What is the Motley Fool?

The Motley Fool has been around since 1993 and supports millions of members with financial advice. Since 2002, when they launched their Stock Advisor stock picking service, The Motley Fool has returned 527% compared to the S&P 500’s 106%.

There are a lot of financial services on the internet that simply would love to take your money and run away with it. However, the Motley Fool is definitely legit.

I have been a paid subscriber to their stock newsletter services for 5 years now. And I have watched my portfolio beat the S&P 500 by over 45% for each of the last 5 years.

Motley Fool is definitely a legit investment-advice service that helps you stay on top of trends and conquer the market.

*** MOTLEY FOOL UPDATE:  September 16, 2020  ***


If you were a subscriber, then you would have these profits…

As of September 16, 2020:

  • Shopify (SHOP) – April 2, 2020 pick and it is already up 161%
  • Zoom Video (ZM) – March 19, 2020 pick and it is already up 246%
  • DexCom (DXCM) picked Feb 20, 2020 right before the market crashed and it is still up 30%
  • Tesla (TSLA) picked January 2, 2020 before the crash and it is up 302% compared to the SP500 7% so it is ahead of the market by 295%
  • HubSpot (HUBS) picked December 5, 2019 and it is up 93%
  • Netflix (NFLX) picked November 21, 2019 and it is up 62%
  • Trade Desk (TTD) picked November 11, 2019 and up 106%
  • Zoom Video originally picked Oct 3 and it is up 456%
  • SolarEdge (SEDG) picked September 19, 2019 and it is up 140%
  • Wix (WIX) picked May 2019 and it is up 80%

Their last 12 picks that are at least 3 months old (released prior to May 1st 2020) are up on average 94.18%.  That means if you had bought each of the 12 picks from November 2019 to April 2020 you would have almost doubled your money–in spite of COVID!

What’s most impressive, as even with COVID, the Motley Fool was quick to pick out the stocks that stand to benefit from the COVID crisis.  THAT is how the Fool consistently does so well–they adapt and constantly pick stocks before everyone else realizes the opportunities.

Now, no one can guarantee that their next picks will be as strong, but our 5 years of experience gives us no reason to think otherwise.

SAVE $100.  Normally the Fool service is priced at $199 per year but they frequently run price discounts.  This page has their lowest price ever where NEW SUBSCRIBERS can try it for just $99/year if you click this link.  Now if you would have bought just 4 shares of TSLA back in January like I did, those profits alone would cover the next 50+ years of your subscription!

Don’t miss out on the Fool’s next stock pick–it could be the one that doubles or triples in the next few months. If you order today, you will get these ALERTS via email:

  • September 17, 2020 – David’s New Single Stock Recommendation
  • September 24, 2020 – David’s New 5 Best Stocks to Buys Now
  • October 1, 2020 – Tom’s New Single Stock Recommendation
  • October 8, 2020 – Tom’s 5 New Best Stocks to Buy Now

This offer includes a 30 Day, 100% FULL Refund Guarantee

In case you’re not convinced, watch this video! Even their free stock recommendations have destroyed the S&P 500! The video below will give you more info about the Motley Fool, and show you why it’s legit!
