30 years experience investing. 90% of assets in real estate. Invested in "green" stocks such as solar and wind - with EnerTuition's profitable service. Started hedging with gold miners in 2017 and found them much more than a hedge - quite profitable with Somabull's service.
Netherlands based non-professional stocktrader with a private portfolio; good at stockpicking; not good at options. I prefer companies with a good ROI, ROE, PEG-ratio, good and inspiring management, a durable competative advantage. BUY AND ACCUMULATE (B&A) is my approach. I'm in the market for the company's profit, not the stockprice in the first place.
Author of Beyond the Hype, a leading and comprehensive emerging technology stock analysis and discussion service on Seeking Alpha Marketplace. Currently, we focus on identifying and investing in emerging technologies in the renewable energy, storage, EV, and autonomous vehicle industries. Beyond the Hype is different because it is dedicated to cutting through management and Wall Street commentary and providing fresh and insightful perspectives from a mid-market M&A consultant specializing in the technology and energy industries who's also been an individual Investor for over 25 years. Growth oriented investments primarily in market leaders and technology leaders. Investment philosophy is long term buy and hold with average holding time of several years. I have a keen sense of cutting through management and Investment banker commentary and seeing true value of companies. A lot of my views tend to be controversial for that reason but at the same time remarkably accurate. To get a feel for my writing, readers can puruse a few of my recent against the grain calls:- with extremely high success rates. http://seekingalpha.com/article/3547796-is-it-time-to-buy-sunedison-yet http://seekingalpha.com/article/3545056-8point3-energy-not-agreeing-with-management-commentary http://seekingalpha.com/article/3536926-public-utility-commission-decisions-will-determine-the-future-of-investor-owned-utilities http://seekingalpha.com/article/3507896-sunrun-growing-like-a-weed-and-likely-as-valuable http://seekingalpha.com/article/3501386-solarcitys-gigafab-is-increasingly-looking-like-a-white-elephant http://seekingalpha.com/article/3482766-terraform-power-is-it-time-to-buy-this-yieldco http://seekingalpha.com/article/3474206-hanwha-q-cells-continues-to-underperform http://seekingalpha.com/article/3473136-implications-of-the-interim-net-metering-ruling-in-nevada http://seekingalpha.com/article/3464626-is-there-any-validity-to-solarcitys-claims-that-its-loans-are-not-subprime http://seekingalpha.com/article/3460056-is-the-arbitrage-value-on-vivint-solar-appropriate http://seekingalpha.com/article/3457486-jinkosolar-ignore-the-market-and-buy-the-stock http://seekingalpha.com/article/3451596-canadian-solar-may-suffer-from-yieldco-market-malady http://seekingalpha.com/article/3440646-one-more-chink-in-residential-solar-lease-ppa-business-model http://seekingalpha.com/article/3436436-what-does-bursting-of-the-solar-asset-bubble-have-to-do-with-solarcity http://seekingalpha.com/article/3394615-trading-the-solar-earnings-season http://seekingalpha.com/article/3401145-sunrun-ipo-run-for-the-hills http://seekingalpha.com/article/3357975-insanity-thy-name-is-terraform-global http://seekingalpha.com/article/3208776-arbitrage-play-with-solar-industry-etfs http://seekingalpha.com/research/9110881-casual-analyst/3987216-warning-lights-flashing-brightly-at-rec-silicon-asa http://seekingalpha.com/research/9110881-casual-analyst/3968286-enphase-energy-headed-for-lower-growth-trajectory http://seekingalpha.com/article/3133006-when-will-solarcity-stop-misrepresenting-its-financials
Personal Investor following most sectors but with focus on tech and further focus on communication chip companies and Internet infrastructure....although my watch list has many companies from many sectors.
I have a Mech Eng honors degree with 35 years as a petroleum engineer/onsite operations manager/finance, forecasting and metrics manager. I was also section chairperson for Society of Petroleum Engineers so have a good feel for the oil production and transport industry. 26 of those years were with Shell (mostly TEOR in CA) and the last 9 years overseas (ME) with Oxy.
I saved and invested well so retired in 2014 at age 58 and invest mainly as a hobby as I have my retirement secured.
I have written 2 dutch books on value investing (search bol.com for "ruerd heeg"). As a mathematician (Ph.D.) I use quantitative strategies with statistically extremely high returns: net-nets and companies with low Enterprise Value/Earnings before Tax & Interest (EV/EBIT). When ranking on several metrics the 30-50 best stocks have 20-30% average annual returns. Since such stocks are rare I invest globally.
