I am an independent equity research analyst with a very heavy quant focus and hold an MBA degree in finance from a leading business school. During the day, I work as a finance and strategy manager in an IT major. Previously, I was part of the business strategy and corporate development team at a leading manufacturing company. For my personal investments, I follow the GARP approach with contrarian tendencies. My investment decisions are made based on fundamental analysis and I believe in socially responsible investing.
62 year old male waiting for the end of 2015 to retire. Working in the Middle-East in oil/gas on a rotation basis. Investment interest is in retirement income (but, generating revenue for that until I retire). I appreciate capital returns as much as anyone, but plan to live off of the dividends that stocks provide. Hopefully, I can increase the capital somewhat to provide more dividends for better living. I like MLP's, mREIT's, REIT's, BDC's for high yield and am very interested in other methods of increasing yields (covered calls).
