A life-long student of value investing; having successfully outperformed S&P 500 since 1980. Weathered the inevitable panic and fear found in necessary corrections and have learned to gracefully look silly for extended periods of time while pointing out the follies of stock market and real estate bubbles. Some of my best life long stock investments came when others could not sell fast enough in a panic. Although I am constantly researching companies, I'm perfectly happy buying stock just a few days a year when the markets are collapsing and the values are just right. Graduate of Columbia University with degrees in Economics and Political Science.
