I am currently an undergraduate engineering student with a vast interest in the field of economics, macro perspectives, and investing. I consider myself to be an away from the crowd investor, call it contrarian if you will. I often challenge wallstreet analysis, expectations and like exploring sectors which have growth potential, usually those overlooked or unloved currently by investors.
I have a BA in Economics and another in Political Science. I've been working for the past 3 years in the investment banking industry, where I've been involved in several IPO's. This experience has taught me where to look when assessing a company's potential in creating value.
I recently passed my CFA level I exam and look forward to taking the next level on June 2015.
I invest my own money following a very aggressive strategy. 80% of my portfolio is allocated in a few companies where I see exceptional value potential in the next 12 months.
I consider myself a full time trader. I like volatility in the stocks I play and prefer to day trade shares. If things don't go my way, I move to plan B and hold stocks for no more than a month. I also like to play Options. Still a newbie so execute straight calls/puts. No straddles for me yet.
