I am a professional who spends their day looking at securities, swaps, legislation and legal implications on the same. I look for value where it is otherwise not found. EQUITY, DEBT, CDS, ISDAFIX (IR SWAPS) FX. and a major advocate of good corporate governance = better valuations.
Hi, my name is Dave. Retired Senior Manager after 35 years in Information Technology. Bachelor of Science in Mathematics, way back when. I'm managing my retirement dividend growth portfolio with an objective of higher than average current dividend yield coupled with annual dividend growth exceeding the long term rate of inflation. The goal is to use dividends to supplement my pension and Social Security income. I maintain a smaller,taxable growth oriented account to generate capital gains over the medium term to periodically refill a safe bank account for additional spending.
Occupation - Banker
Graduated UC Davis 2006
Have been building my portfolio consisting of Dividend Paying Blue Chip Stocks.
Goal - Substitute my salary with Dividend / Option Income
I am currently a junior at Brown University studying Applied Mathematics-Economics. I have been involved in the Brown Investment Group for almost 3 years, where I was previously on the Healthcare Research Committee and currently am on the TMT Research Committee.
My investment style is primarily of a long-only equity value investor but I seek to learn and understand everything I can about all types of investing styles.
I am a cat. I invest so I can retire early to focus on my passions of sitting around all day and chasing laser pointers. I wouldn't read too much into what I say.
Although, even a cat is smart enough to avoid Amazon with a PE (ttm) of 873.40, the 3D printing stock bubble, etc., when there are perfectly profitable multi-billion dollar companies with either reasonable price/earnings ratios or growth catalysts. I love catnip as much as the next cat, but that doesn't mean catnip is the best investment option available. That would be dog pounds.

Self-directed student of the swing trade and dividend growth investing (DGI). Per Lowell Miller: "The warrior mentality will continually remember these principles of investment, and use them to ward off the slings and arrows of uncertainty and influence that are a constant nemesis. They will be the investor's garlic against the Dracula of the market environment and the market conditions."
