I have been an Investor for over 25 years and bring a wealth of experience with me as I have been partly involved with taking 2 Companies Public on Canadian Stock Exchanges over the past few years. My experience in the Public Markets ranges from first hand experience as to what Investors are seeking when they want to Invest in a Public Company to actually working as a Consultant over the past 15 years in helping taking Companies Public. There really isn't much I have not seen happen in this arena or experienced. The Good, The Bad and The Ugly is the Best way to express what i have seen and experienced. I also with 2 other Partners managed 2 exploration mining Companies, with Noranda Exploration as our Joint Venture Partner for exactly 5 years. After this journey, I acted as a Consultant to some of the world's largest Mining Companies, especially from South Africa and Great Britain. I started the web site www.pennystockdd.com along with my partner Curt Depres. We do much of the writing, but have 3 other contract writers hired on a part time basis.I do everything from Writing articles, to Stock Picks on a daily basis. We really strive to educate Investors through our medium. I would like the opportunity to contribute to SeekingAlpha should the editors deem me worthy' Sincerely Don Croucher
Private Trader or "PT" (a pseudonym) is a contributor to Seeking Alpha who, at this time, values privacy as much as money therefore only Seeking Alpha editors have contact information for PT.
PT's first investment in the market was airline company "People's Express". Although the stock initially went up, ultimately the company was taken over by Frank Lorenzo (ie - Texas Air Corporation and Continental) and it's value plummeted. However, PT's interest in stocks grew. Even math seemed interesting when money was on the table. PT enjoys reading stock newsletters and Seeking Alpha in search of potential bargains.
PT enjoys trading, family, and friends (not always necessarily in that order!).
PT recommends readers review all author's past posts (including PT's) for their win / loss record. Also, especially when PT discusses stocks trading around $1, readers can check http://www.pumpsanddumps.com/ to see whether the stock is subject to any pump or dump scams. PT is not employed, paid, or in any way compensated by any of the stocks PT might discuss on SA except as an investor (and possibly as an SA contributor).
PT reminds everyone that these are not recommendations to buy, hold, or sell, and that your own due diligence is required.
