Retired 77 year old that still has some of his mental facilities. Worked for large corporation and , along with my family, started 3 profitable businesses. Likes Southern food, conservative thinking people, Las Vegas and enjoying my wife and family.
Still believe I can beat the market by playing options (did I say I like to gamble?). I don't waste my time with empty headed liberals. Despise crooked politicians that may destroy our country. Ronald Reagan, second after my dad, was my hero.
I am an attorney practicing in tax law. I work for and litigate income tax matters on behalf of a State government. I started building a retirement income portfolio in 2015 and focus primarily on dividend paying stocks. My time frame until retirement is approximately 2045.
I only buy long US dividend stocks in all sectors. I anchor my portfolio with Blue Chip stocks, but find I get the best return by investing a portion of my money in riskier stocks and do not have a problem with including MLPs, REITs, and BDCs if the financials look right to me.
Individual investor - with background in pharma, intellectual property, legal, regulatory, business and related strategic initiatives. President of PersisPharma LLC, since October 2014. PersisPharma is engaged in exploratory pharmaceutical research and related product development.
