I have a B.S. in Applied Mathematics and Statistics with a Minor in Business from SUNY at Stony Brook. I'm currently a math teacher at a community college, and a private math tutor. I spent countless hours of my free time reading about economics, politics, and technology developments around the world. In terms of investing, I like taking high risks, so I follow mostly turn-around stories and speculative technologies with great potential. To give you a better idea of my style, I'm long ALU and NOK since the beginning of the year, and trade the ups and downs of BAC, PLUG, FNMA, and INO for example. I never short or bash companies, I just think is too I try learning the most from my losses by always asking what did I miss in terms of economical or technological signals. I strongly believe a macro level of understanding is fundamental before narrowing down to an industry or a company. I open to all types of dialog; I crave learning from my conversations; and I try really hard not to be stubborn with my ideas. Every time I learn something new, it gives me a new perspective to look at the world, and, just an in life, it is very useful in investing too. That is why I feel I could use different strategies without feeling much contradiction in their different logic. Wish you good luck to all in your stock bets, and I advised you to be prepared mentally for the time you make it big or the times when you lose it all.
