I am an individual investor with technological and financial background (aerospace, AI, self-driving cars and finance). I work for a leading technological company and manage my own capital.
My greatest influences: Warren Buffett and Philip Fisher. I invest for the long term in superior businesses managed by outstanding individuals and selling at a reasonable price. Think big, think long term and buy the business, not the stock.
As of January 2017, I am long TSLA, NVDA, AAPL, SEDG, PANW, PYPL, GILD, AL and ATVI.
Past portfolio returns (US stocks, dividend payments included):

Having been both a reader and a contributor on SA, I had a realization. Widely-known investment ideas are not very useful. This is because by the time general public knows about an opportunity, the inefficiency that caused it is usually gone. Fund managers who share their ideas, often do it after a rise in price, as they are trimming or selling their positions. And now, good ideas are often hidden behind a paywall.
Despite a plethora of well-written investment articles on SA, I rarely find a true investment gem here. My best ideas have mostly been my own. I suspect this is true for many of us.
Therefore, I began to work on a project to help me generate my own, original investment ideas. Reading is key to investing success, and reading about what works in investing should be even better. Having just started, I decided to share the project with SA readers. To check out the very early efforts, please go to www.readvest.com.
If you have any ideas or suggestions, please let me know and I will implement them.

I am an individual investor who cares a great deal about realistically analyzing companies. I generally disagree with the idea that the market is quick to 'price in' events correctly. If the market does react to events, I believe it tends to overreact, creating buying or selling opportunities. This philosophy tends to leave me slightly out of touch with the market, since it ebbs and flows to highs and lows that I find unjustifiable. I enjoy criticism, because it makes me a stronger investor with a clearer view of my goals in investing.
