Private investor. I've been investing in stocks for 20+ years. I feel I've learned a lot over that time. I run a focused portfolio and patience is my mantra. I tend to focus on three types of stocks mostly in the small cap sector: - Companies with new technology that will disrupt an industry. I do not invest in biotechs and am not looking to gamble. These must be high conviction picks with proven technology, clear goals, and excellent management. - Value plays based on fundamentals. The companies must not only be cheap, but have a good story regarding how they will get the market to realize their true value. - Stocks with special situations or upcoming catalysts.
