My goal is to beat the major averages as simply and as efficiently as possible by selling cash secured puts to buy when I want to take a position and selling covered calls when I want to exit a position. To keep it simple I concentrate, but not necessarily limit, my universe to the stocks in the DJIA. This naturally includes the ETF DIA.
I believe dividends are as important as capital gains as dividends, once paid, can't be taken back but they can be reinvested if desired. The choice is mine.
I write my own bio. Therefore, I talk about myself in the first person.
I am retired with a background in manufacturing engineering mostly in the defense industry. I stay very busy managing my retirement with a focus on physical and mental fitness, resource management, and continuous learning. I consider myself a small investor and have enjoyed investing in the market since the early 90's.
I am a Long term investor attempting to create an income stream for retirement. I focus on dividend growth investing.
I am a Clinical Laboratory Scientist with over 20 years experience in clinical labs. I went back to school and obtained a business degree. I now work in healthcare IT focused on R&D.
