LouAnn Lofton


LouAnn Lofton has been with The Motley Fool since January 2000, first as a writer, later as the managing editor for all of the Fool's online content, and currently as a contract writer and editor. Her book Warren Buffett Invests Like a Girl: And Why You Should, Too was published in June 2011, and debuted at number five on the Wall Street Journal’s business best-sellers list. As a largely self-taught investor and a believer in taking the long-term view, her interests and portfolio lean towards owning stocks she can easily understand and then holding onto them forever. She's also a Berkshire Hathaway "B" shares shareholder, and has no plans to sell that stock ever. (Mr. Buffett would be proud.)
