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: "Aandelen selecteren als waardebelegger" and "Beleggen in bull- en bearmarkten". See bol.com (search for the titles). As a mathematician (Ph.D.) I am most interested in investment strategies with statistically favorable returns. In particular I invest in net-nets (20-30% average annual returns). I find companies with low Enterprise Value/Earnings before Tax and Interest (EV/EBIT) and strong balance sheets (20% average annual returns) also very interesting. Since such stocks are rare I invest globally. Send me a message with your email address to get example articles of my premium research on Seeking Alpha.

I have savored the sweet taste of success as well as swallowed some bitter pills since beginning my investing career in August of 2013 but, I have learned a lot and made a little money.
In my quest for knowledge and profit I have become ensnared in the philosophy of value investing. Cheap prices, a wide margin of safety, and caution are the watchwords of the day. I am particularly drawn to special situations but have fared well by simply buying and holding cheap stocks.
My thinking has been strongly influenced by the writings of Ben Graham, Howard Marks, Joel Greenblatt, and SA's very own Chris DeMuth Jr.

Contrarianism is one of his main philosophies of investment and life. Don't follow the sheep, see where the sheep are leading you. Something hard to see over all those assets.
