I am a mechanical engineer full time and a self-taught value investor in my spare time (another full time job). My portfolio is highly concentrated in value stocks with a high margin of safety, or cash, but a small portion of my portfolio is also positioned in high impact positive black swan stocks which I believe offer a favorable risk/reward ratio.
