"Those who say, don't know, and those who know -- don't say."
I focus on analyzing micro and small-cap companies that appear to poised for outsized gains compared to the market. I reach my investing decisions based upon fundamental, technical, and macro indicators. I have previously worked as a volatility trader and long/short equity analyst.
I retired as CEO of an Automotive Parts supplier, and manage an investment portfolio for myself and family. I have a BA in History from Royal Military College of Canada and an MBA from the University of Western Ontario. My first career was as a fighter pilot in the RCAF, and, following my MBA I joined McKinsey & Company, Inc. leaving them for Canadian GE. I left CGE as a Vice President in 1984 and founded The Enfield Corporation Limited ("Enfield") which grew from 243 employees in 1984 to over 10,000 in 1989 when Enfield was taken over and I was replaced as CEO. In 1989, I acquired control of Algonquin Mercantile Corporation, renamed Automodular Corporation in the late 1990's when I turned it to focus exclusively on automotive parts sub-assembly. Along the way, Algonquin turned a few ageing drug stores into Pharmx Rexall Drug Stores Ltd., sold to Katz group in 1997 and today a major Canadian drug store chain. I have been a private investor since 1971 both directly and through a private company controlled by myself and members of my family.
I only look at stocks that have the possibility to double over a twelve month period and stocks in which the risk/reward ratio payout is high. In addition I focus on swing trade opportunities.
I focus more on valuations and risk/reward metrics as opposed to what make companies tick.
I have been a professional investor for over 20 years and during the past several years an economics analyst and financial writer for capital.gr, the biggest economic news portal in Greece.
I have managed money from time to time and have also done some seed venture capital projects in the past.
Private European Investor and Fulltime trader.
Legally trained with focus on commercial law.
For my buy and sell decisions, I use Elliott Wave Principle.
Fundamentals and education helps me to understand where we are today and where we are headed.
Annual P / E ratio = future lies
Fibbo, Gun, Elliot = The only one you can trust (psss.. Others do it)
Other technical analyzes will fool you and steal your money, just use them to get an answer to what others believe and why they always lose money

I marvel at the clarity of wisdom:
“The time has come of self-value. And the question is not: ‘To be or not to be;’ the statement is: ‘To be to be. I am, I am.’ The time has come not to search for God, but to be G.O.D.” ~Yogi Bhajan
World markets will crash during 2013-2016. Sorry to be the one to tell it to you.
2013-02-20: My best shorting advice is to short the Swedish bank Swedbank, with a trailing pe ratio of 20 for the last 5 years, almost the double compared to other banks in Sweden like Nordea (trailing pe 10 last five years). Housebubble will burst even in North of Europé. Have not happend yet.
