I am a former sell-side analyst -- UBS 1996-2002, Needham 2002-2006 and ThinkEquity 2006-2008. These days I review automobiles and other technology products, as well as analyze the automotive and technology industries, and coming up with long/short ideas. I also continue to write (less frequently) on macroeconomics and politics.
I invest by listening to consumer demands for many products, looking to see where early adopters are trending towards, along with capitalizing on people’s own foolish buying habits when buying stocks.
I have BS and MS in Chemical Engineering and have a number of publications that range in subjects from environmental sustainability, chemical reactions, to chaos theory.
I am the husband of one wife, and I have one college aged son who still sees me as a mentor. I am a world citizen; a fighter of poverty through clothing the naked, feeding the hungry, and visiting the sick, orphan and stranger.
I am long several stocks but starting to transition towards all income growth dividend stocks, plus a smidgeon of S&P 500 Index funds. I am heavily invested in the Apple Ecosystem and a high-end user since Powerbook 100, LOL, although I was a late iPhone adopter, I've owned Palm, Nokia, Sony/E.
I have extensive international experience and am very multicultural in my approach to everything. Also, I am an avid science fiction reader, and have a collection of all the Nebula and Hugo award winners, mostly first edition.
Healthcare provider who cares about a sustainable planet for our children. As an investor I am divesting from last century's energy sources. I like solar (photovoltaic and thermal), wind, and geothermal energy, public transportation and electric vehicles among other things to help transition to a sustainable planet.
