My education includes a BSEE and an MBA. I am retired from a 35 year career as an engineer, and 5 years as an educator in a college business department. I am married, with 2 sons, 6 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. I have been a very active (daily) investor for the past 11 years, but I would not call myself a day trader, more like a frequent trader. My portfolio is conservative, with a preference for individual issues, although I occasionally use ETFs. I reserve a modest portion of my stock allocation for more aggressive investing.
After graduating cum laude with a BA in economics from Harvard, I worked in hedge funds and investment banking for ~6 years before leaving to manage my own money full time. I am a CFA charterholder and focus mostly on microcaps / event-oriented trades as that is where I think the market tends to be least efficient. I also started a website to track interesting arbitrage opportunities for individual investors (link below) - check it out!
I am an individual investor. Became interested in dividend growth investing and managing my own portfolio through my reading adventures at Seeking Alpha. I've learned a ton from everyone who contributes and comments here. Still have a long way to go even though I'm semi-retired and drawing Social Security.
