I am an individual investor who started investing at the age of 12 and became more serious about it when I started working after college and had money to put to work. My investment style is to find value in any form that I can. This leads me to primarily invest long in equity though I have identified the occasional short (VXX) and options positions as well. Generally I hunt around in the darker corners of the market and my portfolio consists of primarily micro-cap and small caps (FNHC,TFSL), though I have found value in mega-caps in special situations (BP, AIG) from time to time as well. My current investment goal is to put together a 10 year performance track record (2015).
