Mitchell Manoff has over 35 years of experience as a money manager. He is the co-founder and CEO of the New York based investment bank/asset management firm Corinthian Partners which is celebrating their 16th anniversary, quite an accomplishment. Prior to his founding the firm he spent 14 years as a Senior Vice President at Lehman Brothers. His customers for whom he manages money include institutions, family offices and select high net worth individuals. He works closely with these groups on both taxable and retirement issues and is very concerned about the lack of preparation which many baby boomers have concerning retirement. Each of the portfolios that Mr. Manoff’s creates is tailored to the customers objectives and risk tolerances. His investment style is to have a majority of high yielding equities, who have a history of raising their dividends, while growing earnings. This style can be described as a hybrid dividend/growth. Three investment sectors which look particularly attractive are MLPs, REITS and select multinational companies. In addition to his duties running Corinthian Partners, he has also helped finance and develop many companies in industries ranging from internet content, telecommunication and energy companies. He also has taught Entrepreneurship and Venture Finance at Baruch College of the City of New York. He has also served as a mentor at the IBM SmartCamp and as a guest lecturer at Baruch College’s- China Business Summit. Having worked to develop early stage companies and as the founder of a successful financial service company provides a level of insight not often found with money managers. Mr. Manoff has a B.S. in B.A from Boston University and an M.B.A. from Baruch College of the City of New York.

I am a mathematics professor and try not to let that get in the way of making intelligent investment decisions. I am currently constructing a dividend growth portfolio with the goal of creating an income stream that grows at or better than inflation.
I and my wife own and operate a popular seasonal pet friendly waterfront cottage resort in Northern Ontario Canada in the summer called Sunny Point Resort, Cottages & Inn. In the winter we become the tourists at our Fort Myers villa.
Up until 2011 we owned 10 properties with 37 apartments and a Val-Pak advertising franchise for 25 years until 2008.
My business experience is similar to how I invest. I buy quality names for income. Appreciation happens. When the market values decline, my rents from good quality screened tenants always came in and when business conditions suffered my vast array of clients and premium advertising product continued to generate excellent income while inferior advertising businesses failed and declined.
I eliminated financial planners when I figured out that 1, the returns they generated were substandard, that 2, as one accumulates more and more money there are less "professionals" to give sound advice and 3, I realized after reading Josh Peters The Ultimate Dividend Investors Handbook that he was buying and holding stocks like I was buying and managing my apartments.
Retired investor. Like dividend stocks, as someday I will need the dividends to meet expenses.
Took a very large hit on our investments in 1973 due to the oil crisis. Am somewhat cautious, but also have a gunslinger investing mentality. While I have some stocks that yield 3 - 4%; like 5+ I try to invest in solid companies that return 5% or more. U.S., Europe, and South American companies have more appeal for me than those in other areas.
I hope to retire soon. ETA is now September 1, 2013.
Oops, I didn't make it. My contract got extended. Let's go with January, 2014.
Oops, missed again. Try Fall 2015.
I started trading stocks (and investing?) just since May of 2011, and I love it.
This is what I want to do when I grow up.
I'm panicked now (September, 2013) because I still don't take any of this seriously.
I do things for the stupidest reasons.
As of Summer 2015, I'm into selling options; mostly puts, put spreads, and recently iron condors.
Vice President of Operations/Engineering at a Private Equity owned manufacturing company in New England. I hold a BS in Electrical Engineering, an MBA, and studied Operations at MIT under their Executive Certificate Program. I am trying to grow a personal "Buy and Hold" portfolio of dividend paying stocks to supplement my retirement (still many years away) and as an emergency fund.
65 year old retired physician living almost exclusively on dividends. Don't like the way we are sacrificing our country for our own selfish purposes. The opposite of the values I was raised with.
I am a retired business owner and have been managing my own investments for over thirty years. For about ten of those years I followed approximately 100 companies, doing my own fundamental and technical analysis. I now use mostly mutual funds and ETFs for capital appreciation as well as REITS and MLPs for income. I have an MBA and had a series 6 license at one time in my life.
