Abdalla Al-ayrot is a value investor with a long time horizon. I tend to focus on misunderstood and/or under-followed companies where i believe there are a great amount of value that the market is yet to price in. Some people prefer to buy $1 for 50-60 cents, i usually buy $1 for 20-35 cents.
I have managed money for 5 years, with industry leading results, which i think is a direct result of my extensive and innovative research process.
I have also founded Ayrot, which you can read more about below.
I am private investor, financial writer and stock market enthusiast with a primary focus on valued stocks with low risk vs. reward investments. Often focusing on recovering companies with strong focus and good management.
Have or had held investments in pharmaceuticals, telecom, Oil & Gas, Alternative energy, financial among others
I keep half of my holdings in a balanced ETF portfolio and the rest is split into short and long term investments
I approach investing as a social theorist and a cultural historian. As a result, I am a contrarian. Studying the history of financialization, I have to agree with value investors like Seth Klarman, George Soros, and John Quiggin that markets are ultimately inefficient. However, I am not an orthodox value-investor. I believe in diversified strategy so as to insure maximum gains while maintaining a "margin of safety." Understanding that markets will operate inefficiently, I sometimes find "playing the greater fool's game" will yield nice short term gains. I have been investing for five years and have had proven results. I offer unique insight on fundamentals that most analysts do not consider.
Cornelius Vanderbilt has done more than any other man to shape our idea of investing. He was the ultimate contrarian. As an investor he looked for both value and risk. His approach to markets is complex and contradictory but can be learned from.

I trade mainly on sentiment & leave the more technical aspects to other Wolves, but I do chart. I have a group of traders that pool resources & $$$ to make the #Wolf-Fund. My persona on twitter @wolfofweedstreet only discusses Marijuana related stocks.
I Am the Wolf of Weed Street and while I love profits, I hate scammy companies that trade on over hyped pr's 3x a week and Unicorn farts. I am here to bring balance to the #MMJ universe...But always do your own DD and invest wisely.

Alan Brochstein, CFA, was the first investment professional to devote himself to sharing his observations about the cannabis industry from an investor's perspective publicly. He runs 420 Investor, a subscription-based due diligence platform for investors interested in the publicly-traded cannabis stocks and is also the founder of New Cannabis Ventures, a content aggregation site focused on investors and entrepreneurs in the cannabis industry.
Alan has worked in the securities industry since 1986, primarily with the responsibility for managing investments in institutional environments until he founded AB Analytical Services in 2007 in order to provide independent research and consulting to registered investment advisors. In addition to advising several different hedge funds and investment managers, including Friedberg Investment Management, where he participated as a member of its investment management committee, Alan was also a senior analyst for the independent research firm Management CV. In 2008, he began providing a first-of-its-kind subscription-based service for individual investors, Invest By Model, which offered two different portfolios that investors could replicate in their own accounts for $20 per month. Alan also offered The Analytical Trader at Marketfy, where he used fundamental and technical analysis in a disciplined process to offer specific trade ideas geared towards swing traders.
Alan launched www.420Investor.com in late 2013 as the premier source of information for "Green Rush" investors seeking to capitalize on the proliferation of legalized medical and recreational cannabis. In March 2014, Alan, who is a member of the National Cannabis Industry Association, began to focus solely on the cannabis sector. He launched www.NewCannabisVentures.com in late 2015.
You can follow Alan on Facebook (www.facebook.com/420investor) or on Twitter (https://twitter.com/Invest420). Alan also moderates a large LinkedIn group focused on the cannabis industry, Cannabis Investors & Entrepreneurs (https://www.linkedin.com/groups/6523904)
