Hi, I am Ong Kang Wei, a Singaporean investor intrigued by the stock market and anything related to business, finance and economics. I love observing the stock market in my free time, and I especially favor dividend-paying aristocrats offering products/services people need such as P&G, Kinder Morgan, Wal-Mart, among many others. I also love high quality stocks or mispriced stock opportunities that will be able to reward shareholders. Of course, I can only come to such a conclusion through extensive fundamental research and analysis. I am still in the process of learning how to analyse stocks more perfectly, and I must say that I have learnt a lot so far on Seeking Alpha. People whom I admire include Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, Charlie Munger, Philip Fisher and Benjamin Graham. I try to learn about these famous people and find out what made them successful. I also regard established people in the financial industry very highly, and always try to learn from them through their writing. This group of people would include Professor Aswath Damodaran, many of the other knowledgeable CFAs and also Seeking Alpha writers. Though I try my best to keep writing on Seeking Alpha, I may stop writing at times due to study obligations.

Paul is a stock investor with an accounting/finance background. He likes to look for value growth stocks and momentum news plays. He is also known as Superman on Twitter @super_trades and his blog is www.super-trades.com (http://www.super-trades.com).
I started investing while getting my Ph.D. at McGill University. My research was on behavioral correlates of neurological control of cardiovascular function. After 25 years as a Professor, I quit to do something more exciting and more difficult: live off of my investments. For quite some time, I specialized in Canadian Oil & Gas Trusts, other high income opportunities and special situations. In 2005, I founded the Trust Intelligence website to provide research and guidance to investors trying to wean them off of relying on sell-side analysts and to understand how to do due diligence from the point of view of an investor.
My personal investment focus, and that on my website, is still on special situations and income investments in Canada and the USA. I am focused on looking at relative value and great managements with businesses that have the characteristics to give them superior potential. While I retain interesting in the petroleum & income sectors I not focus on a few biotech special situations because they can be transformative for people's health and their net worth.
Active investor and trader since my teens. I retired early from my career in healthcare administration and have been a full time investor for 5 years.
I write about 3D Printing Stocks on my site @ 3DPrintingStocks.com, as well as small and microcap stocks (no pinks or junk!) at MicrocapResearch.com
Dr. Kris has two degrees from MIT because one just wasn't enough. Her life goal was to figure out the universe and having done that (at least to her satisfaction), she decided to tackle something even more difficult—the stock market.
Applying the scientific method along with an insatiably curious mind, she began trading stocks, futures, and options in order to find the holy grail to market success. She's discovered to her immense satisfaction that not only is there one way to succeed but many. Combining her love of cooking with the stock market, she's devised recipes for investment success designed to please the palate of most investors. Dr. Kris currently manages a private equity long/short portfolio and writes of her current research projects that appear on her website, StockMarketCookBook.com.
Her most exciting project is applying market timing models to Modern Portfolio Theory to not only give greater returns but at substantially lower levels of risk. (See PortfolioPreserver.com for further information.)
I'm an avid trader and stock market analyst. I'm always on the hunt for a great day trade or swing trade and of course look for the next stock to hit a home run and make it from the OTC to the big boards.
Fundamentally, I'm a trader and my decisions are day to day 60% of the time. I look over multiple market segments for trades without focusing 100% of my attention in any 1 direction. I've been around stocks and trading ever since I was a teenage and have a strong grasp on catching trends and translating information into making smart trades.
My name is Joe Marwood and I am an independent trader and writer with 6+ years experience trading stocks, bonds, commodities and futures. I trade small cap stocks using a semi automated model. I am also concerned with macroeconomic trends and longer term investing strategies.
I like exposing Penny Stock Pump and Dumps. Most of my research is done to help good hard working people avoid being scammed into investing in a pump and dump. Share the reports to show Seeking Alpha they are worth publishing this kind of information to help people avoid losing money in pump and dumps.
I am the blogger at PennyStocksPost.com. I will write daily blogs on the most active and need to know about penny stocks in the market. Signup for the free newsletter at our site, and read the daily columns on the website you will not be disappointed. My content will be second to none.
I am a private investor who has found a trading niche in the Cannabis sector.
Stock trading brings me back to my old days as a sales account manager.
I love the feeling of closing a good deal, or picking a winning stock.
What I write about is simply for entertainment purposes only.
I am not a professional. I encourage every reader to do their
own due diligence.

Proud father of four. Living the American Corporate dream where you can have 7 layoffs in 10 years and survive all of them. Look to invest in good companies that say something about me. Learning to be more patient, learn from my past mistakes. Learn from others and listen to my conscience a little more when it tell me to buy or sell because it is usually right! I am here to help others make money and share in this wealth.
Red Acre applies value investing principles to mirco-cap and binary event investing.
Our Chief Investment Officer is Rajesh Patel. Prior to Red Acre, Rajesh was a Member of Technical Staff with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, (MIT) Lincoln Laboratory where he analyzed the strategic value of emerging technologies to enhance the capabilities of the U.S. Military. Rajesh holds a Ph.D. in Applied Physics from the University of California, Davis, a Master's in Environmental Science from Rice University and bachelors degrees in both Physics and English from the University of Connecticut.
Red Acre's investment style is to look for opportunities where the intrinsic value of a stock is likely to go through a dramatic transition due to some future event about which we can predict an outcome relying on our research and due diligence experience. We are patient investors and are comfortable with having time horizons of several months to over a year for our investment thesis to fully play out.
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.
