Small business owner and investor. I've been involved with investing dating back to when I opened my first account at Olde Discount Brokers back in 1998 before it was purchased by H&R Block. My area of focus and ability is in value investing. I short commodities more often than I short stocks as I prefer to be a stocktimist or stock optimist by nature. I've only recently decided to become a contributor on the site as I'd like to share my research with others to help them with investing.

At Bio Vantage, our mission is to provide high-quality equity reports focused primarily on biotech and pharmaceutical companies worldwide. In our view, fundamental analysis of biopharmaceutical companies requires expertise in evaluating clinical trial data and drug pipelines, as these events often drive the underlying equity value of such companies going forward. Equally important is the ability to forecast future revenues, earnings growth, and cash flows using financial modeling tools in order to derive an intrinsic value for the company being analyzed. Once a fundamental value is derived, investors can make profits from a variety of trading instruments.
While our expertise largely concerns biotech and pharmaceutical companies, our investment principles are centered on diversification, asset allocation, risk management, and portfolio strategies. Thus, our investments and analyses also cover other sectors, including technology, financials, consumer products, energy, and commodities.
Bio Vantage's analysts have extensive experience in the biomedical field and in drug discovery research. We are lifelong investors. One of the analysts holds the CFA charter designation.
