I am focussed on building passive income through dividend investing. My path to progress is smart saving, sound investing and income through dividends.

As a current CFA candidate, I enjoy the investing process, both long and short. On the long side, I mainly focus on value driven strategies and the odd time on the growth part of the market. The factors I look for when short selling are different.
Professionally, I am an appraiser, numismatist, and an historian. Follow the link on my website for more information regarding those services. Otherwise I am only a casual investor with a portfolio of boring blue chips and ETFs.
My Seeking Alpha articles are an outlet for my creative energies outside of my professional career. They should not be confused as investment advice, but are simply my opinions and should be utilized as such.
I've developed personal investing strategies for individual stocks and Asset Allocation:
1) Stocks - Fundamental value investor using Free Cash Flow as defined by Buffett's 1987 shareholder letter. Invest in predictable, undervalued stocks with good management. Buy with a Margin of Safety, Sell at Intrinsic Value. Hold cash when nothing is available at my price. Use the Kelly Formula to determine optimum fraction to invest in each stock which maximizes the amount of money you win over a lifetime of investing.
2) Asset Allocation (for 401-k, small IRA accounts, and available cash) - Use a 'Value-Weighted' asset allocation strategy with inputs of projected returns/historic volatility. Apply the Kelly Formula to determine optimal asset allocation. Rebalance twice a year in April and October.

@todd@alphatree I am long-term value investor currently working for a value-based asset manager. My articles attempt to identify companies with unique competitive advantages, hidden value, and special situations.
I am a chemical engineer with a MS in Food Technology and Economics. I am also the author of 2 mathematics books ("Arithmetic calculations without a calculator" and "Word Problems") and perform almost all the calculations in my mind, without a calculator, making it easier to make immediate investing decisions among many alternatives. I invest applying fundamental and technical analysis and mainly use options as a tool for both investing and trading. In my spare time, I follow Warren Buffett's principle: "Some men read playboy. I read financial statements".
I have been researching and investing in stocks and options in my own accounts since 2006. I finished my MBA in 2007 and then worked as the Finance Manager at a start up for 7 years. I'm currently self-employed as an online marketing consultant, but investing is my true passion.
I've found that my skill lies in taking the time to read 10-K and 10-Q reports carefully and being able to then create realistic future projections. As a value investor I tend to look at cash flow as much as if not more than earnings and revenues.
My investment horizon is typically at least 5-10 years, and ideally I place my money into investments which I could see myself holding through retirement. That said, I do also enjoy allocating a small portion of my account to short term options plays.
In our free time, my wife and I love to travel the world. We've each been to over 45 countries and relish the opportunity to see how people live all around the world.

At Valuentum, we think the best opportunities arise from a complete understanding of all investing disciplines in order to identify the most attractive stocks at any given time. Valuentum therefore analyzes each stock across a wide spectrum of philosophies, from deep value through momentum investing. We think companies that are attractive from a number of investment perspectives--whether it be growth, value, momentum, etc.--have the greatest probability of capital appreciation and relative outperformance. The more investors that are interested in the stock for reasons based on their respective investment mandates, the more likely it will move higher.

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.

I am a 29 year old who has been passionate about investing since my dad introduced me to this way of life at the age of 12. As I grew as an adolescent I used my life savings to try to earn my fortune in the thrilling world of high finance. Along the way I've made and lost several small fortunes through option speculation and aggressive growth investing and learned valuable lessons that I want to share. I am passionate about long-term, buy and hold, dividend focused investing. History teaches us that this approach is the most powerful means available to build long-term wealth and income. My goal is to teach my readers how to find, research and follow the kind of companies that will make their financial dreams come true.
