I'm a full time proprietary trader, and generally focus on companies in which I have some level of interaction in order to add an important perspective - that of the consumer. Combining this perspective with an investment analysis on the value that a stock would add to various style portfolios provides a useful combination.

President of Almington Capital - Merchant Bankers.
Investing in publicly traded securities, private equity, real estate, venture capital.
Taking advantage of deep value opportunities, growth opportunities, and special situations across a range of asset classes and industries.
Long-term investor with a balanced portfolio of growth and value. I subscribe to the adage that to beat the market you must invest where the average investor does not. Therefore I tend to look for unloved or overlooked companies, attempt to understand whether the market might be wrong, and find an advantage.
I am currently a portfolio manager at an RIA in Philadelphia with over $1 billion in assets. The portfolio is dedicated towards macro themed positioning with equities, ETFs, fixed income, as well as options and other alternatives. There are opportunities everywhere, both on the long and short side, and I aim to generate absolute returns on an annualized basis for clients. My absolute return portfolio has returned double-digit percentage returns over the last decade regardless of if the market is selling off, or rallying higher with enthusiasm. Relative returns are nice, but at the end of the day, you can't eat relative returns. When the S&P 500 is down 20%, it doesn't necessarily mean you have to be down too. Join my Marketplace service, Absolute Returns, and see how I am positioning my portfolio in real-time, and what trade ideas are coming about daily. I also offer a live chat as part of the service, where questions and ideas can be discussed.

I'm involved in running a leveraged fixed-income, absolute return, hedge fund that aims at providing its investors with double-digit returns, per annum. The fund runs a fast, frequent and furious trading strategy and it focuses on the very short term. Definitely not a Buy & Hold!
I'm also advising and consulting to private individuals, mostly HNWI that I had been serving through many years of working within the private banking, wealth management and asset management arenas. This activity focuses on the long run and it's mostly based on a Buy & Hold strategy.
Risk management is at the very core of our essence and while we normally take LONG-naked positions, we constantly hedge our positions, in order to protect the downside, that usually occurs at times when you least expect that to take place...
I cover all asset-classes though mostly focusing on cash cows and high dividend paying "machines" that may generate high (total) returns: Interest-sensitive, income-generating, instruments, e.g. Bonds, REITs, BDCs, Preferred Shares, MLPs, etc. combined with a variety of high-risk, growth and value stocks.
I believe and invest for the long run but I'm very minded of the short run too. While it's possible to make a massive-quick "kill", here and there, good things usually come in small packages; so do returns. Therefore, I (hope but) don't expect my investments to double in value over a short period of time. I do, however, aim at an annual double-digit returns on average, preferably on an absolute basis, i.e. regardless of markets' returns and directions.
Timing is Everything! While investors can't time the market, I believe that this applies only to the long term. In the short-term (a couple of months) one can and should pick the right moment and the right entry point, based on his subjective-personal preferences, risk aversion and goals. Long-term, strategy/macro, investment decisions can't be timed while short-term, implementation/micro, investment decision, can!
When it comes to investments and trading I believe that the most important virtues are healthy common sense, general wisdom, sufficient research, vast experience, strive for excellence, ongoing willingness to learn, minimum ego, maximum patience, ability to withstand (enormous) pressure/s, strict discipline and a lot of luck!...

We are a two-person team, one works in tech the other in finance. We are passionate about value investing. Upon some successful years managing our portfolio, we started DTF Cap to manage outside capital. Since inception on 6th April 2017, we achieved 20% return. Tipranks also tracks our SA picks. Currently, we are educating ourselves about Shipping and cognitive biases. We appreciate the SA community that engages in meaningful discussions and encouragements. We are here to learn from you all.
Our core portfolio centres around small to mid-cap value stocks in North America. Our primary goal is to avoid permanent capital loss and maintain 15% average return over the next 10 years. We invest in 3 tranches to minimise risk and hold shares for at least a year for our thesis to play out.
Investing has taught us many lessons, and as we write, we reflect on our actions and results, and with no intention of endorsing an investment. Our picks have yielded considerable returns since publication here on SeekingAlpha, for example, FSLR (approximately 105% return), SEDG (120%), FSTR (80%), SBLK (25%), SHIP (10%), PIR (-15%), and GNC (-10%). One highlight was FOSL (80%), which was our most audacious call to buy at the maximum pessimism, to our surprise, it yielded 90% after just 3 weeks since publication. On the other hand, FSTR stood the test of time and yielded 80%+ after 4 articles.
In our portfolio, besides the stocks published above, we allocate heavily in Valeant Pharmaceuticals (NYSE:VRX), and constantly looking out for value opportunities.

I follow a long term approach and try to see things from a value perspective.
When I recommend the purchase of a common stock I have a time horizon of at least 12 to 18 month in mind. The stock market is highly volatile and I believe that an investor can only outperform the overall market by buying stocks of good companies with potential future product growth for cheap or at least reasonable prices and hold these over a long time period, ignoring or adding during unjustified share price pullbacks.
