David bought his first stock in 1979 when he was 11. Although he backed up the truck and “averaged down” three years later, the company went bankrupt. That painful experience inspired David to dedicate his professional life to developing an understanding of how to be a successful investor. The fact that this ambition is a never-ending work in progress is one of the things David loves about investing.
