I am currently a marketing specialist for a biotech company. In the past I have been a chemist for biotech and pharmaceutical companies, working mainly in manufacturing science and production. My education consists of a B.S. in Chemistry and am progressing towards an M.B.A, expected graduation is 2016. My concentration is on business statistics and marketing analytics. I started investing in 2010. After some time investing I realized that the stock market is too chaotic in the short term, and while I believe anything can be modeled correctly given enough computational power, my current life situation calls for a more passive investment strategy. By passive investment, I simply mean that I do not track the day to day prices of my stocks, I believe I would go insane if I did that. Instead I prefer to analyze the long term historical trends of a company and compare this to their piers. While this is simplified explanation of my investment style, it covers the gist of it. My time frame is years. In addition, because of my background in science I like to take long positions in biotech companies that I believe are undervalued. For development stage biotech stocks, the value can vary dramatically depending on who you ask. I try to have a method to my madness. Does the reward outweigh the risk? The answer to this question is many times personal. I hope to explain my reasoning for my picks in my articles.
