I am a relative novice at investing, but regularly seeking to expand my knowledge and contribute where I feel comfortable. My actual background is in church work, but I left that vocation in 2012. In 2015, I earned an MBA from the Aix-Marseille University, located in in Aix-en-Provence in southern France.
The goal as everyone knows, is to buy good stocks at a discount and sell-short overvalued stocks when they are at a premium. I have a background in business and deal with internal models, analysis, sales pitches and ad information daily. In my downtime, I am enthusiastic about the markets highs, lows and volatility. I believe in real lags between market and business reactions, with the former often in advance of the latter, and vice versa. I look to call manic enthusiasm with a distinct opportunity to go short. A change in sentiment is all it takes. I research fundamentals while scavenging for value.

I am the husband of one wife, and I have one college aged son who still sees me as a mentor. I am a world citizen; a fighter of poverty through clothing the naked, feeding the hungry, and visiting the sick, orphan and stranger.
I am long several stocks but starting to transition towards all income growth dividend stocks, plus a smidgeon of S&P 500 Index funds. I am heavily invested in the Apple Ecosystem and a high-end user since Powerbook 100, LOL, although I was a late iPhone adopter, I've owned Palm, Nokia, Sony/E.
I have extensive international experience and am very multicultural in my approach to everything. Also, I am an avid science fiction reader, and have a collection of all the Nebula and Hugo award winners, mostly first edition.
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.

Ashraf Eassa is a technology specialist with The Motley Fool. He writes mostly about technology stocks, but is especially interested in anything related to chips -- the semiconductor kind, that is.
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.
