Alex Pitti

Although I may seem young, I have actually been investing on my own since 2007 as a 14 year old. I like to focus on stocks that are unloved at the moment, but have solid long term growth prospects. I write for Seeking Alpha and invest on Instavest where you can copy my trades. I have 705 followers and 600,000 views on Seeking Alpha. I also have a YouTube channel which features skits and informational videos.
