When I was in MBA school, I had a professor who was always looking for a "hot stock" tip. He knew that I had my ear to Wall Street and asked me if there's anything good to buy out there. At the time I remember reading something about Toyota and liking it alot. I told him that I was thinking of buying Toyota (TM) for my 401K. He did, I got distracted and didn't, that was Fall 2003.
This trip down memory lane was jogged when I went through Wallstrip's archives and came across their Toyota video. I thought to myself, what ever happened to TM after my tip?
The short of it was Toyota took off like a rocket, er car.
Lesson to myself, don't get distracted!
