Retired business owner who manages some of my portfolios. Spend most of my time looking for ways to invest . Made most investing decisions for my retirement plan . Golf is now my "job". Investing has looked more like gambling .. I am dividend seeking almost always. It is a great passtime for a retired fan of investing who needs a passtime job.. Preservation of capital, sometimes, is a trick, even for the best. I always make a decision with the caveat "what if", most of the time it saves me money. Stubborn is curable, stupid can't be fixed. SA has some real pros and some real morons. I feel like I fall somewhere in between. I follow some advice but examine all of it. I am grateful that I don't need the money that I "invest", it makes decisions alot easier.
