My real name is Dale Satre. I am a sophomore high school student living in Brentwood, California. I have been very passionate about economics since seventh grade, and am eager to start my own investment bank (msg me for more info). After a spark in seventh grade, I have aggressively studied economics on my own and how the market really moves, and how the world really works. I love to learn by myself, and believe that it is my ability to do so that will bring me to success. I love reading WSJ, Foreign Affairs, and any and all books about business, economics, politics, or anything. I also love to write. I am an editor of Wikipedia, and have been writing down business plans and business ideas since seventh grade. I hope I can bring my expertise to the table here. And in writing, I also love to get connections. I'd love to be a part of your network and we can learn together. A person like me has a lot of prove here. I can't wait to get started.
I'm the founder of Seeking Alpha. I led it for its first 10 years until 2015. Two years later, I returned to Seeking Alpha to run product, which is the aspect of my work as a founder I most loved. I started Seeking Alpha after working for five years as a technology research analyst for Morgan Stanley in New York. After I left, I wrote The ETF Investing Guide (which you can find by clicking on "Author's Picks" below), and some articles about individual stocks, and then started inviting other people to contribute to the website. Seeking Alpha is now the dominant crowdsourced platform for discussion of stocks and investing, and the only place with coverage of many mid and small cap stocks. I have a B.A from Oxford University and an MSc from The London School of Economics, and am married with five children.
