*** HOT STOCK PICK ALERT  -- September 20, 2020 -- ***

Four (4) of this year's Motley Fool Stock Picks Have Already DOUBLED and ONE of those has QUADRUPLED in just 8 Months! ****

We have been tracking ALL of the Motley Fool stock picks since January 2016. That's almost 5 years, 56 months and 113 stock picks. As of Friday, September 18, 2020, four of their eighteen stocks picks from 2020 have already doubled (SHOP , ZM, TSLA and ZM (they re-recommended ZM)) and one of those has quadrupled (TSLA)--all in just the first 8 months of 2020. In addition, 7 of their 2019, 9 of their 2018, 9 of their 2016 and 13 of their 2016 picks have also doubled. Best of all, over the last 5 years the average stock pick is up 143%. That beats the SP500 by an average of 99%. And that's even accounting for all of this COVID mess that has wreaked havoc on most stocks. BUT, the Fool has done so well because they have quickly identified stocks this year that will perform well in the post-COVID world. THAT is how the Fool consistently does so well--they adapt and constantly pick stocks before everyone else realizes the opportunities.
  • Zoom Video (ZM) – April 16, 2020 pick and it is already up 146%
  • Shopify (SHOP) – April 2, 2020 pick and it is already up 181%
  • Zoom Video (ZM) – March 19, 2020 pick re-recommended and it is already up 199%
  • DexCom (DXCM) picked Feb 20, 2020 right before the market crashed and it is still up 32%
  • Tesla (TSLA) picked January 2, 2020 before the crash and it is up 386% 
  • HubSpot (HUBS) picked December 5, 2019 and it is up 82%
  • Netflix (NFLX) picked November 21, 2019 and it is up 66%
  • Trade Desk (TTD) picked November 11, 2019 and up 129%
  • Zoom Video originally picked Oct 3 and it is up 381%
  • SolarEdge (SEDG) picked September 19, 2019 and it is up 117%
Now, no one can guarantee that their next picks will be as strong, but our 5 years of experience has been super profitable. They also claim that since inception, their average pick is up 529% and now we believe them. Many analysts are saying that we have passed the bottom of this COVID crisis and "certain" stocks will recover quickly and be the new leaders. So make sure you have the right stocks in your portfolio.
