My name is Mark and I have been investing in stocks since 2001. I hold a B.A. in History from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. I am also a member of the American Association of Individual Investors.

I am a contrarian value investor with an emphasis on fundamentals. I am also a discretionary momentum trader. I don't shy away from small and micro-cap stocks aka penny stocks because often Benjamin Graham cigar-butts aka Net-Net's which are typically small companies present some of the greatest values.

Stock Pursuit is read by many professionals in the money management industry. This blog is very unique not only because it is a blog on deep asset value stocks but because I cover many other things including commodities and futures, momentum trading, technical analysis and stock market commentary.

In the upper right corner of the site there is a search box where you can type in ticker symbols and words. Just hit enter to search.

Because of its excellence, my work has appeared on Dow Jones Marketwatch, TheStreet.com, SeekingAlpha.com, CapitalIdeasOnline.com, ValueInvesting News.com and CollegeAnalysts.com. Welcome to Stock Pursuit.
