I have been investing in stocks for about a decade. I feel more like a value investor and a contrarian. I invest primarily in Canadian and US stocks. I favor mostly prospective small caps or unloved large caps. I primarily feel like commodities will get more expensive with time and I am confident growth will continue its way.
I am a retiree with a portfolio of dividend paying shares plus a small amount in bonds with various maturities. Mainly I prefer to invest in companies with low P/E ratios, above average dividend yields, solid balance sheets, and managements of good character. Occassionally I'll take a flyer on an undervalued stock but on the whole I prefer the steady and reliable.
