An Interview with scott81236

Last updated: 6/7/2014
The Fool:
If you could be the CEO of any public company, which one and why?
scott81236:
It would have to be Chipotle. Aside from being there all the time anyway, I'm a huge fan of the restaurant model and would be excited to develop restaurants based on other cuisines -- BBQ, for example.
The Fool:
What's been your best investment to date, and how did you discover it?
scott81236:
Inovio Pharmaceuticals. I discovered it on a financial website, and after researching it for a while, I decided to take a small position.
