There is not a lot to say about me as I am pretty ordinary 63+ year old guy in my mind. I like to read in the evenings once I finish "my work" in my Art In Stone business. With the business doing well and my Postal Service Retirement, my wife and I do not need to touch any of our retirement savings so I am in the pleasant position of being able to invest for a fairly long time frame. I started daily investment research when I retired in November 2007. Through January, 2016 our retirement savings portfolio is up over 100% while withdrawing $1,000. monthly. Reading investment articles and commentary and being able to react quickly does certainly make a huge difference. I try to find sectors and even individual stocks I believe are beaten down below true value so my interests in regard to investing change based upon my perception of world; political, sentiment, banking and global economies.
