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.
