I am a retired industrial research chemist. I enjoy managing my portfolio on a daily basis using my experience gained in that profession and useful information I learn here at SA. My hobbies include gardening, fishing, woodworking, stained glass, and jewelry making.
carefully investing but more often investigating; have had 6 decades of remembered losses in both public markets and private placements. Still a board member of a newsworthy nonprofit; still holding shares in companies seeded long ago but not yet having reached their investor exits. Trying to be thoughtful about investments and enjoying the experience. Becoming less current all the time, likely you can only be finding me a doddering old fuddy duddy for what I post here.
Just a small time private investor that is currently investing in oil & gas related energy names. Both from Canada and the US. Since I cannot generate enough in dividends from Canadian producers anymore, and now that I am retired, I'm having to invest much more in the Permian in order to find any names worth owning for growth. Subscribing member to HFI Research, and The Upstream Oil Hub, and enjoying what we get to learn there. (updated on 6/29/2017)
