Investment strategy

Private investor.  Conservative investment in relatively high risk instruments with high upside.  Prepared to take a number of heavy losses to hold the occasional star.  Ideal holding period is until probate but normally between 2 weeks and 3 years.

Enjoy the freedom of being able to deal on a whim but have generally done better doing some some analysis and basic research, focussed on reading published accounts, and trying to understand the fundamental proposition of the business.

Typically overweight in technology stocks, prefer if cash positive.
