MD in NC who started my own personal individual stock portfolio after losing thousands in a company mutual fund during the stock market crash in 2008-2009. Got back in in 2010. Still reading, listening and learning....and growing my portfolio.
Retired for 7 years, AAPL Long for 15+ years. All trust and IRA accounts for my wife and myself are 100% invested in AAPL and have been for the past 10-12 years.
Thanks to Apple restarting the dividend program in August of 2012, our current yearly AAPL dividends > 3.8X(my pension+wife's pension+my Social Security). In the 4 years that Apple has been paying dividends, that's amounted to a total of $1,422,938.17.
The only AAPL shares we sell are to meet RMD requirements of my IRAs or for travel, etc.

Bumbershoot Holdings L.P. is a private investment partnership launched in Oct-2015.
The partnership uses a fundamental investment strategy as a “quality over quantity” approach to identifying and evaluating great businesses. It primarily invests in small- and mid- capitalization public companies which are headquartered in the U.S. and listed on a domestic exchange. It maintains a relatively concentrated portfolio with approximately 60%-75% of assets in its top-15 holdings. The partnership utilizes low levels of leverage and hedges net long exposure through various short positions and equity derivatives, as dictated by overall market conditions.
I am a value investor to the greatest extent possible. I also favor dividend stocks. I try to be a buy-and-hold investor, but sometimes I can't avoid the tempation to ring the register or to accumulate the inevitable tax loss. The main thing I have learned is that I have lost more money by selling too soon than for any other reason. I reside in Henderson, NV.
Friedrich is the name given to our algorithm for analyzing companies that trade on the global stock markets. In creating Friedrich we concentrated on analyzing each company’s Main Street operations through various established ratios, along with our own unique ratios that we developed over the last 30 years. What we came up with is a final "Main Street" price per share based on Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), which is a framework of accounting standards, rules and procedures defined by the professional accounting industry, which has been adopted by nearly all publicly traded U.S. companies. We feel that our Main Street price result is what each company would need to trade at in order to be attractive to a businessperson on Main Street looking to buy at a bargain.
Since the only constant in the universe is change, the results for each company fluctuate by varying degrees. No company is an island unto itself, but each operates in a world of constant change and at times in areas where Chaos is the norm. By analyzing a company’s Main Street operations over time, Friedrich is able to give the potential investor a decade long analysis (opinion) as well as offering a Trailing Twelve Month (TTM) analysis (opinion), as well. Thus our readers will not only get as close to a real time view of operations on Main Street as is possible, but then can measure the consistency of the company’s operations over time to determine if s/he should invest or not.
Through our Friedrich algorithm we can analyze ten years of Balance Sheet, Income Statement and Cash Flow Statement data for each company all at once and generate one final result in seconds. Friedrich was designed to be ultra-conservative and thus will cut zero slack to any company under analysis and will do so with zero emotion. Companies must be exceptional in order to get an attractive Main Street valuation and the ideal investments according to our backtesting are the ones that have been consistent over time.
By being so ultra conservative Friedrich is designed to identify bargains that Wall Street investors may have overlooked. Companies shares may trade on the stock market but the companies themselves operate on Main Street, so Friedrich is designed to generate a Main Street price per share first and only then does he go to Wall Street and see the price for which Benjamin Graham’s “Mr. Market” is offering the shares.
