What was your first job and how did you become interested in investing?

I began as an auditor for an accounting firm. Interestingly, I was able to get exposure to many different industries through this position, which triggered my interest towards analyzing companies. I started with investing in resource stocks and mutual funds back during an up-cycle in metals. I did extremely well and was instantly hooked.

What is your most memorable moment in your investing career thus far?

My most memorable moment in my investing career has to be going through the 1999 bull run and watching the subsequent meltdown. Having seen what happened then, I instantly recognized the opportunity for investors to buy on weakness following the 2008 credit meltdown that crushed the stock market.

What is your investing mantra?

Bottom up. I look at companies rather than a sector and I always combine fundamental research with technical analysis to get the full picture before I invest.

If you have noticed, there is an uprising in the number of activist investors looking to dictate the strategic directions of troubled companies.

Short Selling Has Beaten Down These Stocks Short selling provides a counterbalance to the integrity of the stock market, but sometimes, when the selling is too extreme, it also works to provide an anchor for the long side to help drive up stocks. As a trader, it is…

This Is Big for Valeant Stock These are tough times for hedge fund manager Bill Ackman of Pershing Square Capital Management after the once most coveted hedge fund lost about 15% in 2015, driven by massive losses in Valeant Pharmaceuticals Intl Inc (NYSE:VRX) stock and Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF)…

The stock market is attracting an appetite for higher-beta small-cap stocks again following massive selling capitulation in January that saw the Russell 2000 freefall as far as 26% from its high in 2015. The renewed pursuit for beta when it comes to stock market investing has been great…

Little Upside for Oil Prices Don’t be fooled by the rally in oil prices. The underlying fundamentals for the oil sector remain bearish—unless you believe demand is suddenly going to surge and oil production will be drastically slashed around the world... I don’t like oil as an investment…

Folks, we are clearly operating in a bear market mentality, but the world is not going to end and there will be better times ahead. It will likely worsen before improving, but the extreme selling in the big banks and domestically are overdone in my view. It’s true…
