An Interview with pleached

Last updated: 11/16/2007
The Fool:
Briefly explain how you select stocks.
pleached:
It is all pitch all the time. If i can understand what the company does, what moves it and what is catalyzing future growth in a way that backs 18-20% Y2Y growth, then I'm in.
The Fool:
What is your favorite techno gadget?
pleached:
Is it possible to be a linux and oracle jockey and still be a Luddite? It must be because that is about where I am. Toss the gadgets and give me a nice wooden desk, a really good pen, slabs of pristine paper, and natural sunlight.
The Fool:
What seemingly insurmountable challenge did you meet and defeat?
pleached:
I paid off a ton of student loan debt in 4 years.
