ex ceo and founder of a company I sold to a private equity group last year. 4th start up sold successfully..i am done now at 65. but I have been involved in the markets since I bought my first stock at 13..cambridge nuclear. gone now..
while I have held a large portfolio of 15% tax qualified dividend bank and ins prfeferreds to yield 6%
I use them as collateral for some trading. I have a list of 50 stocks I trade at various times in their ranges. but now at my age I only wish to hang onto what I have I do not need ordinary income.
so...I read a lot and study and hope I live long enough to see what happens to our economy as a result of the unprecedented debt and fed balance sheet..i have bought physical gold,palladium and
platinum at 10% of my net worth as a hedge against the inevitable inflationary storm..i also bought the GLD for my grandchildren to go to college on. as sure as the dow will be 25,000 some day so gold will be 6X what it is today. they will benefit from it..
