"The person that turns over the most rocks wins the game" - Peter Lynch
I like to turn over a lot of rocks with my research to find the truly exceptional companies.
My Marketplace Service, Harry's High-Quality Club, is where I highlight my best findings in detail.
I'm also currently a CFA candidate. I passed the level 1 exam in June 2015.
Old school investor it seems. I started investing at 25 and now can live off the dividends if I choose to at 33.
I only buy companies that produce high returns on capital that I don't have to babysit. My largest positions include:
PEP, KO, JNJ, NKE, BF.B, MKC, PG, XOM, RDS'B, DPS, DEO, MO ,PM, UTX, MMM, UL, BRK, AAPL, WFC, AXP, NVO, PAYX, DIS, MSFT, SJM, HSY, SBUX, NVS, VFC, MDT, TIF, NSRGY, GIS & CL.
Waiting for some attractive values on:
SWK, CHD, PDRDY, ITW
I don't believe in checking stock prices everyday. I'll read the annual reports once a year to make sure profits are still increasing and management is keeping their hands out of the cookie jar. I like to keep it completely passive which I think is the sole point of investing.

Taught as a kid to read the stock quotes in the newspaper (remember having to wait until the next day to get the quotes?) by my dad. Now, a dividend growth investor that uses a garden analogy for my dividend portfolio. Love reinvesting dividends and premiums from covered calls on my positions.
I'm just a long term investor who is eager to read and learn,
My favourite investors, those who inspire me, are Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, Peter Lynch, Donald Yacktman, James Montier,Jeremy Grantham, Pat Dorsey, Mike Burry and more to come.
Trading With Waves pioneered the Decision Support Engine which has been featured in multiple publications and media outlets such as CNBC. The Decision Support Engine combines multiple insights into a company ranging from the businesses strategy, to who is investing, to timing of those investments. With these insights the DSE provides a risk adjusted view of both where the company is heading and where the price is heading. Sometimes the company and pricing head in the same direction and some times they do not. Over at Trading With Waves, we're continually improve the DSE as we've done for the last ten years. We continue use it ourselves as well as teach people how to use it.

My "early-retirement / emergency fund" portfolio (excludes pension, 401k, roth ira):
John Hancock Tax-Advantaged Dividend Income CEF (HTD) ($387,055.52 principal)
Vanguard Managed Payout Fund (VPGDX) ($25,000 principal)
total principal = $412,064.32
yield on cost = 6.78%
monthly investment income = HTD + VPGDX = $2,250.228 + $77.886 = $2,328.114
yearly investment income = $27,937.368
My early retirement goal is $3,000 per month income i.e. $36,000 per year.

Thoroughly disgusted with the current chaotic economic climate, as well as the overwhelmingly self-serving and irresponsible tax-and-spend whackaloons of every political stripe with whom we are presently afflicted.

I am Seeking Alpha's CEO and Editor-in-Chief. My love for the stock markets goes back to when I was a kid. Who else remembers combing through the stock quotes at the back of the business section of your local paper?
I joined Seeking Alpha in 2006 and launched Wall Street Breakfast and Market Currents, our top-of-class short-form breaking news for investors. In 2010 I became editor-in-chief and in 2015 I became CEO.
I live in Jerusalem with my wife and a bunch of exceptional kids. Most days, you'll find me making the commute from Jerusalem to Raanana. Occasionally I get to work from my home-office, from where I keep an eye on the beautiful Judean Hills.

Efsinvestment.com website offers simple do-it-yourself type of investment ideas. You can download excel files that can easily calculate the Fair Value of a stock, along with O-Metrix score and Margin of Safety.
Investment philosophy is to first determine the maximum loss, and invest accordingly. Like many value investors, we prefer to invest in stocks with the highest dividend yields, and highest EPS growth potentials. Telecommunication and energy stocks in emerging markets are among the favorites.
Seeking Alpha offers a great opportunity to become a part of a strong finance network. Based on extensive quantitative analysis, in any market, going short is risky. Statistical analysis shows that technical indicators work only if they are strong enough to convince the majority of the investors. Do not buy a stock at the top, do not sell a stock at the dip.
I am projecting that the US govt is near insolvent and that we will be facing a new Bretton Woods currency agreement bringing gold back into the monetary system in combination with a sudden fiat currency devaluation (across the board-most currencies) against gold over a long weekend or an outright sovereign debt panic by 2020-2025. The least expected outcome double digit inflation is very likely sometime in the future. The Fed PRO-POVERTY policies are going to crush the poor, fixed pensioners and lower middle class since disposable income growth is limited. Beware middle class and retirees your purchasing power will drop dramatically when everyday necessities absorb a larger % of your income. To spread the word to the brainwashed American drones that this economy is one big illusion ponzi scheme and you are infact broke. Issuing more debt to solve a debt problem is crazy. I am accepting nominations for those that played a major positive and major negative impact on our economy.
