ABOUT
I buy established, good companies with strong management, solid balance sheets, free cash flow, growing earnings, and increasing dividends. This is a long strategy, which buys value situations, combining the fundamentals of Growth at a Reasonable Price, with Dividend Growth Investing. This style has been coined as "I-GARP" by Clay King.

To further reduce my risk and enhance my returns, I enter positions using secured puts, and when assigned, sell covered calls. I practice Teddi Knight's strategy of using option premium capital to build positions, and use technical analysis to enter trades, as practiced by Teddi and Dr. Samir Elias.
