"Research, Analyze, Collaborate, Venture"

It is with much excitement that I welcome you to my site! My four self-explanatory principles--research, analyze, collaborate, and venture--will govern how I interact with readers, investors, and potential business partners.

My name is David Gould, founder of M&A and activist research group The Takeover Analyst. I started this website to provide low-cost (often free) equity research to investors, but also largely to communicate with potential business partners interested in relevant areas.

My experience includes work in investment management consulting and sell-side research, an academic background specialized in takeovers and shareholder activism, and a network in ventures and clubs. I am a contributor to Seeking Alpha, where I publish research related to this focus.
