i spent my academic career as a physicist; and my working career as a business analyst for commercial banks - particularly in the field of credit and lending.
i've spent a considerable time trying to decide if i as an investor or trader; and even more time trying to impose discipline in my stock related activities.
i have a membership in AAII and use folioFN.
i have tried to use several portfolio analysis tools, to evaluate risk and return, the one from Quantext more than once.
and, i am still in search of an excel based trading log and a portfolio tracking tool to give me a better sense of feedback on my good and bad decisions.
aside from that, retirement is not too far down the road, so i'd better get this right pretty soon.
I am going to write about public market investing ideas.
All asset classes welcome, but it will likely be predominantly equities.
I will try to be concise and stick to factual analysis to get to the truth.
Discussion focusing on the investment case are highly welcome.
The frequency of posts will depend on how many ideas I find interesting / whether I have time to post. I accept no obligation to update historical posts with new information. I reserve the right to deal in discussed ideas without notification. Do your own work.
I am a keen dividend growth investor with a new found passion in the stock market and buying income on sale. Although a fan of the lower risk DGI method, I am all in for financial freedom and attempting to retire by 30. I am therefore willing to take on more risk to get there and I am now investing into higher yield stocks predominantly MReits, BDCS and Reits. I firmly believe that this approach will get me there faster alongside investing in undervalued dividend growth stocks that will compound better in the long run. I am looking at a complete 50/50 split of DGI growth stocks for stability and 50% high yield alternatives.
