Own & operate a real estate firm & a leasing company. The real estate residential arm does business in multiple states & the commercial arm, we have found success primarily in the home state of the firm. The leasing company is used to shelter liability, but also is a residential landlord. I am a long-term dividend growth & value investor that rebalance core holdings when I feel it is necessary. That's not to say fundamentals are everything, as technical analysis can play a role in my long-term investment decisions. I think Seeking Alpha has many of brilliant minds if you sift through with your own due diligence & if you're not a member you're missing out on some extremely valuable insight other members have provided. Of course, SA cannot be the only resource, but it can be a foundation if used correctly to increase the probability of investing success.
