“The highest rates of return I’ve ever achieved were in the 1950’s. I killed the Dow. You ought to see the numbers. But I was investing peanuts then. It’s a huge structural advantage not to have a lot of money. I think I could make you 50% a year on $1 million. No, I know I could. I guarantee that.” – Warren Buffett, 1999

I look for companies with a margin of safety to their value, and I dislike downside risk. I subscribe to the first rule of investing: "Do not lose money."
I believe small and microcap stocks are the best place to look for value in the markets, as most people overlook these companies, making them more likely to be mis-priced. To exploit these opportunities, I have a subscription service with multiple microcap calls every month.

I'm an Army veteran and former energy dividend writer for The Motley Fool. My goal is to help all people learn how to harness the awesome power of dividend growth investing to achieve their financial dreams, and enrich their lives. With 22 years of investing experience, I've learned what works and more importantly, what doesn't, when it comes to building long-term wealth and income streams. I'm currently on an epic quest to build a broadly diversified, high-quality, high-yield dividend growth portfolio that:
1. Pays 5% to 6% yield
2. Offers 6% to 7% annual dividend growth
3. Pays dividends AT LEAST on a weekly, but preferably, daily basis

I manage a successful Merger Arbitrage (Risk Arbitrage) investment fund. This advanced turn-key arbitrage strategy focusses on the following key elements
i) Evaluation of relative risk/return characteristics
ii) Time frame analysis
iii) Entry/exit points
This focus has resulted in 4 variants of the traditional merger arbitrage strategy with their own unique characteristics. In concert, these strategies produce an attractive source of alternative beta for less risk than the traditional version. The key areas listed above have been intensely researched and build extensively upon existing academic literature resulting in a series of proprietary algorithms. The primary area of operation is (but not restricted to) the US and encompasses all deal types.
I also design, continuously develop and execute various other quantitative strategies. These strategies primarily involve the use of (but not limited to) equities and equity options which are synchronised to the risk appetites of individual clients. Strategies are coded in R and Visual Studio, although various arbitrage and special situation plays require additional manual oversight to optimise execution and performance.
