Relevant to this site, I run diversified portfolios for myself and my relatives, with emphases on timberland and stocks of timber companies. As a more recent development, I have relatively large positions in several Russian companies/funds. Long only. My stellar investments were Pixar, Netflix, Ebay, and Costco – I was an early investor in all of them. My nightmare “investment” was Sino-Forest. In my other life, I am a biomedical researcher – work as Full Professor for a major healthcare company, run a journal in my field of research, and consult pharma companies on thermoregulation-related issues. Hope to retire to my beloved tree farm – rather sooner than later.
