I am a young individual investor with technological and financial background (MSc Aerospace, MSc Finance). I work for a leading technological company and manage my own capital.
My greatest influences: Warren Buffett and Philip Fisher. I invest for the long term in superior businesses managed by outstanding individuals and selling at a reasonable price. Think big, think long term and buy the business, not the stock.
As of February 2015, I am long TSLA, NVDA, AAPL, SEDG, PANW, SCTY, PYPL, AL and GILD.
Past portfolio returns (US stocks, dividend payments included):
* 2015: +22.9%.
* 2014: +4.7%.
As a contributor to the New Low Observer (http://www.newlowobserver.com/about-this-site), we intend to give new insights on a low risk approach to trading in dividend paying stocks for tax deferred accounts. The New Low Observer (http://www.newlowobserver.com/about-this-site) is not intended for regular or non-qualifying accounts however, the strategies and stocks mentioned can be used for non-qualifying accounts with the understanding of the consequences of potential short-term capital gains as well as the need for exceptional documentation for IRS purposes.
I have a professional background of working with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Although I am an economist (and probably because of that fact), I am adept at being resourceful and thinking in a multidisciplinary fashion. For this reason, my professional experience only reflects a wide perspective that I have gained through the years and should not connote an air of authority.
Geophysicist (oil company) and part-time investor. Trying to collect long-term stocks in growing companies with moats, dividend-growth preferred. Dividend growth and income with generally safer companies (strong ones with competitive advantages and a "moat" barrier-to-entry) is a strategy I like, learned mostly from great Seeking Alpha contributors (thanks!). Have a diverse portfolio of ~70 stocks and ETFs, yielding over 3% in dividends; looking to provide nice retirement income- mostly via growing dividends, with a growing capital base. Like to buy reasonable-value 'Chowder rule' companies with 7-8+% earnings & dividend growth and it's great if they have a nice starting yield of 3+%. I've learned the hard way NOT to chase yield, but instead to value total return. I'd rather buy great earnings growth companies with lower yields & pay-out ratios, but excellent earnings quality/predictability, because capital growth is more important than current yield. Predictable, relatively safe GROWTH is the #1 priority. Long: AAPL, GOOGL, JNJ, GILD, CELG, NVO, AMGN, RHHBY, NVS, ABBV, BIIB, MRK, REGN, SNY, AGN, XBI, V, MA, DFS, DIS, NSRGY, PEP, KO, GIS, HSY, PG, CL, KMB, MO, PM, UL, DEO, MCD, UNP, CNI, FDX, UPS, CF, POT, DE, KMI, GE, BA, UTX, LMT, MMM, HON, NOC, GM, T, VZ, NGG, SO, WEC, MSFT, ORCL, CSCO, INTC, QCOM, PCLN, O, VTR, HCN, OHI, CCP, HTGC, MAIN, AFL, VXUS, VIG, DVY, ABC, CAH, MCK
Evaluation of the dominant assumptions and an understanding of the dynamics of the economic engine is the basis of an approach to asset allocation that provides for both a rational determination of value and an understanding of sentiment in the form of price as a measure of the irrational nature of the operational environment, an approach that is intended at once to avoid unnecessary risk while at the same time enable gradual rebalance of assets as a means to increase net worth via optimization of appreciation and long term yields. Let's call that buy low and fly high just for fun.
I'm an Independent investor with a passion for equity research. I'm usually long term minded, but occasionally engage in short term trades.
My trading style focuses primarily on fundamentals, with short term technicals occasionally commanding my attention. I believe that making money in the market requires forward thinking investment objectives, patience, confidence, and a trading ethic that embraces the opportunities presented by short term downtrends.
