I am a retired financial services professional and like everybody am seeking a defensive income portfolio yielding 6% with low beta. Currently, I hold PGH yielding 8% and T yielding 6% purchased at 2009 lows.

My first trade took place in 1983 using a student loan to purchase Janus Fund, a relatively unknown mutual fund at that time. As a result, I graduated without student loans. My best trades have been AAPL, AMZN, BTU, LABL, LION. Best losers have been covered calls on cyclicals like BTU and option trades on indexes: SPY, VIX and TLT.

I like to buy on fundamentals and perk up on small-caps with low P/Es, debt ratios and growing EPS. I have an aversion to leveraged ETFs.
