In this video as part of the Motley Fool's "Ask a Fool" series, Fool analyst Jamal Carnette takes a question from a Fool reader, who asks, "What's your Foolish opinion on Telefonica (NYSE:TEF)? Do you think Telefonica will merge with Telecom Italia (NYSE:TI) or just take its best parts and let Telecom decay? How will the Italian government react? How can a stock be downgraded by Moody's and at the same time rise by 7%?"
Inspired by the idea of "making your money work for you" at a young age, mostly because he was a lazy child, Jamal parlayed that inspiration into a love of the psychology of markets, competitive advantages, and thematic investing. He later shrug off that laziness, with a career that included stints as a mortgage trainer, a financial advisor, a Sr. Investments Communications Specialist, and a stockbroker. Jamal graduated from George Mason University with a bachelors of science in finance, American University with a masters in finance, and is a CFA charterholder.
