I have been investing over the past several years and building my nest egg with my Roth IRA and Roth 403b, Time is my best friend - and I have more than most. I look at long-term investing with the mindset of where the stock will be in 3+ years from when I buy. My investments vary by sector from REITs to banking and energy. I typically focus on dividend growth investing, but also like to look for opportunities with growth stocks who are valued on short term headwinds and not long term potential. I dabble in options rarely, and only when I see a substantial opportunity. I do not consider trading options a core principle in my investing practices. If you are a dividend growth investor, can stand my poor grammar (I'll admit it's not the best), and want some long-term ideas, feel free to follow me on this site.
