I am a self-taught individual investor and I have been investing in stocks for close to 20 years. My educational background and my work experience focuses on engineering and science. That background taught me to be methodical and patient in investing. I do not have formal investment training but acquired knowledge through experience and reading. I have made money and lost money in the stock market. No one is right 100% of the time. Hence, I have learned the hard way about considering and managing risk exposure through diversification and allocation.
I focus on dividend growth investing with a long-term horizon since I believe in the compounding power of dividend growth investing to build wealth. I generally look for undervalued large cap stocks with sustainable dividend growth and capital appreciation potential. The concept is simple and does not require rapid trading or real-time data. However, DGI does require patience and time to work. I do invest in tech like most small investors, and also special situation stocks. But I tend to write mostly about dividend growth stocks on this blog. I also believe in the Financial Independence Retire Early or ‘FIRE’ movement. I think that dividend growth investing can be a component of that.
