I have been investing in stocks since the age of 12, starting out with profits from carrying newspapers and other small jobs. Today, I focus on hunting down quality companies for bargain prices, searching for situations where undue pessimism, fear, or shortsightedness by investors has led to a significant difference between a company's market value and their intrinsic value. I am currently a finance and accounting student at Truman State University.

Self-taught investor based in NYC. I completed my undergraduate studies at Stanford University and have lived in Japan, China as well as the United States. I've worked as a reporter, freelance writer, copyeditor, filmmaker, and educator. I believe that investing requires thoughtful analysis (qualitative as well as quantitative) and proper due diligence.
As an investor, I am focused on turn-around stories as well as undervalued growth companies. As a contributor, my goal is to provide thoughtful analysis of companies that lack sufficient coverage and are unloved by Wall Street.
I believe that understanding the limit of one's circle of competence is one of the most important principles of investing.

Dallas currently owns and operates as CEO an Austin-based enterprise consulting firm that specializes in private company lifecycle management, up to and including taking companies public, and in helping consult publicly traded companies ranging in market cap from $100 million to $500 million. He has a specialization in deal flow management and is often the referring and closing source of Joint Ventures and broader M&A. Dallas often works directly with management teams and Boards of microcap and stressed equity companies in which he or members of his professional network are heavily invested. This includes helping with overall strategy, helping with capital structure management, helping facilitate liquidity, helping facilitate Joint Ventures and broader M&A, and helping restructure the business segments if necessary. Recently Dallas has been interviewed by The Pittsburgh Business Times, The Banker, Columbus Business First, Houston Business Journal, The Deal, Energy Intelligence, and his tweets have been used by CNBC to highlight hot button issues regarding Carl Icahn, Bill Ackman, Nelson Peltz’s takeover attempts at DuPont, etc. Dallas has also been quoted and sourced to by StreetSweeper.org, Marcellus.com, MarcellusDrilling.com, Bakken.com, OilOnline.com, and other physical and online publications. "One place of great inefficiency is in the stressed equity markets – or the markets in which a company appears as bankruptcy or a breakup is inevitable. As equities become stressed they often sell down to absurd levels of value that present, should there be value to be unlocked, opportunities for “venture level” returns. These often range in the 3X-10X range. With my unique ability to actually improve business outcomes by working directly with a company and management/Board I’m in a position, should I view the underlying business as salvageable, to directly improve the long-term viability of the company. I am NOT simply an investor in these names but an acting consultant. This allows me to “overlay my network” and to move the company away from a stressed or defaulting outcome and into an outcome probability that allows the equity price to move substantially higher. Identifying these opportunities has generated shareholders and investors thousands of percentage points in aggregate and is something I’m often recognized by paying subscribers for."

Starting in late August or early September, I will run a Marketplace subscription service called “Outsourced Analyst” targeted at small-mid-sized funds, family offices, or HNWs who want the workflow of an analyst for a hundredth of the price.

Bonus material is thought pieces - I place a lot of emphasis on learning and getting better - so if/when I make mistakes, I'll write up postmortems with what I learned, and maybe they'll help you as well... Membership will be limited to the first 250 subscribers.

After you enter a trade, you are on your own to enter, exit, or take no action on the trade. I am not liable for actions you take after reading something that I wrote.
