Capt. Spaulding spent 35 years in the research vineyards of Wall Street, primarily as a financial writer and editor specializing in economics, equities, and technical analysis. During that time, he learned that several adages are well worth keeping in mind. One is, don't buy it if you don't understand it. Another: numbers can, and often do, lie. A third: if something seems too good to be true, it is. And for good measure: don't fight the tape, especially on the downside. Capt. Spaulding is retired, and enjoys the challenge of trying to keep his head while those around him are losing theirs.

I've been a casual equity investor for the last 10yrs but have had less than stellar success. Recently, I left my job of 13yrs to escape the NE for the mountains of CO with my wife. After a 4 month round-the-world trip and much introspection, I've decided to put a little more rigor around my investment practices. I enjoy reading about all matters of personal finance and economics and have recently added Dividend Growth Investing as a passion. While not a holy-grail, I feel putting more focus on dividend investing will force me to put the time into building a sound investment strategy based around more metrics and less emotion. The attention to detail and consistency in approach that many DGI investors on SA on other sites display also gives me more comfort that there will be intelligent like-minds to lean on as I season myself with the concepts.
I hope to contribute what I can to the community, as soon as a have research, tools, and/or opinions that might help others.
