An Interview with TMFAeassa

Last updated: 12/30/2013
The Fool:
How'd you find out about the Fool? (Make your answer as colorful and truthful as possible.)
TMFAeassa:
Yahoo! Finance and Google Finance news sections.
The Fool:
What's the most overrated idea, person, or event in our culture?
TMFAeassa:
Hmm...once-upon-a-time I'd probably say Steve Jobs/Apple, but I've grown to respect both immensely. I'm going to go with Miley Cyrus on this one.
The Fool:
What's been your best investment to date, and how did you discover it?
TMFAeassa:
FSI International. I found it as I was sifting through the semiconductor equipment vendors looking for a bargain. This thing was dirt cheap, and apparently Tokyo Electron agreed with me as it bought the company just a few weeks after I went long.
