Hello Gumshoe Community. I thought I’d start a discussion for anyone who wants to join about the various LIDAR company’s out there. I am invested in AEVA and INVZ who I believe can be strong performers in the coming years, even though AEVA has gotten hammered since it’s SPAC merger completed. I love their 4D […]

The Motley Fool just opened up their Rising Stars 2021 subscription with the teaser of 12X returns. They offered the service in 2017 and again in 2020. They are giving 10 tickers at enrollment and another 30 over the course of a few of weeks. They discuss how great the 2017 and 2020 portfolios did […]

Hi Does anyone have any experience with the Rising Stars service from Motley Fool? I don’t see any mention in the newsletter rankings and a colleague sent me an e-mail that they are doing a presentation on Wednesday for Rising Stars focusing on micro caps and 12X potential so I’m curious if it’s a worthy […]

The bubble of short supply and huge demand may be over but it looks like new housing and remodels are still growing, so what's the best move to make in the market? WY is still about double from it's March 2020 low (is dropping today) however will they be a[...]

On Microblog: What stock is this from Motely Fool Investor's Digest May 15, 2021? Thank you.

I would have to agree it's SPT. It's up over 100% since August 2020, the recent earnings call reported ARR over $170MM and 28,122 customers. Seems like a good fit.[...]

On Microblog: Revolutionary "Radar system" for self driving cars, Tesla needs from this company

This would seem to be referring to a LIDAR company and the only one I can see as of today that is still "pre-IPO" is AEye, a lidar startup that developed its technology for use in autonomous vehicles as well as to support advanced driver assistance systems[...]

On What's that Motley Fool "Potential 865X Growth" Microcap?

Hello Professor. I have been reviewing this thread again and SHSP is not disclosed as being recommended or owned by MF as of May 14, 2021. So I can't believe it is the correct pick.[...]

On Microblog: Motley Fool - David Gardner retirement from stock picking

While he did offer 3 picks over the two services, if you look at the truly NEW stock picks given, he only gave 1 new pick a month and that was in Rule Breakers. The other "New" RB stock he selected was a rerun of a previous pick and his SA pick wasn't guar[...]

That's a very valid point that I am confused about as well. While Bitcoin may be a Rising Star, it's certainly not under their $6B cap, but if folks are to be believed as to what the stocks are that are selected there is also a $9B cap stock listed in that[...]

My position was about the claims that I felt MF was making, not just about duplicate picks. I received another e-mail today offering the service and again they talk about locking in "12X Trades" and how previously they touted the fact that these picks are [...]

On Redditt, tbert1991 posted 9 stocks and bitcoin which were noted to be part of the first 10. I looked up the 9 stocks on the public articles MF published and from the disclaimers was able deduce that 5 were owned and recommended by MF as early as January[...]

That's an interesting quote because the bulk of the marketing for RS2021 that I have seen talks about "a time-sensitive opportunity to lock in a “12x trade” opportunity" and on and on about multi-baggers, so for the true reveal to say 6X over 10 years.[...]

That's an impressive amount of services to be in. I wish I had the $$$ to invest to make it worth being in that many. I agree they have a strong marketing department and you can see the power they wield when they make a recommendation and at that momen[...]

First let me say I truly appreciate the give and take we are having and I fully respect your position. My recollection from their pitch is that they are really playing up the "never before recommended" line and the $6B market cap as selling points, so wh[...]

If it is included, it is not unique to the Rising Stars 2021 service. It's in another portfolio for sure. If you look at the disclaimers on the MF articles and Earnings transcripts you'll see that on March 18 MF both owned and recommended Upstart. So anoth[...]

I would have to say that I doubt MF would break their market cap rule for picks and that it's not a legit member of the group. Anyone who is subscribed able to confirm.[...]

I believe they have released they released the first 10 of Rising Stars last week and this is for the second 10 of the 40 in total that are coming soon. Some of the Discovery picks were posted, I didn't see them before they were removed but I believe Risin[...]

Please do not misunderstand I think those are really great returns. 2.5X on the 2017 portfolio is just great, but over that time both the S&P and all impotent Russell 2000 are both up over 2X as well and if you look at the RB and SA picks, as a group they [...]

Tom put that last recommendation up a couple days after the initial presentation because I believe a lot of people were very disappointed with the bonus one they gave out at the start. I personally stick to the equal money allocation style with the stocks [...]
