Background in corporate finance at multiple Fortune 200 companies including real-estate, media, and banking. Believe strongly in detailed analysis of company balance sheets and income statements, going into deeper detail than the average investor. Look to identify companies whose fundamental financials or outlook, differ significantly the the market value afforded to that company at a particular point in time. As a rule, beginning May 2013, I very rarely will hold any position in a stock that I cover on Seeking Alpha. This is done solely to protect the integrity of my research and opinion expressed in any article contributed to the site. In the rare case that I do hold a position in a stock I discuss, it will be clearly noted in the customary disclosure as well as the article itself.
