I’M NOT A FINANCIAL ADVISOR & ONLY GIVE MY OPINIONS. SEEK EXPERT ADVICE ELSEWHERE. ;) Investment Philosophy: Understand why you are getting in and cut your loss immediately if PPS goes down while behaving differently than you expected. Don't ride it down! I never go all in on any one stock and take the basis off the table when possible. Another thought is to never ride through a binary event such as a trial ending without a hedge of some kind. I never put in more than I can afford to lose if the trade goes wrong. My positions, long or short can change dramatically as new information comes to my attention. And, don't follow me into a penny stock without realizing they are HIGHLY risky and you can lose ALL of your investment. All stocks are risky, especially, biotech.
Education is an undergraduate degree in Business Administration and Management. Masters' in Organizational Management.
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. ;)
For the past 30 years, I have been involved in startups, as a founder, and active investor. My first company was purchased by Johnson & Johnson, which set the foundation for future investments.
My level of trading escalated after graduating from college, primarily as a result of my relationship with the founder of the Silicon Valley venture capital firm, Institutional Venture Partners, (Netflix, Twitter, Oracle). By focusing on VC backed companies, I soon learned the advantage of investing in promising companies before they became household names. My interest in startups has never waned, and has become my primary focus today.
