An Interview with XMFPhila100

Last updated: 3/9/2010
The Fool:
Does ethics or 'socially responsible investing' have a place in your investment approach? How so? How not?
XMFPhila100:
Someone, somewhere can find something in a company 10-K to morally disagree with, whether it's farm subsidies, cell phone radiation, whatever. As an investor, if you seek out potential moral flaws with each company you research, you'll find them. Instead, I want to identify companies with good values -- those that truly improve the lives of its consumers, for it'll be these companies that have sustainability.
The Fool:
Your most heroic moment in life?
XMFPhila100:
Any "heroic" thing I've ever done pales in comparison to the heroism we witnessed by the NYPD, FDNY, and Port Authority on 9/11. I would be a fool (lower case "f") to think I've ever been a hero when put in that light.
The Fool:
How do you define success?
XMFPhila100:
If I've helped make other people's dreams come true.
