Private investor interested in preservation / increase of capital while providing a reliable and increasing income stream from dividend investments. I look for high yield opportunities in stocks that are undervalued or unloved by the market. My risk tolerance is higher than most dividend / income investors. I am also interested in small high growth stocks but secondary to being a value income investor.
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.
New to the investing world as previously our accounts were in mutual funds offered by employers. Attempting to carefully select strong dividend payers, entering on pullbacks to increase yield. Goal is to provide stable income in retirement. Also dedicating part of the portfolio to a few select closed end, high yield funds and strong growth companies to increase the portfolio size. Eventually, the high growth/yield investments will give way to steadier income producers down the road.
Really enjoy learning and have done so reading SA. Thanks, all!
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.
Own/manage a small business. Play with stocks on the side. Have always had an interest in economics and am enthralled, appalled, curious, fearful (for my kids & grandkids) and anxious to see what this horrible treatment of the best country in the world will lead to. My layman opinion is not very positive.
