I solve problems. My interests include private equity, long/short equity trades, complex option strategies, and risk management. I am particularity fond of seeking arbitrage opportunities and maximizing the efficiency of the risk versus reward payoff paradigm.
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.

US Major Gen. Benjamin Butler's monument so reads. "the true touchstone of civil liberty is not that all men are equal but that every man has the right to be the equal of every
other man - if he can."

GOD Bless the USA! GOD Bless you too!
I am now in retirement so looking for stable income with higher yielding investments. That generally means investments with yields over 6%. The majority of my list includes Preferred Stocks, Baby Bonds, BDC, CEF, MLP and REITS. I try to buy and hold for the long term, and do my best to be patient in the face of a troubling market (I find that to be easier if I own strong stocks). I also try to buy low and to welcome a drop in the market so I can take advantage of lower prices and higher yields.
I am working on developing an excel program on preferred stocks and ETD securities to provide information on many of the metrics that analysts discuss, but few understand or have access to. That includes dividend payout ratios for common and preferred that are based on EPS, FFO, AFFO, NII, CAFD and other non gaap metrics. To do this, I have to review all company statements to determine their earnings and cash flow metrics as not available on other data gathering websites (that I am aware of).
I am a dynamic figure, often seen scaling glacier walls and hang gliding off tall buildings to survey the best urban party spots. I can ride my bicycle up almost any incline without slowing down—the laws of physics do not apply to me. I am a talented academic, but absent-minded: I once figured out the meaning of life, but forgot to write it down. Although not a commercial success, my book “What Your Orchestra Teacher Never Told You About Double Reed Technique: The Oboe and Bassoon Player’s Guide to Dating Beautiful Women” drew enthusiastic praise from both sexes.
