iBeacons and the Motley Fool’s “Inside the iStore: The One Stock to Own When Apple Takes Over Ecommerce.”

I think I saw this ad a few months ago and didn’t write about it for one reason or another, but it just started a heavy rotation again — so let’s have a gander. David Gardner is a growth stock dynamo — he and his brother Tom founded the Motley Fool as an AOL chat […]

“The Intel of NFC: One ‘Ground Floor’ Stock Every Opportunistic Investor Should Snap Up Today.”

David Gardner has touted and teased many stocks for both his Rule Breakers and his Stock Advisor services — probably, in fact, we’ve covered more Motley Fool teaser ads here at Stock Gumshoe than we have any other publisher (and according to the quick calculations of one of our readers, they’ve had more winners than […]

“The Santa Claus Bubble of 2013″ — David Gardner’s Online College “Rule Breaker”

“This is the only company in the online higher education industry that’s creating a win-win for everyone. Which means it’s the only one with long-term staying power. The sad truth is, most online colleges exist for one simple purpose. To suck away federal loan dollars from Uncle Sam. These “diploma mills” don’t even care whether […]

“Big Banking’s $20.8 Trillion Secret” Pick from David Gardner

About a month ago I wrote a Friday File for the Irregulars that was based on a pitch the Motley Fool was making for an Internet banking company — it was all about how bricks and mortar are dead, and about how a prescient “mysterious investor” at the Motley Fool had a history of picking […]

“I Bet You $117,238.20 That This Stock Explodes in 2013″ (Motley Fool’s “Get Rich on Wednesday” Pick)

Now THIS is a fun ad. Jeremy Phillips is the Chief Technology Officer at the Motley Fool, and he starts off their new ad with a great quote: “I plan to get rich on Wednesday morning — care to join me?” Well … yeah. Isn’t that why we’re all fretting over our investments, saving precious […]

“One Stock You Must Buy Before the iPhone-Android War Escalates Any Further…”

I have to give the Motley Fool Rule Breakers folks credit on this one — they’ve been touting this stock consistently for just about two and a half years now, and it has, despite the fact that it always looks kind of expensive, refused to spend much time going down during that time. But every […]

“Capitalize on this ‘Backdoor’ iPhone 5 Opportunity Before it’s Too Late”

Today I’m taking a “mea culpa” moment to remind you about a a stock I’ve been a wee bit skeptical of as “too expensive” for quite a while … I’ve been quite wrong about the stock so far and it has risen persistently and consistently over the last 2+ years. Not that it’s rare for […]

“What you don’t know about Steve Jobs’ final vendetta …” (Motley Fool)

The folks at the Motley Fool have run lots of ads for stock picks that “piggyback” on the iPhone’s gargantuan success — as have lots of other newsletter publishers, of course — and it looks like that trend will continue. The ad I’ve seen today takes a somewhat different tack on this same basic idea […]

“An unstoppable $160 BILLION force that could make early investors a small fortune…” (Motley Fool)

The folks at the Motley Fool have been promoting Dave Gardner’s Rule Breakers newsletter for years by using the same basic theme for their ads: Cloud computing scared Bill Gates into retirement, and the “Kings of Cloud Computing” in the next era will make you rich. If you’re not familiar with Gardner, he’s basically a […]

“The Next Great Payment Revolution” — the Motley Fool’s NFC Stock is …

Seems like I’m seeing a lot more of David Gardner over the last month than I had for ages — he’s the growth-focused half of the Motley Fool brothers, and this time around the pitch is for his “aggressive growth” newsletter Rule Breakers. This letter has brought us a lot of interesting ideas in the […]

Motley Fool: “10X Bigger than the Internet: 4 Alternative Energy Plays”

This one has caused quite a stir among the vast and mighty Gumshoe readership, if my steady deluge of email is any indication. Everybody loves growth stocks, especially when nothing else seems to be growing, and everyone thinks alternative energy will be the next billionaire-maker — the Fool compares the current situation in alternative energy […]
