If you are reading this to find out who I am because something I just said pissed you off, let me take this opportunity to apologize. If you are reading this for any other reason, surely you must have something better to do. If that sounds rude, see above.
I am a 30 year old with a full time job working for state government. I am interested in retirement and dividend investing. I became interested in investing and personal finance following graduation from Graduate School where I earned an M.A. in Psychological Counseling. I learned about the concept of compounding in my early 20's and began contributing to a ROTH IRA at 23 and have continued to do so at the maximum amount.
I dabbled in Penny Stocks when I younger and while I did not lose money, it became clear to me that long term I could not be successful with such limited information regarding those companies.
I am a Dividend Growth Investor with interests in Small to Large Cap stocks. I hope to share and discuss my retirement moves, as well as my thoughts on current market conditions.
Seeking surplus value. I hold public equities that are disproportionately priced (on a risk/reward balance), generally with a several-year investment window. I'm a PhD-wielding, ex philosophy professor who has pivoted into a career doing market value appraisals of closely held businesses.
I have been buying stocks since I was 15. Yikes! that means I have been an investor for almost 50 years!
I am a Full Time Investment Advisor since the late 70's. I hold an undergraduate degree in Economics and Political Science and an MBA in Finance and International Business as well as several other Investment Licenses. Stocks didn't get me though college. Scholarships did. Stocks are my passion.I love writing too. If I ever retire I might do more of it!
Because of what I do for a living I can't write articles yet. I have recently relocated from the Northeast to Florida.
There's an old adage : Teach a man to fish and he will eat for life. Updated version:
Obama has this rule for us to follow :
Give a man someone else's fish and he will vote for you !
Capital is fungible,when used properly it goes where it is best employed.
Fiat money in America is created solely as a result of the Federal Reserve system. Therefore it is totally accurate to say that the Federal Reserve system generates our most unfair tax. Both the tax and the system that makes it possible should be abolished.
The political scientist who authorized this process of monetizing the national debt and the monetary scientist who carry it out know that it is not true debt. It is not true debt because no one in Washington really expects to repay it, ever. The dual purpose of this magic show is simply to create free spending money for the politicians without the inconvenience of raising direct taxes and also to create a perpetual river of gold flowing into the banking cartel.
Each year since 1969, Congress has spent more money than its income. The Treasury Department has to borrow money to meet Congress's appropriations.The Congressional Budget Office web site's deficit analysis will show this . We have to pay interest* on that huge, growing debt; and it dramatically cuts into our budget.
I manage my own investments and trade primarily equities and options. I primarily practice a fundamental analysis strategy but also follow technical trends as a guide as well as macro, and sector based trends. I favor investing in energy, technology and healthcare and other high growth areas.
