Author of the critically acclaimed book, "Taking Charge With Value Investing (McGraw-Hill, 2013)" and the premium subscription service "Tipping The Scale" (as seen below). An analyst that ranks in the top 4% on both tipranks.com and Motley Fool CAPS for stock picking performance.
Tipping the Scale members gain access to the TTS Portfolio Tracker. Here, members see what I am buying and selling the minute it happens, along with what I have owned, bought, and sold historically. These are just a few of the features on the TTS Portfolio Tracker.
Tipping The Scale is an equity research platform that uses a numeric scale instead of the traditional "Buy, Hold, Sell" to identify the best investment opportunities in the market. Stock coverage is determined by market catalyst, and every company goes through a vigorous test in 10 different categories. The higher the total score, the bigger the upside. In addition, Tipping the Scale also provides a number of portfolio strategies to hedge the volatility of the market and protect from downside.

I have been trading and investing in stocks, stock options, and ETFs for over 10 years. I look for opportunities in companies that recently came public, as well as companies with compelling products or momentum in the market. Combining both fundamental and technical analysis with sound risk management tactics contribute to my investing style.
I am an active option and etf trader. I do have a real day job which pays me decently, but I enjoy playing the markets.
I normally trade options which are 3 to 6 months in maturities and use strategies such as synthetic long and synthetic shorts.
