I have been working in share analysis, stock picking for over 20 years and reside in Australia. I have found a particular interest in micro-cap software companies domestically, and I have recently started to look further ashore in a personal investment capacity. I plan to review a few interesting US micro-cap software names over the next few months.

I have been investing in the stock market as a personal investor for approximately ten years now. I began my training in an accelerated pre-med program, and have continued both my interest and research in related topics. I only invest in companies after very lengthy deliberation, although am apt to leave the market entirely for periods of time. I have almost exclusively traded in the biotech sector.
I retired as CEO of an Automotive Parts supplier, and manage an investment portfolio for myself and family. I have a BA in History from Royal Military College of Canada and an MBA from the University of Western Ontario. My first career was as a fighter pilot in the RCAF, and, following my MBA I joined McKinsey & Company, Inc. leaving them for Canadian GE. I left CGE as a Vice President in 1984 and founded The Enfield Corporation Limited ("Enfield") which grew from 243 employees in 1984 to over 10,000 in 1989 when Enfield was taken over and I was replaced as CEO. In 1989, I acquired control of Algonquin Mercantile Corporation, renamed Automodular Corporation in the late 1990's when I turned it to focus exclusively on automotive parts sub-assembly. Along the way, Algonquin turned a few ageing drug stores into Pharmx Rexall Drug Stores Ltd., sold to Katz group in 1997 and today a major Canadian drug store chain. I have been a private investor since 1971 both directly and through a private company controlled by myself and members of my family.
I was born in Finland, raised in France and I have studied in Germany, the UK and the USA. I have a passion for finance and been actively managing my own portfolio of traditional and alternative investments since the age of 14. I have been very entrepreneurial since an early age and started my first company in the retail sector at the age of 16 in France and later acquired my first investment property at the age of 18 in Germany.
I constantly search for businesses with above average economics selling at below average valuations. My investment horizon is always long and my philosophy contrarian. I dedicate most of my analytical efforts to segments of the financial markets that are likely to present the most inefficiencies and focus on industries where I can have a competitive advantage over other investors. From my past entrepreneurial ventures, I have developed a strong understanding of the real estate, retail, and restaurant sectors and as a result tend to focus on these. My international background also gives me a certain edge over other investors as it provides me a superior understanding of the differences between European and American markets which help me to identify superior opportunities in a broader universe of securities.
I put lots of emphasis in getting a strong educational background in traditional assets but also in alternative assets. I am a CFA Level II Candidate, and will graduate with a B.Sc. in Real Estate Asset Management from my German university and a B.Sc. in Construction and Property Management from UK university by March 2017.

Asia/U.S. Deep-Value Wide-Moat Stocks is a research service for value investors seeking value stocks with a huge gap between price and intrinsic value, leaning towards deep value balance sheet bargains (i.e. buying assets at a discount e.g. net cash stocks, net-nets, low P/B stocks, sum-of-the-parts discounts) and wide moat stocks (i.e. buying earnings power at a discount in great companies like "Magic Formula" stocks, high quality businesses, hidden champions and wide moat compounders).
Those who believe that the pendulum will move in one direction forever—or reside at an extreme forever— eventually will lose huge sums. Those who understand the pendulum's behavior can benefit enormously. ~ Howard Marks
Investment ideas for Asia/U.S. Deep-Value Wide-Moat Stocks are generated from screens, insider trades, 13Fs, fund manager letters, analyst reports, blogs and forums. The initial ideas sourced are subsequently evaluated using The Cheapness-Safety-Quality (CSQ) framework, applying customized investment checklists to ask the right questions of the investments in question, along the dimension of cheapness, safety and quality. Asia/U.S. Deep-Value Wide-Moat Stocks' value investing philosophy borrows from the wisdom of value investing gurus, using both quantitative screens and qualitative inputs to filter the global stock markets for investment ideas.

I'm a retired IT professional that focused on large scale infrastructure projects. From 2000 - 2012 I was co-owner of an IaaS, SaaS company and understand the value and power of a recurring revenue model when paired with a sticky product.
My main investing interests are technology companies on the leading edge or companies with a recurring revenue model that have a technology aspect to their business. These are both areas I'm familiar with and give me an edge over a typical analyst.
I am a former hedge fund portfolio manager that trades for my own personal account. I espouse Graham and Dodd/Buffett style investing, always on the lookout for value equities or bonds. A graduate of Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management, I lived in NYC for a decade before relocating with my family to the Charlotte, NC area in 2007.
Currently I am the Chief Analyst at sharpeequities.com.

MBA student at the Wharton School, WG '18. Formerly summer hedge fund analyst at Rangeley Capital, focusing on value and event-driven investing. Former investment banking analyst at Goldman Sachs and Business Operations at LinkedIn. Graduated magna cum laude in Applied Mathematics from Harvard. Interested in value and event-driven investing.
I am an undergraduate finance student and value investor influenced by the likes of Buffett, Graham, Marks, Klarman, Greenblatt, etc. I am currently interning for a value oriented fund based in Texas, and I’m also searching for an internship for summer 2017. I can be contacted by phone at 1-508-505-8910 or e-mail at email@example.com.
For a little more background…
I started reading Graham and Buffett when I was around 14 or 15 years old and quickly began to develop a passion for value investing. People often say that something just “clicks” and that’s certainly what happened for me. I began investing my own money shortly after and then began to write for Seeking Alpha in my junior year of high school. I have come quite a long way as an investor since then, as you can see by looking at the comparative simplicity of some of my earliest articles.
Over time, my investment philosophy has developed into a strictly value oriented approach, but this does not mean we need to make value and growth a dichotomy. Some companies might be a buy at 25x earnings while others might be a sell at 10x earnings. Through a thorough analysis of competitive and other qualitative factors, along with a valuation through DCF and/or comparable company multiples, I will ultimately arrive at my decision whether to buy, sell, or do nothing. Most of the time I don’t do anything. I aim to only purchase stocks when, simply put (and it’s much more complicated in practice), not everything has to go right in order for the investment to work out. Although I think the strong form EMH is quite ridiculous and has been disproven by various track records, I’m willing to admit that it’s quite difficult to find a security that has an adequate margin of safety worked in. It requires that I constantly try to turn over more rocks.
Although I originally started writing for Seeking Alpha as a way to increase my knowledge and earn a little bit of spending money, its primary use has now developed into serving as my investment journal. I will give each idea I write up a thorough qualitative and quantitative overview, and make my decision based on the findings. I will continually revisit past works to see how the idea has been developing and where I may have gone wrong so that I can avoid similar mistakes in the future. I welcome any and all feedback on my articles, and please feel free to reach out if you wish to contact me for whatever reason (information above).
*** NOTE: Please ignore the "The Shrewd Griffin is bullish/bearish on..." messages in my feed. These are incorrect and I am working with Seeking Alpha staff to have them removed. ***
I am a hobbyist investor and I have been deeply interested in the stock market for much of my life since my childhood. After reading my first book on investing (The Intelligent Investor by Ben Graham) with my father at age 11, I threw myself into investing and this hobby has stayed with me throughout my life. I have used SeekingAlpha for years and now I have decided to contribute my own ideas to help others invest.
My primary focus is on deep value investing, though many of my choices also include growth aspects and/or dividends. I cover both individual company situations and sector investments. Primarily, I focus on asymmetric risk/reward situations, where a stock or sector has reached a reasonable bottom and has more room to rebound than it does to fall further.
If you have an interesting stock you'd like me to analyze, just mention it in the comments. I am always on the lookout for new investing ideas, and if the stock looks interesting I'd be more than happy to write an article on it.
If there is anything you particularly like or dislike about one of my articles, or if you can think of anything for me to improve on, be sure to tell me in the comments! I always look for ways to improve and strengthen my articles and constructive criticism is always welcome.
Disclaimer: I am not a financial professional, and none of my articles or comments should be taken as financial advice. All of my articles and comments are for informational purposes only.
I believe that people who are thoughtful and contemplative have a good chance of doing better than the average person at life. If I'm wrong, then I've wasted my time writing and you've wasted your time reading.
I tend to write about the economy or value investing in a Graham-Dodd framework. I write a monthly summary of the state of the economy as well as a quarterly summary of Berkshire Hathaway's earnings as well as various articles on finance or economics that hold a current fascination.
I feel that you should judge my writing on the basis of two factors: how well any firm predictions come true over time as well as the extent to which I'm able to translate topics into easily understood concepts. While understanding the world entails a substantial amount of complexity, I try as hard as possible to write in a straightforward manner that is easily understandable. As Einstein said, if a concept cannot be explained simply, it is probably not well understood.
I graduated in 2010 from Kent State University with a Master of Arts in Economics and from The Ohio State University in 2006 with a Bachelor of Science in Industrial Engineering.
I welcome any feedback or comments either publicly or privately. You can send me a message or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
