I’ve been seeing ads for the Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor Canada service recently that catch the eye… mostly because they promise what we all want, the ability to find that one stock that will turn your small investment into a life-changing fortune.

I wrote on Monday about a Motley Fool Canada pitch for an Artificial Intelligence stock, and that tease pointed at one of two smallish tech companies from Canada’s Silicon Valley (Waterloo, Ontario)… I speculated that it was likely OpenText (OTEX) that Stock Advisor Canada was hinting at, given the clues dropped, but today we’ve got […]

Today’s teaser happens to also concern a stock that I’ve been curious about, so I’m taking the opportunity to follow the hints down the rabbit hole and do a little chewing on whatever it is I find down there. The teaser ad comes in from Motley Fool Canada in an ad for their Stock Advisor […]
The Canadian branch of the Motley Fool has been pitching a cloud computing stock that they say is “breaking out” right now, and the spiel is all about the next transition in cloud computing, from “general cloud services” to those that are specifically designed for one industry or customer group.
