I believe that I can categorize myself as a semi-retired, occasional investor, who is interested in developing my expertise in this field. My background is in real estate development. I remain active on a limited scale in that arena. I find myself interested in the Dividend growth area of investing. I am as interested in the growth of stocks that I invest in as I am the dividends and their related growth. I am interested in learning more about REITS and MLP investment.
