I am a start-up entrepreneur whose primary interest is in internet and technology stocks. I tend to hold positions in only a few stocks and hold on to them for some time. As Warren Buffet said "I am a better investor because I am a businessman and I am a better businessman because I am an investor"
I am a former research chemist by trade and an Austrian Economist by study and a market analyst by choice. For the past four years I have been a Senior Financial Editor with Newsmax Media publishing my thoughts on where markets, central banks, gold and geopolitics meet and explode.
I am now the publisher of Gold, Goats n' Guns, a monthly newsletter offered through Patreon.
I have been an investor and market analyst for more seventeen years and am an astute observer in changes within the culture and the political landscape.

PhD scientist by training, engineer by inclination. Retired more than 10 years ago as VP of S&P500 company that most have never heard of, but nearly everyone benefits from one or more of their products or services every day. Market investor for more than 40 years. Have tried everything from "invest in what you know" to blue chips to OTC to day trading & back. Have had plenty of losers, a few 100%, but enough winners to net positive in each approach overall. But the real money that I've been lucky enough to gain has come from a few good growing companies that I've held for years. Most financial "experts" would call my portfolio a disaster waiting to happen. But it has worked for me, and for the decade that I've been tracking the relationship, it's managed to outperform the S&P500 while keeping enough in cash to cover 5+ years potential drawdown if needed. My portfolio has rarely had any overlap with that of the Oracle of Omaha. But in addition to being midwesterners, I do have one other thing in common with the world's greatest investor - my favorite holding period is forever.

Mark's mutual fund is launching December 15, 2011.
He is a self taught private investor who operates the website Fund My Mutual Fund (http://fundmymutualfund.com); a daily mix of market, economic, and stock specific commentary. Fascinated by the market since an early age, he discovered mutual funds as a teenager in the 80s and moved to equities by the mid 90s. The origin of the website is/was to leverage the power of the internet in developing a transparent track record to attract investors for his potential "long/short" mutual fund.
His equity focus is identifying secular growth trends and the companies most likely to benefit from these macro trends. Stocks are identified through fundamental analysis, although basic technical analysis is used in determining entry and exit points.

I write about dividend growth stocks on my website http://www.dividendgrowthinvestor.com/. I am mostly a buyer of high quality dividend stocks, with solid competitive advantages. My holding period is forever, as long as the dividend is at least maintained. I tend to concentrate my efforts on stocks which grow earnings and dividends, which provides outstanding total returns over time. I only focus my attention to stocks with sustainable dividend payments. I am also a firm believer in diversification accross sectors and geographic locations. I have been focusing my attention particularly to companies that regularly increase dividends to their shareholders since 2007. On my blog I share my thoughts on investing in dividend paying stocks that have consistently increased their payments over time and tips on growing my dividend income. I hope that my blog will serve as an inspiration for my readers and that it would change their financial lives for the better.
