How did you develop your investment philosophy/get interested in investing?
My father kept slipping investment reports under my bedroom door, starting at the age of about 10, and I couldn't eat dinner until I had written my initials with a cross to indicate that I had read it.
If I weren't an analyst, I would be...
I once took a personality test that said I should either be a security analyst or an interior decorator, so I guess I'd be choosing fabrics.
What’s your favorite Ruane Cunniff tradition?
Giving my colleagues nicknames.
