Kevin Douglas: A super investor?

Following up on our post on The 400% Man, we now present Kevin Douglas who is profiled by Elliot Turner in his blog, Compounding My Interests. Douglas is the founder and chairman of Douglas Telecom in California, and has invested in IMAX, American Superconductor, Monster Beverages, Westport Innovations, Jos. A. Bank,, and SilverBirch Energy. He is a passive investor who identifies big secular trends, followed by a handful of companies that he believes will benefit from those trends. He takes large stakes in them, and sits tight for the long-term.

Here's Turner's analysis of  Douglas's incredible investment in Monster:
In Monster Beverages, formerly Hansen Natural Corporation, Mr. Douglas bought 329,719 shares at an average price of $0.58 between 2003 and 2004.  At today’s share price of $109.68 that represents a 92% CAGR, having turned around $190 thousand into a sum greater than $36 million
