Value oriented and special situations investors, with interest across the capital structure.
"Our greatest power is that we know we don’t know everything and we are open to being wrong and learning” - Ray Dalio
I am 49 years old, and self-employed in the construction industry.
I have an advisor who manages half of my money, and the other half I invest on my own. My investments are primarily in low-cost index ETFs, but about 15% of my funds I invest in individual equities - typically out-of-favor dividend equities that have solid fundamentals and growth potential. My favorite strategy is to sell enough shares of an equity to get my original investment back, and let the "free" shares ride.
I am a value investor to the greatest extent possible. I also favor dividend stocks. I try to be a buy-and-hold investor, but sometimes I can't avoid the tempation to ring the register or to accumulate the inevitable tax loss. The main thing I have learned is that I have lost more money by selling too soon than for any other reason. I reside in Henderson, NV.
