Value & Momentum Breakouts. If targeting 5% weekly or monthly returns is more appealing to you than chasing 5% annually, please join me as I publish my latest findings in weekly and monthly articles! During my more than 25 years of investing I got bored with low annual returns and began looking to harness well documented financial anomalies for excess risk adjusted returns. I leverage forensic analysis and the latest academic financial models to identify profitable irregularities in fundamental and momentum characteristics. I am a finance PhD and MBA who is always looking for new investments and profitable opportunities in an ever changing market. I am also a certified fraud examiner and investment adviser who thoroughly enjoys testing new financial theories.

Disclosure: I'm not a financial adviser. All articles are my opinion - they are not suggestions to buy or sell any securities. Perform your own due diligence and consult a financial professional before trading.
I currently help students understand fundamental analysis of equities and how to explore the use of Bloomberg terminals for doing meaningful research. Recently I've been covering cryptocurrencies more because the field is exciting and not well researched. I've slowed my writing on stocks due to the nature of my investment process. I look at earnings transcripts, do ratio analysis and sentiment analysis, and look at price action before I buy. These are often not enough to fill a detailed article like the ones I was writing and I would rather not publish weak pieces. I still hope to give my insights on equities occasionally (likely through blog posts), but will be moving to cover the CryptoSphere more. If you're interested in cryptocurrencies, even just to learn more, I hope you'll stick around!
I am a dividend investor and look for undervalued investments in the stock market. I identify misunderstood and undervalued equity investments and hold those securities until their price approximates my estimate of intrinsic value. I am a long-term investor only.
I am building a $100,000 high-yield income portfolio. I am running this portfolio as an experiment to see if long-term sustainable income can be generated from a diversified pool of high-risk, high-yield securities. I am willing to accept high risk in order to meet my performance goals.

Peter Way Associates provides daily updated, near-term price range forecasts for over 2,000 widely-held and actively-traded stocks, ETFs and market Indexes.__
These are derived from the way market professionals protect their own capital placed at risk while helping big-money portfolio managers adjust their holdings in multi-million-dollar "block" transactions.__
Having these price-change prospects available on a continuous basis encourages individual investors to actively and economically build up the values of their own smaller portfolios. PWA only provides information for individual investors; it no longer manages investments for others.__
Rates of portfolio capital growth being achieved by subscribers are at MULTIPLES of the growth in market averages, due to the efficient use of holding period time and the compounding of gains a number of times each year.__
Risks of capital loss are protected against by insightful selection guidance and holding-period-limit disciplines. The advantages of good selection and careful timing amply cover a much smaller portion of unavoidable losses.__
These Market-maker forecasts have several decades of demonstrated productivity. Earlier in the 20th century they were used by large institutional portfolios, and now in the 21st century they are available only to individual investor wealth-building portfolios. Thousands of day-by-day identifications of specific securities having consistent, odds-on profitable results rule out any likelihood of their exceptional outcomes being due to chance. These price forecasts cannot be found elsewhere.__

Creator of the Core Value Portfolio. The goal is simple but not easy. By shooting for an extraordinary goal of compounding capital at 20% annually over the long-term, the portfolio embraces concentration and goes through dramatic swings. Those without conviction will sell when positions don't go their way, but the Core Value Portfolio always takes advantage when the market is wrong.
The Core Value Portfolio has significantly outperformed the market since its inception, but it also experienced extended periods of underperformance. This is a sacrifice that I'm willing to make for the sake of achieving superior returns over the long-term.

I am now trading independently and I hope that this will serve as a resource center as you research your own trades. I trade stock and options and mainly focus on event driven strategies such as mergers & acquisitions, biotechnology, and earnings. As I place trades in my portfolio, I will update my blog with the trade, price, and thought process.
Dr. Kris has two degrees from MIT because one just wasn't enough. Her life goal was to figure out the universe and having done that (at least to her satisfaction), she decided to tackle something even more difficult—the stock market.
Applying the scientific method along with an insatiably curious mind, she began trading stocks, futures, and options in order to find the holy grail to market success. She's discovered to her immense satisfaction that not only is there one way to succeed but many. Combining her love of cooking with the stock market, she's devised recipes for investment success designed to please the palate of most investors. Dr. Kris currently manages a private equity long/short portfolio and writes of her current research projects that appear on her website, StockMarketCookBook.com.
Her most exciting project is applying market timing models to Modern Portfolio Theory to not only give greater returns but at substantially lower levels of risk. (See PortfolioPreserver.com for further information.)
