Investor for 23 years, mostly for retirement. Became interested in investing when I stumbled upon Harry Browne's books and his Permanent Portfolio concept. Have also researched Robert Licello's AIM (Automatic Investment Mangement) method. I am a multiyear member of AAII (American Association of Individual Investors), and have, in the past, followed a couple of their stock screens with reasonable success. I am constantly learning about investing, and see no end to the education process.
