Now retired. I was a Health and Physical Education Major(College of New Jersey) and a USN Vietnam Veteran 1968-69. I have been investing in equities since 2004 and have found that I have had much more success without the "help" of a broker. I would like to add that I have been on SA for about eight or nine years and found some great people to learn from, I am retired, love the Philadelphia Flyers and Eagles too, but learning about how the markets work, in order to invest successfully, is my true hobby.
My father founded an extremely successful Investment Management firm in 1969. He has taught me a great deal about investing in stocks and how to look at companies. I have a considerable amount of expertise using computers and compose music using a Yamaha MO8 synthesizer.
