Decided to leave SeekingAlpha. Signal to noise too high. When I point out something about an author's other employers and bias, comment removed for "personal attacks." When I point out that the author sold a stock or shorted and is now trying to regain credibility after a 25% run up, it is deleted for being "unsubstantiated" even though two others pointed out the same fact based in the author's own words. There is no way to defend ones comments, no way to sort through the writers who clearly are here as professional story tellers and resellers of public opinion with no basis in fact or new details, just regurgitated public opinion. Even the "currents" editors seem to have an agenda with bias dripping from the supposed news bulletins. The handful of true gems has become too hard to find, and without the ability for commenters to call authors on their facts and bias, or readers to simply ignore these contributors, I can't trust what I am reading here anymore.
I am a retired airline executive with legal and financial experience. I have a background in economics and finance with a focus on securities and securities analysis. I was in private practice for 10 years doing trial and appellate work prior to joining United Airlines where I did both transactions and litigation. I was with United for over 29 years, the last 17 as Assistant General Counsel. I now am a self directed investor, seeking to create cash flow to supplement our pensions and social security. I take a long term view focusing on securities that create a steady cash flow.
I am a financial executive in the real estate industry interested in all types of wealth building systems, especially cash flowing investments like dividend stocks, option selling, MLPs, and income CEFs.
Been investing since the 1980s but mostly in Mutual Funds, a few Corporate Bonds, and some growth and value stocks. New to dividend investing (its a total different world). Learned more from SA articles and comments since June than I thought possible.
Retired from SLB after 44 years in Seismic Data Processing and some Data Collection field work. Investing focus on
1) energy related companies related to Bakken, Permian Basin, Eagle Ford and Niobrara.
2) also undervalued dividend and safe growth stocks

I want to invest in companies with a safe and growing dividend. Earnings and revenue growth drive dividend growth. I will take on risk with an occasional micro or small cap with good prospects.
Companies I am considering;
PGH, NLY, AT, CTL, CAT, CMI, BP, SO, MMP, MSFT, AFL, PEP, KMB, GEVO
