I am a CFO responsible for a global bank presence in my country I started to spend time in analyzing investments that will increase my cash flow over time in order to build my portfolio for my retirement (hopefully many years from now...). I view the REIT world as a very attractive for investments, especially the medical REITs. My background is CPA and also MBA.
I am retired as of September 30 2013. In 1986 I left my job at a computer services company -- burnt out after 14 years of 14 hour days. I spent a year taking art courses at various community colleges. Then, as personal computers began to take hold for ordinary people, I starting helping friends set up their PC's. This led to self-employment when I stopped refusing payment. Now I spend my time looking for great dividend payers that I plan to hold forever. I try to buy in 100 share lots when I can afford it, So far long DTE, GLW, MAIN, PAG PLOW. It says "REITS" in my header and I don't see any way to change it. Except for MAIN, I now restrict my choices to stocks with qualified dividends.

Individual investor with focus on purchasing great companies at fair prices. I love to buy and own portions of businesses which I believe have a sustainable model and margins going forward, and particularly when they look to be mis-priced. Especially interested in Energy Industry due to many years of experience in the industry, as well as REITs given their unique characteristics and transparency of business models.
