I am the impassioned pundit at whyistherestillhunger.com.
I have long studied and written about hunger, as it killed some members of my family (a generation before me). Currently I am dedicating much of my life to convincing people that hunger can be abolished this year. A relatively small investment of about $30 billion would end the holocaust of hunger and slow population growth tremendously (as mothers are convinced that their children will survive).
I have also been studying and investing in alternative energy companies for several years. A generational shift in attitudes about the climate and air quality continues to move policy in the direction of cleaner energy.

I am an activist investor in US and Chinese stocks. I was previously an investment banker in New York Hong Kong and London for 9 years, focused on Equity Capital Markets. I look at both long ideas and short ideas and typically focus on a small number on names where I can spend the time to conduct very deep research. I spend my time living between Los Angeles and Beijing, China.
The goal as everyone knows, is to buy good stocks at a discount and sell-short overvalued stocks when they are at a premium. I have a background in business and deal with internal models, analysis, sales pitches and ad information daily. In my downtime, I am enthusiastic about the markets highs, lows and volatility. I believe in real lags between market and business reactions, with the former often in advance of the latter, and vice versa. I look to call manic enthusiasm with a distinct opportunity to go short. A change in sentiment is all it takes. I research fundamentals while scavenging for value.

I Know First is a financial services firm that utilizes an advanced self-learning algorithm to analyze, model and predict the stock market. Co-Founder Dr. Lipa Roitman, a scientist, with over 20 years of experience created the market prediction system. The algorithm is based on artificial intelligence, machine learning and incorporates elements of artificial neural networks as well as genetic algorithms to model and predict the flow of money between 3,000 markets from 3-days to a year: stocks, ETF's, world indices, gold, currencies, interest rates, and commodities. The algorithm outputs a predicted trend as a number, which in turn, is used by traders to identify when to enter and exit the market. While forecasts can be used for intra-day trading, the predictability tends to become stronger over longer time-horizons such as the 1-month, 3-month and 1-year forecasts. Visit us at iknowfirst.com
