I write on 3 specific subjects: 1) stocks to write call options on (covered call writing), micro-cap underfollowed stocks, and stocks that have a strong possibility of movement due to current headlines. I come from a family of entrepreneurs, coaches and mentors. I have been investing for three decades, and a financial professional for more than half of those years. Analyzing companies as a consultant or for potential acquisition is second nature to me. I was a stock broker (Fortune 500 wirehouse) and a financial advisor (Fortune 500 practice owner) for 13 years. I sold my practice in 2012 and retired to activist investing, venture capital and private equity. I live in the Midwest with my wife, four boys and two dogs.
