I am Seeking Alpha's CEO and Editor-in-Chief. My love for the stock markets goes back to when I was a kid. Who else remembers combing through the stock quotes at the back of the business section of your local paper?
I joined Seeking Alpha in 2006 and launched Wall Street Breakfast and Market Currents, our top-of-class short-form breaking news for investors. In 2010 I became editor-in-chief and in 2015 I became CEO.
I live in Jerusalem with my wife and a bunch of exceptional kids. Most days, you'll find me making the commute from Jerusalem to Raanana. Occasionally I get to work from my home-office, from where I keep an eye on the beautiful Judean Hills.
To contact me, send me a direct message, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

The picture is James K. Polk; one of our most successful and underrated presidents. Ran for office stating he would accomplish 4 things. Accomplished all four, died shortly after his term completely exhausted.
I'm a 'newbie' to this investing/trading business and find myself researching for hours cuz it's fun, which you may think is because I've been lucky, which I have so far. I live in Phoenix after years of living in Colorado, Montana and Wyoming and am still not quite adjusted to the summers here. Yeah, it'd be great if I could earn enough playing the market to spend summer in my second home but I'm not that big of a player. I'm single, disabled due to bad genes, ha, and miss being productive and challenged so find this fulfills the need to use my mind!
I've been investing on and off for alittle over 10 years, but I've been getting more into it recently (ever since social media became the norm for communications). I don;t have alot invested, but I try to save as much as possible for stocks because I feel the chance at making money outweighs the risk of not investing. My goals are to generate at least 20% profit from my trades.
On a personal note, I am a semi professional photographer and would love to travel the world and photograph it. It's a hobby that I can one day turn into a lucrative revenue stream.
Would love to network, so send me a message or talk stock with me!
I'm a student at the University of Vermont, majoring in early childhood special education with a major concentration in communication sciences and disorders and a minor in economics. I started investing about a year ago and I can't get enough. I'm trying to learn as much as I can in college so I'm prepared for life after.
Too many Investors have failed to fund their retirements adequately because of poor performance investing in individual stocks and 401k mutual funds. Consequently, they have given up stock investing, convinced the game is a loser for them. In this time of nearly zero interest rates, how does one provide retirement income?
I rejected the quest for capital gain and changed my primary investment goal to income growth (cash flow). I became a "dividend farmer," buying stocks I visualized as "Money Trees."
My stock trees produce renewable crops of cash dividends, either monthly or quarterly. Each position grows through reinvestments into additional shares further accelerated by increased annual dividend rates declared by the quarterly payers.
My goal is to build and maintain a portfolio of high-quality companies that have a history of raising dividends annually and that figure to keep doing so for decades. In 10-15 years, that reliable, growing, inflation-beating dividend stream will complement monthly Social Security and pension payments, giving me predictable, dependable retirement income.
This is my investing strategy. Off the beaten path.
