I own several nuclear utilities, industry (mining and enrichment), simulation stocks, ETFs, and strong dividend/value/growth stocks in the S&P 500. Investing in what I know, and in strong nuclear utilities and S&P companies, has made and kept my portfolio results better than S&P, and my broker's exclusive customers' portfolios for over 20 years. I use using various screening, quantitative methods to find my gems--what else would you expect from a PhD engineer! I am a nuclear engineer with 4 degrees (BS, MS, M.Phil, and PhD) in nuclear and mechanical engineering, with 14 years of utility experience, 9 years as a professor, and now in government research and development for 14 years.
I try to carefully trade weekly & monthly stock options with expertise in mining companies & traditional manufacturers. Speak & write fluent Portuguese and speak good Spanish. Resided twice in Brazil and once on Guam Island. Employed at the same large foreign-owned Distribution Center the past 15 years & completely 100% Pro-NAFTA. Smart individual investing is the preferred solution to improving one's economic future, as opposed to vast & vague government handouts. Seeking Alpha is the #1 best financial blog because of honest opinions & superb organization.

Living life making multiplications is such an important hopefully, daily event. As it has been for decades now. Each day does bring different DATA / events which may pertain or not to each trading vehicle/vessel.
The Revenue Avenues are important in this stage in my Trading, and Life, now as well before personally and Professionally . Dividend Re-Investment especially with a Discount multiplies yours / mine quite well in the compounding . Monthly and/or Daily, IMHO, is best.
