I tend to focus on good companies that are out of favor for various reasons. I believe that many investments should be looked at in the context of risk, thus offering minimal downside. My coverage experience includes consumer staples/discretionary, biotech, industrials, financials and energy.
Born and raised in the USA, graduated with a degree in Finance then worked at a multi-strategy global hedge fund for about 4 years analyzing stocks all over the world. In 2007 I left the USA and moved to China to study Chinese and start a business. Now, I am the CEO and Co-founder of eFin which provides wall street level research to main street investors via a proprietary algorithm. Our eFin scoe that takes into consideration hundreds of factors to provide the best period of time to make an investment in a stock.
Nevertheless, my experience working at the hedge fund and running my own business has improved vastly my investment making decisions. I believe Warren Buffett said it best “I am a better investor because I am a businessman and a better businessman because I am an investor”. I have had my share of busts and winners and have gotten wise enough to always look at both sides of every investment no matter how negative or optimistic the situation is.
Enrolled as an officer and Aerospace Engineer with 15+ years of experience in the Canadian Forces, I am interested in investing and gaining better awareness of opportunities to buy great companies at attractive prices.
I want to find companies that are doing well and bringing incredible value to shareholders both now and in the future. I prefer businesses trending in technology, healthcare, renewables, targeting both tomorrow's global generation as well as the vast number of baby-boomers as they enter retirement. I'm always looking for new ideas on how to become a better investor and getting the information I need to make well-informed decisions. The Internet has way too much content at any given moment and the challenge from my perspective is to find better ways to filter, disambiguate and learn as much as I need in order to keep abreast of the wave of change affecting companies, markets and the economy. I invest in North America because: there is a lot of volume particularly in US markets. More importantly, I believe we are poised to make significant changes in the world both for our financial and physical betterment as well as the aid we are able to extend to those economies less fortunate than us, making this world a safer, healthier, greener place. I invest in companies who share this vision.
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.
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.

My interest in Seeking Alpha stems from sheer intellectual curiosity about the investing world and a burning desire to invest in a cogent, well-reasoned manner that beats the pants off of the indexes, while still managing risk and volatility.

I am an adjunct faculty member at the R. H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. With the help of my students I focus on fundamental equity research, reviewing over 120 companies a year. This site is used to publish a sampling of the research we produce. The goal is to give the students an opportunity to participate in the production of high quality research similar to what will be demanded from them in industry. This approach is centered around the proprietary concept of Sustainable Free Cash Flow and deviates significantly from many of the popular valuation protocols. Most significantly, it treats the subject company as an on-going system that the stock price tracks. As a result, the process focuses on historical distributions of parameters that in combination, produce various levels of cash flow per share. The stock price is then compared to this output in order to ascertain its probable direction. It is important to note, that while most statistical analysis in finance focuses on relative stock price fluctuation, our analysis focuses on the variance of a company's value drivers. As a result, it does not make the same simplifying assumption common in other approaches.
