My name is G. "Rockie" Kennedy and although I am professionally licensed, I comment and submit articles as an individual for informational and entertainment purposes only. I am a registered investment advisor and principal of Hanover Personal Financial Services. I am experienced in the industry since 1997 with an education in finance and economics. My degree is in finance with a concentration of financial planning. Prior to financial services industry, was a veteran of the armed services experienced in engineering and nuclear power operations. In the industry I have worked as an associate financial advisor, stock broker, and investment consultant. I have been publishing on Seeking Alpha anonymously since 2013.
I am a student of Dow Theory in that I believe the markets are leading indicators for the U.S. Economy. I follow a collection of individual stocks in my personal portfolios and select others in the transportation and industrial sectors. Most of the articles I submit center around those companies. Periodically I will submit an article on a stock that has caught my attention for other reasons, but none of my articles are intended to be investment advice.
I believe in modern portfolio theory, using a core a satellite approach in an attempt to generate alpha in a portfolio, and that individuals should be responsible for, and free to include individual securities in their portfolios.
I approach investing as a social theorist and a cultural historian. As a result, I am a contrarian. Studying the history of financialization, I have to agree with value investors like Seth Klarman, George Soros, and John Quiggin that markets are ultimately inefficient. However, I am not an orthodox value-investor. I believe in diversified strategy so as to insure maximum gains while maintaining a "margin of safety." Understanding that markets will operate inefficiently, I sometimes find "playing the greater fool's game" will yield nice short term gains. I have been investing for five years and have had proven results. I offer unique insight on fundamentals that most analysts do not consider.
Cornelius Vanderbilt has done more than any other man to shape our idea of investing. He was the ultimate contrarian. As an investor he looked for both value and risk. His approach to markets is complex and contradictory but can be learned from.

Over seven years of experience making contrarian bets based on my macro view and stock-specific turnaround stories to garner outsized returns with a favorable risk/reward profile. If you want me to cover a specific stock or have a question for an article, just let me know!
Investor with more than 5 years experience trading commodities, gold and silver miners, exploration companies, oil and gas, platinum and other hard assets.
The investment style is part contrarian/value and I actively seek investments in distressed sectors.
I look for a change in sentiment that precedes the change in trend. Moments of "lag" in sentiment can provide superb entry points into special situations at a discount; and obversely, manic enthusiasm can provide an opportunity to go short.
I research the fundamentals, know what I am getting into, and go long or short accordingly. Technical studies of the market are also an active part of my trading. I have invested for 22 years.
