I want to find clarity in the financial markets on a domestic and international basis. Through my writings on Seeking Alpha I hope to create an open forum discussion about my investment ideas/investments. Managing money for the past 10 years there is still a significant amount of knowledge I can obtain from fellow participants.
My investment strategy is a combination of two legendary investors Warren Buffett and George Soros. If you are familiar with Warren Buffett, he once said if you had a punch hole card with only 20 investments you could trade in one life time, you would be extremely careful with what you would invest in.
George Soros in his book ‘Alchemy of Finance,’ details Stan Drunkenmiller (another legendary investor) was inquiring about shorting the British pound and Soros responded, “If the Schlesinger quotes were accurate, why just build steadily? “Go for the jugular,” Soros advised.
I run a concentrated value oriented fund that will take either side of the trade and as Buffett and Soros; I perform an extreme amount of research for the right to put on a trade that will “Go for the jugular.’

I am a physician and vitamin D expert. I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina School of Medicine. In my 35 year career in medicine, I have practiced emergency medicine, general practice and psychiatry.
In 2003, I established the Vitamin D Council, a non-profit dedicated to educating the public and health professionals about vitamin D. I frequently speak about vitamin D and have spoken at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. I recently served as a "visiting professor" for Marshall University School of Medicine's 25th Annual Research Day.
I have been studying, writing and lecturing about vitamin D for more than 12 years. The Vitamin D Council's website gets over 2.5 million users per year. If you Google my name, "John Cannell", you will get over 60,000 hits, almost all about vitamin D. If you search for "Cannell JJ" on Google Scholar, you will see I have written more than a dozen peer-reviewed scientific articles about vitamin D. Three of my scientific articles (two about influenza and vitamin D and one about autism and vitamin D) are the most cited articles in the history of their respective journals.
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.
Leah Frakes started her career as an equity analyst. She has since worked as an equity analyst and a financial writer at a number of websites. She studied economics in college and has a real fascination with money, the markets, and how the economy works.
I'm a value investor with a concentrated portfolio. My focus is on purchasing the greatest risk adjusted return. Ideal companies have strong balance sheets, consistent cash flows, and a history of excellent capital allocation. I spend a lot of time looking at companies in out-of-favor industries and those undergoing some sort of corporate action.
I'm always looking to hear what those on the other side of a trade have to say. I write primarily about the companies that I am on-the-fence about purchasing (or current holdings that I am thinking about selling) in the hopes that someone will point out a flaw in my thesis.
I am not a financial adviser. Nothing I post is financial advice. I do not recommend stocks and I am not promising anyone results of any kind. All my posts are comprised of general information and my own opinions. Investors should do their own research, verify all facts, consider all possible risks, and consult with their financial adviser before buying or selling any security.
