36 years old. Native German. I work as an equity analyst at a boutique Investment Bank in Europe. I started investing privately in 2001 - just to get burned badly. Got back to investing my private wealth in 2013 with great success so far. I prefer momentum and value strategies. Typically looking for out-of-favour stocks with quality business models. Use fundamental analysis (competitive strategy, defensibility, structural growth potential, valuation, free cash generation) combined with technical analysis for entry/exit points. I am willing to hold high conviction ideas for 1-2 years but will trade in and out of positions depending on news flow and technical indicators (oversold, overbought). I am currently heavily invested into oil and commodities (zinc, copper).
Semi retired physician with degrees in Chemistry, Physics, Math, and an MD but really just an engineer at heart ; ) Investing for over 40 years using a combination of fundamental research to pick companies and technical research to time buys and sells. Use some conservative option strategies to boost returns, sell puts on stocks I want to buy to lower my entry cost and sell covered calls when stocks I own appear to be over bought.
I have worked for almost 30 years in the custody end of financial services in the Midwest USA. My interests are personal investing to earn income and prepare for retirement and more contribution to the church and society.
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.
