In this segment from Friday's Where the Money Is, Motley Fool financial analysts Matt Koppenheffer and David Hanson take a question from a Fool reader, who writes, "Hey guys, great show. I just bought my first stock ever: Progressive (NYSE:PGR). I did this based on Inside Value's recommendation and my own research...The company seems to be very good at managing risk and I like how they have a slight upper hand over other companies because they sell directly to the consumer, allowing for a higher margin like GEICO. I think Progressive definitely has the potential to grow over the next few years. What do you guys think?"

Questioning an investing thesis -- even one of our own -- helps us all think critically about investing and make decisions that help us become smarter, happier, and richer.
