ABOUT
I'm a 50 year old personal investor who first got into the market just in time to get clobbered in the 1987 crash. That taught me 3 lessons:

1) When everyone, including your mail carrier, is boasting about their stock market returns, start looking for the exits;

2) Don't assume that trend lines will continue indefinitely in the same direction;

3) Keep enough cash aside to go long when people start using the word "Armageddon."

I have a base of dividend stocks, REITs, CEFs and ETFs, and use their proceeds to go long on stocks that have been beaten down to value levels, such as CRZBY, EAD, SRHGY, VOD (positions now closed) and currently IRE and PT.
