Retail Investor, Shareholder Advocate and Editor of Stocks DD blog. You are cautioned to read the disclaimer in Seeking Alpha before reading my articles. I am NOT a registered investment adviser. My articles are ONLY for informative purposes and should NOT be treated as investment advice.
My investment philosophy:
1. Invest in Strong businesses (high barriers to entry) 2. Invest in Management with excellent track record for shareholder value creation 3. Invest at undervalued prices
Invest in special situations (bankruptcy or other restructuring) or Drug development firms, where there is with an asymmetric reward/risk...where I have strong conviction on a reward event.
I am also interested in the shareholders topics in publicly listed companies:
1. Shareholder rights 2. Giving shareholders a voice incl shareholder participation in value creation 3. Improving board and management's accountability to shareholders
Be a shareholder advocate and work towards insuring boards and management "do the right thing for shareholders", maximizing and protecting shareholder's value.

40 year veteran in agricultural marketing. My investment philosophy is biased towards value where free cash flow and its sustainability trump everything else. I favor dividend paying stocks with a history of stable and increasing dividends over time supported by sustainable payout ratios. Besides traditional equities, I also like Preferred stocks, Master Limited Partnerships, Business Development Companies, and certain Closed End Funds selling at discounts to NAV whose distributions reflect actual income rather than just return of capital.
