I am a military officer in the Republic of Korea with 15+ years of personal investing and trading. I gained my knowledge through family and personal research, and remain a long-term horizon investor. I focus primarily on a buy and hold mentality, often DRIPs, while accumulating cash reserves to use for purchases on stock price dips. My main sector is consumer staples, but I do look for long-term growth stocks and growth stocks bound to become value stocks. As a note, I use a pen name due to the position I hold in that it would cause tension/friction within my organization to publish here, even as my opinions do not in any way represent those of the Department of Defense.
