Retired from IBM. Always looking for ways to protect wealth. Skeptical of governments, government statistics, and the FED. I am warming up to hard assets more and more. A non believer in 'buy & hold'. Sticking to ETF's with small amounts, not being greedy by trying to hit home runs. I am happy to hit lots of singles, 7%-10% and I'm gone. I've adjusted to siting on cash until something on my watch list looks good. I buy and sell the same ETF's so I can have a feel for how they oscillate.
Let me give you some numbers about the US Economy :
Domestic debt at 400% of GDP 70%of the Economy is Consumption based with borrowed money , Now you understand why I am bearish ....I let you imagine the outcome of this debt based casino economy ....join me on my blogs meanwhile :
My investment interests include small and microcap Biotech stocks with a focus on oncology. I worked for several years as a lab manager and research associate at UCSF Cancer Center in a lab focused on sequencing and assembling tumor genomes, array CGH of intermediate grade prostate tumors, and functional analysis of the oncogenic transcription factor ZNF217. During that time I attended as many talks and lectures as time would allow and read as many papers as possible in the course of investigating possible gene targets in regions of interest from aCGH data.
I have BS in biology and a masters degree in Health services administration.
