I am a Private Investor. Have been at it for quite a while. I have a bit of an activist streak. Look for undervalued situations based on absolute value or relative value. I read my SEC or Sedar reports. Specialty is small thrifts in the U.S. trading as discounts to tangible book with earnings and lots of tangible equity to assets...........ie.............mutual to stock conversions. I like hard asset plays right here for 25-30% of the portfolio. Oil and Gas. Uranium, Potash, Gold, Silver.
