I'm in my 40s. You can describe me as 70% Buffett and 30% Lynch. I like dividend paying stocks, but its not a requirement. Two things i enjoy in investing 1) collecting dividends 2) finding multibaggers. I have no formal financial education. But I am an avid reader/collector of financial/business books. Since 2001, I have been fortunate to have increased my net worth in the double digits compounded annually , easily outpacing the S and P 500. I am at a point where my portfolio has reached critical mass . I don't need home runs anymore. However, I am always open to multi-bagger ideas. 1/1/16 2015 was another year of double digit return.
