Became a self directed investor in 2008. Retired in 2011 but still accumulating, mainly through dividend growth investing in Cdn, U.S. & Int'l stocks. Also interested in seasonality and technical analysis which are useful timing vehicles for investing. My portfolio is close to 100% invested in dividend growth stocks, roughly equal weighted by income. I currently hold 10 U.S. & 25 Cdn stocks plus 2 globally diversified mutual funds for parking dividend income.
