Prior to being the editor of Crisis and Opportunity, Christian DeHaemer worked for 14 years as a senior analyst with such publications as Crisis Trader, Red Zone Profits, The GRESSOR and Taipan. Over the years, he has traveled to Cuba, Egypt, India and Bulgaria, among other frontier markets, in search of ridiculously low values and massive upside. He bought numerous gold mining stocks in November 2007 when they were trading for less than cash and were completely unwanted. One gold stock is up 303% in seven months; all are up triple digits. DeHaemer likes to buy fear with a cool hand while others are selling in panic. He bought oil wildcatters when the price per barrel was plummeting into the $30s; he took profits a few months later when oil was pushing $80.
