For a description of Reggie see below:
Reggie Middleton is a non-conformist, outside the box, "free-thinking maverick" when it comes to investment and analysis, which helps him make money while the Wall Street herd stampedes in fear.
Middleton works in his home, builds his own research and reporting technology and does all his own analysis. The personal approach to investing is critical to success.
Since being right puts food on Middleton's table, he's more invested in his research than anyone else. It's the investing, not selling research gathered in an echo chamber, that consumes his energy.
With so much at stake, Middleton can't rely on other firms to research where he should put his family's money. So he employs his own team of analysts and forensic accountants.
This independence means Middleton doesn't have to please editors, bankers, clients or shareholders. It's also why his research is so valuable to the hedge fund and pension managers, commercial bankers and others who subscribe to it.
In addition to allowing Middleton to cultivate an interest in new media, publishing research online generates feedback from readers around the globe.
By complementing his own work with online global feedback, Middleton has created a living, evolving body of work much in the same way open- source programmers develop software.
Despite his low personal profile, Middleton's work is being noticed well beyond the boundaries of his subscriber base.
Analysis that foresaw the downfall of firms such as General Growth Properties months before management even acknowledged a problem helped get Middleton coverage from the online financial news service Marketwatch and prominent play in New York and Las Vegas newspapers.
The jump to mainstream media was no surprise considering Middleton's investment record far outpaces so-called "experts" on national cable news and his ability to break down complex financial news in terms anyone can understand.
