I began investing at an early age and found myself intrigued by the financial markets. As I grew older, I became fascinated with the idea of stock picking as a way to grow my assets. When I began, I believed that "market perform" was good enough for my portfolio, but now I believe in the concept of "outperform". I search for undervalued, under researched companies that live in the small to mid cap realm that possess the potential to become large cap companies with multi-billion dollar valuations. Though I am still young, and admittedly have a lot yet to learn, I believe the returns generated through my recommendations will speak for themselves over the course of my tenure with the Seeking Alpha team.

Dr. Kris has two degrees from MIT because one just wasn't enough. Her life goal was to figure out the universe and having done that (at least to her satisfaction), she decided to tackle something even more difficult—the stock market.
Applying the scientific method along with an insatiably curious mind, she began trading stocks, futures, and options in order to find the holy grail to market success. She's discovered to her immense satisfaction that not only is there one way to succeed but many. Combining her love of cooking with the stock market, she's devised recipes for investment success designed to please the palate of most investors. Dr. Kris currently manages a private equity long/short portfolio and writes of her current research projects that appear on her website, StockMarketCookBook.com.
Her most exciting project is applying market timing models to Modern Portfolio Theory to not only give greater returns but at substantially lower levels of risk. (See PortfolioPreserver.com for further information.)
I have been an active investor for almost 20 years. My main focus is on high-yield stocks, particularly MLPs, and high-growth oil companies in the Eagle Ford shale. I have a portion of my portfolio allocated to short-term trading, with a focus on over-reactions to company news and directional plays on VIX-based ETFs. I am happy to answer just about any question sent my way, especially from those new to the stock market.
Now at 89 i'm a former poster on SA..
