid that painful learning experience....and saved me a significant amount of money as well as many years of frustration.
Today I am an active, and profitable, trader. As a token of appreciation for my success, I now share my tools and experience with other day traders. I believe that my knowledge and skill can help others become successful traders and, in the summer of 2010, I began to publish my realtime market signals and daily results online in order to demonstrate the accuracy of my trading strategy.
I have been trading forex for 5 years now with some pitfalls, drawbacks and pauses. Even though I am an IT administrator, I still find time to enter one or two trades if an opportunity comes up. Right now I am looking for new strategies to enhance my trading.
I've been playing poker professionally since 2007. Poker and investing share many of the same elements, so I naturally took interest in the capital markets. While I speculate from time to time, I consider myself a value investor first. I research for myself and share my work for free. I'm independent of academic dogmas or career pressures and often find myself at odds with the consensus of the finance world.
Recent cum laude graduate from Appalachian State. Degree in Finance & Banking. Intern with a large wealth management firm. Relatively active investor, though I do find the benefits of buy-and-hold investing to be substantial. Experience with running a student-managed equity portfolio while in college.
