Retired from engineering/management since 1997. Largely biotech, but some other stocks and real estate investor for over 25 years. Enjoy skiing, sailing, sports. I enjoy the role of Devil's Advocate, so some of what I say may be to provoke discussion, and may not reflect my actual opinion.
I'm currently undergoing treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. I had planed to be skiing now, but sometimes life gets in the way of your plans. While I'm confident of achieving remission, I intend to be very critical of the FDA for the way drug testing is done. I'm strongly in favor of streamlining the clinical trial process, especially when related to drugs for potentially terminal diseases. I am scheduled for stem cell transplantation late this month (4/15).

John Hodge is an active trader who follows the technology/biotech sector specifically. I have been successfully trading stocks for the last 16 years and still thank those that pointed me in the direction of Qualcomm and Amgen many years ago. I believe research and timing is the key to long term goal attainment in the market.
