Matt Koppenheffer joined The Motley Fool as a contributing writer in 2006, but he has been capitalizing the “F” in Foolish since the NYSE still listed AOL (and hearing the name Lucent didn’t make his stomach turn). If Matt isn’t writing, eating, or sleeping, it’s very likely that you can find him researching the next stock to add to his CAPS portfolio.
Prior to joining the Fool, Matt did time at a private equity firm and played an investment banker at a tech-focused investment bank. He’s also sold Cisco networking equipment, served pizzas, caulked windows, designed websites, and programmed database applications -- but who’s keeping track?
When it comes to investing, Matt has learned that low valuations are one key ingredient for success, but are best when combined with a great business. He is an unabashed fan of Warren Buffett, and he knows that a stock is a piece of a company, not just a piece of paper.
