Letter to Tom and David Gardner on Fool Strategy
Tom and David Gardener,
First of all, Congrats on this wonderful company/site "Motley Fool".
I was going to ask you to start a 'portfolio' section, like Yahoo finance or google finance, more like yahoo finance, as i like theirs with more parameters ( all analysts would).
Then after a lot of thinking and wearing my different hats, i come up with diff perspectives, and here they are:
this is a wonderful concept you got here, CAPS, getting all the people interested in investing come together.
CAPS, letting investors rate the stocks, blogs, make them speak freely to one an another, foolanthropy, fool disclosure which reveal what the investment newsletters/services invest in (even though that may undercut your revenue, as most picks are all long term) so far iam having a great, positive opinion on you.
Also thinking, to make the top tier/cream into analysts and the rest of the members could be potential subscribers, actually not a bad business model.
Which make me to think what is your strategy, who do you want to become, like
google/yahoo finance or
As its a private company, i don't have any info on the income statement, balance sheet and cash flow.With so many analysts and potentials for an analyst as CAPS members , this could be turned into a possible financial juggernaut(i always dream big), as its the great people who always make a great company, with right strategy at the right time.
As a private company, again, you don't need to answer any..thats why iam not asking many more questions i do want to ask, but figured if you talk/reply may be then more questions , well, less questions actually , as answers would just fill in when you talk.
All these above are because as i spend more time at FOOL.com due to my interests in economics and numbers and how other people's thoughts are on them, it fascinate me as a company, hence the curiosity to relate with you , may be even join Fool(it does look like a cover letter, for an application) or invest in you (with all these takeovers/mergers happening, not a bad idea, right) or something like that...
So, What is your strategy?
Iam sure many CAPS members would be interested too..
