The enormous advancement in the biological sciences that is taking place has begun to change the traditional way of practicing medicine. Far-reaching biological products are being approved and news about breakthroughs are occupying the media headlines. However, selecting the biotechnology firms for investment requires not only an understanding of the company's finances, but also deep knowledge of the company's potential and the potential and scientific validity of it's products and technologies.
Our Mission is evaluating biotechnology companies, their products, their technologies, scientists, managements, as well as their finances. Our goal is to impart our readers with the knowledge and insight so that they may have a heightened understanding and appreciation for the biotechnology industry.

Hello, my name is David. I am a swing trader on bank and technology stocks, mostly the largest market caps in these two sectors. I monitor the fundamental trends then determine if some are over-priced or under-priced stocks for possible short or long positions. I also follow the seasonality and annual cyclical performance of companies, as applicable, for position set-ups. Sometimes I play pre- or post- quarterly earnings if the investor sentiment shift becomes too skewed and extreme. At that point, I also utilize technical analysis.
My view is from afar at a lake in Oklahoma in a low noise environment. I have traded for many years and noticed long ago I did better if I followed my ideas and ignored the chatter and buzz. Someone will always have a reason to buy or sell a stock no matter what the circumstances. Patience and timing is critical so as to not force a trade. Don't go to the trade, the trade will come to you if you are diligent.
Therefore, the less noise the better for me. Accordingly, while I analyze macroeconomic data and the specifics of company financial statements, I ignore business media histrionics and hype. I don't watch TV and especially don't watch business channels.
I receive my own alerts for companies I am covering and have my own calendar for macroeconomic data I am charting for trends. Technology has enabled me to create my own databases and monitor events without reliance on location or mass media. We've come a long way from the old Bloomberg screens which were seemingly a miracle at the time, lol.

I only look at stocks that have the possibility to double over a twelve month period and stocks in which the risk/reward ratio payout is high. In addition I focus on swing trade opportunities.
I focus more on valuations and risk/reward metrics as opposed to what make companies tick.
I have been a professional investor for over 20 years and during the past several years an economics analyst and financial writer for capital.gr, the biggest economic news portal in Greece.
I have managed money from time to time and have also done some seed venture capital projects in the past.
