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.
I have been investing since late 2005. Interested in high yield stocks, options, E&P names, and financials
Currently work as a commercial real estate appraiser. Graduated Rutgers University in 2009 with a degree in Economics and completed my MBA at Rutgers Business School in 2015.
Started investing in 2007 by means of mutual funds. It was 2014 when I finally arrived to the conclusion that there must be a better way of investing than using mutual funds, so I started buying individual stocks. It did not help at all that oil crashed almost immediately after I restructured my portfolio. I am still recuperating since then, and try to stay optimistic. In the meantime I learned a lot about the stock market and investing (mainly due to SA), and hope for my portfolio to show some good gains sometime down the road.
