Formerly: John Galt.
The majority of my capital is invested in Dividend Growth stocks. I also enjoy searching for the next big thing.
To grade my investment decisions: I've usually been able to "buy low", but I've often sold out too early. I'm firmly against losing money. I have no problem with building up my portfolio slow and steady. After the 2008 Financial crisis I've been much more macro focused instead of being more of a stock picker.
I love a good stock debate, looking at the best bull case, best bear case and picking my side. I believe in doing your own due diligence! I enjoy reading finance/stock market books among other things.
Love traveling, and always have my eye out for the next investment idea when at home or abroad.
