I founded the firm Tarsier Capital Management, focusing on micro cap investing. I have an MBA, CFA, and CPA. I look for under-valued stocks, using the teachings of Ben Graham, Warren Buffet, and Seth Klarman. I also look for undiscovered companies that are growing quickly and are also inexpensive. I am the author of www.thebulldoginvestor.com.
I invest (technically) part-time, but I love the markets and immerse myself in them daily. I enjoy writing about my investment ideas as it helps me to organize my thoughts and I am happy to share if it helps others. I invite criticism as it will help sharpen my ideas, so please tell me where, in your opinion, I am going wrong.
Am a strong believer that most individuals (and institutions) would be better off not trying to beat the market - my last company was a technology-enabled passive investment manager we sometimes described as "Vanguard 2.0", using tailored separately managed accounts to achieve tax and risk benefits not achievable through index funds/ETFs. But have become fascinated by opportunities to achieve additional return without corresponding risk. Not all these necessarily contradict efficient market theory (e.g., liquidity discounts for dual class stock, e.g.), but am struck by how many of these there are, and how easy some are to identify.
I am an Israeli citizen- certified as an attorney at law and a portfolio manager. Today I have the privilige to "work" in the field I am passionate about- investing. My mission is to teach and apply value investing in Israel. I am inclined to quantative and empirically based value investing in small cap stocks. At our firm, Quantum Capital Markets, in Petach Tikva, Israel, I apply these strategies to my customers accounts -SMA, IRA and Pension funds. My investment gurus are Warren Buffett, Seth Klarman and Joel Greenblatt. This year I attended the Berkshire Hathaway shareholder meeting for the first time. What an experience! I also dedicate my time to finding the best capital allocaters in the world who can invest with for the long term.
I've been in the stock market for 20 years and have experienced both highs and lows from holding multi-bagger stocks to seeing companies go belly up. I believe in looking for opportunities with asymmetric risk where the upside is much higher than the downside.
Pursues the unfollowed, unloved or untouted equity in the United States and abroad. Avoids huge market caps, start-up darlings and companies with eager investor relations representatives. Follows microcaps, hundred year pedigrees and boring franchises with strong, but silent management who also own a significant stake in their enterprise.
This is a pseudonym. Started my career in structured finance, moved into corporate debt, and now equities. My investment style is focus on the fundamentals and figure out what the company is worth. Writing is a way for me to gather feedback and information, rather than convincing someone else to buy or sell. Please feel free to message me. thanks
