Were in the best market in the world why settle for less when we can settle for more why make money quaterly when we can make it monthly. Why get 10% a year or 3% when you can get 12% or 18% every month. Why speculate when you can make money all the time. I'm in this market to make money and acquire more wealth not to buy a stock that only acquires growth and pays back no money in return.
I worked for the federal government and have now retired. I worked in Asia twice, Europe twice, and once behind the "iron curtain". My job was to gather info and submit reports, mostly dull. I was often referred to being an oxymoron. I studied several languages, Spanish, British, German, Russian, and Vietnamese, plus their history, laws, and culture. I have worked and lived in two countries that are countries no longer. The people are sitll there, doing better, just changed citizenship. My job# was 971A-H and sometimes 972A. Enjoyed the work and people I met. Would do it again if needed. I have a BS degree in math and computers, helps me think using logic.
I retaired in 1999 from transportation/ tour driver for Trailways for ten years. After the Union busted our operation I became a OTR truck driver hauling truck load freight. This was a great opportunity to learn something about different companies.
I am married and had 8 kids, 4 sons and 4 daughters 16 grand kids, 3 great grand kids, and they are a very livly bunch. I call them my "gang".
Today I am injoying my retairment by being a caregiver for my wife and her 92 years young mother which have Alzheimer's at the seven stage level, and to put it bluntly... I am busy. However, I find time to make a few trades a week and do some home work on that.
I like college sports, football and basketball, march madness is about my favorite time of the year.
LSU is my favorite footbal team and proud to say they partisipated in the greatest college football game ever played. the greatest

I mainly focus on two sectors: technology and auto industry. I am long only and I like to take a conservative approach where I sell covered calls on the shares I hold in order to reduce my risks. Some of the stocks I follow closest are Nokia, Microsoft, Ford and Apple. I believe that being able to see beyond numbers and actually understanding business models of companies we cover is crucial to provide useful insight on companies.
