I'm an Army veteran and former energy dividend writer for The Motley Fool. My goal is to help all people learn how to harness the awesome power of dividend growth investing to achieve their financial dreams, and enrich their lives. With 20 years of investing experience, I've learned what works and more importantly, what doesn't, when it comes to building long-term wealth and income streams. I'm currently on an epic quest to build a broadly diversified, high-quality, high-yield dividend growth portfolio that:
1. Pays 4-5% yield
2. Offers 9%-10% annual dividend growth
3. Pays dividends AT LEAST on a weekly, but preferably, daily basis

Ever feel like trading is like rolling dice? In a way, it is, because every mathematical model of the market includes a stochastic aspect. But I believe we can load the dice in our favor through the use of statistics. Understanding both the stock market and each individual stock as a sort of random process with its own characteristics allows us to more accurately predict what it will do in the future. Coupling statistics with fundamental analysis, I have the goal of revealing to you the hidden patterns within stocks so that you may do what you wish with that information.
I am the founder of the Braeburn Group of independent AAPL analysts and author of the Posts At Eventide web presence.
The objective of my work is to benefit readers seeking to understand Apple's financial performance and to provide a repository of information and analysis at my web presence for other independent AAPL analysts preparing quarterly estimates and share price forecasts.
In addition to following Apple, I maintain a keen interest in the personal technology product markets and follow publicly traded enterprises offering technology products and services to consumers.

Four female investors and one Dachshund.
We no longer trade equities. Heidi and Desiree's interests are in the fields of global water distribution, agriculture, and timberland. Clarissa and Helga manage strategies of certain hard assets, predominantly the PGM metals group.
While our names (Heidi, Helga, Clarissa and Desiree) may not be our real names, Schnitzel the Dachshund's name really is "Schnitzel the Dachshund."
You'll never see me write a long bio listing all of my credentials and degrees or refer to myself in the third person. I love discussing ideas and I appreciate it when people can play devil's advocate without resorting to personal attacks. In short, I employ a long-only, long-horizon, focused value style, guided by thorough bottom-up research and backed by years of accounting and finance experience. When people ask me "what do you do?" I assume they mean for fun.
Formerly: John Galt.
The majority of my capital is invested in Dividend Growth stocks. I also enjoy searching for the next big thing.
To grade my investment decisions: I've usually been able to "buy low", but I've often sold out too early. I'm firmly against losing money. I have no problem with building up my portfolio slow and steady. After the 2008 Financial crisis I've been much more macro focused instead of being more of a stock picker.
I love a good stock debate, looking at the best bull case, best bear case and picking my side. I believe in doing your own due diligence! I enjoy reading finance/stock market books among other things.
Love traveling, and always have my eye out for the next investment idea when at home or abroad.
Peter Way Associates is the only known provider of the price range forecasts of widely-held, actively traded stocks derived from the hedging activities of market-making [MM] firms as they balance big-$-fund sellers and buyers in large block trades. The price ranges offer explicit downside exposure forecasts not commonly found in publicly published investment analyses.
This is all forward-looking data, based on what the MMs will pay for protection against coming unwanted price change while temporarily committed firm capital is exposed to market risks. It is available by modest subscription cost at blockdesk.com.
The behavioral analysis involved has been performed daily since Y2K, now on over 3,000 stocks, ETFs, and market indexes. That has built an actuarial history of how market prices have subsequently behaved following several million price range forecasts, issue by issue.
That data provides a qualitative backdrop to current forecasts in terms of odds of profitable positions, size of prospective gains, credibility of forecasts, and worst-case price drawdown exposure experiences.

I am an individual investor. My professional background is in the finance area. I have managed my own investments for over 30 years. For most of that time, my focus was on portfolio building using individual stocks. About 5 years ago, I shifted my focus to investing via ETFs. I have found that this has greatly simplified my investment style yet simultaneously increased the scope and diversification of my portfolio.
I firmly believe that the benefits of investing, and the market, should be understandable and available to everyone, including individuals who may have little or no financial background. My hope is to explain concepts simply, taking much of the mystery and accompanying fear out of the process. I look forward to enjoying the journey with everyone who decides to follow me, and hope I can make a difference in someone's life.

Retired early from IT and work full-time in investing. Develop strategies to trade. It is my passion to check out why some strategies work and why some only work in certain market conditions.
I am a freelance writer, business and technology enthusiast, and occasional investor.
In my professional career, I have founded a digital entertainment firm, and worked at several blue chip IT and technology companies as a Product Manager and Team Leader. I have been active in the markets for several years, and am primarily focused on long/short stocks and options.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts with Honours degree in Business Administration from Kingston University in London, United Kingdom.
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 > 2X(my pension+wife's pension+my Social Security). In the 3+ years that Apple has been paying dividends, that's amounted to a total of $1,320,696.82.
The only AAPL shares we sell are to meet RMD requirements of my IRAs or for travel, etc.

I'm a tech columnist for TheStreet. I was previously responsible for Seeking Alpha's tech news coverage, as well as its Eye on Tech newsletter. Prior to that, I wrote for other financial sites and published independent investment research, primarily on tech companies.
I have a B.A. in Economics from Columbia University. I'm based out of San Diego, but grew up in Southern New Jersey. I play basketball and tennis in my spare time, am a long-time (and long-suffering) fan of Philadelphia's sports teams, and alternate daily between using an iPad Air, a Galaxy Note 3, and one or two Windows PCs.
I am an adjunct faculty member at the R. H. Smith School of Business at the University of Maryland. With the help of my students I focus on fundamental equity research, reviewing over 120 companies a year. This site is used to publish a sampling of the research we produce. The goal is to give the students an opportunity to participate in the production of high quality research similar to what will be demanded from them in industry. The methodology we employ was developed at Johns Hopkins under the direction of Prof. Steve Hanke. This approach is centered around the proprietary concept of Sustainable Free Cash Flow and deviates significantly from many of the popular valuation protocols. Most significantly, it treats the subject company as an on-going system that the stock price tracks. As a result, the process focuses on historical distributions of parameters that in combination, produce various levels of cash flow per share. The stock price is then compared to this output in order to ascertain its probable direction.
John Thomas graduated with a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry with honors and a minor in mathematics from the University of California at Los Angeles (U.C.L.A.) in 1974. He moved to Tokyo, Japan where he was employed by a medium-sized Japanese securities house. Thomas became fluent in Japanese and was trained as a domestic Japanese research analyst and money manager. In 1977 Thomas became the Tokyo correspondent for The Economist magazine and the Financial Times of London. Thomas traveled extensively throughout Asia, interviewing premiers, presidents and prime ministers, writing on macroeconomic trends, and producing countless features about individual companies. Thomas witnessed China’s cultural revolution and was one of the first American correspondents to enter China prior to the U.S. normalization of relations. Thomas authored several books about the Japanese financial system still in use by business schools today. In 1983 Thomas joined a top US investment bank in New York with the mandate to develop an international equity business for the firm. In 1985 he moved to London, England to establish a presence in Japanese equity derivatives for the firm. In 1989 Thomas was appointed a director of one of the big three Swiss Banks with a mandate to design sophisticated hedging strategies for the bank’s considerable holdings of Japanese equity warrants and convertible bonds. With the invasion of Kuwait by Iraq, Thomas was drafted by the US Marine Corp to serve as a pilot. In 1990 Thomas became a pioneer in the nascent hedge fund industry by founding the first dedicated Japanese hedge fund. The firm managed segregated accounts for a variety of government agencies, banks, and high net worth individuals in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia. After a decade of spectacular absolute and relative performance he sold his firm in 1999 and retired to manage his personal investments in the oil and gas industry. Seeing incredible opportunities in the marketplace and yearning for the adrenaline and satisfaction offered by active management, Thomas launched a new hedge fund in 2007. In his free time Thomas is a commercial aircraft pilot, long distance hiker and mountain climber, wine collector and avid photographer.
