Seeking Alpha Analyst Since 2011
Portuguese independent trader and analyst. I have worked for both sell side (brokerage) and buy side (fund management) institutions. I've been investing professionally for around 30 years.
I have a Marketplace service here on Seeking Alpha called Idea Generator that's focused on deep value, real-time actionable ideas based on valuation and catalysts. The Idea Generator portfolio has beaten the S&P 500 by more than 74% since inception (2015).

This is how things looked at the end of November 2016:
The portfolio uses only conservative allocations (less than 10% per individual stock idea, except for special and rare cases like pair trades or index ETF exposure). It uses both long and short positions, and is rarely if ever at a 100% net long exposure (though it could conceivably go higher than that, it never did).
