I invest with passion and conviction, and I have the strength to stick with an investment until my thesis plays out, hence "Courage & Conviction Investing." My greatest gift is a rare ability to synthesize public information on a stock to formulate conclusions the market hasn't even considered. I share this unique skill with subscribers to my Marketplace service, Market Adventures. High-conviction investing isn't for everyone, but if you're in the market to make serious money and you have an insatiable appetite for risk, and you're willing to wait patiently for potentially big gains, then Market Adventures might be the right fit for you.
“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” (Author - Patanjali)
“Tentative efforts lead to tentative outcomes. Therefore, give yourself fully to your endeavors. Decide to construct your character through excellent actions and determine to pay the price of a worthy goal. The trials you encounter will introduce you to your strengths. Remain steadfast...and one day you will build something that endures: something worthy of your potential.” (Author - Epictetus)
"Hope sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible." (Author - Unknown)
"When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say, 'I used everything you gave me." (Author - Erma Bombeck)
I was Grisly_Atoms. But then SA invited me to become an author for them! I was honored, and agreed. Then, they advised that "Grisly_Atoms" was too far afield from investing, and asked if I would consider a name change. So now I am "Dividend Latitude".
I chose the name in honor of my portfolio, which I call "The Latitude Portfolio". My dream is that not only will it give me financial latitude in life, but will allow me to enjoy time at tropical latitudes around the globe.
For the investing part, I am focused on achieving financial independence through a two-part strategy of dividend growth and biotechnology speculation.
My dividend growth stocks at the moment are: ADP, APD, CSVI, D, GPC, ITW, JNJ, MDT, MMM, MO, PM, RDS.B, SNX, T, TD, WTR
My watch list is MKC & AWK
I used to own PH but redeployed that capital into APD, increasing my yield 80%
The former German asset and fund manager started his banking carreer in 1977, when the stock advisor was happy by a weekly stock gain of 5 pennies which weren't lost in the following week. I intensively watched the crashes 1987, 1997 (Long Term Credit Bank), 2000 (tech bubble) and my bank was hedged on the 9/11 through my intervention.
Having earned a lot by investing on 19th Jan, 2016 in the oil market, I have realized the profits and will carefully monitor the commodities in 2018.
Concerning the stock markets I prefer a balanced long/short strategy in 2018.
