My financial security has come largely from the equity markets, and I think that my interest in public policy has given focus and direction to my investment decisions.

As part of my active participation in the worldwide markets I research and analyze small and mid cap stocks with a unique earnings growth opportunity. I favor growth stories over buy-and-hold value investments, typically ones with a convincing story and sales and market share growth to prove it. I also cover a long-only portfolio geared towards the younger generation's investment apatite and cover important events and breaking news on stock I cover.

I'm an Army veteran and former energy dividend writer for The Motley Fool. My goal is to help all people learn how to harness the awesome power of dividend growth investing to achieve their financial dreams, and enrich their lives. With 22 years of investing experience, I've learned what works and more importantly, what doesn't, when it comes to building long-term wealth and income streams. I'm currently on an epic quest to build a broadly diversified, high-quality, high-yield dividend growth portfolio that:
1. Pays 5% to 6% yield
2. Offers 6% to 7% annual dividend growth
3. Pays dividends AT LEAST on a weekly, but preferably, daily basis
2016 returns: 22.40%
2017 returns: 22.05%
The REIT Forum is in the top 1% on TipRanks: http://bit.ly/cwmftip
The REIT Forum focuses on risk-adjusted returns with a defensive strategy. With a strong background in accounting and finance, fundamentals are a top priority. Buying a strong company with great fundamentals at an attractive price is a good long-term strategy. The subscription platform allows me to do a few things very well. It allows me to share the research I’m doing for my own investment decision making. It allows me to communicate rapidly with investors that are willing to pay for my best work.
The REIT Forum includes:
Subscriber only – Extensive research (thousands of articles) on 50+ companies, buy targets, and forward looking analysis.
Subscriber only - Weekly articles comparing 50+ preferred shares and finding the best opportunities. Preferred shares offer investors high yields with relatively lower risk.
Subscriber only - Analysis and updates on the REIT sectors. This includes finding the best investments within a subsector.
Subscriber only – Risk ratings and dividend sustainability research.
What is my view on risk?
The traditional view is to see earning excess returns as compensation for taking on high levels of risk. I believe it is far better to focus on earning returns from catching market failures. These failures happen due to poor liquidity and investors (including analysts) working with incomplete information. I believe that by knowing the individual companies well, the investor can step in when the “risk” is heavily skewed in favor of “returns”.
I do not try to generate higher returns, I try to generate more consistent returns by reducing the downwards risk. Occasionally that results in exceptionally high returns when something corrects, but it also means I am willing to pass on several decent opportunities because I want the risk/return profile skewed heavily in my favor.
