I retired as CEO of an Automotive Parts supplier, and manage an investment portfolio for myself and family. I have a BA in History from Royal Military College of Canada and an MBA from the University of Western Ontario. My first career was as a fighter pilot in the RCAF, and, following my MBA I joined McKinsey & Company, Inc. leaving them for Canadian GE. I left CGE as a Vice President in 1984 and founded The Enfield Corporation Limited ("Enfield") which grew from 243 employees in 1984 to over 10,000 in 1989 when Enfield was taken over and I was replaced as CEO. In 1989, I acquired control of Algonquin Mercantile Corporation, renamed Automodular Corporation in the late 1990's when I turned it to focus exclusively on automotive parts sub-assembly. Along the way, Algonquin turned a few ageing drug stores into Pharmx Rexall Drug Stores Ltd., sold to Katz group in 1997 and today a major Canadian drug store chain. I have been a private investor since 1971 both directly and through a private company controlled by myself and members of my family.
I am a full time investor mainly focused on US equities.
I consider my self a value investor, committed to the Buffett & Munger way of thought.
That means I like companies that are simple to understand, have a strong competitve advantage and are of course... extremely cheap. If I can't find anything to suit me I just stay on the sidelines searching and waiting.
Capital preservation is my most important objective. I don't trade much, I read and study a lot, and when I find a great company on the cheap I keep buying as much as I can.

After finishing my studies of physics in 1995 I started trading stocks. Since 2001 I have also been a systematic Futures trader. In the year 2002 I had the chance to work for some months on the trading floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (CME).
I have published various articles on this topic, mainly in TRADERS' and in the ACTIVE TRADER magazine. Besides these smaller publications I am co-author of a book about systematic trading. It is called „Trading Systems" and was released by Harriman House, London in 2009.

Long time private investor of Stocks and Options. I have been trading Stocks for 14 years and Options for 12+ years. I am extremely creative when it comes to my trades and I almost always attempt to keep things leveraged. The one thing I've learned is an investor should always be hedged and never be "Naked" in your trades.

We are semi-professional traders. By that we mean that we are accomplished professionals in other fields, who have gained knowledge, skill and experience at trading the markets almost as a matter of self-defense. We were dissatisfied at the way fund managers, investment “professionals” and/or brokers managed our money. Over the past decade, we have successfully taken charge of our financial futures.

I marvel at the clarity of wisdom:
“The time has come of self-value. And the question is not: ‘To be or not to be;’ the statement is: ‘To be to be. I am, I am.’ The time has come not to search for God, but to be G.O.D.” ~Yogi Bhajan
World markets will crash during 2013-2016. Sorry to be the one to tell it to you.
2013-02-20: My best shorting advice is to short the Swedish bank Swedbank, with a trailing pe ratio of 20 for the last 5 years, almost the double compared to other banks in Sweden like Nordea (trailing pe 10 last five years). Housebubble will burst even in North of Europé. Have not happend yet.
