The Fool: Did you ever do something as a child that you look back on now and say, 'Wow, I'm lucky even to be alive after that!'
dugganwayne: Seems like every kid gets into some crazy shenanigans that almost get them killed at some point, haha. Like when I was a rambunctious little boy and somehow managed to contract the Zaire strain of Ebola.
The Fool: Does ethics or 'socially responsible investing' have a place in your investment approach? How so? How not?
dugganwayne: I would love to be able to profit off of trades that somehow benefit society as a whole. That's something I will certainly look into... once I make my first million.
The Fool: What was the most significant discovery of the last century?
dugganwayne: I'd say it's a tie between antibiotics and Ryan Seacrest.
The Fool: What was your first educational exposure to investing?
dugganwayne: I read a biography of Warren Buffett, and I realized that most of his investment techniques were techniques that I already used in my own life. Except he was buying and selling stocks, and I was buying and selling organs on the black market. So I guess the biggest lesson I learned from Warren Buffett was to switch from organs to stocks.
The Fool: What's been your best investment to date, and how did you discover it?
dugganwayne: Back in the spring of 2009 when it seemed like the whole economy was collapsing, I figured one of two things would happen: either the big banks would fail, the economy would collapse, and the money sitting in my savings account would wind up being worthless anyway, or the economy and the banks would find a way to recover to some extent and life would carry on. So I bought Bank of America at $4.96 in Feb of 2009 and sold it about two months later at $11.
The Fool: Do you have a favorite company or stock which the worldwide Foolish community should know about -- and why?
dugganwayne: My favorite stock is Melco Crown Entertainment (NASDAQ: MPEL). Back in 2009 I wanted to diversify my portfolio internationally, and I've always thought of casinos as money-generating machines, so I bought Melco at $4.36 and haven't sold a single share since.
