IT Professional with additional interest in growing assets and preparing for the future. Invest in longs only and rarely trade, as I am building a portfolio of high-quality stocks and other assets that will provide income separate from work.
Semi-Retired, new at active investing, seeking knowledge on best ways to invest my 401K and IRA investments, from passive mutual funds to dividend growth investments. Seeking income in the next few years through solid yield dividends while still securing and hopefully appreciating capital. Looking to add some more dividend aristocrats to the mix since they will help pay the bills in a few years to come.
Currently hold AAPL/CSCO/CLDT/EPR/EMR/F/GILD/HCN/INTC/JNJ/MAIN/MO/NHI/OHI/PFE/RAI/SBUX/SFL/SO/T/TROW/VLO/VTR, WFC, some Corp.bonds-GE/DUK/ED/VZ, BAC, also ETF DHS. (Plus some mutual funds I'm sorting through, getting ready to sell for more cash.)
