OTCPicks.com is a financial and investor relations website committed to covering the micro cap market space including Pink Sheets and OTC Bulletin Board stocks. We publish our Daily Market Movers Digest and Stocks to Watch newsletters which highlight some of the most active micro cap stocks each market day.
I am an investor relations consultant with 25+ years experience steering IR strategy and outreach for over 100 companies across a range of industries. We launched Catalyst Global in early 2012 to serve as a platform for innovating the IR role to better address the radically different dynamics and needs of public companies and investors.
Catalyst's mission is combining senior level experience and counsel with targeted outreach and efficient communications to deliver real change and share price results for "smidcap" companies in today's markets. We understand relationships and credibility take time, and we root all our work in integrity, candor and a focus on ROI.
I post on Seeking Alpha to expand the reach of client and other investment stories we like - and to understand the nature of these new channels of communication. Networking ideas and working with new media is integral to the IR function - plus it's fun.
CG Focus List is a separate service we use to highlight specific investment stories brought to us by some of the really smart investors we know. Profiled companies can be clients, ex-clients, non-clients or desired clients - but they are stories that offer very attractive investment potential and commensurate risk (there's no free ride in investing!)
My posts are NOT endorsed by the Companies on which I write - client or otherwise. We believe in truth and fair play at all times, and at all costs, and gravitate to those who share that view.
Been in the Gaming industry since '88. Before that construction and Jacobson/Club Car dealer.
Did my first trade on US steel, bought the calls based on advice from my dad that the strike would end and the price would go up. That was in the '80's.
I have a good batting average as far as picking winners, but I am a terrible timer of when to get in and out.
I tend to look for mispriced stocks, growth, or dividend plays with a good chance that the stock will appreciate also.

It’s a redeeming act that leaves him feeling good as he prepares to step into the next life.
The film opens with the torture of a young man (whose face is covered) - 2 tubes are inserted into his nose, and (via a foot pump) a greenish fluid in pumped in through one pipe - causing blood to pour out through the other. The man's captor then kills him with a large hammer.

Lawrence G. McDonald has written a book on the fall of Lehman Brothers, with Patrick Robinson, the #1 New York Times best selling author of Lone Survivor.
“A Colossal Failure of Common Sense - the Inside Story of the Collapse of Lehman Brothers,” is being published by Random House and will be on the shelves in stores 7/21/09. Currently, Lawrence is a Managing Director at Pangea Capital Management LP.
At Lehman Brothers
From July 2004 through September 2008, Lawrence G. McDonald was a Vice President of Distressed Debt and Convertible Securities Trading at Lehman Brothers. He ran an extremely successful joint venture between the firm’s fixed income and equity divisions. He was the most profitable trader on the convertible securities desk 2006 and 2007.
The Subprime Implosion
In early 2006, Lawrence was part of a faction that called the subprime crisis, then he made over $46 million for the firm during its implosion. Mr. McDonald was highly regarded as one of the most consistently profitable traders at Lehman with over $83 million in trading profits during his time with the firm.
More interestingly, Lawrence McDonald was an integral part of a faction within Lehman Brothers that passionately tried in vain to stop the firm from heading down the road to destruction. Likewise, he also worked closely with Lehman’s credit derivatives team and saw first-hand the design and construction of what Warren Buffett termed as “Wall Street’s financial weapons of mass destruction.”
