I graduated from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities and worked in investment banking and as an analyst at Wells Fargo Advisors. I have extensively covered large-cap tech stocks such as Google (GOOG), Apple (AAPL), Amazon.com (AMZN), Yahoo! (YHOO) and Microsoft (MSFT).

I am a college educated investor with no experience in finance. I have been investing for 6 years and end up doing quite a bit of reading and paying attention to stocks and business news for my own portfolio. I have some opinions that I would like to share with others and this seems to be a fairly reasonable place to do so. I tend to follow a dividend and value approach in my main portfolio, but also have interest in speculative small caps for a smaller portfolio.
Free: Readers can get an e-mail once a day from Seeking Alpha that lists all newly published articles of ALL the authors they follow in a single e-mail. To get these updates:
- a - Click "Alerts" along the top menu tab (just left of the green PRO tab)
- b - Scroll all the way down, and check the box for "author alerts" (2nd box from the bottom)
- c - Then you'll be notified by Seeking Alpha once per day of new articles by all authors you follow (in a single e-mail)
I write for Seeking Alpha to transfer the investment ideas and concepts cluttered in my head onto (digital) paper. This helps me evaluate future investment ideas (and reiterate current holdings) with much more clarity, while also subjecting them to public scrutiny.
I'm also currently a CFA candidate (testing level II). I passed the level 1 exam in June 2015.
