I do not believe in good or bad stocks, only in good or bad prices for them. I am not afraid of volatility, and if I believe in a stock's prospects I will chase it all the way down to pennies. I am a patient investor, and if I like a company I will generally commit for the long haul. I rarely go short - the potential benefits in my view rarely compensate for the risks incurred. I sometimes use leverage, but in a disciplined way. Leverage and emotions don't mix. I always look at the math, numbers, and accounting behind any investment target or strategy. I believe that in finance the devil is in the details, and that most of the "macro outlook" commentary that pervades the financial media and financial forums is uninformed, pretentious mumbo-jumbo. I invest in many industrial sectors: energy (mainly oil & gas), mining, transportation, banking, and real estate. I do however shy away from segments of the market that I do not understand (e.g., biotechnology).
I do not render individualized investment advice, and I do not manage or solicit for management any third-party capital. My analyses are solely for informational/educational purposes, and may contain errors.
