Uncover. Alert. Value. I am the Value Vigilante. I dig deep through corporate filings, conference calls, investor presentations, and other publicly available information to uncover valuable information others have overlooked. I take a long or short position and then alert the public to my findings. I began my investing career as a day-trader in 1995 and was very successful. I progressed to become a fundamentals-based value investor after my portfolio grew to large to day-trade. I have over 18 years of investment experience. I maintain a balanced portfolio of long and short positions to profit from both good markets and bad. I will write about opportunities (both long and short) where I believe the market has clearly overlooked key fundamental information (either good or bad).
