Long/Short equity, value investor, small/micro cap I am a stock enthusiast. I stumbled upon a book about value investing when I was 18 and I have been reading every book that I can get my hands on in investing since. I believe that the only way to succeed in the market is to have a long term horizon and a contrarian view. I am very risk averse and i tend not to invest in something unless i am confident that the upside outweighs the downside significantly. I mainly invest in restructuring companies (turnarounds) and companies with solid expansion plans (mono / duopolies or near term pipeline expansions) while paying little for growth. I still have a lot to learn and hope to be a great investor one day.
