I work for an international organization that focuses on economics, and I split my time between the USA and Nairobi, Kenya. I am an individual investor with a background in economics and finance, and I invest for my and a few other family members' accounts for retirement. I invest primarily for total return based on the fundamental valuation of a company relative to expectations of future growth, but through my experience I have found dividend growth stocks to be very attractive for their ability to deliver a rising stream of income that both cushions volatility and provides an excellent risk-adjusted total return.

Fifteen-plus years professional experience in securities markets has shown successful investing and surfing to be a lot alike. Predicting the waves means you're a quarter of the way there, but the real skill comes from riding the large swells when they hit.
In the end, in the words of Buffett & Munger, all intelligent investing is value investing; acquiring more that you're paying for. You must value the business in order to value the stock.
First off, I am continually amazed at the quality of people on SA and their deep analyses and facts. I enjoy the discussions and appreciate learning from others who have particularly keen insights into certain sectors (especially gold/silver, oil and gas, miners, and, increasingly, defensives).
Lately my specific interest has shifted from the energy sector to the mining sector, particularly precious metals. I have also two added Water Utilities lately and am have started looking at ERII. PCL is also intriguing to me if there's a pullback.
