Husband, father of three, grandfather of three and long time investor. Bought my first stock at 16 years old, it was called Unishops and it went bankrupt. I kept on investing and now have a decent size portfolio. Best investing book I ever read was "The Future for Investors" by Jeremy Siegel. I believe in companies that pay dividends, have strong cash flow and have some type of moat.
Stocks, economics, and digging into what companies do is fun. It's what I think about during the commute and have to put on hold until the ride home. If I can invest and barbecue in the same day, then that's quite a day.
