President of MLP Protocol, investor, trader, and proponent of Master Limited Partnerships. Also on StockTwits and Twitter as @MLP_Protocol. The primary driving force behind 99%+ of the activity on Seeking Alpha appears to be investors' confirmation bias. Do you want to be part of the 99% or are you trying to get to the 1%? IF AN INVESTMENT GENERATES A K-1 INSTEAD OF A 1099-DIV I WON'T INVEST IN IT USING ANY TAX ADVANTAGED ACCOUNT. Here's why: http://www.wsj.com/articles/thousands-hit-with-surprise-tax-bill-on-income-in-iras-1447427436
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.
Twenty five years of market experience. Particular interest in pass through entities such as business development companies, real estate trusts, partnerships, and royalty trusts. Secondary interest in dividend growth principally consumer staples and insurance stocks as well as wealth management companies.

December 9, 2016: A very interesting PPP poll was released today. It surveyed ONLY voters that actually voted for Agent Orange. To say that these people live in some twisted alternate reality would be mild. To them, down is up and up is down. A few highlights:
39% believe the Dow has gone DOWN under Obama.
67% believe that unemployment is HIGHER under Obama.
40% believe Trump won the popular vote.
60% believe that MILLIONS of illegals voted for Hillary.
73% believe that George Soros paid people to demonstrate against Trump.
53% believe that ALL of California's votes should not be included in the popular vote.
It should be obvious to even newborns and the most astute of farm animals that people like this really have no business in deciding the future either for themselves or the rest of us. Maybe it is time to bring back a voting test. A quick simple computer-given test to each voter before walking into the voting booth asking basic questions about the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, the function of government. Things they should have learned in the 8th grade, but have chosen to forget.
November 9, 2016: Well, finally. The chapter entitled "Sunset of Democracy, American-style" has been opened. The Orange Hitler ran an outstanding campaign. For a fascist, that is. (Don't believe me, read it for yourself: Bullock, Alan . Hitler: A Study in Tyranny. ISBN 1-56852-036-0).
Textbook example of how to steal an election. Tell a dozen big lies every day, so that nobody can stay ahead of you on fact checking. Create some scandal every couple of weeks to divert attention from the lies and lack of policy. Stir up the base with raw red meat and get them foaming at the mouth so that the rallies get larger and larger. Advocate violence against a minority, any minority, just pick one. Incite your followers to hunt down and attack and cajole those who are not followers. Rinse, repeat, and viola, election won.
I thank the gods responsible for allowing me the wherewithal to live outside the Divided States of America. It's very reassuring to know that the sacrifices I made in my military career and those of all military service members in defense of our freedoms have been worthwhile, because only in a democracy such as ours can a buffoon who will destroy those freedoms be elected to the highest office. RIP, USA.
After retiring from 23 years of service in the US Air Force, I attended Boston College's Center for Professional Education Financial Planning course. After graduation and Series 6, 7 and 65 certifications I worked for a short time with Smith Barney, and then went to a major regional bank as an investment executive. Five years later when the regional merged with another national bank, I struck out on my own starting my own financial services company which I have operated for the past 12 years. Three years ago I started a private funds placement hedge fund, Golden Bay Capital LP.
Living in Shenzhen, China. It's a stone's throw from Hong Kong and borders it on the mainland side. Spend most of my time traveling around and seeing the sights and of course, sampling the fantastic cuisine throughout the country.
It's been my experience that people will make Zeno's mistake over and over forever. False conclusions arise when ignoring the proof of reality just as Zeno and his paradox do. When theory and reality disagree, reality wins every time. If you don't know about Zeno, read up on him here: http://platonicrealms.com/encyclopedia/zenos-paradox-of-the-tortoise-and-achilles
