I am an engineer, with 5 or so years until retirement.
I have been investing (learning) since I was 12 yrs old. Started with one share of Boeing and reinvested the dividends, and splits...it was an amazing ride!
Love the very interesting posts from the many, very knowledgable, folks on seeking alpha.
Interested in building a solid, diversified, retirement, cash flow dividend and growth portfolio.
Investor since I was 26 years old now almost 70. Retired at age 54 from DoD Army depot helicopter overhaul and repair. Three years later worked for company out of Huntsville, AL in Corpus Christi, TX on aircraft recapitalization project for 2-1/2 years then retired again. I have multiple investments in oil and gas and in securities as well as working interest ownership. Real estate ownership as mortgage holder and rental property. Current securities portfolio in access of $1,000,000. I went to college at night while working full-time and have an AAS and a BBA business degree. Taught industrial management college level courses (Production Planning and Control and Quality - TQM) for three year while working full-time. Expertise in metal manufacturing (machining and fabrication of aircraft parts) and upper level management over rotary wing aircraft component systems.
I enjoy the company of the love of my life for 55 years. I graduated from UCLA in Finance, and have two other degrees. I am in the process of retiring, but I stay very active and involved in life and living. I believe that the market structure of equity investing is very flawed, and driven by greed and power. There are still opportunities for investing, but you are going to be whipsawed by high frequency traders, market makers, shorts, and a host of other influences which have nothing to do with the underlying value of an equity. Posting and blogs are the way that small investors deal with the underlying frustrations and anxiety of their decision. BUT, there are individual investors who dig deep and share what they learn without a larger agenda. Find them, do your own research, and ignore all of the noise, and you may get it right. Fortune favors the bold.
Just a small time private investor that is currently investing in oil & gas related energy names from Canada in order to generate dividends and income in case I ever get to retire. Still trying to find those monthly dividend payers for future income.
