I have canceled my republication agreement with Seeking Alpha. Look for my future articles at http://altenergystocks.com. Tom Konrad, PhD., CFA is a portfolio manager, financial analyst, and freelance writer specializing in renewable energy and energy efficiency. He is currently looking for a money management firm to sponsor what he believes would be the first dividend income oriented green mutual fund, based on a strategy, the Green Global Equity Income Portfolio, he has been managing since December 2013. He is Editor at AltEnergyStocks.com. Tom lives in New York's lower Hudson River Valley. He volunteers for the environmental nonprofit community, runs, and is a woodworker. He's currently using those woodworking skills to renovate (and upgrade the energy performance) of the 1930 farmhouse he lives in with his wife. He can be reached at tom at tom konrad dot com.
Astute student of value investing with a focus on dividend growth. Doing my homework and learning something new everyday. You can't acquire much more than miniscule knowledge of what this vast investing universe is all about, but you can learn what works for your own situation.
I have a BBA in finance and accounting from James Madison University and have been investing in individual stocks for over 10 years. I would characterize my strategy as a concentrated income-focused portfolio with a small portion allocated to divergent selections. These selections are designed to hedge volatility and increase exposure to small/mid capitalization stocks with non-business cycle growth potential.
Just an ordinary retired guy. Worked thirty plus years for a Class I railroad as a financial analyst in the Engineering Department. Living on social security (or in my case RR Retirement) will not support my lifestyle, so investing demands profits to make up the difference.
Married. Two boys both married.
