I am a retired aerospace engineer. Most recently, I managed a hardware/software integration and simulation facility for a large multi-vehicle satellite program. I have been an occasional investor most of my life, but within the last 7-8 years, have become much more active.
I have my core positions in tech since I know that best, however, biotech/pharm seems to me another field poised to make quantum leaps forward with attendant potential gains for the correct picks.
I have been in and out of the stock market many times since the early eighties, each time moving my money into real estate. My background is with the wholesale and retail building supply industry giving me a inside look at such companies as GP and HD.
Current status working in sales for a Lead manufacturer which has given me a interest in the movement of commodities.
