Value investor seeking investment opportunities in which I can exploit my durable competitive advatanages of both a small capital base and patient long-term investment discipline. From a strategy perspective, I primarily seek out the rare situations where there is a positive expected value to an explicit near-term catalyst and the odds of realizing that value are generous in my favor. By taking advantage of these pricing inefficiencies, I believe I can compound wealth at an above-average rate over a long period of time, while incurring a below-average probability of permanent capital loss.
Or perhaps it's just better to say I look for 50-cent dollar bills.
