Retired HR administrator.
Financially and politically Conservative
Thoroughly disgusted with the current chaotic economic climate, as well as the overwhelmingly self-serving and irresponsible tax-and-spend whackaloons of every political stripe with whom we are presently afflicted.
Longterm buy-and-hold DRIP stock investor.
Living life making multiplications is such an important hopefully, daily event. As it has been for decades now. Each day does bring different DATA / events which may pertain or not to each trading vehicle/vessel.
The Revenue Avenues are important in this stage in my Trading, and Life, now as well before personally and Professionally . Dividend Re-Investment especially with a Discount multiplies yours / mine quite well in the compounding . Monthly and/or Daily, IMHO, is best.

US Major Gen. Benjamin Butler's monument so reads. "the true touchstone of civil liberty is not that all men are equal but that every man has the right to be the equal of every
other man - if he can."

OK, it's now about three years after I first started lurking around SA and one year into my retirement. Thanks to getting heavily back into the market in 2009 and jumping into the world of high div and high div growth stocks (MLPs, REITs, BDCs, CEFs, and some of the 4+% big cap div growth stocks), I can afford a few speculative trades now and then.
My timing was perfect with early to mid 2009 as a major entry point for me for 90% of my portfolio. However, my speculative trades and channel trades have not worked out so well timing wise, but I keep these trades to 5-10% of the total investment portfolio.
Currently, working on techniques to minimize risks to income from investments while minimizing the time required to maintain the stocks in the portfolio. Investment income and a pension from a high-tech company are more than enough to support my wife and I at 57 and 62 years, respectively, and we've decided not to draw social security early.
I continue to think SA is one of the best avenues around for learning and sharing about investing, and encourage everyone to always do their own DD. May one day become a contributor.
