I try to carefully trade weekly & monthly stock options with expertise in mining companies & traditional manufacturers. Speak & write fluent Portuguese and speak good Spanish. Resided twice in Brazil and once on Guam Island. Employed at the same large foreign-owned Distribution Center the past 15 years & completely 100% Pro-NAFTA. Smart individual investing is the preferred solution to improving one's economic future, as opposed to vast & vague government handouts. Seeking Alpha is the #1 best financial blog because of honest opinions & superb organization.
My goal on Seeking Alpha is to share my decade of individual investor experience with the community and hopefully learn something new from the community hear. I'd really like to learn about options and technical analysis.
I primarily take a Buffet approach to stocks. I look for companies with strong balance sheets, good management, and a wide moat to park my money in. I've also been known to dabble in some Graham cigar butt style stocks that are extremely undervalued by the market.
Look forward to hearing hearing your comments on my articles.
Please feel to message me with any questions.

Cabeza Howe holds two M.S. degrees in engineering. He has extensive career background in science, engineering and software development. He is a self-made financial analyst and manages his own investment as a business. Focused value investing is his passion. He coined the term "two-in-one" stocks to describe stocks with both growth and value characteristics. He believes in achieving exceptional long-term return through investing in those stocks.
Through lessons learned and experience gained over the years, Cabeza believes the "two-in-one" stocks should be found mainly in large and mid caps. He views small caps as unproven and prone to perpetual decline even following days of glory. So he mostly believes trading instead of investing in small caps, with only rare exceptions.
He was born and grown up in China and used to trade and write about Chinese small caps. He now thinks Chinese small caps are in particular an area to avoid due to the well known accounting issues. The way Chinese regulators handled these accounting issues along with reported wealth of high ranking officials also convinced him that China is to an alarming degree ruled by kleptocracy. From first hand knowledge, however, Cabeza is still a big believer in Chinese consumers. He thinks the best way to benefit from it is through investing in multinationals like YUM, MCD, NKE, DIS and AAPL.
I am a quantitative model designer. I build customized portfolio solutions for brokerages, family offices and individual clients around the world. Some of the models required the capacity to trade hundreds of millions of dollars.
I would best describe myself as a value investor looking for entries based on events such as upgraded earnings forecasts. I minimize risk by analyzing short interest, diversifying across industries, blending multiple models of low correlation or using market neutral strategies.
