Experienced investor and analyst, with most of my career spent on Wall Street and in London. I enjoy the analytical chase, and the prize of getting it right, especially for overlooked or under-appreciated stocks. As a CFA with a solid accounting background, I respect the numbers. Being able to first establish a fact-based view is critical to the process, and independent thought is key. That way we can at least have a basis for comparison to views from the market, which is the ultimate judge.
