Recently retired in 2010 from the Auto Industry, retiring at 59 years old. I am trying to manage our investments without the use of a paid advisor. The avenue I choose was Vanguard to rollover our investments with and so far have been very happy with our results. I am a light trader investing in mostly dividend paying growth stocks. Quality stocks with a buy and hold attitude is where I'm going and not selling when Mr. Market gets a little nervous. Always reading when I can on investments and other people's articles with insight so rich with advise you just can't pay for that kind of help. Current Holdings: GE, PG, MO, MSFT, XOM, KO, PFE, PPR, AA, XRX, HERO, ZAZA and a few others.
Bob is retired from a career in law enforcement including more than 20 years as an instructor of Investigative Interviewing. He is a Dividend Growth investor using dividend yield from low beta stocks for income and preservation of capital. Bob has self managed his portfolio since early in 2011. He hopes to encourage discussion among those already in retirement and receiving income from their portfolios.

I believe that everyone needs a portfolio business plan.
