I am a IT Professional with a bachelors degree in Computer Science. I am not some multimillionaire (although I hope to be one day) I am an average everyday working person who decided to step out on his own and I want to encourage others to do the same. My investment profile closely resembles that of a Dividend Growth Investor with a bit of Value Investor mixed in.
I'm a Peter Lynch guy. I try to keep it simple, and "buy what I know." I regularly read Seeking Alpha, and comment far less than I read. I find significant value in the discourse that arises out of the articles. I used to post under "Tucker Kirk," but somehow "got lost" when I changed computers, which probably means I am not much of a computer whiz! I posted and predicted frequently on Motley Fool under the name "tuckman52." However, I now use SA almost exclusively as the starting point for all my research. I also invest in rental real estate, and have for many years. (Same for stocks.)
