Would you do if your were already wealthy? If you could do whatever you wanted for your career, what would you want to do?
This is what I would do. This is my self-actualiziation. There is nothing like analyzing an inefficient sector of the market and calling out the failures.

Tales From The Future (tftf). I picked my nickname because many advisors and investors claim they can predict the future of the (stock) markets and somehow pick the winners. I don't. I usually do not engage in short-term trading and myopic analysis (quarter by quarter, without looking at the big picture). I like to work with long-term scenarios with a focus on possible disruptions in the technology and energy sectors. I look into value and contrarian ideas as well as emerging technologies and growth stocks worldwide, both on the long and short side. I also like to discuss the influence of monetary policy on global stock markets. I am fiercely independent in my investment research and therefore use the image of a lone Ninja. This influenced my investment principles for the past 20+ years: Pick your targets with patience. Do your OWN diligence. Never follow the herd blindly: 'Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.' General Sector Focus: Technology/Internet, Value, Disruptors, Energy/Alt Energy, Entertainment Stocks and Monetary Policy/Geopolitics. Geographical Focus: USA, Western Europe, Japan. Sector 'Halo' Focus Stocks: AAPL, TSLA... PS: Not a native English speaker. I apologize in advance for any typos and grammatical errors.
Tom Feeney began his work in the investment industry in 1969. Clients have included cities, states and major corporations, as well as numerous religious, charitable and other not-for-profit organizations.
In his early career Tom served as Executive Director of Stewardship Services, Inc., Washington, D.C., and as a Senior Vice President of Atalanta/Sosnoff Capital Corporation, New York. He established Thomas J. Feeney & Co., a financial consultant to tax-exempt organizations, in 1978. Feeney & Co. initiated investment management services in late 1985, and Marathon Asset Management Co., Mission’s predecessor, was incorporated in early 1987 to separate those investment management services from Feeney & Co.’s consulting work. Tom served as Marathon’s Chief Investment Officer since the firm’s inception. In 1997 Tom assumed the roles of Managing Director and Chief Investment Officer of Mission Management & Trust Co., located in Tucson, Arizona.
Prior to his investment career, Tom served on the faculties of the University of Santa Clara, St. Joseph’s College and Guadalupe College, all in California. In more recent years, he has lectured on investments at the University of Notre Dame and Georgetown University. His own academic background includes a B.A. in economics from Boston College, an M.B.A. from the University of Santa Clara, studies at the Stanford Law School and additional post-graduate work at the University of San Francisco.
Over the years Tom has been interviewed on CNBC and frequently on local business TV shows. Similarly he has been interviewed and written about by such national publications as The Wall Street Journal, Barron’s and Investor's Business Daily as well as local papers throughout the country.
Away from his desk, Tom enjoys his all too infrequent time on the golf course. In earlier years he ran two dozen marathons or ultra-marathons including the Boston Marathon and the New York City Marathon three times each. The highlight of his competitive career was winning a relatively small field marathon in Carpinteria, California.

Invest. Manage risk. Communicate. Educate yourself. Make profits. .
My name is Todd Johnson. I’m a family man, sports fiend, health nut, technology buff, long-time stock investor, and a very lucky mountain climber, all of which has shaped my philosophy as a professional investor for the last 30 years. As my interests might suggest, I am always looking for the upside while striving to minimize risks.
My new passion, which I have realized through DividendLab.com project, is helping other investors learn more about investing; investing in stocks and other assets that are subject to wide price swings can actually enhance their returns when the right investment strategy is applied. To that end, I read company 10k and 10q statements so they can skip them. I compile and analyze the market research that isn’t always at their fingertips. And I don’t make any investment recommendation without committing my own funds first, which is the purest form of accountability.
