I am a buy and hold common stock investor. Warren Buffett is definitely my guru. He makes the most sense to me. I began investing in the stock market at age 14 in 1970 with money earned on my paper route. What I have done since 1970 is invest primarily in the Dividend Aristocrats whenever the stock market is relatively low. I have never sold a single share of stock except on the rare occasion when one of my stocks was bought out for cash and I was forced to sell.. I keep all of my stock certificates or direct registration statements in a safe deposit box at the bank. I do not automatically reinvest dividends. I only purchase stocks when I feel that the stock market is relatively low. Brown University, B. A., 1978. Below are the 35 stocks in my portfolio.

I am a military officer in the Republic of Korea with 15+ years of personal investing and trading. I gained my knowledge through family and personal research, and remain a long-term horizon investor. I focus primarily on a buy and hold mentality, often DRIPs, while accumulating cash reserves to use for purchases on stock price dips. My main sector is consumer staples, but I do look for long-term growth stocks and growth stocks bound to become value stocks.
As a note, I use a pen name due to the position I hold in that it would cause tension/friction within my organization to publish here, even as my opinions do not in any way represent those of the Department of Defense.
