I am currently a student working on obtaining a Master's degree in Biomedical Sciences, and I have completed a Bachelor's in Biotechnology. While my background in biotechnology gives me a great perspective into high growth companies, I prefer to focus on equities that are undervalued no matter what sector they fall under. I focus on fundamentals such as Price/Free-Cash-Flow and Price/Book to determine the ideal value of the company and I research management and their prior experience to determine whether to discount or add a premium to the ideal value. I do not use technical data to determine what makes a good investment. Rather, I use it to determine when is the best time to open or close a position in a company that I have determined to be undervalued or overvalued.

Power Hedge is an independent stock research and analysis firm with a passion for macro- and microeconomic analysis. Power Hedge focuses our research primarily on dividend-paying, international companies of all sizes with sustainable competitive advantages. Power Hedge is neither a permabear nor a permabull. However, we believe that, given the current structural problems in the United States, the best investment opportunities may lie elsewhere in the world. The firm's strategy is primarily buy and hold, but will stray from that strategy on occasion. Our ideal holding period is forever, however we realize that both internal and external forces can impact an investment. For this reason, we believe that it is vital to keep a close eye on all of your investments. We do not believe in changing an investment based on short-term market swings.
Traditionally, we have not always responded to comments but in order to improve the quality of our research, comments will be reviewed and we will respond to issues regarding errors or omissions. This does not include our premium service, "Renewable Energy Profits," which is available from the Seeking Alpha Marketplace. This service does include detailed discussions with our team both on the reports themselves and in a private forum.
I am a private investor with a broad portfolio diversified across sector and size. Most of my writing, and much of the speculative portion of my portfolio, focuses on small and mid-cap companies in the healthcare and biotechnology sector. This sector provides the opportunity for outsize rewards, though one must be willing to accept significant risk. My background has exposure to healthcare investing and involvement with operating companies, which I believe provides me with a unique perspective. Currently I am an Associate for Finance and Business development at a clinical stage oncology company called Oncoceutics. Previously I was an Analyst at Osage University Partners, a venture capital firm focused on investing in companies developing technologies licensed from universities across a broad spectrum of opportunities including life sciences, information technology, cleantech, hardware and advanced materials. Prior to that, I worked for a grant program directed at life science technology commercialization at the University City Science Center. I also have worked at BlackRock Asset Management in an operations role with the money market and municipal bond fund groups.
I have a B.S. in Finance and Entrepreneurship with a minor in Biological Sciences from Drexel University, and hold the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation.
