If you like what you read don't hesitate to message me. My research is self directed and my views are completely my own. No requests from Investor Relations personnel please.
My professional experience is in investment banking and public sector finance.
Outside of work, I manage my own high-conviction portfolio consisting of companies (1) with a strong competitive position, (2) trading at a substantial discount to fundamental value, and (3) with a product offering I can easily understand and evaluate.
I am not a trader, and have an investment horizon of at least two years. I am a patient investor, who will research stocks thoroughly and hold out for the best buy opportunities.
I hope to contribute to the Seeking Alpha community through sharing (1) professional Excel models with readers and (2) unique insights, that are relevant to the stock's performance, and not over-blogged about
Stephen Simpson, CFA, is a freelance financial writer and investor.
I have worked for both sell-side and buy-side firms (equities and fixed income), with the largest percentage of my working time spent in med-tech. At this point I am now effectively in a "working retirement".
I write because I find that the process helps me take better notes, be more disciplined about modeling, and come up with a more coherent investment view for my portfolio management needs. If I'm writing about a stock, it's generally because I'm interested in it as an investment prospect or I think there's an interesting story to tell.
I don't share my models, so please don't ask.
