I have always been engaged in the finance world. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce and Administration and a Chartered Accountancy from New Zealand, I dived into the esoteric and fast-paced world of foreign exchange trading. That successful work experience took me to Malaysia, Singapore and New York.
Armed with a freshly minted MBA, I had a front row seat at the theater of the 2008 financial crisis. I remembered thinking that Alan Greenspan was so out of touch with reality when he said that the options ARMS mortgages are good things: they enabled lower income people to own their own homes. To me, these ARMs, in the lower income group, were time bombs, when they could not afford to pay the higher mortgage payments when the interest rates reset. Unfortunately many people were blind-sighted by this and together with CDS (credit default swaps) and Greed, we had the 2008 financial meltdown.
Since then, I have been thoroughly enjoying my multi roles of equity trading, investment research and managing portfolios for Garrison Bradford & Associates, a well established RIA. We have been successfully managing wealth for high net worth individuals for over 40 years. Our investment philosophy is simple: invest in companies with a secular growth story.
Since I enjoy writing, I sometimes share my investing ideas with Seeking Alpha. Ah! I remembered my very first article written on February 23, 2016. Oil Poised for $60. You may recall that oil was trading around $30 at that time. I received many "hate mail" which effectively say, "You are an Idiot". Haha, I admit I got the time wrong ---but oil is trading above $60 now. I bring up this article as an example of how I think - I look at the big picture as well as the company fundamentals. Thank you for reading. Have a great day!
בשנת 2005 ניסיתי אופניים חשמליות במהלך טיול לסין. הם נראו כבדים, אטיים. עם זאת, היתה השפעה טרנספורמטיבית על אורח החיים שלהם.
זה לא היה עד 2008 כי החלטתי להמיר אופניים לחשמליים באמצעות ערכת בסיסית. ברגע שלקחתי סיבוב, היה ברור כי האופניים החשמליים היה דרך מצוינת לעקוף. עם זאת, היו חסרונות רבים, כגון טווח, קיבולת אחסון, עלות, מיקום הסוללה, ואת ההתקנה מסובך שם כמה.
צריך להסתכל על ההיסטוריה של האופניים בכדי להבין איך הכל התחיל
מאז אני משקיע בתחום התחבורה
