Retired RN, have been investing for about 10 years but have always been interested in the markets, just never had the time, money or focus to actively participate. For decades, was pretty good at protecting, growing, managing other people's money, either as a manager in the private health care sector or helping my husband with his business. Now, I am all in, working to build a portfolio that I can use to help my family and others. Recently resigned from a BOD position for a 501 C, due to a move to Washington State from PA. But I learned a great deal from the board members, as well as those whom we served. I never cared for health care, the margins are so small. But did do well with MNKD before the July 2014 FDA news, and am long HTA. Long MCLOX, ETE, COP. AAPL, WM, OTTR, PG, XOM, ALK, [GSK a very recent buy] and BA [also recent, July 2014]. I am in and out of PSX, BX, YORW, WTR, BMTC, INTC, and I follow negative news about some stocks so that I can learn. My biggest mistakes have been NLY and PBR.
