An Interview with qazulight

Last updated: 9/14/2012
The Fool:
What is your favorite techno gadget?
My Iphone. Its funny I have not invested in Apple, but if I were going to buy a high priced stock it would probably not be Apple but Google. Maybe and Android X is in my future.
The Fool:
Is there a public figure that inspires you?
The Fool:
Briefly explain how you select stocks.
I used to use Macro Economics to find sectors then use my Broker to ferret out stock, but now I am in cash until I can trade. However, I am also moving my 401k into dollar cost averaging mode and investing in broad U.S. based stocks with world wide exposure.
