Dueling Fools

Duel Flashback:
Network Solutions

November 3, 1999

It was easy to love Network Solutions (Nasdaq: NSOL) at first. Everyone who wanted to apply for a domain address had to go through the company. Then the government began to open up the monopoly and optimists scattered.

Six months ago, our Foolish Voters sided with the bearish Paul Larson (TMF Parlay). Yet it was our bull, first time Duelist David Marino-Nachison (TMF Braden) who won the bout with his bullish arguments. Shares of Network Solutions have risen 12.8% in the half year since the Duel first ran.

Victory? David Marino-Nachison. Congrats!
