Edward Roche is the President of Freedom Mountain Investments (http://www.freedommount.com/), an investment firm founded in 2006, located in Paoli, Pennsylvania. Freedom Mountain specializes in identifying hidden value in small and mid size companies before they are recognized by the market. The investment approach is based upon fundamental analysis and places a high emphasis on real and rising financials including sales and earnings. One special approach used to identify a catalyst for release of value is the “Venerable Owner” strategy. This strategy tracks all companies where an older owner owns 40% or more of a company. These situations often lead to sale of the company at a significant premium to market value when the owner seeks to retire. Edward Roche received a Ph. D. degree in Polymer Science and Engineering from the University of Massachusetts and earned an MBA in Finance from the Haub School of Business, St. Joseph’s University, Philadelphia PA. He recently completed a career at the McNeil division of Johnson & Johnson that included high level positions in Business Development and R&D. He is the inventor on 15 US patents in the area of drug delivery and has authored ten scientific publications.

A passionate advocate for families and working Americans, Jennifer Openshaw is President of stock education site WeSeed, author of the hit new book The Millionaire Zone, and is seen regularly on America's most-watched shows -- from Dr. Phil, Oprah and Good Morning America to CNN and CNBC. As a proven entrepreneur and powerful voice for "the little guy," Jennifer knows that ordinary people often have limited resources, but unlimited aspirations. Her life's mission is to share her secrets of how successful people get ahead, and empower middle-income Americans to reach their financial dreams as well.
Jennifer has lived her own "rags to riches" story, getting her first job as a maid in a motel when she was 14 years old to help support the family. Since then, she’s gone on to start several successful ventures and was named a “Mover and Shaker” in Silicon Valley by the San Jose Mercury News. Through her work as CEO of Family Financial Network, many TV appearances, and “Winning Advice” segments on nationwide radio, Jennifer has entertained, inspired and empowered millions of Americans. Jennifer is also President and Co-Founder of WeSeed, designed to help real, everyday people turn their passions and professions into better investing.
Jennifer got her start in financial services working as Press Secretary for California’s State Treasurer. She later served as Vice President at Bank of America and head of marketing for Wilshire Associates, one of the nation’s largest investment consulting firms. At Wilshire, Jennifer launched the Wilshire 5000 Index Mutual Fund and converted the Index into a real-time stock index to be used by consumers and the media, including CNBC. She has also served as Senior Vice President of Corporate Marketing at Bank One, now JP Morgan Chase.
In 1999, Jennifer founded Women’s Financial Network, a financial services company created for women. Her work as CEO and Chairman won her recognition as a “Mover & Shaker” in Silicon Valley by the San Jose Mercury News and one of the Internet’s 25 Rising Star by Internet World. Her work has been featured in numerous publications including the New York Times, USA Today, Business Week, the Chicago Tribune, Women’s Day, Redbook, and Kiplinger’s. She is host of ABC Radio’s “Winning Advice”, AOL’s Family Financial Editor, and a frequent guest on such shows as Today, the Early Show, Good Morning America, CNN, Fox and CNBC.
Jennifer’s passion for helping consumers stems from her own life story. Jennifer’s mother found herself divorced at age 28, with three young kids and no formal education. To make ends meet, her mother worked two full-time jobs as a waitress. While her mother worked days and nights, eight-year-old Jennifer raised her two younger brothers and, at age 14, took on her first ‘real’ job as a maid in a motel.
WeSeed is designed to help the 100 million+ Americans who do not own stock understand the stock market by starting with the things they already know and love, whether it’s pets, fashion or parenting.
A Rotary Scholar, Jennifer holds an MBA and BA from UCLA and serves on the Advisory Board of Wyndham Hotels. She was appointed by the Governor of California to the prestigious Commission on California State Government Organization & Economy and is also a member of the Young Entrepreneurs Organization (YEO).

Land Commodities was established on the premise that the world is in the early stages of a secular bull market in agricultural commodities. The agricultural investment environment will be characterised by fundamentally constrained supply set against a backdrop of step changes in demand from a rising population and the changing diets of an expanding emerging market middle class. Layered on top of this will be a completely new and potentially enormous source of demand from energy markets as second and third generation biofuels and new biomass technologies reach maturity and become commercialised (a process which has barely yet begun).
Add to this the fact that a difficult investing climate is driving increasing numbers of investors to look at the asset class for the first time, and it’s reasonable to expect that over the coming decades the demand for (and return from) agricultural assets is likely to exceed any other period in history.
I am a self-taught investor. I look for stocks offering growth at a reasonable price and stocks that are undervalued.

I call myself the Random Investor because I don't intend to limit myself in any way. I choose stocks to review the way I choose books to read (and I read A LOT) - whatever catches my eye. Might be an interesting piece of news, might be a product I like, might be I like the competition, could be something Cramer said. (I like him on Squawk on the Street, not so much on Mad Money.)
Full disclosure: I have no positions in any individual stocks and do not intend to initiate any in the next six months.
