He's the CEO of Capital Market Labs.  Now… no one is going to accuse him of dumping his money on web design.  What LikeFolio really likes is the way he's focusing on some really interesting metrics…

One favorite is revenue per employee.  

Like this:

….and it's paying off.  

With 8400 twiiter followers, Ophir Gottlieb might be one of the most underrated personas in finance.

Want Proof?

Here's the 10 companies behind the products that he has tweeted about the most over the past 12 months, AKA The Ophir TOP TEN:

That's quite a list: Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), Facebook Inc (NASDAQ: FB), Google Inc (NASDAQ: GOOG), Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR), Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX),, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN), Alibaba Group Holding Ltd (NYSE: BABA), Yahoo! Inc (NASDAQ: YHOO), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ: MSFT), Gilead Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: GILD).

That basket of 10 stocks has 9 winners and just one loser (Alibaba) over the past 12 months.

Even better, the Ophir Top Ten returned a profit of over 34 percent for the past year, easily beating the S&P 500 (13.28 percent) and a vast majority of well-paid fund managers.  

Don't get too cocky, Ophir… Buzzfeed beat the market handily as well.

Investing doesn't have to be hard.  In fact, we believe it's best when it's kept simple.  Follow smart people that are looking at things from a different angle. Invest in the things you understand and like.  Find trends in social volume and ride them.  Have fun with it.  You're good at this!
