Full Time Trading Experience since early 1997 Stocks Bonds Commodities Forex. Started with 10k in Q1 1997 to about 20.9M at the end of 2015. My Instablogs will provide you stock realtime calls. The market works on realtime trading, I advise everyone to trust only people who post their calls in realtime. I am here only to help people take better financial decisions. I am not earning anything out of these calls. I am 40 yo.
I am a highly trained professional equity analyst. My specialty is finding companies with excellent ratios of risk to reward. Before going independent, I was the head analyst at a boutique Israeli hedge fund. Today I am a consultant to several multibillion-dollar firms. I have covered many sectors, including technology, solar and semiconductors. I have learned to connect the dots and discern how forces in these various industries will affect individual companies. I am a big believer in analyzing investments from the top down. This means identifying themes and trends that can reveal where industries and individual companies will be in the future. There are no magic formulas for this process, just a lot of hard work. After I've found a company, analyzed it and concluded its value, then it is just like a poker game with endless cards. All we have to do is sit and wait for the next card to reveal itself and adjust our thesis accordingly. Once we find the true value of a company, we must ignore day-to-day market chaos. If we have done our research properly, we do not need to worry if the Dow goes up or down a particular day, week or month. Peter Lynch, Ben Graham and Phillip Fisher are my biggest influences. I encourage anyone who wishes to learn more about the market to read any of their books.
I take due diligence very seriously and I spend considerable time doing thorough research on companies and industries. I generally favour dividend stocks for the long term, but also trade short-term opportunities when I deem appropriate, generally for value companies. I have a background in Information Technology.
An avid value investing junkie for many years, I have exhausted the people in my life willing to discuss my latest greatest investment ideas. So I find myself turning to the bigger audience of Seeking Alpha, learning a lot, and hopefully helping a few investors along the way.
I'm a private, full time trader interested in both long and short ideas. My training and background are in engineering including a decade of consulting engineering practice. I've since switched over to investing/trading which I've done full time for 15+ years and to which I bring a contrarian style. I've also recently become interested in writing and have published editorials at Forbes, PJM, and a few legacy newspapers.
I'm an investor and a Chartered Business Valuator (CBV). I have been investing since I was a teenager. I love my work. I manage a private investment company and I specialize in business valuation.
I'm a huge skeptic by nature. If you had to put me in an investment category, I would fall under "contrarian/value" investor. It's not an investment style that I picked but one that reflects my personality.
Regarding my articles, I think to present my ideas present in a neutral light, without any hype or promotion, which is a rare thing these days.

The Insiders Forum is brought to you by Bret Jensen, one of SeekingAlpha's most followed contributors and author of The Biotech Forum which is is the second most subscribed to service of the over 60 available via the MarketPlace.
Insiders Forum will be strictly focused on small and mid-cap stocks that insiders are buying. Some studies have shown that equities with heavy insider purchases outperform the overall market over time. The Insiders Forum will consist of my 15 top small and mid-sized stocks in different sectors of the market that are not only are attractively valued but have had some significant insider purchases in recent months.
We will build out an optimized 15 stock portfolio one stock at a time and track performance using a hypothetical $150,000 portfolio. The Insider Forum will feature bi-weekly portfolio updates as well as least one exclusive article a week on stocks with recent insider buying. Deep and exclusive analysis will be provided on all new additions to the portfolio. Our goal will be to outperform the Russell 2000 over time and the Insiders Forum's portfolio will be benchmarked against.
Our goal is to outperform the Russell 2000 over time as well as to be a sounding board for new investments in attractively priced equities where insiders are stepping up to the plate.
