Hello, My name is Hussam (Sam) Eassa. I am the Senior Electrical Engineering Manager at a division of a large multi-national Corporation. I received my Bachelor of Science, Master’s and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Vanderbilt University. My investing is mainly in my IRA and I prefer large, high-dividend stocks as the foundation of my portfolio but I am willing to take positions on beaten-down stocks that seem to me to be under valued. Want to know more about me? See my profile on LinkedIn: http://www.linkedin.com/in/eassa/ Please note that I speak only for myself on this forum and my comments are in no way endorsed by my employer.
