I'm from MA and I graduated from Stonehill College with a BS in Biology. I took a class at Stonehill titled, "The Impact of News of Financial Markets," in which I presented a class project titled, "Analysis of Financial Contagion in South America Following Argentinian Default." After this I became confident about doing my own financial research. I'm interested now in investing in dividend growth stalwarts for retirement. In the future, if I do research (which will most likely be related to my own financial goals) that I think others would find interesting or useful, I will post it on Seeking Alpha.
