Over 6 years' experience on the buyside. Spent nearly 3 years of my professional career as a Research Analyst investing in public markets (stocks) and the other 2 in the private arena (VC/growth equity and distressed/restructurings). I am a highly passionate investor and always consider both the macroeconomic backdrop coupled with in-depth fundamental research to identify the best investment ideas, which are generally contrarian, value-biased, opportunistic or event-driven.
I specialize in understanding the dynamics that underlie and drive investment performance in today's global financial markets, despite a muddling of views among regulators and investors alike in the new, free money era. Following the global financial crisis, expansionary monetary policies of unprecedented magnitude implemented by major central banks across the globe (primarily those of the so called "core economies") have completely redefined the ways in which the global markets operate. I am not your typical hedge fund or money manager who stamps a disclaimer on investment performance with the assertion that "we are bottom-up, fundamental equity investors" who "do not attempt to forecast the markets." I go far beyond this basic, fundamental analysis and offer unique foresight into major anticipated (equity and credit) market movements BEFORE they materialize.
I have a with a knack for identifying under- and over-valued positions and a strong understanding of macroeconomics. I constantly analyze and evaluate central bank policies globally as well as global trade conditions. I have unique experience particular to sectors such as energy (both conventional and non-conventional), agriculture, infrastructure and real assets (industrials, real estate, water infrastructure, roads/railways, etc.), in addition to chemicals and consumer products; however, I've been a generalist research analyst for the majority of my career to date. Options are a trading mechanism of choice, particularly when I have visible catalysts for near-term price appreciation (or depreciation in the case of puts). I also utilize options strategies to earn large profits with limited downside risk.
I am an energy economist with around five years of professional experience. Besides my work as an oil and gas market consultant, I enjoy investing in currencies and tech stocks. My alma mater is Norwegian School of Economics, NHH.

I am Seeking Alpha's CEO and Editor-in-Chief. My love for the stock markets goes back to when I was a kid. Who else remembers combing through the stock quotes at the back of the business section of your local paper?
I joined Seeking Alpha in 2006 and launched Wall Street Breakfast and Market Currents, our top-of-class short-form breaking news for investors. In 2010 I became editor-in-chief and in 2015 I became CEO.

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.
Institutional investment manager authoring on a variety of topics that pique my interest, and could further discourse in this online community. I hold an MBA from the University of Chicago, and have earned the CFA designation.
My articles may contain statements and projections that are forward-looking in nature, and therefore inherently subject to numerous risks, uncertainties and assumptions. While my articles focus on generating long-term risk-adjusted returns, investment decisions necessarily involve the risk of loss of principal. Individual investor circumstances vary significantly, and information gleaned from my articles should be applied to your own unique investment situation, objectives, risk tolerance, and investment horizon.

Currently writes for a variety of sites including online trading sites and general market information sites.She is willing to use her specialty knowledge and keen eyes to work for investing and stock trading services to turn ideas and global trends into investment opportunities.
I am the founder and director of three companies: Euro Pacific Capital (www.europac.net), a full service, registered broker-dealer and RIA which specializes in foreign securities; Euro Pacific Precious Metals (www.europacmetals.com), a gold & silver coin and bullion dealer; and Euro Pacific Asset Management (www.europacificfunds.com), a fund management company that is building a family of mutual funds based on my economic philosophy.
I am most well-known for accurately and publicly predicting the collapse of the housing and credit markets, the subprime crisis, and the increasing price of gold relative to the US dollar, resulting in the viral YouTube video "Peter Schiff Was Right."
I fly around the country and the world speaking to diverse groups, from academic conferences to Tea Party rallies. I have also appeared regularly on cable news stations since the mid-2000s trying to warn people of the impending economic collapse brought on by destructive fiscal and economic policy in Washington.
To that end, I published my first book, "Crash Proof: How to Profit from the Coming Economic Collapse," in early 2007, predicting the 2008 economic crisis while the mainstream commentators were saying it was impossible. Then, at the height of the crisis, I released "The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets," in which I showed readers how to help protect their finances in turbulent times. I've written updated versions of both Crash Proof and The Little Book since then, talking about how my predictions fared and why the worst of the crash is still ahead of us. I also wrote a book with my brother based on a popular comic book my dad wrote in the '70s. "How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes" is an illustrated fable that starts with three guys on an island and uses allegory to explain exactly how we got into our current mess.
In the 2010 election season, I ran for the US Senate seat of retiring Senator Chris Dodd in my home state of Connecticut in order to bring attention to the mounting problems in this country. While I did not win the seat, my message of fiscal and monetary sanity was brought to a new audience of voters and political leaders.
I've had a regular video blog on YouTube since 2009, called The Schiff Report (www.youtube.com/user/SchiffReport) and, after giving up my long-running Wall Street Unspun podcast, I am now the host of a nightly radio show called The Peter Schiff Show (www.schiffradio.com).

PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS.
I possess 10+ years of trading and investing experience, with a focus on precious metals, currency, energy, and technology markets. My decisions are based on market cycles, valuation metrics, technical analysis, and industry-specific trends and technologies. I typically hold positions for several years.
I also run InformedTrades.com, a site dedicated to helping individuals learn to trade the world's financial markets.
Hello. I am Peter Pham, and AlphaVN.com is my creation. As a former proprietary trader with expertise in institutional sales and trading based in Vietnam, my approach is to mix quantitative trading techniques and fundamental analysis to provide a unique view of the changes taking place in the emerging markets of Southeast Asia. Those changes create opportunities for both domestic and international investors. I also advise some of the largest international fund managers in the world on how to trade and approach Vietnam’s markets. Some of my current picks have returned more than 100% since early 2011.
This background has helped me build my local and international network of contacts, through organizing company roadshows and conferences, and has enabled me to embark on exciting new ventures. In the past year, AlphaVN has grown from a personal project to a respected voice covering Asian markets. Through AlphaVN's partnership with Stocktwits.com, it is now possible to interact with an audience of up to 40 million people through both traditional media outlets like Reuters, CNN Money and newer online investment resources like Yahoo Finance. Having worked on both sides of the world (Asia and North America), I can help bridge the
communication gap between East and West. I am able to illuminate the difference between Asia in theory and Asia in reality for market professionals from momentum traders to generational investors.
Building on this relationship, AlphaVN also has syndication partnerships with leading financial resource providers. On Seeking Alpha, my work has generated enough traffic to garner top readership in multiple categories including Forex, Demographics and ETF Long and Short Ideas. On The Motley Fool, more than a dozen pieces gestated here at AlphaVN have been chosen Editor's Choice and have generated significant traffic and discussion.
AlphaVN has signed a strategic partnership agreement with AWR Lloyd, a research and advisory firm Southeast Asia, to better tell the story of commodity and infrastructure investment.
2012 also saw the publication of my first book, The Big Trade: Simple Solutions for Maximum Market Returns by Wiley.
Dedicated to telling the story of the billions under-served by the financial press, AlphaVN.com is becoming a unique offering in the world of information, creating a vital link for investors in the West seeking solid information about the economic changes happening in the East. It is our goal to provide the most accurate accounting of their money's true potential in these markets. Our position is that as Southeast Asia grows, AlphaVN will grow alongside it by providing the right information at the right time to the right people, no matter where they might be. It is through partnerships in media and both sides of the investment aisle that we hope to bring Southeast Asia's compelling story to the investing world.
