Retired, investing for over 30 years. Electrical engineer with graduate level financial training and real world experience. Owner/founder of a couple of businesses.
My investing style tends towards long-term holding periods, with some exceptions. Although I usually prefer long stock positions, I'll augment them with options at times to boost income (covered calls) or scale into a position (out of the money naked puts).
I am a retired wall street attorney. I started out specializing exclusively in securities law. As I developed my practice, it morphed into a corporate finance practice specializing in mergers and acquisitions, with the securities law aspects being secondary.
I'm not much for diversification. I tend to put a substantial amount in a few baskets and then watch those baskets very, very carefully.
