I try to carefully trade weekly & monthly stock options with expertise in mining companies & traditional manufacturers. Speak & write fluent Portuguese and speak good Spanish. Resided twice in Brazil and once on Guam Island. Employed at the same large foreign-owned Distribution Center the past 15 years & completely 100% Pro-NAFTA. Smart individual investing is the preferred solution to improving one's economic future, as opposed to vast & vague government handouts. Seeking Alpha is the #1 best financial blog because of honest opinions & superb organization.
Retired entrepreneur who now manages his stock portfolio full time. Mainly a dividend investor, particularly international stocks without withholding taxes as my tax position does not allow me to reclaim any withholding taxes.
I am ALWAYS looking for interesting stock ideas involving dividend paying stocks that pay dividends with zero or very low withholding taxes and willing to share ideas with other investors.
I also like high risk situations as I am well diversified and have a long time horizon
I am a reformed MD, now with a finance MBA, and studying valuation independently by developing some conservative DCF models using FCF per share. You can make any investment work if you set a low enough discount rate.... that's one of the discouraging things about doing anything other than passive index investing. Forecasting isn't too accurate, those darn standard deviations are too wide. Margins of safety and alpha are rare and hard to separate from the noise.
