Contrarian, Deep Value, Special Situations, Tech

Seeking Alpha Analyst Since 2008

I started investing right after the dotcom bubble crash. I am very interested in underfollowed stocks and special situations. Some screens and methodologies like Joel Greenblatt's Magic Formula and Hewitt Heiserman's Earnings Power Chart are what I use for long-term investing.

Summary

  • By now, most have heard of Keith Gill, the name behind the Reddit username /u/DeepF**kingValue, a.k.a. Youtuber Roaring Kitty.
  • In a few of his seminal videos, he suggests viewers to go to Seeking Alpha and read through the bullish articles, including mine.

The GameStop Reddit /r/wallstreetbets drama has been discussed and covered by the media endlessly.  I don't need to re-hash it, but I did want to post a few screencaps that show Seeking Alpha's influence in the GameStop saga.  There were many other sources of analysis as well. But one must wonder how much confidence our articles gave to Keith Gill in establishing his infamous stock and LEAP call positions.  Link to my July 17, 2020 article.

I was fortunate to have started adding to my position I started in 2018, averaging down in 2020.  And yes, I sold the majority of my shares, albeit most of it a bit too early, but still at a tremendous profit.  I'm looking forward to the movie.
