December 9, 2016: A very interesting PPP poll was released today. It surveyed ONLY voters that actually voted for Agent Orange. To say that these people live in some twisted alternate reality would be mild. To them, down is up and up is down. A few highlights:
39% believe the Dow has gone DOWN under Obama.
67% believe that unemployment is HIGHER under Obama.
40% believe Trump won the popular vote.
60% believe that MILLIONS of illegals voted for Hillary.
73% believe that George Soros paid people to demonstrate against Trump.
53% believe that ALL of California's votes should not be included in the popular vote.
It should be obvious to even newborns and the most astute of farm animals that people like this really have no business in deciding the future either for themselves or the rest of us. Maybe it is time to bring back a voting test. A quick simple computer-given test to each voter before walking into the voting booth asking basic questions about the Bill of Rights, the Constitution, the function of government. Things they should have learned in the 8th grade, but have chosen to forget.
November 9, 2016: Well, finally. The chapter entitled "Sunset of Democracy, American-style" has been opened. The Orange Hitler ran an outstanding campaign. For a fascist, that is. (Don't believe me, read it for yourself: Bullock, Alan . Hitler: A Study in Tyranny. ISBN 1-56852-036-0).
Textbook example of how to steal an election. Tell a dozen big lies every day, so that nobody can stay ahead of you on fact checking. Create some scandal every couple of weeks to divert attention from the lies and lack of policy. Stir up the base with raw red meat and get them foaming at the mouth so that the rallies get larger and larger. Advocate violence against a minority, any minority, just pick one. Incite your followers to hunt down and attack and cajole those who are not followers. Rinse, repeat, and viola, election won.
I thank the gods responsible for allowing me the wherewithal to live outside the Divided States of America. It's very reassuring to know that the sacrifices I made in my military career and those of all military service members in defense of our freedoms have been worthwhile, because only in a democracy such as ours can a buffoon who will destroy those freedoms be elected to the highest office. RIP, USA.
After retiring from 23 years of service in the US Air Force, I attended Boston College's Center for Professional Education Financial Planning course. After graduation and Series 6, 7 and 65 certifications I worked for a short time with Smith Barney, and then went to a major regional bank as an investment executive. Five years later when the regional merged with another national bank, I struck out on my own starting my own financial services company which I have operated for the past 12 years. Three years ago I started a private funds placement hedge fund, Golden Bay Capital LP.
Living in Shenzhen, China. It's a stone's throw from Hong Kong and borders it on the mainland side. Spend most of my time traveling around and seeing the sights and of course, sampling the fantastic cuisine throughout the country.
It's been my experience that people will make Zeno's mistake over and over forever. False conclusions arise when ignoring the proof of reality just as Zeno and his paradox do. When theory and reality disagree, reality wins every time. If you don't know about Zeno, read up on him here: http://platonicrealms.com/encyclopedia/zenos-paradox-of-the-tortoise-and-achilles

I am a 30-year 'retail' investor in quality dividend paying stocks with emphasis on energy, food products, consumer staples, health care and technology. I learned enough about 'Mr. Market' to be able to retire in my 50's and live the good life with an income stream provided in part by a portfolio of dividend paying stocks.
For the last dozen or so years, I have found great joy in mentoring and encouraging young people to take the leap and get started with investing...pointing out that they have time on their side and that small, regular investments over time can really add up.
Invest. Manage risk. Communicate. Educate yourself. Make profits. .
My name is Todd Johnson. I’m a family man, sports fiend, health nut, technology buff, long-time stock investor, and a very lucky mountain climber, all of which has shaped my philosophy as a professional investor for the last 30 years. As my interests might suggest, I am always looking for the upside while striving to minimize risks.
My new passion, which I have realized through DividendLab.com project, is helping other investors learn more about investing; investing in stocks and other assets that are subject to wide price swings can actually enhance their returns when the right investment strategy is applied. To that end, I read company 10k and 10q statements so they can skip them. I compile and analyze the market research that isn’t always at their fingertips. And I don’t make any investment recommendation without committing my own funds first, which is the purest form of accountability.
Blogger, Self-Made Analyst, Trader, Investor, Crowdfunder and Critical Thinker. Currently, I am looking for a job in the investment space. Job offers are always welcome.
The name "Dutch Trader" refers to The Golden Age. This was a period in Dutch history, roughly spanning the 17th century, in which Dutch trade, science, military and art were among the most acclaimed in the world.
Dutch ships hunted whales off Svalbard, traded spices in India and Indonesia (via the Dutch East India Company) and founded colonies in New Amsterdam (now New York), South Africa and the West Indies. In addition some Portuguese colonies were conquered, namely in Northeastern Brazil, Angola, Indonesia and Ceylon. This new nation flourished culturally and economically, creating what historian Simon Schama has called an "embarrassment of riches". Speculation in the tulip trade led to a first stock market crash in 1637, but the economic crisis was soon overcome.
In 1602 the Dutch East India Company was founded. It was the first-ever multinational corporation, financed by shares that established the first modern stock exchange. This company received a Dutch monopoly on Asian trade and would keep this for two centuries. It became the world's largest commercial enterprise of the 17th century. Spices were imported in bulk and brought huge profits, due to the efforts and risks involved and seemingly insatiable demand.
To finance the growing trade within the region, the Bank of Amsterdam was established in 1609, the precursor to, if not the first true central bank.
My background is Management, Economics and Law. This I studied at Fontys Business School in the Netherlands, with specialization in Banking and Insurance.
My passion is investing, writing, travelling, history, swimming, playing chess and enjoying my family.
I love to analyze companies and sectors and write about it. Main points of interests: China, Biotechnology, Consumer, Energy, Mining, Dividend, OTC Market, Food, Robotics and some other themes.
As an investor I have a bias towards value investing and the markets. All opinions are my own and do not represent the views of my employer.Valuation metrics play an important part of my investment strategies. My investment philosophy is Unloved, Underowned and Undervalued.
One of the best investment quotes is: The key to making money in stocks is not to get scared out of them from Peter Lynch.
