As I'm a long-term investor, I'll highlight some stockpicks which will have a 5-7 year investment horizon. As I strongly believe a portfolio should consist of a mixture of dividend-paying stocks and growth stocks, my articles will reflect my thoughts on this mixture.
King Rat: Title of a James Clavell novel as well as the antagonist in the novel. People do not want to see themselves as King Rat but we must all be careful not to let ourself become one anyway.
A short (and true) story of the opposite type of character in the same situation is in Geoffrey Bingham's "The Story Of The Rice Cakes".
King Rat used to be a group of investors that grew to 8.
4 entrepreneurs, 2 MBAs, 1 stock broker, and 1 housewife (who was the most successful of the group). 4 of the 8 were (legal) immigrants into the US, and 1 a US expat. Between us, 17 languages were spoken. Our combined investment experience was over 200 years.
As of February, 2017, only 1 of us, the expat, is still an active investor and posting to SeekingAlpha. I grew up in California and now live in Asia, spending most of my time doing volunteer work because my clients let me.
I am never short. I am often wrong (formerly long KGC, GPRO) but learn from mistakes.
My investment style fits my needs. What people need to learn before they invest is 1) who they are
2) what they need.
3) figure out risk tolerance and comfort zone
4) find a strategy that meets their needs
5) find stocks that meet their strategy within the scope of their comfort level
6) be ready to sell whenever stocks no longer meet their needs, fit their strategy, or fit in their comfort levels
7) understand tax consequences of a given security before they buy
8) be able to admit when a mistake is made
9) analyze failures and successes
10) have fun
A stock may be great for one person but terrible for the next. People need to remember to apply knowledge to their personal context and act accordingly. Application of knowledge is the cultivation of wisdom. Copying is convenient but rarely leads to understanding.
Acting Man has been named after the title of the first chapter of Ludwig von Mises' book "Human Action" - the best treatise on economics ever written. The blog's main author is Pater Tenebrarum, an independent analyst who has been involved with financial markets for 34 years and is writing economic and market analyses for independent research organizations and a European hedge fund consultancy. Acting Man presents articles on the markets and the economy, a mixture of commentary on current events as well as economic theory and history, mainly from an Austrian School of Economics viewpoint. As more authors have joined the site, we have begun to broaden our palette a bit, but our orientation remains the same: pro-free market, anti-state, pro peace.

Came of age as tricky Dick separated USD from gold and poofed the petro dollar.
Capitalism is a favorite power tool though it doesn't cut it like it used to. Proponent of sound money, actual free markets, and long walks on the beach.
Motto: buy and hold physical silver.
Inactive of late as I don't advocate buying stocks of any kind for lack of trust in the banking system, but that's just me.
Wishing everyone peace and prosperity in the times ahead.
Investor, Entrepreneur, Financial Historian, Austrian School Economist, Investment Analyst, and Contrarian. Co-founded the investor education, financial education and consulting company, Wall St for Main St, LLC in 2009. I've taught beginners how to invest and also consulted for high net worth individuals worth 6-8 figures helping teach them how markets are changing. Became interested in the stock market and investing after the 2008 crash. Woke up then started taking back control of my financial freedom. I've read over 100 books on investing, entrepreneurship, etc and also increased my financial education through thousands of articles, thousands of podcasts and over 100 documentaries. Over 10,000 hours of market research. I more than tripled my investing capital while I learned how to invest and I've made 10 times my money on some stocks in my young career. Double major in history and political science from Virginia Tech. Law school and MBA program drop out. Learned investing after college without having to unlearn Keynesian Economics and other bad academic theories that don't work in the real world.
I've also interviewed and argued with hundreds of big name investors like Jim Rogers, Dr. Marc Faber, Rick Rule, Ross Beaty, Doug Casey, Vitaliy Katsenelson, David McAlvany, Todd Harrison, etc on Wall St for Main St podcasts.
I've worked in the past as an IAR/RIA (fancy name for a stock broker) at a very large retail firm and as a full time investment analyst at a well known paid newsletter company for retail investors for my day job.

Former ML broker but I hated the cold-calling. Carroll School MBA. Have started and built multiple successful businesses, and my current endeavor may take me to retirement - it allows me to "work to live", rather than the reverse. I believe in diversification - equities, fixed income, real estate, precious metals, art & antiquities, liquid cash. I'm just here to learn - any day in which I don't learn something new is a day that I let get past me. I'd like to someday complete a full set of Chinese gold pandas, all years and denominations (hence my profile photo), but they're harder to acquire than most people realize. I'm open minded, but I also have a good nose for BS and there's a shedload of it here on SA. If you spew it I will call you on it, and I expect full reciprocation where deserved.

I'm an asset manager at Hebba Alternative Investments with a focus on real assets. In my articles I like to focus on events that affect the macro environment for assets (especially gold and silver), and also introduce readers to different metrics that I believe are under-utilized when assessing investments.
On a more personal note, I'm a firm believer that there can be honesty, morality, and integrity in finance (though its rare) and i'd like to believe that I stick to those principles. Thus I never "pump and dump" stocks, I always list the securities we own, and I take it very seriously when I recommend a company - I do not want to see any investors/readers lose money because of my recommendations.
I'm not always right with recommendations, but investors and readers can know that I always tell the truth (there is no deception) and I eat my own cooking as recommendations are either always owned OR the reason I dont own them is given (usually related to restrictions on stocks I can buy).
Advising people in financial matters is a serious issue and integrity is much more important than money to me, but I do believe both can co-exist. You live with money, but after your death you only have your morality and integrity and thus i've made my choice between the two. A bit philosophical for a bio, but I dont think there's a better way to give investors my background than that.
We offer investors a free weekly email list detailing gold, silver, and general economic markets which you can sign up for at: http://www.communitysynergy.com/subscribe/hebbainvestments_subscribe.html

I mainly focus on two sectors: technology and auto industry. I am long only and I like to take a conservative approach where I sell covered calls on the shares I hold in order to reduce my risks. Some of the stocks I follow closest are Nokia, Microsoft, Ford and Apple. I believe that being able to see beyond numbers and actually understanding business models of companies we cover is crucial to provide useful insight on companies.
