An Interview with TMFDelBoy

Last updated: 2/18/2019
The Fool:
To what extent has your financial success, or lack thereof, been the result of luck versus skill?
TMFDelBoy:
Good question, mainly skill, but in terms of timing there's always a little luck in investing.

My Story

I work as an editor and investment writer for The Motley Fool Australia.

How I Invest

Founder led businesses generally. As I am looking long term I generally like growth stocks, preferably double digit. As a buyer I don't worry about price too much, but growth at a discount is what I favour. I also only focus on high quality companies, i.e. little to no debt, strong track records, products, pricing power, and preferably founder led. This probably rules out about 90% of the companies available on any given share market but I think that's a good thing.
