I've been an investor for over four decades. I enjoy discovering unappreciated gems in the market. I look for value, but am not married to an investment style which may either be in vogue or not. I only invest in businesses which I can understand and feel I have the ability to gain as good an understanding as other investors. I do rigorous accounting analysis, modeling and valuation before making sizeable investments -- consequently I forfeit nimbleness in return for better odds of getting the thesis correct.
