I am a rookie Canadian investor. Since late 2012, decided to manage some of my portfolio myself, and thanks to "Seeking Alpha", have (so far) generated positive returns. Consider myself a 'value' investor, primarily looking for dividend and income. Investing is my new 'obsession' and the "Seeking Alpha" community has become an invaluable source of information. In my previous life, I was a Business Consultant and have an MBA in Marketing and International Business.
