Displaying a principled approach to his work, strong values and a focus on transparency, Paul soon experienced renown and respect from members of the color diamond and precious metals communities. A businessman for 40 years, Paul has shared his expertise, standards of excellence and passion for the industry with his children, Jeremy Wiseman and Nicole Snitman, who uphold their father’s strong ethics. . Under the tutelage of Paul, Guildhall Diamonds has been accepted into the Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA), and invited to the distinguished Argyle Tender.
I have a private small company with a few different revenue streams. I survive off of one particular stream and invest the other smaller streams into the market.
I consider myself a longterm value investor and am not risk averse. I have three seperate portfolios each holding one third of my capital.
My goal was to create a multiframed method of analysis that might allow the average retail investor to pick investments that have a high probability of doubling or tripling. I am willing to cut against the grain and take contrarian deep value bets based on price value inefficiencies. I would like to compound at 30% average yearly gains in an all of my accounts. I have had 2 years of compounding my money at over 300% in these accounts so I would be ahead of my current benchmarks. As of end of 2013.
However, I do not expect to be able to repeat my results over the long term by trading. In fact I expect to sometimes underperform the market as many of my ideas might take time to come to fruition. I will often use arbitrage opportunities or short term swings for smaller gains. I am working on fine tuning my methodology but I believe it is unique and should produce the minimum average of 30%. I am currently ahead in this race and can withstand a correction as my portfolio grows quickly. I am also willing to get defensive if need be to protect capital or even go 50%cash. I run this as a very concentrated portfolio.
One third of my capital goes in a DRIP that I average in monthly to seven companies. I change these companies yearly based on valuation and position size. I grow positions here over time and never want to hold more than 30 companies in this account.
One third goes into long term companies that I see huge growth potential.
One third is in speculative bio-tech, tech and just about anything else where I can understand the financial statement sheets on and has great possible momentum and catalysts.
I often find myself going against the current trends in the market as I see opportunity in others fear. That said I seem to invest in around 15 stocks at a time and try to focus investments into the company at the best value. I hope to earn a healthy return over the next ten years to twenty years.
I am also interested in working in the industry as a career change and am always open to advice. Anyone out there want a 36 year old intern with advanced degrees in other areas?
My main skills are finding deep value opportunities and lucrative swing trade opportunities. I seem to have found a lot of bottom entries even in today's markets. I am willing to learn, enjoy games/game theory, love to read and solve problems.
I am working on starting a limited partnership for 2015 or 2016 so that I can share my gifts with family and friends.

Many thanks to Seeking Alpha for this forum and to all my fellow traders and investors who frequent it.
I'm a 33 y/o aircraft mechanic in the military. I enjoy long walks on the beach, putting money in my poor banks pockets, foreign films never and a delicious cold Bud Light! In all seriousness, I'm completely new at this and I basically know how to buy and sell. It has been kind of fun learning even though I have had some expensive lessons.
