I am a retired mid 50s upper Midwest private investor who has been in the markets since 1973. Now interested in emerging and frontier markets as our main hope for retirement asset capital appreciation. Evolving global energy industry now garners additional investing dollars. Also manage aggressive income oriented portfolios for my extended family via CEF, mREIT, pipeMLP, BDC, levered long/short bond ETFs and EM debt. Follower of Jeffrey Gundlach, Chuck Royce and Jeramey Grantham....I also watch & listen for David Herro, Roger Edgerly, Bob Gardiner, Mark Mobius, Daniel Yergin & Ian Bremmer.
Retired at 56 in 1993. Worked for 34 years, planning on stretching my retirement out to 34 years as well. Old picture - lost 100 lbs since that was taken. Part-time investor now. 80% of our liquid assets in Roth accounts, and half of those in preferred stocks. Still get excited about some investments - latest two - Brookfield Asset Management, (and 3 of their LPs), and Newtek. Getting interested in options - slowly. Only educating myself now - when I'm comfortable I'll start paper trading. Another update - Anne and I just celebrated 61st anniversary of the day we met - I was the patient, she the nurse. Raised 8 daughters - lots of interesting times. More of the same now with 19, thus far, in the next generation.
Retired entrepreneur who now manages his stock portfolio full time. Mainly a dividend investor, particularly international stocks without withholding taxes as my tax position does not allow me to reclaim any withholding taxes.
I am ALWAYS looking for interesting stock ideas involving dividend paying stocks that pay dividends with zero or very low withholding taxes and willing to share ideas with other investors.
I also like high risk situations as I am well diversified and have a long time horizon
I am a reformed MD, now with a finance MBA, and studying valuation independently by developing some conservative DCF models using FCF per share. You can make any investment work if you set a low enough discount rate.... that's one of the discouraging things about doing anything other than passive index investing. Forecasting isn't too accurate, those darn standard deviations are too wide. Margins of safety and alpha are rare and hard to separate from the noise.
