Bio for James J. Valentine, CFA
James Valentine, CFA, started his career as an equity research analyst., The major North American investor polls ranked him among the top three in his sector for ten consecutive years and Forbes identified him, as one of the top three among all 2,000 U.S. sell-side analysts. At the height of his career as an analyst, he was asked to take on a newly-created role as Director of Training for Morgan Stanley's Global Research department. After implementing a new global training program for 500 analysts and associates, he realized far too many buy-side and sell-side analysts were approaching this profession without a strategy, which held them back from generating alpha. To remedy this, he began his independent effort by writing the top-selling book "Best Practices for Equity Research Analysts" and then founded AnalystSolutions, to help all active and prospective analysts to improve their stock picking and receive greater recognition for those calls. In 2015, he was initially asked to teach an investments class at DePaul University, which eventually led him join the Finance Department as a Clinical Professor and as the Executive Director of the Center for Behavioral Finance.
