I have been managing my own portfolio for about three years now. I focus mainly on value opportunities in the small and micro-cap space, although I will survey the entire market landscape, with the result that I've actually found some opportunities in the mid-cap space recently, contrary to my general inclinations. A big component of my investing philosophy is to try to have my errors be largely skewed towards errors of omission rather than errors of commission, as the former are much less expensive than the latter. As such, my writing has been and, I expect, will be much more about opportunities I pass on rather than investments I make. (I am primarily on the hunt for opportunities I'd be willing to make a significant, concentrated investment in - e.g., ~10% of my portfolio.) I don't claim to be an expert on most things, so when I go wrong, I will be looking forward to an education from the smart readers and participants of the SeekingAlpha community. Happy investing!
