Creator of the Core Value Portfolio. The goal is simple but not easy. By shooting for an extraordinary goal of compounding capital at 20% annually over the long-term, the portfolio embraces concentration and goes through dramatic swings. Those without conviction will sell when positions don't go their way, but the Core Value Portfolio always takes advantage when the market is wrong.
The Core Value Portfolio has significantly outperformed the market since its inception, but it also experienced extended periods of underperformance. This is a sacrifice that I'm willing to make for the sake of achieving superior returns over the long-term.

I currently help students understand fundamental analysis of equities and how to explore the use of Bloomberg terminals for doing meaningful research. Recently I've been covering cryptocurrencies more because the field is exciting and not well researched. I've slowed my writing on stocks due to the nature of my investment process. I look at earnings transcripts, do ratio analysis and sentiment analysis, and look at price action before I buy. These are often not enough to fill a detailed article like the ones I was writing and I would rather not publish weak pieces. I still hope to give my insights on equities occasionally (likely through blog posts), but will be moving to cover the CryptoSphere more. If you're interested in cryptocurrencies, even just to learn more, I hope you'll stick around!
I am a market enthusiast and part-time trader. I started writing for Seeking Alpha in 2011, and it has been a tremendous opportunity and learning experience. I have been interested in the markets since elementary school, and hope to pursue a career in the investment management industry. I have been active in the markets for several years, and am primarily focused on long/short equities. I hold a Bachelor of Science Degree from Lehigh University, where I double majored in Finance and Accounting, with a minor in History. My major track focused on Investments and Financial Analysis. While at Lehigh, I was the Head Portfolio Manager of the Investment Management Group, a student group that manages three portfolios, one long/short and two long only. I have had two internships, one a summer internship at a large bank, and another helping to manage the Lehigh University Endowment for nearly a year.

I'm the founder of Seeking Alpha. I led it for its first 10 years until 2015. Two years later, I returned to Seeking Alpha to run product, which is the aspect of my work as a founder I most loved. I started Seeking Alpha after working for five years as a technology research analyst for Morgan Stanley in New York. After I left, I wrote The ETF Investing Guide (which you can find by clicking on "Author's Picks" below), and some articles about individual stocks, and then started inviting other people to contribute to the website. Seeking Alpha is now the dominant crowdsourced platform for discussion of stocks and investing, and the only place with coverage of many mid and small cap stocks. I have a B.A from Oxford University and an MSc from The London School of Economics, and am married with five children.

My desire here on SA is to help people make money. Always grateful to help.
I despise corporate cronyism, lavish spending on executives, while they layoff the common man. I also despise the incest between Wall Street and the government. I think it is immoral.
