Individual investor - Primarily dividend income and dividend growth. I dabble with Covered Calls and Cash Covered Puts for added income. I have been dabbling in the stockmarket since the 80s but started working hard on building my retirement portfolio about 2010 (I retired in 2015 at age 66) and morphed into mostly dividend growth Investments with some REITs and MLPs for high yields and the tax benefits of MLPs. I am very overweight in Energy stocks from my 401K and because it is the industry I knew, but I am working on minimizing this concentration. My current retirement portfolio is comprised of the following 35 stocks: BASFY, BNS, CAG, CAT, COP, DOW, DPM, EMR, EPD, ETN, EV, F, GE, GIS, JNJ, KHC, KMB, KMI-PA, LEG, LXP, LYB, NSH, OHI, OKS, OLP, OXY, PAA, PG, PSX, RDS-B, STAG, SUN, UL, WFC, WPC
