Canadian 'snow bird', wintering in our Venice, Florida home, with wife and dog, Turner. Close to retirement age, still running our own small family business in Canada. Gradually passing the reins over to my son to run. Have been investing since a teenager, mid and large cap, generally. Have made some stupid speculative trades in my time, and learned the lessons well. My investment strategy is to 'try' to time buying on weakness, good quality stocks that I would be willing to keep forever, aim for a 2% - 5% dividend yeilder, and not be afraid to sell out of the money covered calls to make a stealth dividend, aiming not to have the call exercised. Would be interested in participating in an investment group while wintering in Florida
I retired at an early age from IBM, as a System, Business and Inventory analyst and began investing over 30 years ago. I began the Struthers' Resource/Tech Stock Report just over 23 years ago by popular demand from colleagues. I started writing on Seeking Alpha about 1 year ago. Since that time I have suggested four stocks with an average gain of 187%. Please do not assume future picks will do that well, such as most recent - First Mining, Syrah Resources and Elcora Advanced Materials, although it is my intent!!!!
Retired engineer Worked at nuke plants and DOE sites. I have followed the market since I delivered newspapers in the 1960s. Despite decades of constant study, I still can't find the way to always having winners. SURPRISE! Is anyone interested in buying some stock certificates of long since disappeared penny stocks? I learned that lesson many years ago.
