Individual investor. Background in Investment Banking. Analyzing non-US income stocks for quality, value and sustainable dividend growth. The value of writing for SA (for me) is the discipline of forced objective research.This informs my decision making process. Once published, feedback from readers continues this process.
I am an individual investor and the author of seven eBooks on dividend growth investing. I try to help self-directed individual investors profit from stock investing. I contribute articles and studies to both Seeking Alpha and Daily Trade Alert. I hold an undergraduate degree in physics from Holy Cross College and a JD from Georgetown University. My wife Sue and I live in beautiful Canandaigua, NY.
I am an individual investor. My career was spent in various capacities in Information Technology. I retired near the end of 2010. My knowledge of investing has been acquired over the years primarily through reading, self study and making mistakes. In my retirement, I will live solely on the income from my investments and whatever Social Security I am able to collect, once I reach the eligibility age. Therefore, my investing objectives are income, capital preservation and modest growth, in that order.
