My Story

Inculcated into the finance fold as a child by his value-investor father (who achieved millionaire status through his stock investments), Robert "Izzy" Izquierdo has followed, bought, and sold stocks for decades. As a technologist who has worked at large Silicon Valley tech companies to cutting-edge startups, Izzy pursues his dual passions as digital media domain expert by day, and Wall Street wanderer by night. Born from this seeming dichotomy is Izzy's focus on tech industry stocks, which have resulted in gains of 368% (Yelp), 253% (LinkedIn), and 227% (Yahoo), among others.

How I Invest

I was raised to be a value investor with a critical eye toward cash flow, P/E, dividend percentage, etc. But over time, and especially in our new digital millennium, I've come to realize there's a lot more to a company than cold, hard numbers. Having seen storied companies like Eastman Kodak evaporate from our collective consciousness while, at the same time, building successful digital products myself, I've come to approach stocks with an eye toward how a company's products and services meet the needs of our connected consumers today and in the future. That's the true value of a 21st century company.
