I am an individual investor in a quest to minimize portfolio rotation.
I am agnostic in terms of growth vs value, but lacking the time, the resources and (most importantly) the brains, I tend to look more among the latter set of opportunities.
I am professionally versed in the European upstream O&G arena, but skeptic on its future (and optimist about the clean-tech momentum of California).
One could argue I should have an edge in European stocks: I am from Spain and based in the UK, but like Buffett says, it's far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price. So my portfolio is OW US and UW Europe.
N.B. If some of my comments are overly cynic, don't be offended, just an invitation to look after your $ more carefully.
