I have a background in Journalism, and I hope to shed some light upon the media practices I witness each day in the Stock Market. I graduated from Portland State University in 2003 with a BA in English. I make money as a restauranteur, deejay, and writer. I joined the market in June of 2013, which presented some terrific buying opportunities. Recently I quit my night job as a bartender to concentrate on business plans, market research, and to continue making money in the market.
“I started off being interested in [Engineering / Technical Field] back and thought I would do that for a few years. But after getting exposed to stock market I realized that I was much more interested in pursuing a carrier in investment profession because I want to make an impact and work in something much faster-paced. Currently Working as a portfolio risk analyst in BlackRock.
I'm a father and grandfather. I had a wonderful career as an art director and creative director in advertising, eventually leaving my "day job" to write and illustrate children's picture books. I've been investing for a long time with no formal financial background, but I'm learning every day. I consider myself a "Dividend Bull", and I always re-invested my dividends automatically from no-load mutual funds and stocks. In the past two years, I've become more aware of dividend growth stocks, and I have been re-balancing my portfolio to be more selective in choosing dividend stocks. In light of the last two turbulent years, I'm more convinced than ever that this is a good way to go, eventually stopping my re-investing and just receiving dividends in cash. I thank SeekingAlpha and many of the fine contributors for the many things I keep learning about investing.
