An Interview with TMFBreakerJava

Last updated: 1/29/2011
The Fool:
What industry do you follow most closely and why?
TMFBreakerJava:
I follow medical devices and cloud companies both because I find the domain interesting and because it seems to be a current focus of disruptive ideas and technologies.
The Fool:
How do you define success?
TMFBreakerJava:
Lively family, interesting work, lifelong learning, a chance to slow down and give back eventually...
The Fool:
Make a confession.
TMFBreakerJava:
I bought March 2006 CKCM $30 calls, doubled down twice and lost my entire investment. I was SO SURE that the stock would spike after earnings.
