I am an engineer who enjoys investing.
I have learned the importance of research in my field, and have applied that to lithium junior companies. The EV revolution is underway, and those who invest early could see life-changing gains.
Formerly a Wall Street executive from a premier investment bank, author EXP's goal is to help investors discover stocks before the "crowd." The first article published was on "LNG" many years ago; an undiscovered gem. BLOG: https://seekingalpha.com/account/authorboard/instablog
This is not an easy business. Investing is psychological in nature and can be extremely taxing. Patience is key. Not all ideas are written about or picked for publication.
EXP works hard to identify and write about current stock opportunities in the market that can produce some huge gains from disconnects in stock prices. These inefficiencies can be taken advantage of if you can properly identify opportunities, and then manage to act on them before the crowd.
EXP resides in the USA and is very thankful to followers worldwide.

I am a Ph.D. level scientist at a major pharmaceutical company. Previously I was an NIH Cancer Postdoctoral fellow at UPENN. Through my extensive research background, I am able to quickly decipher clinical information and act on it. I specialize in analyzing and trading biotech/healthcare stocks both long and short. I maintain a few core positions and trade clinical events based on extensive research to realize large percentage gains. I am open to opportunities in consulting for financial firms or local advisors. Please contact me if you are interested.
I'm a chartered accountant by profession, hailing from India, who is also pursuing CFA. I look for investments that generate strong value in the long run, and also help investors avoid pitfalls through my analysis.
Trained as a scientific programmer, I worked on war game software for NORAD (North American Air Defense) and statistical software for Abbott Labs. For most of my 40-year career developed and sold financial and accounting software.
Was principal or founder of 3 small (5-30 employees) software companies.
Wrote a book on public pensions and a play that won an award in Writer Digest Magazine's annual writers competition, a contest that draws over 10,000 entries a year.
I am a biotech investor with a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. I hope to provide a crucial piece of total due diligence as well as interesting insight into clinical findings that may impact readers' portfolios and lives.
I also collaborate with Avisol Capital Partners on their Marketplace service known as the Total Pharma Tracker (TPT). Some of my work will be available to TPT subscribers either exclusively, or in advance. If you are interested, please click the link above!
I hold a Graduate Diploma in Applied Finance and Investment (similar to CFA), and a Graduate Diploma in Financial Planning. I host a Marketplace Service, Trend Investing.
I have 30 years of personal investing experience, and 17 years of professional financial advising experience. As a global investor I use a macro thematic approach searching for good value and/or high growth. I search the globe for great investments with a focus on Asia, Emerging and Frontier Markets as well as "trend investing". I assess a countries demographics and growth potential. Some trends I currently follow include the rising Asian middle class, electric vehicles and the lithium/cobalt/graphite/nickel/copper miners,the online data boom, renewable energy, energy storage, smartphones, 3D printing, and personal robots.
I also love to invest in income producing investments that can grow over time and benefit from compounding....Included here are the near monopoly businesses such as the stock exchanges, and the high quality income producers.
I use direct shares, ETFs, mutual funds and some direct property investments.

This includes helping with overall strategy, helping with capital structure management, helping facilitate liquidity, helping facilitate Joint Ventures and broader M&A, and helping restructure the business segments if necessary. Recently Dallas has been interviewed by The Pittsburgh Business Times, The Banker, Columbus Business First, Houston Business Journal, The Deal, Energy Intelligence, and his tweets have been used by CNBC to highlight hot button issues regarding Carl Icahn, Bill Ackman, Nelson Peltz’s takeover attempts at DuPont, etc. Dallas has also been quoted and sourced to by StreetSweeper.org, Marcellus.com, MarcellusDrilling.com, Bakken.com, OilOnline.com, and other physical and online publications. "One place of great inefficiency is in the stressed equity markets – or the markets in which a company appears as bankruptcy or a breakup is inevitable. As equities become stressed they often sell down to absurd levels of value that present, should there be value to be unlocked, opportunities for “venture level” returns."

John Scherr is the founder and President of WhisperNumber.com, an independent financial research firm focused on earnings expectations. He is a regular contributor to Fox Business Network, and has been featured in Barron's, the Wall Street Journal, and MarketWatch. He is considered a leading expert on 'whisper numbers' and post earnings price movement analysis.
Since 1998, WhisperNumber.com has been the leader in social media analytics ('crowd sourced estimates') for earnings. Receive email alerts on those companies most likely to move higher or lower when they beat or miss the whisper number. These are the Whisper Reactors. http://www.whispernumber.com/suboptions_wr.jsp When earnings season gets underway, traders, analysts and investors are watching closely to see if companies' results squared with Wall Street's expectations. Of particular interest is the "whisper number". A veteran in the business, WhisperNumber.com takes a unique approach: its earnings estimates come from regular polling of its members. The site points to independent academic studies supporting its claims that the crowd is wiser than the Wall Street priesthood (www.whispernumber.com/study.jsp). WhisperNumber.com's free registration buys voluminous information related to the profit histories of companies entering earnings season. Type a ticker into its search engine for an exhaustive earnings profile of a company, alongside a calendar of coming earnings and an education center with whisper strategies for trading. A subscription payment of $395 for six months buys access to the company's premium offering, Whisper Reactors (http://www.whispernumber.com/signIn_wr.jsp), a list of highly volatile companies whose prices show a high correlation to their earnings outcomes. WhisperNumber.com claims a variety of double-digit returns for different types of plays over holding periods of 1-to-30 days. Trading on whispers is a technical play on market psychology, rather than a bet on a company's fundamental strengths. To a technician, share price is just a market-clearing mechanism that strikes a balance between buyer greed and seller fear.
I have been studying and investing in global stocks for the past 3+ years, with a special inclination for tech stocks, because I believe the tech industry is the most rapidly developing industry around the world. Though, this does not mean that I overlook other stocks all together: I have also been a keen observer of the energy sector, the banking sector as well as the ever-expanding food industry. As a writer, I believe giving a rounded view of all the stocks - including both short-term and long-term prospects - is paramount.
