I started following the stock market few years ago.
After a couple of wrong bets and bad advises, I have decided to take charge of my money! Do some studies on the matter and try to understand better the stock market mouvements, in order to maxime my utility in each investments.
I'm an amateur, and doing this on my spare times only.
Retail Investor, Shareholder Advocate and Editor of Stocks DD blog. You are cautioned to read the disclaimer in Seeking Alpha before reading my articles. I am NOT a registered investment adviser. My articles are ONLY for informative purposes and should NOT be treated as investment advice.
My investment philosophy:
1. Invest in Strong businesses (high barriers to entry) 2. Invest in Management with excellent track record for shareholder value creation 3. Invest at undervalued prices
Invest in special situations (bankruptcy or other restructuring) or Drug development firms, where there is with an asymmetric reward/risk...where I have strong conviction on a reward event.
I am also interested in the shareholders topics in publicly listed companies:
1. Shareholder rights 2. Giving shareholders a voice incl shareholder participation in value creation 3. Improving board and management's accountability to shareholders
Be a shareholder advocate and work towards insuring boards and management "do the right thing for shareholders", maximizing and protecting shareholder's value.

36 years old. Native German. I work as an equity analyst at a boutique Investment Bank in Europe. I started investing privately in 2001 - just to get burned badly. Got back to investing my private wealth in 2013 with great success so far. I prefer momentum and value strategies. Typically looking for out-of-favour stocks with quality business models. Use fundamental analysis (competitive strategy, defensibility, structural growth potential, valuation, free cash generation) combined with technical analysis for entry/exit points. I am willing to hold high conviction ideas for 1-2 years but will trade in and out of positions depending on news flow and technical indicators (oversold, overbought). I am currently heavily invested into oil and commodities (zinc, copper).
I am a stock trader. I buy and sell sometimes in a day . Most of the time I hold stocks for a much longer term .
I lost $600,000.00 + before I learned to read stock charts . Learn how to read technicals and apply them . What I guess I am trying to say is I learned my skills the old fashion way . I earned them by profit and loss . I love the game . Can get better odds than Black Jack .
My favorite stocks are Bio Tech . I love them because you either make or loose money in a hurry . After studying the stocks you can figure which way the odds are pointing . I try not to fall in love with any of the Bios . There are some I have passed on that made it big . Plus Vice Versa .
I can take a hit and roll with the punches . Took me a while to learn you buy low and sell high . I have that figured out now .
I love reading the comments . After reading a Seeking Alpha article . This gives me a good idea as to whether the article writer is right or wrong . Anybody can say a stock is going to triple . Only a few are right . I plan to be around for a while . So get use to me . If you don't agree with my comments . Tell me . I will listen . Probably not change my mine but I will listen .
