Finance is my passion. I am an independent equity research professional, with particular interest in the technology and telecom sectors, and a slight hobby of quantitative analyses. I am excited to announce that I am well on my way to launching an independent sell-side research platform in late 2012, and encourage you to follow me on Seeking Alpha to keep abreast of future developments. As for education, I have an MBA from UNC's Kenan-Flagler Business School (dual concentrated in Investment Management and Corporate Finance) and am a CFA Level II Candidate.
The stock market is an incredibly interesting and dynamic puzzle that continues to draw me in like a game of chess where every few moves your opponent changes and parts of the board are obscured.
The investment models I design are typically used by family offices, hedge funds, brokerages and single investors. If you are interested in developing a certain model and want to throw a few ideas around, you are most welcome to contact me without feeling pressure or obligation.
My other passion is volunteering with the deaf. My wife and I moved to Malawi Africa from 2014 to 2016 where we learned Malawi Sign Language.

I'm the Director of Research at Wonder. Come check it out (askwonder.com)
Previously, I worked for Seeking Alpha from 2008-2015. During that time, I was involved in building out the PRO and Marketplace subscription platforms, and also spent time writing 'Wall Street Breakfast' and writing for the Breaking News team.
Before joining Seeking Alpha, I co-founded a (short-lived) start-up for crowd-sourced angel investing and worked in the private banking division of a boutique bank. I've got an M.Sc. in applied economics from Georgia Southern University, and a B.A. in economics from Brandeis University.
My husband and I live in Israel with our two children.
Retired investor, ex-banker, car collector, grandfather to two, plus one on the way. I enjoy research and investing. I'm active with options, option spreads, etc, although in limited quanities, as most of my investment funds are fairly conserative, with only occassional adjustments as deemed necessary.
My wife and I bowl about 5 times a week, a sport we just started after retirement a couple of years ago. Includes 3 weekly leagues and bowling with the kids and grandkids. 198 average in league, not bad for an old guy.

In 2005, Michal interned with Manning Selvage & Lee, one of the world's leading public relations firms.

Slawny graduated cum laude with a B.A. in journalism, focusing on public relations, and a B.A. in Romance Languages from the University of Georgia.
