Peter George Psaras A.K.A “Mycroft” has been researching and investing in the stock
market since the age of 10. He was introduced to the markets by his uncle Andrew Tsiropinas. His uncle would tell him stories about
his investing in Coca-Cola in 1934 and why tobacco companies were the
greatest investments over the last century, as it cost them so little to make their products, resulting in huge profit margins.
He was instrumental in helping
Mycroft get started in investing , by introducing him to Exxon in 1974, during the oil embargo. From
there he taught him the power of compounding.
Mycroft has spent most of his life as an equity analyst
studying the works of the masters. He is
an expert in Qualitative and well as Quantitative investing and lives by the
motto of “Capital Appreciation through Capital Preservation”. He has worked as an advisor for friends and
family and worked for The Motley Fool Organization for a while. Prior to opening Mycroft Research LLC. he spent the last decade writing
investment newsletters and providing research to a large following of clients.
From his work on free cash flow in the investment process, Mycroft has now decided to bring his theories to the field of money management as well as work as an independent consultant for Hedge Funds, Pension Funds and Institutions in general. His dream is to someday soon open a mutual fund where he can help as many people as he can benefit from what he has learned over the years.
Mycroft was born on March 23, 1964 in Sleepy Hollow, New York. He went through the Briarcliff Manor school system and is a graduate of Marist College, which is in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. . He lives with his wife and their three pugs and five cats in Fonda, New York. Mycroft is an avid traveler and enjoys bodybuilding as his exercise routine. He is a voracious reader in history, literature, the classics and philosophy and got his nickname “Mycroft” from being an avid fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s master private consulting detective, Sherlock Holmes. Mycroft was the older brother of Sherlock and was supposed to be smarter at detection than his younger brother, but was unfortunately quite sedentary by nature and spent all his time working from his desk for the UK government as a 19th century human version of Google. All government agencies reported to him.
