This article originally appeared as part of the Friday File for the Stock Gumshoe Irregulars (our paid members) on November 20, 2015. The article has not been updated or revised, other than a couple quick updates to numbers and valuations, but we’ve had questions about the ad of late, so we’re moving it back to […]
The folks at the Motley Fool like to make a lot of the success of their “double down” or “double play” or “triple play” stocks, which generally is a reference to stocks that are either picked by both of the founding Fool brothers (David and Tom Gardner, who together choose the stocks for their flagship […]
I may have to add a little dose of guessing to the Thinkolator results on this one, but we’ve had a few folks asking “who beat Amazon?” of late, thanks to this latest Motley Fool ad, so I’m going to give it a try. The ad is for the Motley Fool’s flagship Stock Advisor service, […]
David Gardner at the Motley Fool is usually the “growth” guy — he’s the one who has most famously grabbed on to “story” stocks when they were crazy expensive but had big growth potential, and held on for gains of several thousand percent (Netflix, Priceline, etc.). So it caught my eye that he’s recommending a […]
Today’s teaser is a pretty short one, from the Motley Fool for their flagship Stock Advisor newsletter, but most ads from the Fool make the Gumshoe faithful perk their ears up so we’re going to cover it quickly for you today. And I think I’ve covered more teaser picks for Motley Fool Stock Advisor than […]
I’m not writing much this week, but thought I’d get a quick teaser answer out for those of you who’ve been asking… …the Motley Fool started hinting about their new Motley Fool Stock Advisor recommendation from David Gardner a few days ago, and they haven’t done a lot of hinting of late for those picks […]
Today, we take you back to 2012… The Motley Fool is promoting it’s “$2.2 Trillion War for your Living Room” stocks again, and the ad is almost identical to the version that first started circulating in the Fall of 2012. That’s not all that shocking, of course — once a newsletter publisher finds an ad […]
We haven’t looked into a Motley Fool teaser pitch for a while, so let’s all settle down in our desks and get out our pencils — we’ve got a long one to look at today, and it’s all about the kind of “rule breaking” company and technology that David Gardner, founding Fool brother from their […]
Growth-focused portfolio service from David Gardner, with search for long-term high-growth “rule breaker” companies, but with more specific and precise buy and sell guidance and portfolio allocation recommendations.
Nothing beats a time machine for getting rich — if we learned nothing else from Back to the Future 2, we at least know that. So what is this “Time Machine” stock the Motley Fool folks have been touting? It’s not about going back in time and betting on football games with the benefit of […]
Flagship stock-picking newsletter for the Motley Fool UK, mostly recommends London-listed stocks.
It’s a tradition to give thanks at this time of the year, and one of the things we are supremely grateful for is the never-ceasing parade of promises that the financial newsletter industry throws our way in their perpetual search for new subscribers. After all, without those overhyped promises in their teaser ads we’d have […]
The carnage in energy and oil services stocks over the last six months or so is causing a lot of contrarian investors to sit up and take notice — the combination of lower perceived demand (because of efficiency, slower growth in China, and the recession in Europe) and increased supply (because of the huge shale […]

May 12 Update: The lateset teaser pitch from the Fool is touting this same stock again, only with a different spiel from a different company as they tout the “connected car” instead of the “autonomous car”. I presume they’re just testing different ads to see what works best — this latest one pitches it as: […]
“You Won’t Read About ‘Duke St. Trusts’ in Bloomberg… “But for Over a Decade They’ve Minted Returns Like 197.7%, 3,265.6%, and even 5,389.9%!
