Languages at least one of us is somewhat familiar with.
English, French, German, Korean, Latin, Spanish.
Subjects at least one of us has studied at a university level.
economics, mathematics, physics.
I am sure "we" are familiar with more languages and have studied more subjects at a university and might a few of us might be PhDs, who knows ...
I think we have an average age of around 30.
and might a
at least one of us has OCD ...

countries aloou has spent more than 2 months in.
Belgium, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, USA.
countries aloou has spent more than 2 minutes in (outside a "plane or boat").
Austria, Belgium, Canada, Croatia, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, México, Morocco, Netherlands, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland, UK, USA, Vatican.
okay, not sure about Croatia ...
If only one of us has OCD, I will be surprised.
You should add Portuguese to your list of languages and biological engineering, biosystems engineering and finance to your list of subjects at a university level.
I think the median age is about 30, but the average is a little eschewed because of the guy with "25 years of investing experience" (unless he started when he was 5......)
I suspect that we all have fairly different investing strategies. It will be interesting to see what sort of portfolio this yields.

countries aloou has spent more than 2 minutes:
+ Brazil (aloou needs to do more traveling)
I've spent 4+ years in South Korea and majored in electrical engineering.
PhD in common sense and 25 years of stock trading and learning. Sorry boys, no college degree. I am the dumb one. LOL
41 years old. Quit college to start an investment advisory business and stock market newsletter in early 1990s. Two brothers began something called the Motley Fool newsletter about the same time.
I was widely quoted in the national media including: CNBC, Investor's Business Daily and Barrons back then for my original thinking and strong stock picking performance. Cover of Timer Digest, etc. etc. Quit the business in late-1990s as Tech Boom was destined to bust and create a weak stock market span for a decade or two. Why would I want to help investors earn the same or worse returns than cash, and waste my energy and time doing that?
Oh well, now I play games on Gardner brother website.
Extremely independent thinker, straight shooter, honor and chivalry mean more to me than money. Rare combination I suppose. Favorite color is RED. Aquarias, sorry girls reading this, already happily married with a terrific daughter. Willing to work on a team, given the right conditions.
I have been to Hawaii, Texas, California and Disney World in Florida (having visited most every state in the union). They should definitely count as foreign nation visits. California seemed more foreign than the rest!
Do you need any help from me? I’ve traveled extensively and have an M.A. in English and a law degree from a top law school (law review writer/editor) and practiced tax law (briefly) and transactional law (too long). Previously married to a Wall Street analyst (co-collaborated on financial matters and investments), I’ve lived and breathed the market but am somewhat of a stock novice (about a year). I’ve got plenty of time and energy to obsess about the stock market and manage my own accounts. OCD, for sure. I’d be happy to help but am more of a team player than a solo operator.
Nice gain today on the 6-man bobsled team, on account of the big push by portefeuille's biotech winners, just before he jumped into the sled.
With the earnings announcemtn for Gamestop next week I am thinking now might be a good time to buy a position. I suspect to see a 15-20% increase within the next 2 weeks. I am 90% sure they are going to beat expectations, but will they be rewarded for it? Or will digital media fears keep the price depressed?
(I actually visited a gamestop yesterday and helped fund their earnings growth... While there I asked the cashier how busy they have been, he said its going to be a very good year for game sales).
I'm beginning to think that I will provide almost 80% of the short exposure for our hedge fund =)
I sold several of my positions in the fund to open up some more room in the portfolio for others. Which means I decided against my move into GME, which means we missed its 9% gain so far today. For the record, I own this one in real life and I suspect in the next few months we will learn they are being sold for about $30/share...
I have 9 long positions and 7 short positions so far. I'll stay somewhat close to neutral hopefully as we move forward.
my "current positions" are shown in comment #11 here.
This might be "good news" for my ALNY and RXII position and a few other of the biopharmaceuticals positions ...
Evidence of RNAi in humans from systemically administered siRNA via targeted nanoparticles
one participant less for the tigerpack fund thing. I am no longer participating.
I will keep tracking my positions here.
The "fund" is in the green by around 36% currently (see this post).
Now in the green by around 85% currently (see this post).
