As a contributor to the New Low Observer (http://www.newlowobserver.com/about-this-site), we intend to give new insights on a low risk approach to trading in dividend paying stocks for tax deferred accounts. The New Low Observer (http://www.newlowobserver.com/about-this-site) is not intended for regular or non-qualifying accounts however, the strategies and stocks mentioned can be used for non-qualifying accounts with the understanding of the consequences of potential short-term capital gains as well as the need for exceptional documentation for IRS purposes.
I have a professional background of working with the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Although I am an economist (and probably because of that fact), I am adept at being resourceful and thinking in a multidisciplinary fashion. For this reason, my professional experience only reflects a wide perspective that I have gained through the years and should not connote an air of authority.
Deep value, contrarian investor with a very long term outlook (35 + years). Believe in dividend investing which is growing more challenging every year with the increasing velocity of change within the global economy. Resident of Florida but I have a sweet spot for Boston and Buffalo. I live well below my means and invest the difference. Fiscally conservative , father of two beautiful little angels and married to my college sweetheart. We hope to retire one day to Hawaii, if my DGI investing is fruitful.
I am an almost 40 year old investor with a long term perspective and a lot of patience. I mainly think about the future when investing in stocks. I do not care about what my selection of stocks will do next year, but what the result will be in 2040 or so. To paraphrase Warren Buffett: "You should only have stocks that you would feel comfortable having if the stock market closes up for 10 years." That means that I look for stocks that combine growth and value. It has been proven that the group of dividend initiators and fastest dividend growers outperforms the markets by far in the long run. So I mainly select stocks from this group, although I also select some non-dividend payers that I believe will grow out to great future value players. Hence: from Growth to Value. I appreciate your comments, because I believe I can still learn a lot from your feedback and I believe in the wisdom of crowds.
Retired at the age of 44 10 years ago.
Luckily hit it big during the hot markets in the late 90's and now basically run my own set of portfolios each day searching for opportunitites in stocks and bonds in the comfort of my own home office.
Sure beats working for big corporations.
