Moon Kil Woong is currently a VP at a SME. Previously he was a tech stock consultant, VP of Research at ING, and sell side Director at Crédit Agricole Indosuez. Moon Kil Woong has a Masters in Public Administration from SJSU.
Mechanical Engineer working in power industry construction. Investing for retirement and hunting birds in my spare time. Primarily a biotech investor as I believe this sector offers significant growth opportunities.
I have a private small company with a few different revenue streams. I survive off of one particular stream and invest the other smaller streams into the market.
I consider myself a longterm value investor and am not risk averse. I have three seperate portfolios each holding one third of my capital.
My goal was to create a multiframed method of analysis that might allow the average retail investor to pick investments that have a high probability of doubling or tripling. I am willing to cut against the grain and take contrarian deep value bets based on price value inefficiencies. I would like to compound at 30% average yearly gains in an all of my accounts. I have had 2 years of compounding my money at over 300% in these accounts so I would be ahead of my current benchmarks. As of end of 2013.
However, I do not expect to be able to repeat my results over the long term by trading. In fact I expect to sometimes underperform the market as many of my ideas might take time to come to fruition. I will often use arbitrage opportunities or short term swings for smaller gains. I am working on fine tuning my methodology but I believe it is unique and should produce the minimum average of 30%. I am currently ahead in this race and can withstand a correction as my portfolio grows quickly. I am also willing to get defensive if need be to protect capital or even go 50%cash. I run this as a very concentrated portfolio.
One third of my capital goes in a DRIP that I average in monthly to seven companies. I change these companies yearly based on valuation and position size. I grow positions here over time and never want to hold more than 30 companies in this account.
One third goes into long term companies that I see huge growth potential.
One third is in speculative bio-tech, tech and just about anything else where I can understand the financial statement sheets on and has great possible momentum and catalysts.
I often find myself going against the current trends in the market as I see opportunity in others fear. That said I seem to invest in around 15 stocks at a time and try to focus investments into the company at the best value. I hope to earn a healthy return over the next ten years to twenty years.
I am also interested in working in the industry as a career change and am always open to advice. Anyone out there want a 36 year old intern with advanced degrees in other areas?
My main skills are finding deep value opportunities and lucrative swing trade opportunities. I seem to have found a lot of bottom entries even in today's markets. I am willing to learn, enjoy games/game theory, love to read and solve problems.
I am working on starting a limited partnership for 2015 or 2016 so that I can share my gifts with family and friends.

All the Best,
I am a Pharma Chemist currently working in Oncology. I invested for a while in my 30s, but then got married and put the money into a house. Now in my 50s, I am investing again. I'm value-oriented, and try to be long-term, but in my IRA I will take a short-term opportunity if it is attractive enough. I will only buy a stock for my main account if I am sure I will keep it at least a year. Partly for tax purposes, partly for discipline. I always have zero investments in Biopharma as my paycheck provides enough exposure to that field. However, I am very heavy in tech stocks (chips, software, data center) and am always looking for tech companies on the verge of breaking out. I also have a mix of stodgy dividend (CSCO) and growth/dividend-growth stocks (SBUX, V) as the core of my investments. I am particularly interested in the psychology of investing, and many of my comments address that directly or indirectly.

I have worked in the maritime industry for the past 35 years, and recently decided to follow the advice of Peter Lynch to "invest in what you know." The various sectors in the maritime industry are cyclical, and it seems to me that investor sentiment is often out of synch with the business cycle. This creates opportunities for investors who are willing to go against the crowd.
Ten years of Engineering experience are the foundation of my versatile background and knowledge base. I've worked at AAA levels within the Manufacturing and Entertainment industries and have a passion for technology and understanding people and their perceptions.
I've lived in both the US and Mexico and have work experience in both. I'm bilingual and studied French, German and Japanese because I figured they'd come in handy for business later on. I moved around a lot growing up and have experienced both the highs and lows of life in five different states (GA, OH, TX, NC, FL), so I'm comfortable around and understand all kinds of people.
I believe in quality and excellence in everything I do, so it pushes me to always investigate topics fully and produce the best results possible. This attitude is what drove me to start two companies and learn about Finance, Stocks and Investing on my own. As such, I grew a struggling portfolio that was coming off of heavy losses at the end of Q3 in 2015 by 23% and managed to beat the S&P by 13% in 10 months.
My experiences and personality have built up to give me the ability to model and predict the future of technology and entertainment and I use that ability for all of my stock picks and general investment strategies/direction. Thanks for reading.
