James "Rev Shark" DePorre
James "Rev Shark" DePorre started his career as an attorney and CPA before teaching himself stock trading after becoming totally deaf. He is the founder of Shark Investing, an educational website that evolved from the first internet chat rooms dedicated to stocks on AOL in the 1990s. DePorre is also CEO of Hammerhead Strategies, LLC, which offers money management services to select clients. DePorre is one of TheStreet Real Money’s most beloved contributors since 2011.
He is the author of “Shark Investing: How a Deaf Guy with No Job and Limited Capital Made a Fortune Investing in the Stock Market.” DePorre is most proud of how many people he has helped develop an approach to the stock market that allows them to earn lifelong income from trading.
As an aggressive trader that believes small, individual traders and investors have unique advantages that allow them to produce exceptional market returns with discipline and hard work, DePorre specializes in trending market coverage. When he’s not writing financial content, DePorre can be found driving his tractor in North Carolina or attending his kids’ piano concerts.
