Over 4.5 years' experience on the buyside. Spent nearly 3 years of my professional career as a Research Analyst investing in public markets (stocks) and the other 2 in the private arena (VC/growth equity and distressed/restructurings). I am a highly passionate investor and always consider both the macroeconomic backdrop coupled with in-depth fundamental research to identify the best investment ideas, which are generally value-oriented or opportunistic.
I specialize in understanding the dynamics that underlie and drive investment performance in today's global financial markets, despite a muddling of views among regulators and investors alike in the new, free money era. Following the global financial crisis, expansionary monetary policies of unprecedented magnitude implemented by major central banks across the globe (primarily those of the so called "core economies") have completely redefined the ways in which the global markets operate. I am not your typical hedge fund or money manager who stamps a disclaimer on investment performance with the assertion that "we are bottom-up, fundamental equity investors" who "do not attempt to forecast the markets." I go far beyond this basic, fundamental analysis and offer unique foresight into major anticipated (equity and credit) market movements BEFORE they materialize.
I have a with a knack for identifying under- and over-valued positions and a strong understanding of macroeconomics. I constantly analyze and evaluate central bank policies globally as well as global trade conditions. I have unique experience particular to sectors such as energy (both conventional and non-conventional), agriculture, infrastructure and real assets (industrials, real estate, water infrastructure, roads/railways, etc.), in addition to chemicals and consumer products; however, I've been a generalist research analyst for the majority of my career to date. Options are a trading mechanism of choice, particularly when I have visible catalysts for near-term price appreciation (or deprecation in the case of puts). I also utilize options strategies to turn a profit with near-zero risk.

Just a small time private investor that is currently investing in oil & gas related energy names from Canada in order to generate dividends and income in case I ever get to retire. Still trying to find those monthly dividend payers for future income.

I am italian independent investor and living in Rome.
I have a strong interest in tactical strategies, and have developed quantitative investment methods through rigorous backtesting and numerical analysis.
Investing and setting up portfolios for the last 7 years, but full time since spring of 2013. I like to set up a target return amount and work backwards from there with different strategies.
Normally, I like to invest in a portfolio of high growth, marginable stocks, but currently doing the following in the current market rotation:
1) Buying high dividend stocks.
2) Buying tech stocks with high cash flow/income that have been oversold
3) Selling stocks with no profitability
4) Selling puts on stocks prior to earnings
I target a cash return (using margin) of 50%. Currently over 90% return, 65% annualized, since May of 2013.
