Value investor focused on dividend growth investing. Started investing in 2011 due to poor performance and high fees of mutual funds. My favorite book on investing is Benjamin Graham's The Intelligent Investor. This is my favorite quote:“An investment operation is one which, upon thorough analysis, promises safety of principal and an adequate return. Operations not meeting these requirements are speculative.” ― Benjamin Graham, The Intelligent Investor Wise words that we should all strive to follow.
