American citizen, have made almost every business mistake to be made, but enjoy learning and taught history. Have owned construction/real estate company, hotel, have health and nutrition bus and lecture, weekly health talk radio program for 3 years, have been on boards of tech companies, enjoy researching and discovering small companies with good risk/rewards potential. I use both fundamental and tech analysis. Have no ego when selling and keep losses small. I ask God for guidance in life and give thanks for my blessings and family. Always do your own research and decide for yourself and with your financial advisor for anything I might comment upon. I'm 66 but usually feel 36. Good luck

Harry studied economics in college in the ’70s, but found it vague and inconclusive. He became so disillusioned by the state of his chosen profession that he turned his back on it. Instead, he threw himself into the burgeoning New Science of Finance where identifying and studying demographic, technological, consumer and many, many other trends empowered him to forecast economic changes.
Since then, he’s spoken to executives, financial advisors and investors around the world. He’s appeared on “Good Morning America,” PBS, CNBC and CNN/FN. He’s been featured in Barron’s, Investor’s Business Daily, Entrepreneur, Fortune, Success, U.S. News and World Report, Business Week, The Wall Street Journal, American Demographics and Omni. He is a regular guest on Fox Business’s “America’s Nightly Scorecard.”
Harry has written numerous books over the years. In his book The Great Boom Ahead, published in 1992, he stood virtually alone in accurately forecasting the unanticipated “Boom” of the 1990s. That same year he authored two consecutive best sellers: The Roaring 2000s and The Roaring 2000s Investor (Simon and Schuster). In The Next Great Bubble Boom, he offered a comprehensive forecast for the following two decades.
In The Great Depression Ahead, he outlined how the next great downturn is likely to unfold in three stages, with an interim boom stage between 2012 and 2017 before the long-term slowdown finally turns into the next global boom in the early 2020s.
In The Great Crash Ahead, he outlines how this next great crash is likely to unfold in the coming months. He explains why there is nothing the government can do to protect us as deflation takes hold of the economy.
Harry’s latest book, The Demographic Cliff, How to Survive and Prosper During the Great Deflation of 2014–2019, shows why we’re facing a “great deflation” after five years of stimulus — and what to do about it now.
Today, he uses the research he developed from years of hands-on business experience to offer readers a positive, easy-to-understand view of the economic future.
Harry got his MBA from Harvard Business School, where he was a Baker Scholar and was elected to the Century Club for leadership excellence.

I am an individual and occasional investor with a passion for biotechnology and stocks. I am working as an engineer with ties to the healthcare sector.
I build investment theses based on thorough personal research and end up picking only stocks that I think hold a very high and long-term potential. I specialize in micro-cap and/or European biotechs, tracking undervalued opportunities and basing my investment choices on the deep analysis of a company's fundamentals and its long-term perspective (at least several years).

I like to look for situations where I think the market is not accurately reflecting the true fundamentals of a company. I buy all my ideas in my own account before writing about them, so investors should be aware of this. I will also sell them before telling others, so, once again, please keep this in mind if you're following my ideas.

Bachelors in Finance, MBA in strategic management.
Individual investor since before high school using paychecks from life guarding, I was able to grow those funds to pay for my MBA entirely.
My talent is in learning and understanding the words and actions of management, analysts and shareholders to deduce the real picture about an individual company and in turn, its potential value.
For this reason, I focus on companies that can be misunderstood by the market and take a long approach to most transactions. So far, so good.

I have over 20 years of investment and financial management experience, and have actively managed my own investment portfolio for 15 years.
I have held management positions with multiple large companies, including Fortune 500.
I'm a long-term investor. My current portfolio comprises of small cap growth, dividend paying stocks, and high yield ETFs. Largest stock holdings: TSLA (since IPO), KNDI.
I'm fascinating with green technologies, and special situation. Currently electric car companies and China's embrace of NEV are on the top of my list.
Follow me on StockTwits (mnguyen_saa). I frequently post breaking news from China, charts, facts etc. mostly for KNDI, and some TSLA.
I have always managed my portfolio and retired at 55 - as it turned out I could have done it 10 years sooner, but I was worried about putting the kids through college. Anyway, I don't need to be paid anymore, I just volunteer. Investing is my only paying job. I'm very interested in passive allocation strategies oriented toward non-correlated returns. But I still play around with some of my portfolio for fun. Active investing can be an interesting game, and money is a great way to keep score. While Seeking Alpha is a potential source of investment ideas (lots of sifting required), I find it much more useful in studying behavioral finance. It's very entertaining - tragedy and comedy almost every day.

D.B. Research is a research firm focused on Chinese due diligence. Nearly all of our bilingual team is located on ground in China which gives us a significant advantage in determining the legitimacy of a given company. Presently we expect to be publishing mainly short ideas as our specialty is identifying and investigating fraudulent companies.

I primarily research small cap equities with a focus on the clean energy, technology, and consumer discretionary sectors. I focus on value and growth at a reasonable price with underappreciated/misunderstood near term (6-12 months) catalysts.
I'm also interested in controversial and turnaround equities, searching for value in companies that have fallen out of favor with the investment community by doing significant research and taking a long or short position based on my findings.
