Dallas currently owns and operates as CEO an Austin-based enterprise consulting firm that specializes in private company lifecycle management, up to and including taking companies public, and in helping consult publicly traded companies ranging in market cap from $100 million to $500 million. He has a specialization in deal flow management and is often the referring and closing source of Joint Ventures and broader M&A. Dallas often works directly with management teams and Boards of microcap and stressed equity companies in which he or members of his professional network are heavily invested. This includes helping with overall strategy, helping with capital structure management, helping facilitate liquidity, helping facilitate Joint Ventures and broader M&A, and helping restructure the business segments if necessary. Recently Dallas has been interviewed by The Pittsburgh Business Times, The Banker, Columbus Business First, Houston Business Journal, The Deal, Energy Intelligence, and his tweets have been used by CNBC to highlight hot button issues regarding Carl Icahn, Bill Ackman, Nelson Peltz’s takeover attempts at DuPont, etc. Dallas has also been quoted and sourced to by StreetSweeper.org, Marcellus.com, MarcellusDrilling.com, Bakken.com, OilOnline.com, and other physical and online publications. "One place of great inefficiency is in the stressed equity markets – or the markets in which a company appears as bankruptcy or a breakup is inevitable. As equities become stressed they often sell down to absurd levels of value that present, should there be value to be unlocked, opportunities for “venture level” returns. These often range in the 3X-10X range. With my unique ability to actually improve business outcomes by working directly with a company and management/Board I’m in a position, should I view the underlying business as salvageable, to directly improve the long-term viability of the company. I am NOT simply an investor in these names but an acting consultant. This allows me to “overlay my network” and to move the company away from a stressed or defaulting outcome and into an outcome probability that allows the equity price to move substantially higher. Identifying these opportunities has generated shareholders and investors thousands of percentage points in aggregate and is something I’m often recognized by paying subscribers for."
I've been an active investor for only about 3 years with a combination of experience both long and short. My long experience is baised towards small cap oil & other commodity stocks with the long term belief that with money supply up that inflation will follow and real assets will rise in price.
I'm a Peter Lynch guy. I try to keep it simple, and "buy what I know." I regularly read Seeking Alpha, and comment far less than I read. I find significant value in the discourse that arises out of the articles. I used to post under "Tucker Kirk," but somehow "got lost" when I changed computers, which probably means I am not much of a computer whiz! I posted and predicted frequently on Motley Fool under the name "tuckman52." However, I now use SA almost exclusively as the starting point for all my research. I also invest in rental real estate, and have for many years. (Same for stocks.)
I am a Business Finance graduate living in San Francisco, California. Being surrounded by entrepreneurs, startups, and groundbreaking technology, has sparked interest in the business world from a young age. I began following the stock market even before I was able to invest on my own and this interest convinced me to pursue my degree in Finance. While completing my degree, I started investing more seriously and began to find my niche. I am now putting this strategy to use for supplemental income with the goal of becoming a full time investor.
