I'm a self-directed investor who shares my experience in investing. I read, learn, and apply every day. I write about value & dividend investing from the perspective of a Canadian. I invest in individual stocks on the US stock exchanges and the Toronto Stock Exchange. As I write, I reflect on my own actions and results, which is an amazing exercise. I encourage individual investors who enjoy writing to try it. I appreciate the work done by SA staff & authors and love the community that engages in meaningful discussions.
Retired 59 year old engineer, with 3 decades of investing experience. Previously worked in the automotive industry for 35 years and the medical devices industry for 2. Married to the same fine wife since 1983, 2 adult daughters, live in Michigan.
By day, a business executive that is not too far away from retirement.
Been building a cash flow stream from dividends and wanted to see if I could AVERAGE a 6 dividend yield at the same time I get a total return that beats the market averages. All while not taking on too much risk.
Nothing is more enjoyable then getting cash dividends from my stocks to either reinvest or eventually live on.
I invest in all the stocks I write a it here on SA.
I enjoy spending time day trading and analyzing the market. I’m always looking for a good swing or day trade, but mostly I’m focused on finding stocks that will hit big and up-list from the OTC to the big boards. Basically, almost all of my portfolio is traded daily, especially considering I tend to look over multiple market segments for trades instead of spending all my time on one section. I’ve been analyzing and trading stocks for over 9 years now, and I have a strong understanding of trends, as well as the knowledge to make smart trades.
