Hey this is Eva Brain. I have done my graduation from St Louis College with my majors being finance electives. I am planning to enroll in a master’s program after acquiring some field experience. My area of interest is financial research which includes financial modeling, statement analysis, etc. I wish to achieve professional certification in finance after completing my masters.
I am an individual investor. My research in some companies has inspired me to use advanced trading strategies such as options/option spreads in order to achieve higher gains without drastically higher risk. I have a preference for investing in technology oriented industries. I write on seeking alpha simply to explain my reasoning behind positions on specific stocks. Since I tend to follow a few companies at a time closely, my positions are based on extensive knowledge of the stock and the company (reading 10-Q's, daily articles, quarterly reports, press releases, watching interviews and presentations, consulting owners of the product of the company, etc.). I write on Seeking Alpha to explain a thesis that I have developed about each stock.
Professional Mechanical Engineer with 20 years experience in large commercial aircraft maintenance engineering . Personal stock investor with high interest in power storage and management as well as solar. Owner of a Nissan Leaf since August 2013. Proud (French) Canadian.
Entrepreneur in the internet sector, but with a sideline fascination in the rapidly converging opportunities and memes around Tesla (plus Solar City, SpaceX and of course Elon Musk), and Global Warming (as articulated by 350.org and Bill McKibben and his "Do the Math" tour downunder).
Hi! I'm retired on disability and trying to grow an inheritance that my father left me. This year stocks and bonds both seem overpriced to me compared to commodities, so I'm long gold and palladium. Part of my portfolio I speculate with in TSLA or ETFs or hold in cash.
My career was in computer programming and I still like to keep up with tech developments. My family owned a car dealership so I also know a fair amount about the auto industry.
By profession, I am a film/television producer and editor. The bulk of my work is creating movie trailers and promos. However, the majority of my income comes from investing in stocks. I do not go through a broker. I trade with Scottrade, do my own homework and make my own calls. I do not adhere to many common conventions of investing, such as diversification, or buying the bulls. I follow companies that create a product that pushes its industry. Even if they are small, if they are doing something revolutionary that can change the industry, that's where I put my money. I don't short stocks, and I usually go long. It's worked out for me so far.
Retired anchor and market analyst who served for sixteen years with the daily "Stock Market Observer" program on Chicago's WCIU-TV. Previously a real estate broker and stockbroker. Author of "The Investor's Guide to Technical Analysis" published by McGraw-Hill. Vietnam War veteran. Degree in business management from NIU.
Interested in all renewable energy solutions and electric vehicles. Have driven an EV for over a decade and know for a fact that this is the only sustainable future for transporation that we are likely to see proliferate in the near future.
I have taken serious steps to facilitate myself and tried to learn as much as I could by reading books, attending fin. courses, taking advices from friends who seems doing good in stock market, imitating/testing the ways of trades read from books and shared by capable friends, both in speculating or investing.
Not long ago and finally, I am able to make more money in stock market than in my profession. Naturally, I jumped into the financial markets and treat investment/ speculation as my other business to generate more income that I deserve.
I am a recognized expert on cost of capital, having testified in approximately 400 cases in 26 states, US federal cases, and in Canada. Most of these cases involved valuations for multi-billion dollar companies. Education background includes degrees in finance and engineering.
I invest for myself and family members with well above average success. I invest in very few stocks at one time, and am currently 100% long on TSLA which I expect to begin its steady march upwards shortly before the release of the Model S and continue until they are bought or another company dethrones them as the leader in electric vehicle technology.
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.
