The Motley Fool

Peter Stephens

Having held various senior management positions in the manufacturing sector, Peter founded his own manufacturing company in 1996 that was subsequently sold in 2007. Meanwhile, his passion for investing remains strong and he couples this with writing for The Motley Fool as a freelancer. His investment style is value-oriented, focusing on company fundamentals as well as assessing the strength and presence of a competitive advantage. While above-average growth prospects remain very attractive, a greater focus on dividends has crept in since Peter became a part-time retiree in 2007.
