I am now retired from the US pharma industry having spent over 33 years in the Mid-Atlantic corridor in Sales(Hospital mainly), Scientific Relations and Managed Care/LTC. I worked at BMY, Bayer/Miles Labs and SGP/MRK prior to early retirement.. Today I enjoy investing in Bio-Pharmas mostly, because it is what I know best! I invest mostly in large companies such as BMY, PFE, MRK, GSK, and JNJ (love the divis) but I like the up and coming Bios like CLDX. Cancer and Immunotherapy intrigues me..so I have made that a major consideration since 2008....With BARDA,the GAIN act and QDIP Ive come to appreciate the Antibiotic cos.and have made them a major component of my LT strategy to build wealth while in Retirement....Ive invested in Trius(TSRX),CBST, CEMP, DRTX, TTPH, CTIX and just added AKAO..... I manage personal monies and some family members..gratis of course! GLTA, retiredpharma

I'm a writer for one of the country's largest pop-culture-type magazines and, at the same time, I am one of the world's worst investors. Did I sell an apartment in Manhattan's Flat-Iron district in late 1999, because I feared the Y2k problem? You bet I did. And so it has gone.
Even so, at the age of 60, I have managed to broom together quite a tidy little pile. And I hope to keep it. And grow it. Though I have my doubts, given my investment history, that any of this is possible in the long run. Or even the short.
Herein lies a chronicle of the life & times of my money.
