Old investor that keeps stocks for a long time. Some of my stocks have been in my portfolio for over 30 years. My latest investments were CVX and CAT. I loved Peter Lynch's comment, if you don't understand their business don't invest in their stock. My worst investment was Lucent, and I didn't understand their business. My best stock has been XOM, MMM, MCD, etc.
I am 64 and I am an active Trader in the Equity and Option markets. I bought my first shares of stock (4 shares of VMC) at age 10. I have and continue to use a combination of both Fundamental and Technical analysis. I specialize with Pivot Points & Technical Analysis Crossovers.

Our trading approach starts with the fundamentals, then through short-term technical analysis, to finally leverage options trading (with the combination of long and short positions) to achieve favorable risk and reward ratio trading plays.
Our main strategy is "Solid Stock + Cash Flow + Options"
"I have the option to give up, but I will never give up my options"
