I am a value investor to the greatest extent possible. I also favor dividend stocks. I try to be a buy-and-hold investor, but sometimes I can't avoid the tempation to ring the register or to accumulate the inevitable tax loss. The main thing I have learned is that I have lost more money by selling too soon than for any other reason. I reside in Henderson, NV.
I am retired. Most of my life was spent in academia though I have been an engineering supervisor at a large design, construction company. Hidden in my background is a MS in economics though I never worked as an economist. I have followed the market since the 1960's and have been active since the 1980's. I tend toward contrarian investing; however, my best trades have been the result of a top-down approach and trying to find one of the next trends.
