I have a private small company with a few different revenue streams. I survive off of one particular stream and invest the other smaller streams into the market. I consider myself a longterm value investor and am not risk averse. I have three seperate portfolios each holding one third of my capital. My goal was to create a multiframed method of analysis that might allow the average retail investor to pick investments that have a high probability of doubling or tripling. I am willing to cut against the grain and take contrarian deep value bets based on price value inefficiencies. I would like to compound at 30% average yearly gains in an all of my accounts. I have had 2 years of compounding my money at over 300% in these accounts so I would be ahead of my current benchmarks. As of end of 2013. However, I do not expect to be able to repeat my results over the long term by trading. In fact I expect to sometimes underperform the market as many of my ideas might take time to come to fruition. I will often use arbitrage opportunities or short term swings for smaller gains. I am working on fine tuning my methodology but I believe it is unique and should produce the minimum average of 30%. I am currently ahead in this race and can withstand a correction as my portfolio grows quickly. I am also willing to get defensive if need be to protect capital or even go 50%cash. I run this as a very concentrated portfolio. One third of my capital goes in a DRIP that I average in monthly to seven companies. I change these companies yearly based on valuation and position size. I grow positions here over time and never want to hold more than 30 companies in this account. One third goes into long term companies that I see huge growth potential. One third is in speculative bio-tech, tech and just about anything else where I can understand the financial statement sheets on and has great possible momentum and catalysts. I often find myself going against the current trends in the market as I see opportunity in others fear. That said I seem to invest in around 15 stocks at a time and try to focus investments into the company at the best value. I hope to earn a healthy return over the next ten years to twenty years. I am also interested in working in the industry as a career change and am always open to advice. Anyone out there want a 36 year old intern with advanced degrees in other areas? My main skills are finding deep value opportunities and lucrative swing trade opportunities. I seem to have found a lot of bottom entries even in today's markets. I am willing to learn, enjoy games/game theory, love to read and solve problems. I am working on starting a limited partnership for 2015 or 2016 so that I can share my gifts with family and friends.

I enjoy spending time day trading and analyzing the market. I’m always looking for a good swing or day trade, but mostly I’m focused on finding stocks that will hit big and up-list from the OTC to the big boards. Basically, almost all of my portfolio is traded daily, especially considering I tend to look over multiple market segments for trades instead of spending all my time on one section. I’ve been analyzing and trading stocks for over 9 years now, and I have a strong understanding of trends, as well as the knowledge to make smart trades.
I am a 30 year old with a full time job working for state government. I am interested in retirement and dividend investing. I became interested in investing and personal finance following graduation from Graduate School where I earned an M.A. in Psychological Counseling. I learned about the concept of compounding in my early 20's and began contributing to a ROTH IRA at 23 and have continued to do so at the maximum amount.
I dabbled in Penny Stocks when I younger and while I did not lose money, it became clear to me that long term I could not be successful with such limited information regarding those companies.
I am a Dividend Growth Investor with interests in Small to Large Cap stocks. I hope to share and discuss my retirement moves, as well as my thoughts on current market conditions.
