TLDR MF number one small cap stock is KNSL Kinsale Capital Group
Once again I watched the Motley Fool webinar so you don’t have to (don’t worry i was at work so it wasn’t just a wasted hour i got paid to do it). First it started off how Small caps have been outperforming large cap over the last 4 years (with the exception of the down turn which it out preformed in losses). Then MF talk about its a good time to buy small cap because small cap got beat down so much, which it probably is. After that MF hosts stroke their ego for about 35 minutes about how good they are at picking stocks and talk about how the picked The Trade Desk (TTD) back when it was a small cap in their Rising stars 2016 fund. Then the sales pitch: Normally this is a $4000 dollar a year fund but they cut the price in half to $1999. But wait there is more because you are watching this offer MF are going to offer the VIP service for 1499 until midnight tonight only. With the VIP package they will have Zoom meetings (another company MF is in love with) with you and have CEOs of different small cap companies on their meetings so we can decide for themselves if CEO’s are full of crap or not. Then it comes to the #1 small cap stock they recommend and the whole reason anyone really watches these webinars about 70 minutes into what is supposed to be an hour long webinar. Its an insurance company called Kinsale Capital Group (KNSL) has a market cap of about 2.5 billion specializes in specialty insurances. The Company operates through the Excess and Surplus Lines Insurance segment (not sure what that means but yeah) and the signs that its a MF rising star is that the company has a Fantastic leadership team, its a small company in a huge pond, and has excellent year over year growth. As of typing this out the price is about 128 bucks a share. Not sure it its a company worth investing in from what i read the company is fairly profitable and MF seems to think its gonna shoot up in price, and today its up about 11% crazy that is shot up right as MF had their webinar.

So the Fools have been pestering me with some adverts about signing up. I consulted the internet and found a blog post of a customer that purchased the Rising Stars 2020 service…all the way back in November 6, 2019..https://mrtfi2024.wordpress.com/2019/11/06/motley-fools-rising-stars-2020/ So, is this really a “first time re-opening”? Or still part of the Rising Stars 2016 service (but then why rebadge it to 2020). This stuff isn’t cheap and I’m not sure what’s going on, and whether the information I would receive if I signed up is truly current (I suppose this is all supposed to be a long-term play, so… Read More »
