I am a buy and hold common stock investor. Warren Buffett is definitely my guru. He makes the most sense to me. I began investing in the stock market at age 14 in 1970 with money earned on my paper route. What I have done since 1970 is invest primarily in the Dividend Aristocrats whenever the stock market is relatively low. I have never sold a single share of stock except on the rare occasion when one of my stocks was bought out for cash and I was forced to sell.. I keep all of my stock certificates or direct registration statements in a safe deposit box at the bank. I do not automatically reinvest dividends. I only purchase stocks when I feel that the stock market is relatively low. Brown University, B. A., 1978. Below are the 35 stocks in my portfolio.
I've been contributing to SA since 2011, with a break to join the PRO editorial team from 2013-2015. I got my Series 7 and 63 back in 2000, and watched the dot-com bubble peak and then burst in real time at a small, tech-focused retail brokerage in NYC.
Peter E. Greulich spent thirty years at IBM as a salesman, brand manager, worldwide product/market manager and sales instructor. He’s interviewed thousands of IBMers worldwide—from the United States to China, Canada to Brazil, and Australia to Scandinavia.
The themes in his writings reflect these discussions, his own corporate experiences, and a five-year journey to understand Thomas J. Watson Sr.’s leadership—a guiding force, that in the face of nine recessions, the Great Depression and four of the six steepest U.S. stock market declines, created one of the 20th Century’s greatest corporations.
His writings include:
- The World’s Greatest Salesman: An IBM Caretaker’s Perspective: Looking Back
- A View from Beneath the Dancing Elephant: Rediscovering IBM’s Corporate Constitution
Value investors for 14 years. Have been in portfolio management for 5 years, running a long/short valued fund for qualified investors. Specialized in technology, internet, communications, energy/oil, and Chinese companies.
Twenty-five years experience as a long term buy & hold investor of dividend paying multinationals, always re-investing the dividends. I also like to sell cash secured Puts on those Mega Caps that have taken a hit of 15% or more. If I do not get Put the stock, I'll roll into the next 30 to 90 day window, depending on the premiums I can collect on the cash secured puts. I do like to then sell 30 to 90 day out-of-the money calls on those stocks that finally get put to me. This provides extra yield and since 85%+ of options expire worthless, I rarely get called out. I will take directional speculative bets on smaller cap stocks that I have followed for a minimum of four financial reporting quarters, but never more than 3% of the total portfolio.
I have been working in share analysis, stock picking for over 20 years and reside in Australia. I have found a particular interest in micro-cap software companies domestically, and I have recently started to look further ashore in a personal investment capacity. I plan to review a few interesting US micro-cap software names over the next few months.
