I am a technology entrepreneur for the past 20 years and an investor for the past 25 years. My investing is used for both personal and supervisorial reasons at this time. My interests involve anything technology and as a result nearly 60% of my investments focus on technology companies. As a result of current trends in technology, I have a special interest in companies that are leaders in the pocket communication/computing/imaging space, as I believe that most computing and photography in the future will be done using phone devices with superior computing and imaging devices integrated within one device. I also have an interest in companies that can properly leverage the hybrid computing space, where full power portable computing devices are married with touchscreen tablet devices in screen sizes larger than a phone device. I also like to allocate a certain percentage of speculative funds towards companies I feel are in the process of a reorganization and have seen a dramatic stock price drop in past years and as a result, I see great future upside in such a company. The remainder of my portfolio goes to stocks I feel are just great companies on a good path with a great balance sheet and often a good dividend. The majority of my SA stock blogs will be centered towards reorg companies given the amount of communication they garner here.
PhD in Computational Physics. Developing new models for stock trading (focusing on long SVXY). Predicting future accurately enough for trading purposes is surprisingly difficult... :)
Contrarian investment philosophy. I am in particular interested in undervalued technology stocks with multiple x upside potential and limited downside risk.
I am currently long $MSFT, $LNVGY, $INTC, $CRAY, $VRNG, $OCAT, $F, $TLT, $ALU and $NOK. $NOK (and now $ALU) are still the largest position in my portfolio, although I sold 70% of my $NOK position since the Devices and Services deal with Microsoft was announced. $NOK/ALU, and $TLT are currently my largest individual stock/ETF positions.
I also swing trade inverse volatility (long $SVXY) depending on market trends. I do not touch $VIX or other direct volatility products under any circumstances.
