While investing in nokia I got interested in Vringo because they bought 500 patents from nokia. Since nokia took off I started trading vrng instead and so far I have noticed the stock trades with a $2.70 to $3.50 range. perfect for selling puts and calls. I am a technology lover. Love buying gadgets to try out. The best thing so far that I bought was the HP touchpad on fire sale. Tried out Webos and then put android on it. I like apple products from iphone to ipad to apple tvs. I also owned the Samsung Focus wp7 phone but got bored waiting for Mango update to come out. I am currently waiting for Nokia to come out with a lumia phone with Wp8. When the Surface comes out i will give it a try also. update I got the 920 and now own the 1020 and I recently gotten a refurb surface RT with type cover for $199 of ebay , a refurb but with 1 year warranty .... Now I am waiting for my last lumia from nokia the quad core phablet called 1520! with the recent msft nokia deal, I seem to have lost interest in windows phone. I am now waiting for the iphone 6 to come out, if that has a bigger screen I will upgrade to it. the lumia 1020 will be my last windows phone for a while. as a investor I enter positions using secured puts, and when assigned, sell covered calls
I am about to receive my master degree in Machine Automation. I have extremely high interest in Technology and Innovation as well as stock investing in tech companies. I am new in the later field and hope that Seeking Alpha environment will help to me to advance my investing skills.
PhD in Computational Physics. Developing new models for stock trading (focusing on long SVXY). Predicting future accurately enough for trading purposes is surprisingly difficult... :)
Contrarian investment philosophy. I am in particular interested in undervalued technology stocks with multiple x upside potential and limited downside risk.
I am currently long $MSFT, $LNVGY, $INTC, $CRAY, $VRNG, $OCAT, $F, $TLT, $ALU and $NOK. $NOK (and now $ALU) are still the largest position in my portfolio, although I sold 70% of my $NOK position since the Devices and Services deal with Microsoft was announced. $NOK/ALU, and $TLT are currently my largest individual stock/ETF positions.
I also swing trade inverse volatility (long $SVXY) depending on market trends. I do not touch $VIX or other direct volatility products under any circumstances.
