Part time trader, Basically long term investor, but here and there make some short term trades, (I'm still young, could digest some risk).
Former New Yorker, Love the state of Georgia!
I have written 2 dutch books on value investing: "Aandelen selecteren als waardebelegger" and "Beleggen in bull- en bearmarkten". See bol.com (search for the titles). As a mathematician (Ph.D.) I am most interested in investment strategies with statistically favorable returns. In particular I invest in net-nets (20-30% average annual returns). I find companies with low Enterprise Value/Earnings before Tax and Interest (EV/EBIT) and strong balance sheets (20% average annual returns) also very interesting. Since such stocks are rare I invest globally. Send me a message with your email address to get example articles of my premium research on Seeking Alpha.
I started out as a chemical engineer in the private sector for 9 years then spent the next 20 years in the US Air Force working in the information technology field. After retiring from the Air Force I spent the next 7 years as a defense contractor and then retired permanently. I received an MBA from Renssellaer Polytechnic Institute. Retired in September 2011 (under age 60 I might add).
I started investing in 1977 exclusively with equity and income mutual funds. Since retirement I have the time to manage my own portfolio and now manage a portfolio of income and growth stocks as well as bonds. I now spend my time fine tuning my portfolio to ensure I will never have to work again.
