An Interview with TMFbelle

Last updated: 7/16/2014
The Fool:
How'd you find out about the Fool? (Make your answer as colorful and truthful as possible.)
TMFbelle:
My passion for finance, which started several years ago, led me to seek information on the internet about everything and anything I could find related to finance & investing. Not a surprise I came across several articles from the Fool and have been a fan ever since. Prior to that, I also grew up during an era (the '90s) were AOL dominated the world. Hence, I may have come across the fool during those times but probably had no clue what it was! Thankfully that changed.
The Fool:
What's the most overrated idea, person, or event in our culture?
TMFbelle:
Kim Kardashian.
The Fool:
Briefly explain how you select stocks.
TMFbelle:
I ask myself this questions:

1. Is it a strong brand/icon? do I see this company being around several years from now (preferably generations)? Has it successfully been around for a very, very long time?

2. Does it pay dividends? (I consider myself dividend obsessed).

3. Financials: Revenue? debt? P/E?

4. Psychology: Is it a product people absolutely LOVE? how "loyal" is this "Love"...and on and on. But those are probably the main factors.
