Investing is an art, not a science.
It requires with PATIENCE, DISCIPLINE and GUTS.
FORTUNE favors the BOLD.
We should take a RISK, life is a RISK (not gamble), MONEY( aka oxygen of life) set us free (financially).
I consider DEBTORS are lower on the financial food chain. DEBTORS have less POWER, less PRESTIGE, less PRIVILEGE and less PROSPERITY. Being FREE of DEBT, whatever kind, makes you FREE. You will always Sleep Well At Night (SWAN), knowing you are beholden to no one, and no one
has the POWER controlled over you.
CEFs, for predictable monthly and quarterly incomes; Distressed Prefers and Bonds, for fixed incomes: and 15% cash for OPPORTUNISTIC swing trades or SPECIAL situations for CAPITAL gains or VALUE appreciations. In the case of the latter, I invest with extreme caution and trust my own INSTINCTS: Knowing when to own, when to hold, when to fold and when to book.
Let me make it very clear: We all have our dreams, investing in our beautiful dreams can be very risky, tricky, hazardous, arduous, heartache, gut-wrenching, sleepless, dilemma or nightmare, never investing in anything if we cannot afford to lose. So let our dreams begin.....
Considering myself as Finance enthusiast, I'm investing on stocks since 3 years by using a value approach and by following famous Warren Buffett's piece of advice: "It's far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price than a fair company at a wonderful price."

I began my investment career as a portfolio manager in 1972 with Western Bancorporation in Los Angeles (name changed to First Interstate Bancorp, now part of Wells Fargo). After nine years in banking, I became Vice-President Institutional Bond Sales as Merrill Lynch in San Francisco, with the major West Coast banks as clients,. later at L.F. Rothschild. I then returned to the 'buy' side in 1987 - not long before the crash as an institutional cash management portfolio manager with BAIMCO. In 1990, I joined Wentworth, Hauser, and Violich as cash manager and later as bond manager and co-head of Fixed Income, leaving in 2004 to start my own firm, TBD Capital LLC, which I operated for 10 years, as a registered investment advisor. In 2014, I terminated my RIA registration to focus on consulting and creating a new blog on wine, traderbillonwine.com, published bi-monthly, which will hopefully lead to a book. For the past ten years, over 1,600 posts, I have published my blog daily at traderbill.com, which is dormant at this time. I am currently writing a book, Wine and Passion and have a wine blog: www.traderbillonwine.com
Just another unsophisticated retail investor. Goal: absorb some alpha rays by learning from the smart people that hang out here, and to share what little I know. My investment interests are retirement, retirement, retirement, income, value, momentum, dividend growth, merger-arb, and any other strategy that I can get my head around. (Did I mention retirement?) I also play bass, write code and an occasional short story. My wife and I and enjoy kayaking, camping and other outdoor pursuits down here in South Florida.

I am retired from government service after a career in administration and computer management, most of it spent overseas. My academic background includes a master's degree in computer science. I have over 30 years investment experience. Since my retirement I have become a more active trader in both stocks and options. My major strategy for gradual profits has been to buy solid stocks (mostly tech sector) in trading ranges, and then to sell one month covered calls. I also sell at-the-money short puts on beaten down stocks. Using real-time quotes and charts, I make occasional trades based upon price or volume acceleration. I do most of my short-term trading in an IRA, which reduces record keeping and defers taxes. My goal is eventually to generate enough profits to permit significant philanthropy. An alternative would be to work for a charitable or philanthropic organization, which I am considering.

I seek understanding in everything but economics, markets and investing are where my mind is most at ease. In this I am forever doing research in my quest for answers. I do view the world from many different angles. Understanding economic behavioural patterns are important to me. Strategic investing over the medium to longer term is predominantly my focus when I contemplate my research or philosophies. I have a compulsion to express my thoughts in ordered form and my essays are the result of such expressions.
I'm an economist by training, a financial engineer by talent, a banker by profession, a trader by interest and a father by chance.

I am a retired Electrical Engineer since 2012 and a Registered Financial Consultant (RFC) since 2010. I have been investing in equities, in the form of stocks & options, since the early 80’s and more recently in mutual funds, and ETF’s.
My current investments consist of a DGI, 10 stock portfolio +7 ETF portfolio for my supplemental retirement income and a second portfolio of mutual funds, ETF’s, & stocks primarily focused on growth. This is how I keep my income strategy separate from my growth strategy.
My passion is to reach young and old investors alike who are apprehensive about investing their money in the market and show them that investing does not have to be complicated, but you do need to spend a little time at it, but with the proper tools this can be made relatively easy.
Everyone needs to come up with a strategy that works for them, and I do not claim my strategies will work for everyone (or anyone other than myself,) but offer them merely as something to consider.
