PhD in Computational Physics. Developing new models for stock trading (focusing on long SVXY). Predicting future accurately enough for trading purposes is surprisingly difficult... :) Contrarian investment philosophy. I am in particular interested in undervalued technology stocks with multiple x upside potential and limited downside risk. I am currently long $MSFT, $LNVGY, $INTC, $CRAY, $VRNG, $OCAT, $F, $TLT, $ALU and $NOK. $NOK (and now $ALU) are still the largest position in my portfolio, although I sold 70% of my $NOK position since the Devices and Services deal with Microsoft was announced. $NOK/ALU, and $TLT are currently my largest individual stock/ETF positions. I also swing trade inverse volatility (long $SVXY) depending on market trends. I do not touch $VIX or other direct volatility products under any circumstances.

early (ish) days on active investment. been in property for a while.
Been a great year, FB,NOK the stand out winners. Long FB ( $27, sold too early at 46.08) ,AAPL ( $477) ,NOK ($3.77, sold too early at 6.32, bought back at 7.65!), LCC ($16.06, sold at 20something, bought again at 23.25 before the merger),
Watching LINE( I missed that one!) , ALU ( bought at 3.77), MSFT( missed that ship), HSBC ( bought at 677p, patience required...), and of course ORCL, out of ex employee interest.
took a tiny position in FNMA at 2.35 not clever I know, but sold at 2.95, too nervous to hold.
oh...added some AMD at £3.63, sold at 3.75 to buy some bbry...again!
Retired state administrator. Active investor/trader since retirement. Mostly focused on telecom and healthcare at the moment. However, always looking for undervalued small caps and comeback candidates. Consider myself still in the learning curve with regards to active invesment although have good instincts and done well to this point. Enjoy the research and challenge of growing the money I've set aside to play. Always like to hear what othes have to share.
just an average joe investor . Change from aggressive growth to growth income so I could pay the bills.
But had to still keep one hand towards capital gains . Enjoying reading the posts and comments.
Been with SA almost from their start . I have a beer can for a brain so I thank everyone for filling it up with investment ideas and knowledge .
