An Interview with TMFShakespeare
Last updated: 6/11/2009
What is your favorite techno gadget?
My iPhone. I use it for everything that there is an app for, (and there is an app for everything). I have no idea how I got by before I had an iPhone.
What's been your best investment to date, and how did you discover it?
BOLT is in the marine seismic business, not really a company I'd know about, but it came as a recommendation in CAPS, I cross-checked it by the points laid out in the Million Dollar Portfolio book and decided to buy. It's a two-bagger since.
Do you have a favorite company or stock which the worldwide Foolish community should know about -- and why?
I have made about 80 cents (total) on Disney (DIS) since I bought it in 2001, but it doesn't matter, I will always hold that because I am a huge Disney fan and I take pride in just being a shareholder.
