Took over my own portfolio in April of 2012 after being consistently disappointed with brokers and financial advisors with their associated fees that eat into disappointing returns. Here to get investing tips and learn as much as possible. Would like to start building a dividend producing portfolio with some capital appreciation also as I work towards retirement.
