Former Navy and retired airline Pilot, live in San Diego, investing since 1963. I like hard assets, solid companies, and income producing stocks. Have a habit of risk taking I'm too old for, but old habits are hard to break. In the long term, American stocks will give the best returns, and trends always reverse. The first shall be last and the last first..The "herd" follows the leader, who is a computer program these days. Buy value when the market hates 'em. Aim, Ready, Fire!
