Before establishing The Stuyvesant Square Consultancy, J.G. Collins spent some 30 years building a career in executive and consulting financial roles, with a particular emphasis in business taxation. His experience spans work for Fortune 100 companies, one of the former “Big Eight” international accounting firms, and client service for large middle-market public accounting firms.
He has advised domestic and foreign clients in the tax-efficient structuring of legal entities, effective tax rate planning, mergers and acquisitions, corporate reorganizations, treasury operations, financial instruments, international taxation, tax accounting under GAAP, state and local taxation, and sales and miscellaneous taxes. He has managed countless federal and state tax audits to successful resolutions for clients.
His experience spans a diverse array of industries, including private equity, motion pictures and music entertainment, fashion, real estate, publishing, technology development, retail, and oil and gas. Mr. Collins conceived and branded the specialty industry entertainment practice of one of the nation’s leading accounting firms and oversaw the business tax marketing program for business enterprises of another large regional firm.
Mr. Collins’ marketing collateral and published articles have been extraordinarily well received because of his ability to present intricate and complex aspects of tax, business, policy, and politics in clear, concise, easily understandable prose devoid of jargon and irrelevant detail.
An astute, data-driven observer of business, politics and economics, Mr. Collins has advised political candidates and public officials on campaign, political and policy matters for more than two decades, and has twice been a delegate to his political party’s national quadrennial convention to nominate the American president.
His expertise as a champion debater and orator in his student days, along with his savvy marketing expertise, has allowed Mr. Collins to coach private and public sector executives and candidates on public speaking, speech writing, message development and successful business presentations. Campaign collateral he developed for political campaigns has been used in university courses as an “excellent example of persuasive campaign advertising”.
Mr. Collins holds degrees in Economics and Accounting from the Stern School of Business, New York University. His elective coursework included a number of political science courses, including International Politics, International Organizations, European Politics and other more basic political science courses.
As a professional in commercial real estate, my investment focus is on REITs. My goal is to provide detailed research on the properties being acquired and sold by REITs, as the quality and value of the real estate purchased by a REIT has an impact on the long term health of a REIT.
I choose to analyze stocks based on their cash flow potential, relative value and economic moat. I strongly believe in value investing and the ability of individual investors to uncover overlooked companies with attractive risk/reward profile. In my idea generation process, story-telling must be always backed up by quantitative analysis to pin down upside/downside potential. If you choose to follow me, you will not receive 10 or more articles per month with little substance. I tend to turn down numerous ideas, before narrowing on few compelling stock ideas per year. I have five years of financial accounting experience at a Big Four company in private equity, technology and real estate sectors and hold graduate degrees in accounting and economics along with CPA license (currently inactive).

I'm a trader who trades both short-term and long-term. I started my career as a day-trader for a trading firm, but then turned to longer time frames and went on my own to manage my portfolio.
I use technical analysis as well as fundamental analysis in my research.
I have been researching and investing in stocks and options in my own accounts since 2006. I finished my MBA in 2007 and then worked as the Finance Manager at a start up for 7 years. I'm currently self-employed as an online marketing consultant, but investing is my true passion.
I've found that my skill lies in taking the time to read 10-K and 10-Q reports carefully and being able to then create realistic future projections. As a value investor I tend to look at cash flow as much as if not more than earnings and revenues.
My investment horizon is typically at least 5-10 years, and ideally I place my money into investments which I could see myself holding through retirement. That said, I do also enjoy allocating a small portion of my account to short term options plays.
In our free time, my wife and I love to travel the world. We've each been to over 45 countries and relish the opportunity to see how people live all around the world.

Everyone has their own lens from which they view the world around them. My personal lens is analytic; I see numbers. I am continuously calculating the constantly changing variables around myself. I compute the quantity of people in a room. I calculate the amount of trees in a park. I estimate the grade needed on my next exam for an A. My analytic aptitudes led me to declare an accounting major. I joined University of the Pacific's Student Investment Fund, and fell in love with the financial markets.
