I am a market enthusiast and part-time trader. I started writing for Seeking Alpha in 2011, and it has been a tremendous opportunity and learning experience. I have been interested in the markets since elementary school, and hope to pursue a career in the investment management industry. I have been active in the markets for several years, and am primarily focused on long/short equities.
I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree from Lehigh University, where I double majored in Finance and Accounting, with a minor in History. My major track focused on Investments and Financial Analysis. While at Lehigh, I was the Head Portfolio Manager of the Investment Management Group, a student group that manages three portfolios, one long/short and two long only. I have had two internships, one a summer internship at a large bank, and another helping to manage the Lehigh University Endowment for nearly a year.

Michael Boyd spent considerable time working for an RIA, structuring client accounts, researching stocks/bonds, and performing due diligence on separately managed accounts. His career changed gears when he shifted roles into a major investment bank, at various times supporting the mortgage-backed securities, derivatives, and ADR trade desks. He now works in entity oversight and control, identifying areas of weakness, resolving risk, and maintaining regulatory compliance across Settlements, Asset Servicing, and FX operations.
As for trading style, Michael leans towards small/mid-cap companies, as he believes better risk-adjusted returns are available for astute stock-pickers there. Firmly contrarian, he looks to buy out-of-favor securities that have an opportunity to revalue in the medium-term (one year to five year timeframe).
