I am an Israeli citizen- certified as an attorney at law and a portfolio manager. Today I have the privelige to "work" in the field I am passionate about- investing. My mission is to teach and apply value investing in Israel. I am inclined to quantative and empirically based value investing in small cap stocks. At our firm, Quantum Capital Markets, in Petach Tikva, Israel, I apply these strategies to my customers accounts -SMA, IRA and Pension funds. My investment gurus are Warren Buffett, Seth Klarman and Joel Greenblatt. This year I attended the Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meeting for the first time. What an experience! I also dedicate my time to finding the best capital allocaters in the world who can invest with for the long term.

I am also a CFA charterholder. Currently, I am a practicing cardiologist and Fellow of the American College of Cardiology with an MD from the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis.

Having recently started building a long term strategy for a dividend growth portfolio, I am interested in improving and learning better ways to identify and evaluate the future great dividend stocks.
I put a lot of faith in numbers and math, but where I need improvement is avoiding this garbage in and garbage out tendency and better understanding FCF valuations and projections.
