I founded Seeking Alpha, and lead it for its first 10 years until I passed the CEO role to Eli Hoffmann. I started Seeking Alpha after working for five years as a technology research analyst for Morgan Stanley in New York. Seeking Alpha is now the dominant crowdsourced equity research platform.
I wrote the ETF Investment Guide (http://seekingalpha.com/article/15136-etf-investing-guide-one-page-summary-of-the-entire-guide), and I blog about startup best practices at http://davidjaxon.wordpress.com .
I have a B.A from Oxford University and an MSc from The London School of Economics, and am married with five children.
Former Electrical Engineer for the Bell system. Just looking to maximize my retirement income by selecting under valued stocks that are likely to realize large upward movement in a short period of time.
Consultant in the economics of renewable energy retrofitting - moving energy from liabilities to assets. Passionate student of the business scene, particularly commodities, currently not an active investor. Author, translator, blogger. Trading experience is more commodities than stocks.
My name is Kay Herbert. I have been an amateur investor for about 35 years. I'm a mechanical engineer with a PhD from M.I.T with expertise in fluid-structure interaction and I work for a private company in product development. My passion is to solve problems in applied mathematics, I'm one of those people that dreams about math problems at night.
I have no expertise in investment markets. However, I have spent more than six years researching MLM full-time — at first to find any reason to stay on board with a cherished domestic partner who was fully immersed in MLM and it's culture. My research consisted of reading a lot of others' unrefuted primary research and running theoretical simulations based on MLM structure and function. In all cases, I discovered that starting an MLM or succeeding in one can only be done with a great deal of deception and unfair practices.
The deceptions are deniable unless they're carefully analyzed; and advances in technology are exposing the unfairness essential to the survival of every MLM. Sadly, my research revealed enough for me to realize that my domestic partner and I had been involved in deception and unfairness for more than eight years. By then, she had become so immersed in the culture that she couldn't recognize the inherent fraud; and the ensuing values conflict between us culminated in our mutual choice to part ways.
My objective is to dissuade others from becoming collateral victims of MLM fraud. SA's broad reach and its commitment to the public good has provided an important platform for that purpose.
Having a front-row seat for watching Herbalife lead the way as the first publicly-traded MLM to crash and burn is an added bonus.
