I am business graduate with a professional certification in F&A. I have been associated with the academic field, teaching both short and long courses on Finance and Accounting but my passion is following and writing about good investments.
I have a Bachelors Degree In Business Administration. I have been investing in biotech stocks for many years, and I prefer to invest as a long term investor. With that In mind I seek stocks that have long term value! I primarily Like to Invest In biotechnology stocks and I accept the risks.
I Write for the Healthcare Sector and Stock market in general. I contribute to Seeking Alpha, Talk Markets, and CNA Finance. I run my own biotechnology website Biotechpicklist.com and in addition I post stock market news on my other website Wallstreetrain.com
Not much to say: I am a retiree who can at last be an almost full time investor, not quite a day trader but a short term trader. Not because I think that this will make me richer as a "real" investor, that keeps it's long positions for months or even years! It's just more fun.
A new position per day is healthy :-)
I live in Canada, and the TSX contains a terrible percentage of stocks that pollute and/or endangers the native population's health (mining, oil sand), I never buy them but wait till some of those are ready to short. And then yes I am happy.
Am I too pessimistic? I always do better when I short.
But this does not mean that I am only a shorter, not at all.
Very conservative with my RSSP, I love to risk a little more with two other not too rich accounts, one of them being in USD.
Trading is not my only "hobby", I am a pretty good dressage rider, and I love gardening and caring for older persons.
And as you can see, I love to write, even if English is only my third language.
I am a paramedic. I am not an analyst, I am not a financial adviser, I cannot predict the future, nor am I privy to any insider information. My only intention is to provide retail investors with the science and to clear up some of the misinformation spread by everyone with internet access.
I am an independent equity research analyst and consultant. I focus on finding small-cap biotech stocks where I believe there is favorable risk / reward because of misinformation, lack of information, or a potential fundamental turnaround. I provide detail analysis for investors and investor relations companies. I also provide due diligence and advisory services to companies. Some names I write on I invest in personally and will disclose my position. Names that have hired me to provide due diligence or advisory services I will disclose a business relationship.
I previously worked for Zacks Investment Research from 2003 to 2015 as a Senior Biotechnology Analyst. Prior to Zacks, I spent 1999 to 2002 managing money with Eastover Capital in Charlotte, NC where I focused on large-cap equities, specializing in healthcare, energy, and technology. Prior to joining Eastover, I worked as a research scientist for TechLab, Inc., a biotechnology company focused on developing diagnostic kits and vaccines for infectious diseases, between 1995 and 1998. I also spent a year working at the Fralin Biotechnology Center, and a year working for a cancer researcher while at Virginia Tech.
I have a B.S. in Biochemistry from Virginia Tech, with a B.A in Chemistry and a minor in Math. I have a M.B.A. in Finance, with a concentration in Securities Analysis, from Wake Forest University. I hold the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) designation.

I am a small-time writer/blogger who dreams big and enjoys researching and writing about biotechs and pharmaceuticals. My work experiences include food safety, water quality, pesticides, food additives, paints, plastics and pharmaceutical precursors. My focus as of late has been researching the treatment options for many cancers and prevention of their recurrence. Additional recent research has been in the stem cell field, an exciting field in its infancy but now becoming a teenager! My ongoing goal for investors is attempting to find under-the-radar or oversold pharmaceuticals or biotechs for investment potential.

Successfully trading, and investing in emerging growth healthcare companies is a difficult task. Over 90% of drugs never make it out of the clinic. Huge capital requirements along the way result in highly dilutive equity financings often done on the backs of retail investors. At PropThink, we believe that due diligence is the key to success in this industry. We leverage a combined 50 years of experience in science, medicine, legal, regulatory affairs, finance, and operational industry experience to analyze companies at a highly technical level. This detailed analysis and due diligence process defines our editorial strategy and provides our subscribers a high level of confidence in our research. Our focus is on identifying and analyzing technically-complicated companies and equities that are grossly over or under-valued.

Author of the critically acclaimed book, "Taking Charge With Value Investing (McGraw-Hill, 2013)" and the premium subscription service "Tipping The Scale" (as seen below). An analyst that ranks in the top 4% on both tipranks.com and Motley Fool CAPS for stock picking performance.
Tipping the Scale members gain access to the TTS Portfolio Tracker. Here, members see what I am buying and selling the minute it happens, along with what I have owned, bought, and sold historically. These are just a few of the features on the TTS Portfolio Tracker.
Tipping The Scale is an equity research platform that uses a numeric scale instead of the traditional "Buy, Hold, Sell" to identify the best investment opportunities in the market. Stock coverage is determined by market catalyst, and every company goes through a vigorous test in 10 different categories. The higher the total score, the bigger the upside. In addition, Tipping the Scale also provides a number of portfolio strategies to hedge the volatility of the market and protect from downside.
Check out my instablog for more information on the popular research service Tipping the Scale, including performance information, benefits, and how it all works.
