I am a very selective, patient, long term investor. I seek opportunity in going long stocks that I feel are undervalued for a multitude of reasons. I am currently (11/11/2012) holding only two stocks that I feel are misunderstood and under-appreciated to such an extent that I believe the risk/reward prospects are quite favorable. I don't trade out of the stocks I buy (barring a fundamental change its core business) and am willing to ride them to $0 if my theories ultimately prove to be incorrect.
I managed large box retail stores for 30 years. I then retired from retail, studied for several years and opened a financial services firm. I was a registered representative for ten years and recently sold my financial services business. Core holdings: EPD, AGNCN, APTS, BIP, CII, CINR, CMO-E, CNNX, COR, CYS-B, EVA, DEA, CELG, CHCT, CII, AMGN, GMLP, GPMT, JNJ, LMT, MAIN, MPW, NEP, NEWT, NLY-F, MIC, NRZ, OHI, OTCM, PFLT, RNP, RTN, RVT, SEP, SIR, STAG, T, TCPC, TSLX, UTF, UTX, VTA, WPC, and BIF as well as QLENX. As a former Registered Rep, I now own zero mutual funds after seeing how they were destroyed in 2008. My investment goals currently are a total portfolio return of over 10%/year with an average yield of over 6%. I am now paying myself 80% of all dividend income and reinvesting 20%. I am completely retired.
