I have been in the Stock Market for over 50 years. Fortunately I have made money most of the time. Unfortunately, I would spend it faster than I made it. I now try to live by the motto "If it is to be, it is up to me" I almost exclusively am a Dividend Growth Investor. I wish I had Seeking Alpha and its terrific authors many years ago, I would be a rich man by now. I am retired and have half of my equity in Stocks and half in Real Estate Properties. I might trade a couple time a month, but only to upgrade my portfolio. About half om my working life has been in State and Local Government Our Country needs to move toward with less Government and Taxes of all types. We have to move to full employment. My Name is Jerry Dyba, but would like to use "Dividend Newby" as my handle in Stocks ti remind me I still have a lot to learn.
