The Left Shark of Financial Writing

Steve Kanaval |


I am a lot like the left shark in Katy Perry’s Super Bowl show. Like the now infamous dancing fish, I cannot keep time with the rest of the band – but what I do will be interesting to observe relative to everything around me – this I promise you.

Safe to Go Back in the Water

I look forward to writing for This is not my first rodeo, having spent 30+ years following US equities – and the last seven writing about them – I have much to say about market movements. The fact is, I needed a break from content production, as my articles seemed to run together after awhile. However, today I can honestly say that I am perfectly rested and ready to get back at it.

I’m prepared to bring you some insightful market analysis – sprinkled with humorous cultural observations. I want to thank's new CEO Enzo Villani for rattling my cage to get me back to writing, and for giving me this unique platform.

We will talk about Bitcoin and how the crypto-currency fits in the world of fiat currency. We will cover select Small and Micro-Cap stocks that are good stories with real management teams behind them, and we will listen to conference calls on Mid to Large-Cap companies where I ask the CEO/CFO’s questions they (most likely) won’t want to answer.

I look forward to all of it, so please reach out to me if you want a stock or story vetted for you. My team and I are glad to keep you up to date, but we will not give you any investment advice on when to buy or sell your stocks or currency – so if that’s what you’re looking for – you’re looking in the wrong place. However, if you are looking for the drivers behind the story, please don’t stop watching the shark on the left – it’s me in that silly blue shark suit, dancing out of step with the rest of the band…looking to get your attention and just being myself.
