Investing Expertise

My Area of Expertise:
I work toward steady profits using long-term stocks, strategic options, ETFs, shorts/hedges. The goal is compounding long-term stock value, steady option income, help from hedges and shorts during downturns, and overall strong returns with less volatility -- driven most by owning competitively-advantaged businesses with compounding free cash flow and a strong re-investment track record.
Greatest Investment:
My time.
Worst Investment:
My time.
