A rodent can do amazing things. Run full speed on telephone wires, chew through pipes and cinder blocks, tread water for over thirty six hours, but it doesn't matter how impressive all that is, we can't get the girl home anyway. The door is too small.
I'm a small time private investor, that likes to put my spare time toward monetary gain when I could just be stroking off. When I'm not fixing broken power distribution equipment or tending to household needs, I enjoy looking for short term market inefficiencies and long term trends.
Great fun on the "correction" last October. I was looking for a ten percent correction. Work was not my friend that day. I caught it the next morning. Still long as I write this, hoping I can keep my taxes down and my gains unrealized.

I prefer a top down analysis approach and regularly publish research reports on public companies on Seeking Alpha. Quite a bit of my research is around Natural Gas, specifically gas extracted from Shale which is revolutionizing the energy dynamics in the US.
I am currently a student working on obtaining a Master's degree in Biomedical Sciences, and I have completed a Bachelor's in Biotechnology.
While my background in biotechnology gives me a great perspective into high growth companies, I prefer to focus on equities that are undervalued no matter what sector they fall under. I focus on fundamentals such as Price/Free-Cash-Flow and Price/Book to determine the ideal value of the company and I research management and their prior experience to determine whether to discount or add a premium to the ideal value. I do not use technical data to determine what makes a good investment. Rather, I use it to determine when is the best time to open or close a position in a company that I have determined to be undervalued or overvalued.
