Dividend Investor from Ireland in my early 40's with two kids aged 7 and 5. Starting my journey in dividend investing in October 2015. Would be conservative in my approach and although I do pursue capital gains and cash in on them when they become substantial I always like the back up of a Dividend payment.
Retired. Senior Partner of OTA Services, LLC a company providing high density compaction equipment to the industrial and commercial market. Former Director of Sales and VP North America for a Fortune Five Hundred company servicing the waste disposal industry. Have been an investor since 1968.
In distribution phase. Interested in CEFs (esp buy-writes), MLPs (ouch) and Munis for their tax favored distributions in my taxable account. My belief in alternative investments (eg long-short) hasn't been rewarded by good returns, but I continue to explore alternatives (eg EFFE). I find the simple dynamic asset allocation strategies, eg TLT-SPY, quite compelling and may move in that direction. Have been working on backtesting software to explore various ideas.
