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 invest by listening to consumer demands for many products, looking to see where early adopters are trending towards, along with capitalizing on people’s own foolish buying habits when buying stocks.
I have BS and MS in Chemical Engineering and have a number of publications that range in subjects from environmental sustainability, chemical reactions, to chaos theory.

I wake up every day at 3 a.m, sometimes earlier due to living in Hawaii. Trust me I not complaining, but I do this because I love trading. Now granted one cannot trade everything, but I am constantly on the look for ways to make money. My favorite way is to trade options find the cheap ones and then enjoy the ride I'm always on the hunt During earnings. I am a chart guy , do not even bother with fundamentals .. always looking for volatility. I have met a lot of exceptional people in the last eight years trading everyday online, and abroad if there's one thing I have learned is that it is a community or as we say in Hawaii Ohana. I hope some of my ideas help and are very profitable ....... Aloha

I am an independent trader. I have been trading my own money for over 20 years.
I am focused on finding growth stocks that are priced like value stocks or stocks that are misunderstood or under followed. Generally, I buy stocks where I feel like my chances of losing money are low, but still offer the possibility of large gains. This almost always leads me to small and microcap cap stocks.
I joined Seeking Alpha to share some of my ideas with others. I hope they are profitable.
Please do your own due diligence and do not blindly buy stocks on Seeking Alpha articles alone (including mine).

With Seeking Alpha I have set out contribute the closest thing possible to an insider perspective and a visionary outlook on developments in and relating to the electrification of transport, in particular my commentary has focused on Tesla Motors Inc,. (TSLA)
My interest in Tesla stems firstly because this is a company I understand as its behavior matches my own experience in business to an extraordinary degree. Also owing to what I believe is its pivotal importance. I am keen to understand its interactions with the market still further through discussion and debate with others with varying views and expectations.
My background is divided evenly between science and engineering and brand building and marketing and I am equally comfortable in both the technical and aesthetic arenas but can perhaps serve best as an instigator and translator of engineering and business strategy into meaning in the form of brand value for non-technical persons.
From an investment perspective and as a business leader contemplating the growth in value and influence of a business, I am a believer in companies and strategies that focus on delivering meaningful brand value as the primary driver that yields all other metrics including the attraction of key and committed personnel, integrity in the design and function of systems, goods and services, valuable contracts and permits as well as financial structures that yield positive cash-flow growth and customers who are keen to support the company with both purchasing and promotion.
I am aware that the above describes the mode of conduct that is rarely achieved in practice, however it is no abstract theory that I espouse, it defines my own experience from the thick of delivering to those standards in a company growing at terrific speed from garage to dominant global brand. The body of commentary I have placed on this website is largely to aimed at demonstrating competence accordingly in a format open to public criticism.
Regarding contributions to this website, it is not my aim to promote nor to detract from the value of any particular stock. That being said, I am highly supportive of objectives I believe to be shared by Tesla in as much as they stand to be effective in achieving the widespread electrification of transport and the elimination of the use of hydrocarbons without reduction to the quality of human life.
I am also harshly critical of pseudo-science or other means of obfuscation that aim to promote the value of hydrocarbons as “green” or sufficiently “green” as well as misinformation aimed at hindering sentiment for genuine solutions to avoidable use. For example I have no issue with the statement “Natural Gas is cheap” but I will not tolerate the statement “Natural Gas is clean”. My issue in this example is not Natural Gas in the absence of a clean and economic alternative, it is selling it on an untruth as a means to supplant or suppress such an alternative.
If my comments aimed to expose mischief or to defend good science and reasoned thought in this regard yield no discernible justice for either camp, I would be all the more disappointed for it.
I believe that good business and good environmental stewardship are mutually attainable and in fact can yield better investment outcomes than clinging to old ways of doing things, and that goal has my support.
In the mean time, to the extent that any of my contributions here have helped you make a better-informed investment choice, then I am happy to have been of service.
I'm an Independent investor with a passion for equity research. I'm usually long term minded, but occasionally engage in short term trades.
My trading style focuses primarily on fundamentals, with short term technicals occasionally commanding my attention. I believe that making money in the market requires forward thinking investment objectives, patience, confidence, and a trading ethic that embraces the opportunities presented by short term downtrends.

I buy established, good companies with strong management, solid balance sheets, free cash flow, growing earnings, and increasing dividends. This is a long strategy, which buys value situations, combining the fundamentals of Growth at a Reasonable Price, with Dividend Growth Investing. This style has been coined as "I-GARP" by Clay King.
To further reduce my risk and enhance my returns, I enter positions by selling puts, also known as short puts. I practice Teddi Knight's strategy of using option premium capital to build positions, and use technical analysis, (Bollilnger Bands, 10-20-30 moving averages, and earnings misses) to enter trades, as practiced by Teddi and Dr. Samir Elias.
Amateur investor and graduate engineering student at The University of Texas at Austin. I study robotics, but solar power and electric vehicles are my passion.
2013 - up 85% after riding the solar wave then making a few costly mistakes with naked calls and overexposure.
2014 - up about 10% after a rough year for solars. Saved only by selling covered calls.

I started writing for Seeking Alpha in early 2012. With an interest in both fundamental and technical analysis, and a strong belief that both should be used when investing, I try to incorporate both in the bulk of my articles.
My goal is to bring a fresh viewpoint to the table on the equities I cover. I'm always "learning." Never stop! I encourage readers to do the same! I believe you can learn a lot from the 30 year veterans, but even the veterans must keep an open mind to the new guy. Each remains closed minded at their own peril.
I am an independent investor, focusing on small to mid market cap companies with high growth potential and perform fundamental, market and risk analyses.
I joined Seeking Alpha to share some of my ideas and interact with fellow investors for progression.
I also work full time as a project manager in a Finance/IT company.
Let's trade trade trade, and then trade some more! Love the ladies on FOX business, and Fidelity loves me. I think that's enough.

"In investing, what is comfortable is rarely profitable." - Robert Arnott
I am a "Value" and "Growth" retail investor, looking for opportunities in emerging and undervalued stocks, often counter to conventional thought. I use fundamentals to back up my argument, and also like to point out stocks which I believe to be overvalued. I have enjoyed nice gains from using my strategies, finding value in Research in Motion, SuperValue, ZipCar, and ClearWire (before they all jumped 60% or more). I have been actively trading for more than half a decade, studying mostly stocks. Having the privilege of living in New York, I have attended investor conferences, and sector exhibitions - I am particularly interested in the technological sector. Being a small business owner, I like to see first hand how certain stocks affect their consumers, by doing research in the public and on eBay (where I sell some of my inventory). There are always good investments, and I try to find them through both growth, opportunity, and value.
