I have over a decade of experience in the Financial Information Services Industry. I, Laxman Vembar, have a Masters in CS and am a CFA, FRM Charter holder. I recently quit my job to concentrate on a couple of private ventures and am sharing my thoughts on investment/trade opportunities in the tech sector.
I live in Stanford, CA and love investing. I am working on the creation of my hedge fund, Agloe Capital. If you live in the Palo Alto or San Francisco areas, feel free to message me if you'd want to meet up in person.
I have written 2 dutch books on value investing: "Aandelen selecteren als waardebelegger" and "Beleggen in bull- en bearmarkten". See bol.com (search for the titles). As a mathematician (Ph.D.) I am most interested in investment strategies with statistically favorable returns. In particular I invest in net-nets (20-30% average annual returns). I find companies with low Enterprise Value/Earnings before Tax and Interest (EV/EBIT) and strong balance sheets (20% average annual returns) also very interesting. Since such stocks are rare I invest globally. Send me a message with your email address to get example articles of my premium research on Seeking Alpha.
carefully investing but more often investigating; have had 6 decades of remembered losses in both public markets and private placements. Still a board member of a nonprofit and still holding shares in companies seeded long ago but not yet having reached their investor exits. Trying to be thoughtful about investments and enjoying the experience. Becoming less current all the time, likely finding me to be a doddering old fuddy duddy for anyone reading what I post here.
