Investing Expertise

My Area of Expertise:
Being an engineer, I suppose I know a thing or two about technology. But I find the fact that I worked in a technology company for 34 years has been most beneficial in understanding the strengths and weaknesses of companies and how they are managed. I started investing in individual stocks in 1967 with money from my paper route, matched by my father. I've been invested in equities continually since then. I've listened to a lot of conference calls and read a lot of SEC filings.
Greatest Investment:
Worst Investment:
Whatever it was, I've blotted it out from my memory by now.
