I have been an active investor for almost 20 years. My main focus is on high-yield stocks, particularly MLPs, and high-growth oil companies in the Eagle Ford shale. I have a portion of my portfolio allocated to short-term trading, with a focus on over-reactions to company news and directional plays on VIX-based ETFs. I am happy to answer just about any question sent my way, especially from those new to the stock market.
I managed large box retail stores for 30 years. I then retired from retail, studied for several years and opened a financial services firm. I was a registered representative for ten years and recently sold my financial services business. Core holdings: EPD, MMP, APTS, BIP, HASI, BX, COR, CVS, DLR, CELG, AMGN, HTGC, JNJ, LMT, MAIN, MHLD, NEWT, NRZ, OHI, RTN, UNP, WPZ, OAK, SIR, SXL, SRLP, TEP, UTX, WPC, MPW, and BIF. As a former Registered Rep, I now own zero mutual funds after seeing how they were destroyed in 2008.
I am projecting that the US govt is near insolvent and that we will be facing a new Bretton Woods currency agreement bringing gold back into the monetary system in combination with a sudden fiat currency devaluation (across the board-most currencies) against gold over a long weekend or an outright sovereign debt panic by 2020-2025. The least expected outcome double digit inflation is very likely sometime in the future. The Fed PRO-POVERTY policies are going to crush the poor, fixed pensioners and lower middle class since disposable income growth is limited. Beware middle class and retirees your purchasing power will drop dramatically when everyday necessities absorb a larger % of your income. To spread the word to the brainwashed American drones that this economy is one big illusion ponzi scheme and you are infact broke. Issuing more debt to solve a debt problem is crazy. I am accepting nominations for those that played a major positive and major negative impact on our economy.

I am working in the commodity trade finance business and earn a considerable part of my income with investing my own funds. My main interests are in investment strategies, equities long and short and occasionally in volatility.
I am a keen dividend growth investor with a new found passion in the stock market and buying income on sale.
Although a fan of the lower risk DGI method, I am all in for financial freedom and attempting to retire by 30. I am therefore willing to take on more risk to get there and I am now investing into higher yield stocks predominantly MReits, BDCS and Reits. I firmly believe that this approach will get me there faster alongside investing in undervalued dividend growth stocks that will compound better in the long run.
I am looking at a complete 50/50 split of DGI growth stocks for stability and 50% high yield alternatives. I am now looking into Reits, MReits and BDC's for my journey to financial freedom.
36 years old. Native German. I work as an equity analyst at a boutique Investment Bank in Europe. I started investing privately in 2001 - just to get burned badly. Got back to investing my private wealth in 2013 with great success so far. I prefer momentum and value strategies. Typically looking for out-of-favour stocks with quality business models. Use fundamental analysis (competitive strategy, defensibility, structural growth potential, valuation, free cash generation) combined with technical analysis for entry/exit points. I am willing to hold high conviction ideas for 1-2 years but will trade in and out of positions depending on news flow and technical indicators (oversold, overbought). I am currently heavily invested into oil and commodities (zinc, copper).
