I am a 65 year old retired engineer and company manager. I have been investing in the stock market for twenty years.
I was involved in engineering for the mining industry, so I like to write about mining companies. However, I will write about whatever catches my interest.
I believe in value investing, and fundamental analysis, and I look for stocks which are undervalued with a low risk profile

In addition to technology, I am interested in dividend growth and income investing.
I make references to music I'm obsessed with (e.g., Old 97s, Elliott Smith, Bruce Springsteen) in my writing. If you notice any of these references, it makes me happy.

Vernon W. Hill writes to us as co-Chairman of Bankstocks.com (http://www.bankstocks.com/) (together with Tom Brown (http://seekingalpha.com/author/tom-brown)). Hill is the founder and former Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Commerce Bancorp. Beginning with a single branch in Marlton, New Jersey, Hill proceeded to turn the U.S. banking industry on its head over the ensuing 34 years. Using such innovations as first-class customer service, free coin counting, and seven-day-a-week banking, Commerce went on a growth tear unheard of in retail banking—or just about any other industry, for that matter. By the end of 2007, the company had grown—almost entirely organically--to a 470-branch, $49 billion institution. Many of the innovations Hill pioneered, such as evening and weekend hours, are now standard practice in many parts of the banking business.
