Seeking surplus value. I hold public equities that are disproportionately priced (on a risk/reward balance), generally with a several-year investment window. I'm a PhD-wielding, ex philosophy professor who has pivoted into a career doing market value appraisals of closely held businesses.
Retired, got bored, created own business, on-line internet retailer Part time investor, both long term investment and short term speculation. For the long term: believer in companies that grow their dividends over time. You hardly ever strike homeruns with that, but it sure makes the rough patches smoother when you get older. Closed the internet business in 2014 -- Amazon.com is too much competition for the mom and pop internet retailer.
