Educated as EE, BS, MS, PhD. Worked in Corporate reseach for a large company. Life Fellow, IEEE, 9 patents. Interested in Seeking Alpha to gain access to diversified opinions on investment in my retirement.
Over 10 years of investing experience, I use dividend reinvestment to accumulate stocks. I view myself as a Long-Long investor, very rarely (if ever) making short term trades.
Most influential on my strategy is the book "Winning on Wall Street" By Martin Zweig, although several of the indicators Mr. Zweig used I have tailored or replaced with my own or available metrics.
I consider myself an independant Buy-Side Analyst.
In distribution phase. Interested in CEFs (esp buy-writes), MLPs (ouch) and Munis for their tax favored distributions in my taxable account. My belief in alternative investments (eg long-short) hasn't been rewarded by good returns, but I continue to explore alternatives (eg EFFE). I find the simple dynamic asset allocation strategies, eg TLT-SPY, quite compelling and may move in that direction. Have been working on backtesting software to explore various ideas.
I have been handing the family portfolios since 1991. Being an expert poker player has helped me maintain a clear, concise and unemotional approach to the dynamic world of investing. Investing in stocks, ETF's and mutual funds for over 22 years has given me the experience to refine my approach to the point where my downside risk is generally lower than the norm. I am also a professional musician.
