I am an individual investor with technological and financial background (aerospace, AI, self-driving cars and finance). I work for a leading technological company and manage my own capital.
My greatest influences: Warren Buffett and Philip Fisher. I invest for the long term in superior businesses managed by outstanding individuals and selling at a reasonable price. Think big, think long term and buy the business, not the stock.
As of January 2017, I am long TSLA, NVDA, AAPL, SEDG, PANW, PYPL, GILD, AL and ATVI.
Past portfolio returns (US stocks, dividend payments included):
* 2016: +21.9%.
* 2015: +22.9%.
* 2014: +4.7%.
I am the husband of one wife, and I have one college aged son who still sees me as a mentor. I am a world citizen; a fighter of poverty through clothing the naked, feeding the hungry, and visiting the sick, orphan and stranger.
I am long several stocks but starting to transition towards all income growth dividend stocks, plus a smidgeon of S&P 500 Index funds. I am heavily invested in the Apple Ecosystem and a high-end user since Powerbook 100, LOL, although I was a late iPhone adopter, I've owned Palm, Nokia, Sony/E.
I have extensive international experience and am very multicultural in my approach to everything. Also, I am an avid science fiction reader, and have a collection of all the Nebula and Hugo award winners, mostly first edition.
