written by reader Subscribe to Motley Fool as well?

By avatar, December 10, 2020

I am getting a lot out of my Stockgumshoe Irregulars subscription as I work towards my goal of building a solid $1m portfolio. My strategy is to long-term buy and hold high-quality growth companies. Occasionally and reluctantly closing out positions.
I particularly like the Friday report, where I can reflect on the key issues of risk/reward/hold/close and (of course) my longer term strategy. Doing this weekly seems to help me keep on track. Is it worthwhile to subscribe to another premium service as well? I am interested in Motley Fool. What do other people think?

I’ve never been a member of this site but I am a Motley Fool member. I love their service and I mostly just buy stocks recommended by both brothers. This has netted be returns over 100% annually. Highly recommended.

Do you subscribe to any of the premium services? I am newer to MF and have done pretty well this year with recommendations from just the $100 subscription.

Yes, Rule Breakers and Stock Advisor. I put the most money in stocks recommended by both brothers and subscribing to both of those services is a good way find those stocks. Shopify and The Trade Desk are my two largest holdings and are largely responsible for my amazing returns.

They have a couple of great premium services its hard to know which to choose. If you got the money get the Boss Mode. Rising Stars 2020 and Blast Off 2020 are for high growth up and coming stocks. Should be good for the future.

Did you say 100% annually? LOL
They do have some stocks recommendations which performs well. And some stocks which don’t perform well. Just like any other stock recommendation service.

100% is a gross exaggeration. You can safely say it beats the S&P500 by a good margin.
If you exclude the rally from March’20 onwards, their returns over the last 5 years have been just DECENT.
Luckily for them, many of their stocks are doing well during this rally.

@OP: What is the annual returns you are getting from Stockgumshoe Irregulars subscription?

No, I didn’t say 100% annually I said better than 100%. Most of the stocks in my portfolio I invest a months worth of pay into. The Trade Desk, my largest holding, I invested a years worth of pay into and I believe that as long as I have that in my portfolio I’ll easily better than double my money invested every year. Doesn’t hurt that Shopify is my second largest holding. High risk, high reward.

AM up more than 200% since March with the MF . I love their philosophy. The best is I follow some of their analysts on Twitter (Joey Solitro, Brian Feroldi ,Danny Venna ) and they actually answer you one on one. Stockgumshoe is ok but, frankly, MF is awesome and way more superior. Even their entry services SA and RB beat a lot of the middling newsletters discussed on Stockgumshoe.
People complain about the constant emails to upsize to new services but I read them all, they usually offer one or 2 free stock tips from these premium services. And you’re not obligated to join any ‍♂️‍♀️ . Besides, it’s all about trends and where they think the market is heading. That’s why I watch all their presentations!

For perspective, I don’t expect I’ll get 200% every year. This has been a most special year. Their FAZER stocks have been the gift that keeps on giving and will do so for years to come!

Yea, the people complaining about those emails baffle me for two reasons – one is they often give a free stock pick with the promo and two, the emails are OPTIONAL.
