Rich Duprey

Rich has been a Fool since 1998 and writing for the site since 2004. After 20 years of patrolling the mean streets of suburbia, he hung up his badge and gun to take up a pen full time. Having made the streets safe for Truth, Justice and Krispy Kreme donuts, he now patrols the markets looking for companies he can lock up as long-term holdings in a portfolio. So follow me on Facebook and Twitter for the most important industry news in retail and consumer products and other great stories.

An Interview with TMFCop

Last updated: 2/24/2008
The Fool:
Does ethics or 'socially responsible investing' have a place in your investment approach? How so? How not?
Absolutely not! I enjoy investing in rapacious, cancer-causing, politically incorrect companies. If I could find a stock represented by the various vices in Walter Block's "Defending the Undefendable" I'd buy them all.
The Fool:
Is there a public figure that inspires you?
Hahahahahaha! I'm sorry. I shouldn't laugh. Hahahahahahaha! No really, I'm sorry.
The Fool:
What is your most distressing regret?
You mean in investing, right? Not Sally Hancock in 11th grade? Well, that would have to be waiting so long to start investing in the first place. I didn't get going until my mid- to late-30's and have so many years to make up for.
