I am individual investor that has been investing for his retirement for the past 40 years. During that time I have had great successes and great losses but with each win and loss I have learned something about the market and the stock I own. I do not invest for a living as my real job is as a full time Plant Manager at a local manufacturing company that makes consumer products that ship worldwide. Investing is a serious hobby for me and I spend a lot of free time doing it. I know that my wife of 34 years would say that I spend to much time at it but we will both have the opportunity to appreciate my efforts in the years ahead.
Started investing in 2007 by means of mutual funds. It was 2014 when I finally arrived to the conclusion that there must be a better way of investing than using mutual funds, so I started buying individual stocks. It did not help at all that oil crashed almost immediately after I restructured my portfolio. I am still recuperating since then, and try to stay optimistic. In the meantime I learned a lot about the stock market and investing (mainly due to SA), and hope for my portfolio to show some good gains sometime down the road.
Value - GARP guy. Prefer small companies but won't pass up a whale, at least not when it comes to stocks.. Emigre from So. Calif. to Raleigh, NC.where I've found nothing but courteous, considerate people & lots of natural beauty. Great alternative to the golden state that lost its way...
