I'm a retired mechanical technologist, graduate of Ryerson, 1952. My work was in machine, tool and product design. I also registered a number of inventions. One returned about $1,000,000 in royalties.
I was part of the Avro, Orenda Engines Group, and designed mechanical test equipment for the Avro Arrow aircraft. After that truck trailers for Canadian Trailmobile, where I designed did the first production shipping containers made in Canada, also dump trailers, stake and rack, and numerous special purpose trailers. Following that I was chief engineer for Reynolds Extrusion Co.,Canada. Later worked for two other aluminum companies where an assembly machine I designed won 1984 gold productivity ward. I retired in 1986 after setting up two plants for a Nigerian Co. Since then I have gradually got into investing, which now provides about half of my income.
I’m married and we have 2 children, 6 grand children and 9 great grand children
My hobby was sailing hence the sailingsnowbird nick name. I also wrote a book on my sailing adventures has just been free on the net. A copy can be had by requesting one at firstname.lastname@example.org
I AM A NUMBER DUMMY!!
A term I use for the general public MIDDLE CLASS. We are the financially uneducated, unexposed to the stock market and financial investments. Most of us don't even know what the fiscal cliff is. One woman thought it was 70 ft. tall! WOW!
I for one, think we should start teaching our kids financial responsibilities in schools, at an early age. How about a REAL education for once.
Why we need classes like home eck is beyond me. Cooking & sewing?? Read the box & microwave it! I for one support a small tax on investment income to support financial education in public schools. Could help save America.
I'm coming to the game late, so I'm quite aggressive towards growth.
My thoughts on the fiscal cliff?? Shove ur scare tactics where the sun don't shine!!
As for investing, I shoot from the hip. I go with my gut. Common sense goes along way. I don't buy hype. EPS what? What ticker is that?
HISTORY; 20 yrs. prototype machinist. 12 yrs. construction labor, management, owner.
Current; Investments & gardening (yes, profitable..gardening that is ;)
I work in capital markets for 12 years, with a heavy focus on resource stocks. First in financing, then in capital markets communications, I assisted 30+ companies to expand their shareholder base into Europe.
This inside track into the resource industry allows me, to listen to unfiltered, non-sugarcoated facts and stories, you will not read in the media. This is where I derive my investment ideas from, which I would like to share with you here.
Living and working in Germany, I will provide the perspective of a European resource investor. Besides a perhaps slightly different market perception, I also follow Asian and European resource companies that might be overlooked by North-American investors.
