I am a retired 20 year Wall Street $ manager. I specialized in fixed income, equity positioning with covered call writing hedging strategies. My experience is finding undervalued or oversold companies, taking a long position and writing a covered call to increase my monthly returns. Over time this strategy has outperformed most with minimizing risk.
Writing Style: I try to combine facts, analysis, and a touch of humour/story into my writing. It is my hope that this makes the topic of investing and securities for interesting while at the same time accurate and actionable.
Investing Style: I am an individual buy and hold investor. I believe an individual investing their own money's greatest advantage is patience. They do not have clients banging down the door for redemptions every time stocks decline nor do they have bosses, mandates, or other things that get in the way.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------My name is Dan Gaskell and I am a retired 56 y/o living in Costa Rica. I invest with growth in mind but income is at the forefront of my investing techniques. My objectives are safety, dividends and moderate portfolio growth. I have invested in high tech, high growth and speculative areas such as options in the past but my current portfolio reflects a more moderate and safe approach.
I’m a recent contributor, but have been managing my own portfolio since 2006. Over time, I’ve done quite well choosing my own stocks. With the recent downturn, however, I’ve found that I need to be more focused and consistent when choosing and monitoring my holdings.
Part of my process will be developing a strong framework to manage my portfolio. The specifics should be expected to change as I develop as an investor, but this is my current approach:
I view business transactions as human interactions, and seek to purchase businesses with a track record of ethical, prosocial and environmental decisions. My rule of thumb is that if I told someone that I were the full owner of a company that I hold in my portfolio as opposed to a shareholder, I wouldn’t want to be embarrassed.
I take this approach for two reasons: first, I want to spend my money on things that make me proud and confident. Second, in the long run, self-interested, harmful behavior is punished. Prosocial, ethical behavior is rewarded. There are psychic and financial rewards for owning businesses that treat people and the environment well.
In the past, I’ve tended to take a value approach. More recently, though, I’ve become more risk tolerant and tend toward growth at a reasonable price, particularly when I can find the Mastercards, Starbucks, and Home Depots, which are growing profits, dividends and capital gains simultaneously.
I’m currently working on which metrics to analyze and how best to create my portfolio to blend a secure, dividend-growth core with a handful of more speculative and aggressive positions.
There’s a deep bench of good thinking on this site, and respectful, thoughtful comments are strongly encouraged. I’m here to learn, and my hope is that my contributions will help others do so as well.
I am a novice investor, I live in Russia, at the moment I am a student. I learn to analyze companies with small capital and also ETFs. My portfolio strategy is the strategy of share repurchase, I'm trying to analyze how the market price if the company decide to buyback shares. Sometimes consider companies trading below $1 and suggest how best to hedge their risks. Sometimes companies that are traded below one dollar, can grow well in price and show good results in the future. I am interested in further consideration of the strategy of mergers and acquisitions. Now I decided to write articles on seekingalpha, as I am sure that this site will give me a great understanding of the market and will help to improve the skills of the investment.
