Dr. Kris has two degrees from MIT because one just wasn't enough. Her life goal was to figure out the universe and having done that (at least to her satisfaction), she decided to tackle something even more difficult—the stock market.
Applying the scientific method along with an insatiably curious mind, she began trading stocks, futures, and options in order to find the holy grail to market success. She's discovered to her immense satisfaction that not only is there one way to succeed but many. Combining her love of cooking with the stock market, she's devised recipes for investment success designed to please the palate of most investors. Dr. Kris currently manages a private equity long/short portfolio and writes of her current research projects that appear on her website, StockMarketCookBook.com.
Her most exciting project is applying market timing models to Modern Portfolio Theory to not only give greater returns but at substantially lower levels of risk. (See PortfolioPreserver.com for further information.)
OK, it's now about three years after I first started lurking around SA and one year into my retirement. Thanks to getting heavily back into the market in 2009 and jumping into the world of high div and high div growth stocks (MLPs, REITs, BDCs, CEFs, and some of the 4+% big cap div growth stocks), I can afford a few speculative trades now and then.
My timing was perfect with early to mid 2009 as a major entry point for me for 90% of my portfolio. However, my speculative trades and channel trades have not worked out so well timing wise, but I keep these trades to 5-10% of the total investment portfolio.
Currently, working on techniques to minimize risks to income from investments while minimizing the time required to maintain the stocks in the portfolio. Investment income and a pension from a high-tech company are more than enough to support my wife and I at 57 and 62 years, respectively, and we've decided not to draw social security early.
I continue to think SA is one of the best avenues around for learning and sharing about investing, and encourage everyone to always do their own DD. May one day become a contributor.
