I am an early career scientific researcher who has taken a strong interest in investing. While I invest primarily to achieve my personal financial goals, I find that doing so gives me another outlet beyond science where critical and logical thinking yield significant rewards.

My profile picture is an actual picture of me and 3 of my siblings from 1967. My youngest brother had not yet been born. I was 5, my brother was 4 and my sisters were 3 and 2.
I have been a software engineer developing applications in various fields for over 30 years. I began investing in mutual funds for my 401(k) back in 1988.I started investing outside of my retirement account a little over 17 years ago. I used to follow a value oriented strategy, but after I saw how that worked less well than I liked during the financial crisis, I began to switch over to a more income based approach.
I had always thought that dividends were important but didn't have a systematic way to evaluate stocks that paid them until I found SA and DGI. Starting around 2010, I have switched my portfolio to a DGI strategy.
One of my most profitable picks turned out to be Freddie Mac, which I originally chose because I liked the dividend and because I once worked there. When it first ran into problems I increased my holdings because it still looked like a good value to me. I eventually managed to buy several thousand shares at a cost of $0.50 (I knew that was a good value) and eventually exited the stock at a price that was $5 a share above my average share cost.
My biggest miss was when I sold out my 100 shares of Apple shortly after Steve Jobs returned but before he had done much to improve the companies outlook. You can see my holdings here https://seekingalpha.com/article/4151150-dividend-growth-portfolio-2018?source=all_articles_title
Managing seed capital in a long/short equity strategy. Will occasionally use derivatives to add or reduce leverage. Strong background in technical analysis is used as a complementary strategy to reduce risk and manage timing of entry and exit points.
As I'm a long-term investor, I'll highlight some stockpicks which will have a 5-7 year investment horizon. As I strongly believe a portfolio should consist of a mixture of dividend-paying stocks and growth stocks, my articles will reflect my thoughts on this mixture.
A regular guy (still alive from New York!) who shows how he would manage a model (not actual) portfolio for educational purposes only, my personal finances are my own business and the disclosure statement is only for the portfolio we are discussing (if an asset is held personally, I will note that in the disclosure). I give absolutely no advice, and only offer suggestions on how I could manage a portfolio. My personal portfolio and finances can change at any time, which has nothing to do with the educational value of any article.
The main reason for a subscriber to "Follow" me, especially for the model portfolios (TARP or otherwise), is to glean some knowledge to become a better investor and not simply place bets. Money management is every bit as important as any other aspect of investing, and by following a portfolio and the actions taken, you can gain some insight into a somewhat higher level of investing acumen. There are no requirements, and this is not "rocket science" - it is simply a powerful way for you to put the money you have worked hard for to work even harder for you. My message will be consistent, and my hope by doing this is to share my own experiences, illustrated in the model mock portfolios I build exclusively for Seeking Alpha. Knowledge is power, and many folks shy away from the investing world because that very world makes it more confusing each and every day in an effort to sell you something: stock picks, technical strategies, books, videos, subscriptions with "secret ideas," gadgets, and even snake oil. My promise to you is that my work here will remain free to all of my followers, with the hope of giving to you some of the things that took years for me to learn myself.
I am an individual investor and focus on investing in dividend-paying and dividend-growing stocks with a long-term horizon. In addition to a DGI portfolio, I manage and invest in a couple of high-income portfolios as well as some Risk-adjusted Rotation Strategies. I believe "Passive Income" is what makes you 'Financially Free'. My personal goal is to generate at least 50% of my retirement income from dividends and rest from other investments like real-estate (rental) etc. I have been investing for the last 25 years and consider myself an experienced investor. I plan to share my experiences by way of writing two or three articles a month and also share my portfolio strategy.

I am an individual investor and have been investing part-time for the better part of the past 20 years. I am primarily interested in fundamental analysis, focus on the long term and my portfolio is composed primarily of dividend paying equities. I have a moderate risk profile and I look for growth and value. My passion for finance and the markets have let me to my MBA and writing for Seeking Alpha, Stocktrades and Motley Fool.

You'll never see me write a long bio listing all of my credentials and degrees or refer to myself in the third person. I love discussing ideas and I appreciate it when people can play devil's advocate without resorting to personal attacks. In short, I employ a long-only, long-horizon, focused value style, guided by thorough bottom-up research and backed by years of accounting and finance experience. When people ask me "what do you do?" I assume they mean for fun.
I am currently a portfolio manager at an RIA in Philadelphia with over $1 billion in assets. The portfolio is dedicated towards macro themed positioning with equities, ETFs, fixed income, as well as options and other alternatives. There are opportunities everywhere, both on the long and short side, and I aim to generate absolute returns on an annualized basis for clients. My absolute return portfolio has returned double-digit percentage returns over the last decade regardless of if the market is selling off, or rallying higher with enthusiasm. Relative returns are nice, but at the end of the day, you can't eat relative returns. When the S&P 500 is down 20%, it doesn't necessarily mean you have to be down too. Join my Marketplace service, Absolute Returns, and see how I am positioning my portfolio in real-time, and what trade ideas are coming about daily. I also offer a live chat as part of the service, where questions and ideas can be discussed.

Regarding me, the one who writes on Seeking Alpha, I have been interested in finance since I was a little more than a kid and I started investing right after high school. After a few working experiences at several companies, including some multi-billion dollars multinationals, and some life-changing events, I felt my career needed a change too. I decided to switch to the investing industry, so that I could do what I really love. Bachelor's degree in Business Economics, Master in Finance. I work as an independent analyst in the equity space, servicing buy-side institutions, mainly in Continental Europe.
I am constantly looking for opportunities with asymmetric risk/reward in the stock space, including GARP plays, value, and short selling. Growth investing? Yes, and I am pretty good with that, but without crystal balls.
For any purpose, you can message me here on Seeking Alpha or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a value focused investor. Stocks rise and fall for many different reasons that we often cannot predict. Eventually, it is those companies with a wide moat and the ability to generate cash flow that prevail. Therefore, my investment focus is to find value stocks that are able to generate cash flow, with sustainable dividends and provide growth over time. I focus my attention on analyzing large-capped dividend growth stocks, REITs and ETFs. I aim at providing a quarterly update and insights on stocks I follow. Please feel free to browse the articles that I wrote and provide any comments.

I have been investing over the past several years and building my nest egg with my Roth IRA and Roth 403b, Time is my best friend - and I have more than most. I look at long-term investing with the mindset of where the stock will be in 3+ years from when I buy. My investments vary by sector from REITs to banking and energy.
I typically focus on dividend growth investing, but also like to look for opportunities with growth stocks who are valued on short term headwinds and not long term potential.
I dabble in options rarely, and only when I see a substantial opportunity. I do not consider trading options a core principle in my investing practices. If you are a dividend growth investor, can stand my poor grammar (I'll admit it's not the best), and want some long-term ideas, feel free to follow me on this site.
I'm a self-directed investor who shares my experience in investing. I read, learn, and apply every day.
I write about value, dividend, and growth investing from the perspective of a Canadian. I invest in individual stocks on the US stock exchanges and the Toronto Stock Exchange.
I also offer an exclusive Marketplace service, DGI Across North America, which updates the buy targets of quality U.S. and Canadian dividend-growth stocks every month.
My preference and specialty is trading in momentum or break-out equities mostly from the Russell 2000 where the pickens are greater and more frequent. I hardwire into stocks that have moved above their 50 day EMA and broken through the 50 RSI. I will also utilize certain indicators such as +DMI crossing over -DMI, as well as their resulting child, ADX, which I like above 40.
