I am a retired baby boomer who enjoyed writing in my former profession. I have been an active investor and follower of the stock market for many years. Now that I am retired from my former profession I am going to give a shot at writing for Seeking Alpha in an effort to join both interests into one new endeavor.

I'm an Independent investor with a passion for equity research. I'm usually long term minded, but occasionally engage in short term trades.
My trading style focuses primarily on fundamentals, with short term technicals occasionally commanding my attention. I believe that making money in the market requires forward thinking investment objectives, patience, confidence, and a trading ethic that embraces the opportunities presented by short term downtrends.
