I hold MSc. in Electrical Engineering, speak four languages (English, French, Greek, German) and have lived in the U.S. for many years. I am also a freelance writer with one of the highest Followers per Article (F/A) rates in Seeking Alpha. My F/A rate in Seeking Alpha is above 30. After creating "Nathan's Bulletin" (a subscription-based investment guide for investors who can't afford a financial advisor), I launched a subscription-based Premium Service in Seeking Alpha entitled "A Fundamental Investor's Stock Club" which includes an unparalleled, actively-managed and high-return Portfolio of unknown and/or underfollowed stocks. Regularly updated and detailed lists in my Premium Posts PROVE these high returns. For reference, when I was managing money in the early 2000s, the annual ROI of my Portfolio consistently exceeded 50%. My Premium Research is based on a comprehensive review of company-specific factors, macro conditions, competitors and the industry trends. When it comes now to my publicly-available picks and my free Seeking Alpha articles, I have a success rate of over 80%, an average return per recommendation of over 30% and a 5-star rating according to TipRanks.com, which is the highest category quality ranking used to evaluate financial experts. TipRanks.com is a comprehensive investing tool that allows private investors and day traders to see the measured performance of anyone who publicly provides financial advice. TipRanks.com collects data, evaluates and ranks 5,000 financial bloggers and 9,000 financial experts. After almost 30 years of investing experience in the international markets (U.S., Canada, Australia, Europe), I have formulated a deep understanding of valuation analysis and my investment philosophy is firmly grounded in Ben Graham-style value-oriented opportunities that often have an assymetric risk/reward profile. On that front, I have created a unique proprietary database with thousands of publicly-traded companies per sector, which helps me spot the bargains and the bubbles before many investors find them.
I am a professional Engineer by education with 35+ years of industrial experience as a practicing engineer including middle and upper corporate high tech management roles frequently requiring extensive financial experience. Presently, I live in the Washington, D.C. area where I regularly attend, as an independent investor, federal agency public hearings, conferences and meetings of importance to my personal investment goals and strategies.
