Retired former office manager at Kidder, Peabody. I do my own research using SA, Yahoo Finance, Tickerspy, Forbes, Barron's CNBC and numerous individuals whom I call my Guru's. I am at my desk 6-7 hours daily M-F searching for new ideas and charting the 30 stocks that I follow. I seldom day trade unless I get lucky but normally initiate new positions and close existing ones daily. I do not buy options but frequently sell naked puts in stocks I know and follow. I am not greedy and view it as getting paid to buy a stock that I follow at a price below the market price.
