I am a private investor. This is not my day job. I have simply tried to learn from the giants in the investing field, to see what makes sense, and play cautiously. I'm interested in the US energy boom, and particularly oil technologies. I am looking closely at a few binary plays, which are not widely known about, where significant valuation increases over the next few years are likely. I live by the advice of Charlie Munger, who said: "It makes sense to load up on the very few good insights you have instead of pretending to know everything about everything at all times." I am pseudonymous on SA because I have an existing public profile in another field, and I do not want to confuse the two. My name is inspired by one of my favourite thinkers, Montesquieu. I will leave you with one of his fitting thoughts: "The history of commerce is that of the communication of people."
