38 year mgt. Executive recently retired with a high tech FORTUNE 500 company continuing to reinvent itself. My strategy is equity stocks , long with value dividends @ 5% or better. I spend time looking at the market & eyeing under valued companies. I am evaluating the differences between Samson and Goliath :div. stocks vs. mid cap ETFs. Like my career that had 9 lives, I try to stay current & keep my capital stable/growth oriented while enjoying living off the dividends.
