Our organization was founded on the success of a biotech stock that provided the genesis for the investment organization, and the opportunity that has given many the funds needed to delve into other biotech discovered opportunities. The organization acts on a voluntary basis in a sense that each member manages their own personal investment fund. But as a collective group, the group makes intuitive decisions based on collective knowledge and information. Those with the insight to make the right moves now have the funds needed to move on other companies in similar positions. From this group, and frustration with how certain message site managers tried to control peoples thinking by eliminating thoughts unlike their own, a group was born whose function was to search for other opportunities with as much or more potential to explode in the manner of our first original biotech stock. This was the birth of our biotech investment group.
We attribute our success to the dynamic, collective, and collaborative environment. Though this organization has only 13 members, we have been consistently beating Wall Street and outperforming the S&P by 25%.
During my course study at UC Berkeley, I helped founded an investment club and serve as the board manager. Living in an eco-system where the first U.S. biotech industry was born (SF Bay Area), I sensed in my blood that a new golden age of biotech was creeping up early 2009. With no medical and biotech knowledge, I started developing a network of friends, students, and investors in this arena. I was very fortunate to stumble across many knowledgable people in the field. I met several key investors that shared similiar ideas for our first biotech stock.
Through statistical projections and the collaborations of community, we were able to out-smart Wall-Street. While investors were terrified, scrambling, and selling a key biotech stock shares in the 52 week low, the our group accumulated based on our own statistical analysis and due deligence. Then came April 2009. The company took major media headlines with positive drug trial results! The stock was halted and shot up! With the new found wealth, we official formed the biotech investment club. This club acts on a voluntary basis. We depend on each other to properly evaluate a stock. Duties include and not limited to attending presentations, researching medical journals, dissecting financials, and simply pounding the investor’s rep with questions.
We keep the passion alive by telling jokes and help each other by giving advice on daily personal issues. We became friends and one family who were once lost in the finance world controlled by Wall-Street. We have made believers of the many skeptics out there. Receiving compliment such as "this must be a good opportunity as I see the biotech club are here", or "before joining the club, my fidelity account was a mess, I never thought I could win in stock trading, thank you guys. It is such gratifying responses as these that our grup feel that we have transformed lives in many ways.
This organization structures works for us as it is dynamic, nimble, creative, and everyone acts on the interest of the gruop at the same time benefiting their personal self-interest of a success investing experience.
This is when our investment club was born. Our group was born whose function was to search for other opportunities with as much or more potential to explode in the manner of our first original biotech stock while navigating the complexity and the financial market systems.
Our goal was to outsmart wallstreet and beat them at their very own games.
