Investing for retirement, which is later this year according to the current plan. I work for a too big to succeed bank - I enjoy it, so if I like whatever I am doing this fall, retirement could be postponed a little. *Edit* - I am officially retired. Perhaps I need to change my handle! I've followed a typical progression from mutual funds to etfs to individual stocks. I mostly focus on dividend growth stocks, with a few preferred stocks and corporate bonds sprinkled in. I am now 51, so while I used to focus more on long-term growth, I am now thinking about generating income since I have now retired.
