I have retired from a 35 years career in the semiconductor industry. I now have the time to do the deep research necessary for successful investing.
I freely provide investment information for friends and family.
I am a member of MENSA, which means precisely nothing except I wake up in the middle of the night doing pointless math problems in my head:)

I buy established, good companies with strong management, solid balance sheets, free cash flow, growing earnings, and increasing dividends. This is a long strategy, which buys value situations, combining the fundamentals of Growth at a Reasonable Price, with Dividend Growth Investing. This style has been coined as "I-GARP" by Clay King.
To further reduce my risk and enhance my returns, I enter positions by selling puts, also known as short puts. I practice Teddi Knight's strategy of using option premium capital to build positions, and use technical analysis, (Bollilnger Bands, 10-20-30 moving averages, and earnings misses) to enter trades, as practiced by Teddi and Dr. Samir Elias.
While investing in nokia I got interested in Vringo because they bought 500 patents from nokia. Since nokia took off I started trading vrng instead and so far I have noticed the stock trades with a $2.70 to $3.50 range. perfect for selling puts and calls.
I am a technology lover. Love buying gadgets to try out. The best thing so far that I bought was the HP touchpad on fire sale. Tried out Webos and then put android on it. I like apple products from iphone to ipad to apple tvs. I also owned the Samsung Focus wp7 phone but got bored waiting for Mango update to come out. I am currently waiting for Nokia to come out with a lumia phone with Wp8. When the Surface comes out i will give it a try also.
I got the 920 and now own the 1020 and I recently gotten a refurb surface RT with type cover for $199 of ebay , a refurb but with 1 year warranty ....
Now I am waiting for my last lumia from nokia the quad core phablet called 1520!
with the recent msft nokia deal, I seem to have lost interest in windows phone. I am now waiting for the iphone 6 to come out, if that has a bigger screen I will upgrade to it. the lumia 1020 will be my last windows phone for a while.
as a investor I enter positions using secured puts, and when assigned, sell covered calls
I retired as CEO of an Automotive Parts supplier, and manage an investment portfolio for myself and family. I have a BA in History from Royal Military College of Canada and an MBA from the University of Western Ontario. My first career was as a fighter pilot in the RCAF, and, following my MBA I joined McKinsey & Company, Inc. leaving them for Canadian GE. I left CGE as a Vice President in 1984 and founded The Enfield Corporation Limited ("Enfield") which grew from 243 employees in 1984 to over 10,000 in 1989 when Enfield was taken over and I was replaced as CEO. In 1989, I acquired control of Algonquin Mercantile Corporation, renamed Automodular Corporation in the late 1990's when I turned it to focus exclusively on automotive parts sub-assembly. Along the way, Algonquin turned a few ageing drug stores into Pharmx Rexall Drug Stores Ltd., sold to Katz group in 1997 and today a major Canadian drug store chain. I have been a private investor since 1971 both directly and through a private company controlled by myself and members of my family.
