A retired scientist, I have long had an interest in investing. In addition to stocks, I currently trade options actively for our own accounts. I read extensively and use my technical background to evaluate technology companies. I am an optimist about the U.S. market and economy, believing that the power of innovation and entrepreneurship in this great country is currently being overshadowed in the public's mind by recency bias, i.e. the memory of the financial crisis is too strong.
