Who is behind Canadian Value Investors?

It’s been a while since I’ve posted anything from my little investigations, and I guess it’s time to fix that.
So, Canadian Value Investors, aka CVI Club, I’ve been following their blog for some time and enjoyed it a lot, but at some point, they started to move pretty much all their posts behind a paywall.
Boo-hoo! 😀

Who is TheLastBearStanding?

My rule of thumb in those little Internet investigations is it should be fun. If I can’t find anything useful/interesting in 2-3 hours, I just give up.
In case of TheLastBearStanding TheLastBearStanding I was able to find the person hiding behind this account.
While doing my research I was able to discover a vulnerability in my own blog! 😮 Those who know how to exploit it can get access to password-protected and even private posts.
I hope the content of my posts was not exposed and I’ve fixed the problem now.
Unless there are more bugs…

Yes, about TheLastBearStanding. I believe, he has a degree in Accounting and Finance, is(was?) a Vice President at an investment management firm and lives in New York City. He seems like a good guy, a bit bearish though… 😀

Doomberg, not again!

It’s like a wave of visitors coming to my blog each time Doomberg releases another post.
I mean, usually I have ~1½ visitor a day, so the wave is like 20+ a day. LOL 😀
A question to those trying “password”, “letmein”, “doomberg”, etc. as a password here, are you serious???

To satisfy everyone else’s curiosity:
Doomberg is a team of 2+ people;
– one woman, one man;
– colleagues from work, not working there anymore;
– this work place is, let’s say, energy/plastics/chemicals related;
– one is Canadian, another one is American, both live in the States;
– one has MBA, another one has degree in chemistry;
– they have other Twitter account(s).

DISCLAIMER: Not an investment advice! 🙂 I might be wrong in anything and in everything written above and below. I’m doing it for fun and hope you enjoy!

Who is Deep Throat IPO?

It was fun to do some Internet “investigations” recently, so after I’ve stumbled upon another “anonymous” twitter account, I’ve decided to give it a try.
Took me like 15 minutes to figure out who is behind @DeepThroatIPO, but I must admit this guy didn’t try hard to hide his identity.
I’m sorry if my post will cause some trouble, I mean no harm and am doing this purely for fun and out of curiosity.

Protected: Who is Doomberg? Part 2

I wasn't planning to write about this again, but Doomberg's anonymity is in perils. 😀
Luck is no longer required to figure out who Doomberg is, some basic computer skills and time will do the trick.
I was also able to uncover another person and twitter accounts involved as well as correct some inaccuracies from my previous post on Doomberg.

RESULTS: Doomberg, not again!

Protected: Most insightful chicken on social media. Who is behind Doomberg?

With a bit of luck and a couple of hours of Internet search I've found who's hiding behind the green chicken logo and Doomberg's name on FinTwit.
The whole "investigation" was fun and quite easy to accomplish thanks to small mistake made by Doomberg.
Staying anonymous on the Internet is harder than one might think.
Anyway, I will keep this post password protected for now and see how it goes...
