I try to carefully trade weekly & monthly stock options with expertise in mining companies & traditional manufacturers. Speak & write fluent Portuguese and speak good Spanish. Resided twice in Brazil and once on Guam Island. Employed at the same large foreign-owned Distribution Center the past 15 years & completely 100% Pro-NAFTA. Smart individual investing is the preferred solution to improving one's economic future, as opposed to vast & vague government handouts. Seeking Alpha is the #1 best financial blog because of honest opinions & superb organization.
Thirty years of salt mine experience as an institutional investment advisor, both on the Buy and Sell side. A graduate of Columbia Business School (MBA) and Chimie Paris Tech (MSChe), I started my Wall Street career with Brown Brothers Harriman & co, went West with Montgomery Securities and then founded my own advisory firm Capital Max in 1998, named after my first son. I could rename it "Max Brothers" but I am told to hold back. In 2009, with a second edition in 2011, I published my first adult book, titled "Anatomy of the Meltdown - 1998-2008. The Worst Decade in Stock Investing, or Was It?". Let me be clear: "Anatomy" has nothing to do with Sports Illustrated, except when the tide goes out. This is serious stuff, you know - that's why they call us "The Other Street".

I am a value investor to the greatest extent possible. I also favor dividend stocks. I try to be a buy-and-hold investor, but sometimes I can't avoid the tempation to ring the register or to accumulate the inevitable tax loss. The main thing I have learned is that I have lost more money by selling too soon than for any other reason. I reside in Henderson, NV.
