I am the Chief Investment Officer of Sungarden Fund Management, the subadvisor to a long-short mutual fund (DNDHX) and the founder of Sungarden Investment Research, an investment management and equity research firm. Over the past three decades, I have managed daily liquid portfolios through diverse market conditions. I created several investment strategies, including the Sungarden Hedged Dividend portfolio, an alternative approach to the pursuit of income, preservation and long-term growth. I have authored two books and hundreds of articles on investing. I can be followed on Twitter @robisbitts, and my website is www.sungardeninvestment.com.
