An Interview with gdf55

Last updated: 12/9/2010
The Fool:
Make a confession.
gdf55:
I'm becoming a YouTube junkie.
The Fool:
What's the best product you use that most people don't know about?
gdf55:
Tempur-Pedic. Best mattress sets in the world. And their advertising budget is very small compared to the others.
The Fool:
What's been your best investment to date, and how did you discover it?
gdf55:
Netflix, recommended by Motley Fool Stock Advisor, is my best investment in terms of dollars. Tempur-Pedic (TPX), my own pick, is the best so far in percentage gains.
