I have always managed my portfolio and retired at 55 - as it turned out I could have done it 10 years sooner, but I was worried about putting the kids through college. Anyway, I don't need to be paid anymore, I just volunteer. Investing is my only paying job. I'm very interested in passive allocation strategies oriented toward non-correlated returns. But I still play around with some of my portfolio for fun. Active investing can be an interesting game, and money is a great way to keep score. While Seeking Alpha is a potential source of investment ideas (lots of sifting required), I find it much more useful in studying behavioral finance. It's very entertaining - tragedy and comedy almost every day. I've been on SA since ~2006 - I don't know where the 2008 date comes from.

My investment strategy is largely focused on generating retirement income from dividend-paying stocks. I do not hold any professional investment licenses, but I spend a significant amount of time educating children, teenagers, and young adults on basic finance. I also specialize in cash-flow analysis for those nearing retirement or who are in retirement.

I mainly trade mean-reversion strategies, specifically in the deep value space, but my fund is unconstrained and explores the entire asset class universe, looking for unexplored and underpriced opportunities across all investible sectors.

I am an experienced individual investor who has been trading merger arbitrage stocks and options since the 90's. I am a writer with a Master of Science from Northwestern University and I truly enjoy writing articles about the stock market. I try to look for opportunities where the odds are in my favor and there is a definite edge. On Seeking Alpha my articles will aim to provide insight and favorable risk/reward for the readers.However, I am not an investment advisor so any recomendations or ideas I write about in my articles, blogs, or comments shouldn't be taken as investment advice. I recommend using my writings as a starting point to which you should add your own research or that of an investment advisor.
"Any time you make a bet with the best of it, where the odds are in your favor, you have earned something on that bet, whether you actually win or lose the bet. By the same token, when you make a bet with the worst of it, where the odds are not in your favor, you have lost something, whether you actually win or lose the bet."
