I have a BS in Chemical Engineering with a minor in Philosophy, and am working toward my doctorate in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. I've worked for a consumer products company in Supply Chain and Operations for two years. I began investing in 2011 after being self-taught with classics like The Intelligent Investor, and parlaying this with my on-the-job corporate experience and engineering analytical skills. Since 2011, I have an IRR of 19% reaped from only 13 stocks/ETFs. This is on purpose; I tenaciously analyze a company's fundamentals to determine my own fair value, then highly concentrate my cash with the confidence to average down. My goal on seeking alpha is to sharpen my analysis skills, and provide useful insight to the community at-large.
