What to expect from my articles: I write mainly about my basic set of economic indicators that give a solid outlook about the economy. I then discuss trades that fit to the mid/long term outlook.

Over 30 years of investing in individual stocks. Extensive business experience with small to mid-size companies, including as CEO. Many hundreds of blog posts on financial and economic matters since 2008. Focus on value with catalysts for upside price action. Background as a physician and pharmaceutical inventor and entrepreneur, however focus now is global and involves almost all economic categories.
My focus is on companies that fly under the radar but offer opportunities for investment success because these companies have built in catalysts, a management team that has a clear business plan and fundamentals in place for the catalysts to bear fruit.
My investments include well known stocks, but I write mostly about small cap or under followed stocks. I don't think that a portfolio should be built on solely the type of stock that I write about but I offer ideas for the part of a portfolio dedicated to catalytic investment.
I look for large hedge fund interest in relatively unknown companies and then research the underlying reason for this investment. Most often, the reason is a growth in market share and there is an underlying catalyst.
I spend most of my time reading through annual reports looking for a small-cap stock to feature in my monthly edition of "The Conservative Investor Digest." That is where you can find my best work, and that is where I focus my research. You can become a subscriber here: https://gumroad.com/l/HmqJx
