I have been investing in stocks since 2000. Initially with very little success and in 2009 started devoting time to my stock investing education. My strategy and goals have evolved over the years and currently my main interest is in dividend investing and developing a system for income generation with option strategies. I make purchases in 4 different portfolios, Rollover401k, SpouseRothIRA, EmergencyFund, and 3rdSonPort. The goal for the Rollover401k, SpouseRothIRA, and 3rdSonPort is to purchase dividend stocks that grow their dividend and in retirement use those dividends to supplement my income. The EmergencyFund portfolio is one that I experiment with option strategies. I may use technical analysis when making purchases and evaluating the markets.
