I am a retired clinical psychologist, and administrator and owner of a rehabilitation clinic we founded 40 years ago. For over 55 years I have managed several portfolios composed of investments accumulated over our professional careers. Since the financial crisis of 2008, I have employed specialized, customized dividend growth strategies aimed at enhancing and growing a dividend income stream.
Since December 24, 2014, I have demonstrated on Seeking Alpha the ongoing construction and portfolio management of the Fill-The-Gap Portfolio aimed at highlighting strategies investors may utilize to close the gap between an average Social Security benefit and the much greater costs faced in retirement.
This portfolio has outperformed all of the broad market indexes by a very wide margin, growing dividend income and total portfolio value consistently while the broader indexes struggle in negative territory all year.
Aside from free articles available to the general public, additional early-access, value-added ideas and deep-dive articles are offered to paid subscribers on my premium SA platform, "Retirement: One Dividend At A Time"
Let me show you how to build and grow your portfolio and dividend income, step by step, towards a comfortable and secure retirement.

Retired for 20 years and trade stocks as my sole source of income since I retired. I started my professional career as a Veterinarian, but most of my working life was in R & D in electronics, computers (hardware and software) and finally as Chief Technical Officer for a small publicly traded tech company. Initially I traded tech stock, commodities and the precious metals but I will trade most ETFs and stocks via options if I can get the right initial setup. In recent years I have been increasingly trading various option combinations and selling puts. I mainly trade using covered calls, diagonal call combos, long synthetics (and risk reversals) and cash covered puts. I am not adverse to quick turnover speculative trades it the risk minimal. I normally have 50 to 100 open positions at any time and use my own excel spreadsheets to monitor them in real time.
