carefully investing but more often investigating; have had 6 decades of remembered losses in both public markets and private placements. Still a board member of a nonprofit and still holding shares in companies seeded long ago but not yet having reached their investor exits. Trying to be thoughtful about investments and enjoying the experience. Becoming less current all the time, likely finding me to be a doddering old fuddy duddy for anyone reading what I post here.
I am a professional who spends their day looking at securities, swaps, legislation and legal implications on the same. I look for value where it is otherwise not found. I look for the Blue Star Airlines before the Blue Horse Shoes of the World, exploit it.
My stock portfolio is most about trying to capture tiny slices of ownership in the dominant publically traded companies in the world (in most sectors and industries) and not overpaying for that little piece of future earnings. I want to pay at most fair-valuation (although sometimes I try for bargain prices) as long the company appears solid and I think the company will be around 10 years and more. That is what I found produce the best total returns. I am mostly focussed on mature companies that pay dividends, but I do make exceptions, for leading companies in some industries - even if their dividend yield is low. I appreciate diversification and risk-management by not putting too much cash into each stock.
