I can best be described as a fundamental, often contrarian, somewhat jaded/skeptical, investor. I'm a scientist in real life and am comfortable with using statistics to detect BS. I mostly trade mid to longer term options, both calls and puts.
Pre-retirement, relatively new investor. I've made a few brief forays into the investing world (mostly successful) and have experienced how the dividend stocks I invested in always kept me on top of the curve even in down times. Now I'm looking to learn all I can about investing, and am especially interested in high yield and growth dividend stocks for their income and reinvestment potential while also (hopefully) maintaining and growing capital.
New to investing, reading all I can at the moment to learn as much as I can. Right now, I'm kind of a scalping trader, buy low, sell high. It's been working for me, for the most part. Thinking about retirement in near future, and interested in finding good growth stocks with dividend income.

Evaluation of the dominant assumptions and an understanding of the dynamics of the economic engine is the basis of an approach to asset allocation that provides for both a rational determination of value and an understanding of sentiment in the form of price as a measure of the irrational nature of the operational environment, an approach that is intended at once to avoid unnecessary risk while at the same time enable gradual rebalance of assets as a means to increase net worth via optimization of appreciation and long term yields. Let's call that buy low and fly high just for fun.
