An Interview with XMFCane

Last updated: 10/8/2013
The Fool:
What's been your best investment to date, and how did you discover it?
University schooling. A cliché answer, but college opens up so many doors for the long term. Even with skyrocketing tuition costs, college is still a great investment for anybody who wants a great start in their career.
The Fool:
Do you have a favorite company or stock which the worldwide Foolish community should know about -- and why?
SpaceX, because I'm still waiting for my Star Destroyer.

How I Invest

Everything in moderation. Even moderation.
