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

I am a student of history, particularly military and economic/market history. The intellectual passions of my retirement years have been markets, mathematics, and quantum theory. Recently I have found myself reading book after book on the thoughts and feelings of animals, and I believe they are subtly influencing some of my views. I have a cat I like a lot. I like to travel.

Seven Corners Capital Management, LLC is an investment research and advisory firm based in New York City. The firm aims to achieve investment returns by identifying (1) companies with wide competitive moats and honest and able management, trading at reasonable valuations, (2) turnaround and "asset play" opportunities (as described by Peter Lynch in his book "One Up on Wall Street") and (3) special situations (such as mergers, spinoffs and liquidations) that provide attractive returns which are non-correlated to the broader equity markets. Our hope and expectation is to achieve annual returns approximately 10% above that of the S&P 500 on a long-term basis.

Over 35 years of investing in individual stocks. Extensive business experience with small to mid-size companies, including as CEO. Many hundreds of blog posts on financial and economic matters since 2008. Focus on value with catalysts for upside price action; and biotech. Background as a physician and pharmaceutical inventor and entrepreneur.
Engineer and physicist with academic and industry experience. I crunch numbers because for all of the speculation, intuition, emotion, and debate, there is something a bit more concrete and dependable about cold hard facts supported by equations no one can dispute and peer-reviewed sources no one can fault.
I exist. I have an MBA ( UT El Paso, it is not Ivy League ). So I understand what is happening in the business world.
Markets are efficient. If a stock is too high, it gets shorted and price comes down. If a stock is too low, it is bought out and the price goes up. Nothing magical, just hard core risk analysis. If an organization is managed properly, then the employees are happy and nobody leaves. If an organization is not manged properly, then they always have hiring now signs. I would love to work for Tesla.
Many years ago I worked for Walgreens as a photo technician. One small problem, I am color blind. The company does not test people for color blindness like the US Military does for pilots. Walgreens simply was interested in knowing if I could count change and pass a drug test. My color perception was never asked of me. So that, is the quality of people who are working in Corporate America. If your photo technician is color blind like me, what about the people working in the Pharmacy? The thought should make you shudder. I worked for 18 months developing photos that I had no idea if they were good or not. I did everything else perfect in the lab as well as customer service. One day, I could no longer take the stress, of not knowing if the photos were any good, and I asked to no longer work in the photo lab. The entire store management was in a state of shock, and the Head Photo Technician was terrified. When I left the photo lab, the lab went down the drain. You mean the "Color Blind" photo technician was keeping the place together? And it was such a relief not to work there anymore.
Currently I have no job and I am not stressed out. Moral of the story, Corporate America is stupid in that the most important aspect of a job is never the main reason someone is hired to do that job. Walgreens is an Iconic American Company. What abut GM, Ford, Mc Donalds, Union Pacific Railroad, etc. There are a lot of idiots out there and you are putting your life in their hands. With me if was only your photos.
Now you wonder why I chose Nikola Tesla as the photo for my picture. I am invested in Tesla all the way. Read the story of his life on Wikipedia. He was treated like garbage by a lot of people, then a few smart people with big bucks, backed him up. Tesla had the last laugh.

Hi! I'm retired on disability and trying to grow an inheritance that my father left me. This year stocks and bonds both seem overpriced to me compared to commodities, so I'm long gold and palladium. Part of my portfolio I speculate with in TSLA or ETFs or hold in cash.
My career was in computer programming and I still like to keep up with tech developments. My family owned a car dealership so I also know a fair amount about the auto industry.
