I am a retired Registered Nurse interested in biotech and new technology.
I am the Delta Sigmoid (dumb sh__)
I have no idea why people "follow" me, as I know next to nothing, and what I do know is enough to be dangerous to myself and others, I am good at sticking foot in mouth, and sticking up for people, and once in a while I even amuse myself!
It's a good thing I don't manage my own portfolio, I have mad money to play penny stocks, more fun than gambling, but my penny stock picks suck too!
Good luck to all!
Now where's my drink? ;)
I am a busy surgeon with a particular interest in personal finance and investing. My father, a retired financial advisor, taught me discipline and the power of dividends and compound interest. I do not feel it is necessary to employ expensive, self-motivated brokers or managers to invest one's money.

I spent 34 years in the banking and financial markets in NYC. I held Series 7, 72, 63, and 24 Licenses. I know the fixed-income market inside and out and enjoy investing in both bonds and equities. My undergrad degree is in economics, and I am proficient in the management of the Treasury function of banks and corporations.
I am in equipment sales in industrial and laboratory markets. As I am getting within 3 years or so from retirement I am shifting from focusing on growth to generating income. I do not reach for yield, preferring a mix that allows for solid growth of the income stream and capital appreciation. I have built a diversified portfolio of solid dividend paying companies who grow their dividends at a rate beyond inflation with 80% of investable assets. I also maintain a growth portfolio of 10% of investable assets.
Retired from 35 years in manufacturing in 2013. Investment style shifts between buy and hold,
call writing, pair arbitrage, put writing, depending on the stage of the business cycle. I believe in listening to one's instincts (but not necessarily acting on them) as they are probably widely shared by the market. I particularly value a sense of dread as things begin to look too good to be true.

I am a former private equity and venture capital attorney with many years of investment management experience as a sideline. I've recently retired from legal practice to concentrate on fund management on a full-time basis. I now manage separate accounts for a small group of high net-worth clients.
From 2001 to the current, I have been an investor in distressed real estate and I have provided mezzanine financing to real estate investors. From 1995 to 2001 I was a professional angel investor and consultant to early stage high technology companies in the ares of finance, corporate governance and capital raising. From 1984 to 1995 I was the CFO, COO and an owner of a high technology company that provided financial services software and services. I was a licensed CPA for 35 years, but I practiced as a CPA only for the first six of those years.
i have an MBA from the University of North Carolina. Go Heels!
I live in Manhattan, work too much and have little time to trade, hence downhill. Thinking of cutting my losses and rolling my IRA into Vanguard funds and ETFs. For now I'm in AAPL, TWTR, TSLA, ABBV, GPRO, HOV and VVUS. Mostly high flying losers! The heady days are over I guess. It's 2016 and volatility rules the days. I'm becoming a real sourpuss! :-(

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.
