Michael Alexander is an independent investor and blogger concentrating on microcap and nanocap companies. He focuses on finding tiny companies who have a near or mid-term catalyst that is likely to move shares higher. He relies on historical trends in financials, information in public filings, economic data, industry events and the like to find opportunities others may have missed. Most opportunities are trading opportunities based on fundamental mispricings some of which turn into longer term fundamental investments. He posts semi-regularly on his blog at GileadsGold.com (http://www.gileadsgold.com/) and can be found on various financial sites posting under the handle Gilead23.
