I am managing my own money after getting burned using "professional" investment advisors. I am retired and developed my portfolio to achieve an income stream that meets my needs. I tend to worry more about income tax than the last 1/2% of gain. My goal is to maximize my income without losing principle.
I am a dividend investor and look for undervalued investments in the stock market. I identify misunderstood and undervalued equity investments and hold those securities until their price approximates my estimate of intrinsic value. I am a long-term investor only.
I am building a $100,000 high-yield income portfolio. I am running this portfolio as an experiment to see if long-term sustainable income can be generated from a diversified pool of high-risk, high-yield securities. I am willing to accept high risk in order to meet my performance goals.
