The popularity of the SmallCap Network community reflects the insight and experience of its contributors. The analysts and journalists who provide the commentary for this website are also real traders and investors who live what they teach. Through their articles and ideas they strive to teach you how to get the most out of the market too, just like they have themselves.
All of our contributors are screened not just based on their personal ethical standards, but also for quality and commitment. Can they write meaningfully and clear, and will they do so consistently?
More than anything though, the main characteristic we require of our writers is a sincere desire to help other investors make more money in the stock market.
These high standards can make it challenging to find small cap commentators, but it’s worth the effort. Quality and results are everything when it comes to investing, so we insist on the very best when it comes to sharing commentary with our community’s members.
That said, one of the most compelling aspects about our community – and the reason we screen our writers so diligently – is that we don’t dictate what our contributors say, nor do we tell them how to say it. The editors reserve the right to make changes to commentary in order to improve clarity, and we may suggest or request article topics from time to time. However, our analysts’ ideas are truly unbiased and independent.
Do you think you have what it takes to be a SmallCap Network contributor? It’s not an easy challenge, but it’s definitely a rewarding one. You’ll have an opportunity to build a reputation within the community, teach others, and even learn from others. If you want to share your legitimate ideas and insights with other like-minded small cap traders, please contact us.
SmallCap Network Editorial Staff
Editor - Small Cap Network
James began his investment career as a broker with a prominent Wall Street firm. The core principles behind the advice he was dispensing as an adviser were diversifying, buying stocks with good fundamentals, and thinking long-term. Though the principles were sound, he soon realized they were incomplete in terms of generating and preserving his clients' wealth. He then moved on to become an analyst - and eventually the director of research - for a reputable subscription-based trading newsletter focused on technical analysis. As editor of the SmallCap Network newsletter, Brumley now follows both schools of thought in complementary ways. His philosophy is simply that fundamentals tell you which stocks to buy or sell and technical analysis tells you when to buy or sell them.
Bryan G. Murphy
Bryan Murphy is a veteran investment analyst and journalist. The early part of his career was spent as an equity analyst for two different research and brokerage houses. Recognizing that research opinions could be, and were, unfairly influenced by third parties, money, and financial politics, he began - on a part time basis - sharing his full and fair opinion of investment ideas and independent research of small companies... where bias and undue influence is far less common than with large cap companies. With his analytical background and ability to spot and explain compelling trading ideas, he soon found that his written commentary was far more helpful to investors than the Wall Street research mills were. He's now a full-time financial journalist, sharing investment ideas that the mainstream media (and therefore investors) overlook. You'll find most of his writing at the SmallCap Network.
