An Interview with stockdissector

Last updated: 6/11/2014
The Fool:
What was your first educational exposure to investing?
stockdissector:
My uncle who was a Winn-Dixie store manager introduced me to the world of stock market investing.
The Fool:
Tell us about Your Dumbest Investment... and the lesson you learned from it.
stockdissector:
American Eagle Outfitters...competition is bad for a company. Pick companies with wide moats and few competitors.
The Fool:
Do you have a favorite company or stock which the worldwide Foolish community should know about -- and why?
stockdissector:
Union Pacific. The company sits behind a wide moat, provides a crucial service in commerce and competes with only one major railroad in the North American west. I forgot to mention its diverse revenue stream.
