High Yield Dividend Portfolio; I target a minimum 10% return on price *and* a minimum 5% for dividend yield. Early retiree, father, and grandfather. Seeking alpha n00b. Opinionated SOB. Radical liberal conservative libertarian (I VOTE FOR NONE OF THE ABOVE!). I'm actually a Marxist - of the Groucho variety!
I am a technical analyst and I am looking to promote what I can do through my seekingalpha content, in order to get work as an analyst.
I aim to bring the best ideas from technical analysis, those that make intuitive sense and present them in an easy to read, relevant format. I have written a blog: raretimestrader.com since 2012 and have a good track record on there.
Please get in touch if you like my ideas and the way I present them. You can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and my LinkedIn profile is available through my blog.

I’M NOT A FINANCIAL ADVISOR OR SCIENTIST & ONLY GIVE MY OPINIONS. SEEK EXPERT ADVICE ELSEWHERE. ;) Investment Philosophy: Understand why you are getting in.
My positions, long or short can change dramatically as new information comes to my attention. All stocks are risky, but, don't follow me into a penny stock without realizing they are HIGHLY risky and you can lose ALL of your investment.
No payment in any form is accepted for my writing by any company or other party. I only receive that which comes from writing on Seeking Alpha.
Education is an undergraduate degree in Business Administration and Management. Masters' in Organizational Management.
Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. ;)
Forward View Consulting, located in Virginia, is not your typical investment research provider. We're never interested in hot stocks or Wall Street's darlings of the moment. Every research note and report we publish will be based on a long-term perspective and fundamental research methodologies. That's the Forward View difference. Forward View's proprietary equity valuation model underpins our stock price targets and utilizes years of historical financial statement data to produce detailed forecasts. We have formal ratings, estimates and targets on: Acushnet (GOLF), American Outdoor Brands (AOBC), Big 5 Sporting Goods (BGFV), Brunswick (BC), Cabela's (CAB), Columbia Sportswear (COLM), Camping World (CWH), Dick's Sporting Goods (DKS), Callaway Golf (ELY), Hibbett Sports (HIBB), Johnson Outdoors (JOUT), MarineMax (HZO), Nike (NKE), Newell Brands (NWL), Sportsman's Warehouse (SPWH), Sturm Ruger (RGR), Under Armour (UA/UAA), V.F. Corporation (VFC), Vista Outdoor (VSTO) and West Marine (WMAR).
I am a "reformed" ex-financial adviser who made a career change into healthcare for both practical and altruistic reasons. I have over 15 years of past experience in wealth management. During my previous career I specialized in overall portfolio management and relationship management for ultra-wealthy clients. Prior to voluntarily walking away from a very successful but ultimately unfulfilled career, I co-managed a book of business totaling approximately $1.2 billion AUM including stocks, bonds, mutual funds, hedged funds and private equity funds for a private trust company.
However, after a close family member passed away in 2011 I did some deep soul searching and decided to leave the wealth management business in 1012 for a career in healthcare. From an altruistic standpoint, I believe that I can have a more meaningful impact on society in the healthcare field as a clinician. Also, from a more pragmatic standpoint, I believe that disruptive technology will have less of an impact on careers such as physicians, physicians assistants and nurse practitioners; these types of careers are hard to automate for a number of reasons beyond the scope of this bio.
Now that I have successfully completed my career transition into healthcare I would like to leverage my years of financial experience to keep individuals informed and entertained. I would be doing this research for myself so why not write about it in an open forum like Seeking Alpha. Thanks for reading my profile and I hope that you enjoy my articles.

I'm managing editor for SA PRO. I oversee SA PRO and Marketplace and support in a few other areas on the site. I'm always happy to hear from readers and contributors, whether to help with questions, hear your feedback, or learn how you're using the site. I've been working at SA since September 2012.
I've been investing for 6 years. I used to write articles for Seeking Alpha before becoming an editor (while I'm proud of the work I did, it probably would not have been up to our PRO standards, which is a good thing). I am probably one of SA's most frequent users, and have learned an immense amount from contributors, readers, and SA employees.
Beyond the market, I like reading, travel, writing, playing/writing/listening to music, and learning languages. Probably most relevant to ask me about SA, but you're welcome to get in touch on anything else as well.
Retired (70+ and not counting) mathematician and computer scientist who is now in the distribution phase. I began investing real money in late 2014 building my portfolio as the market allowed..
My goal is a portfolio Yield of =>3,5% with a Total Return of =>6%.
My updated portfolio is on my Instablog
Accounting and finance major that focuses on a variety of investments. Interested in long-term dividend paying stocks and short-term trades. My goal is to trade short-term price discrepancies, while slowing building a dividend paying long-term portfolio.
Value Digger holds MSc. in Electrical Engineering, speaks four languages and has lived in the U.S. for many years. Also, he is a full-time investor and a freelance writer with one of the highest Followers per Article (F/A) rates in Seeking Alpha. His F/A rate in Seeking Alpha is above 30.
After creating "Nathan's Bulletin" (a subscription-based investment guide for investors who can't afford a financial advisor), Value Digger launched a subscription-based Premium Service in Seeking Alpha entitled "A Fundamental Investor's Stock Club" which includes an unparalleled, actively-managed and high-return Portfolio of unknown and/or underfollowed stocks. Regularly updated and detailed lists in his Premium Posts PROVE these high returns. For reference, when Value Digger was managing money in the early 2000s, his Portfolio's annual ROI consistently exceeded 50%. His Premium Research is based on a comprehensive review of company-specific factors, macro conditions, competitors and the industry trends.
When it comes to his publicly-available picks and his free Seeking Alpha articles, Value Digger is ranked in the TOP-50 with a success rate of over 70%, an average return per recommendation of over 20% and a 5-star rating according to TipRanks.com, which is the highest category quality ranking used to evaluate financial experts. TipRanks.com is a comprehensive investing tool that allows private investors and day traders to see the measured performance of anyone who publicly provides financial advice. TipRanks.com collects data, evaluates and ranks 9,000 financial experts worldwide.
After almost 30 years of investing experience in the international markets (U.S., Canada, Australia, Europe), Value Digger has formulated a deep understanding of valuation analysis and his investment philosophy is firmly grounded in Ben Graham-style value-oriented opportunities that often have an assymetric risk/reward profile. On that front, he has created a unique proprietary database with thousands of publicly-traded companies per sector, which helps him spot the bargains and the bubbles before many investors find them.

Now a little bit about me:
Born in Germany and currently living in Greece, I have been investing and educating myself for over 8 years. I believe keeping a broad spectrum on knowledge in all levels (mico and macro environment), can help an investor truly understand how the business environment works and hence be able to profit with fairly low risk (comprehensive knowledge reduces risk). Hence, over the past years my financial knowledge has spread from financial statement analysis to macro-economics.
I rarely engage in day trading and I value standard procedure rules, discipline practicing and low risk investments (low risk does not translate into small earnings). I have a degree in Finance and I am operating a well-respected Macro-analysis & Geo-economics website (www.analyst.gr) and engage in facilitating exports (www.expohellas.gr).
I am interested in small capitalized companies with a high optionality to the upside compared to the relative downside risk. I am grounded in a value based approach but will also explore special situations. I am a trained CPA and continue to practice in industry.
Warning: my twitter account is very random but will have a lot of economic and business items sprinkled with Green Bay Packer comments.

My responsibilities are to grow the site's audience, deepen user engagement, and improve editorial processes. I am a CFA charterholder and member of the CFA Society Washington, DC.

Canadian Dividend Growth Investor primarily. For diversification, I have a significant percentage in US dividend growth companies as there are limited choices on the TSX. I also purchase undervalued companies with good growth prospects for short term gains.
It is very hard or impossible to time the broad market consistently — there are no famous investors that got rich by consistently knowing what the broad market would do next. This only makes sense, as there are just too many variables in the broad market. But there are many famous investors who got rich analyzing individual securities, and this is where you should put your focus. You can get an edge in individual securities.
