Motley Fool’s “Dawn of the T288 Era” — What are those Secret AR Stocks hinted at by Eric Bleeker?

Eric Bleeker at the Motley Fool came out with a big “presentation” recently where he walked around the stage pitching a new high-end project that they’re calling Extreme Opportunities: AR — a $999 no refunds one-year subscription to their thinking about augmented reality, starting with a 15-stock model portfolio and including whatever changes or updates […]

Motley Fool “First Trillionaure”

“Prediction will give you goosebumps” This is a Trillion-Dollar Technology. CEO of ARK Investments says it could be worth “35 Amazons”, also says it is “the rocket fuel of the AI” Teaser also says super rich are reacting to tech: Shark Tank Billionaire says it will create worlds first trillionaire Baddy CEO has pivoted his […]

Motley fool Marijuana pick

Does any body know the marijuana stock Motley Fool is teasing recently? I saw an add on Facebook. Apparently it’s a Canadian company, with partnerships with Facebook, amazon, and newly the Ontario government. Since July 2016 it’s grown over 400% and last quarter grew 86% in sales. Sounds like the CEO recently said the company […]

Fool’s “The Tiny Black Box That Could Eliminate Cable” and “Cable TV’s Ticking Time Bomb” teasers

The ad we’ve been seeing recently from the Motley Fool for their Rule Breakers service is all about this “technology breakthrough” inside a “black box” that a Motley Fool analyst named Rex Moore found inside his son’s apartment — and this “little black box under his TV” that his son called the “heart of his […]

What’s “Neural Imprinting,” and will it really “wipe out pain and generate $2.86 trillion in new wealth?”

This article originally appeared as part of the Friday File for the Stock Gumshoe Irregulars (our paid members) on November 20, 2015. The article has not been updated or revised, other than a couple quick updates to numbers and valuations, but we’ve had questions about the ad of late, so we’re moving it back to […]

Motley Fool’s Television 2.0 Stocks Revealed — “The $2.2 Trillion War for your Living Room Begins Now”

Today, we take you back to 2012… The Motley Fool is promoting it’s “$2.2 Trillion War for your Living Room” stocks again, and the ad is almost identical to the version that first started circulating in the Fall of 2012. That’s not all that shocking, of course — once a newsletter publisher finds an ad […]

Three Stocks Revealed for Motley Fool’s “The Year the Internet Disappeared”

“An opportunity this good only comes along once twice in a lifetime. “These 3 quick-action interviews with our Foolish investing experts (below) show how to prepare yourself for the $19 trillion revolution that’s swallowing up the Internet. And how to zero in on the 3 next-generation technology stocks that are best positioned to profit. “I’m […]

Sahm Adrangi and Kerrisdale Capital — Top Equity Investment for 2014

These are my notes and instant reactions from a presentation at the Value Investing Congress, the notes below might contain errors, paraphrases, incorrect quotes, or misinterpretations. Kerrisdale Capital is a little bit unusual — they are a value-oriented investment manager, but they also publish pretty heavily, including on their own free email distribution list and […]

“The Little-Known Canadian Stock That’s Made Investors 48 Times Their Money— And Is Just Getting Started”

Usually when you hear “little-known Canadian stock” you think, “hey, that’s probably some miner lying about their assay samples out of a storefront office in Vancouver” … but this one’s a little different. To start with, it’s not a mining stock, and has nothing to do with gold or tar sands or pipelines or any […]

Deciphering Motley Fool’s “R.I.P., INTERNET: 1 Explosive InterWorld Stock for 89x your Money by 2020”

Another Motley Fool growth stock to sniff out for you today … David Gardner has gotten a reputation as a compelling “rule breaking” growth stock picker over the past few decades, with some huge winners chosen (and held through very tumultuous times) as he built the Motley Fool with his brother Tom. The flagship Motley […]

“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 […]

Tom Gardner’s “#1 stock across the entire Motley Fool universe right now?”

Dozens of folks have been asking me about this latest teaser for “Motley Fool One”, which is yet another Motley Fool service that aims to upgrade folks’ relationship with the Fool — they’ve progressed to running “real money” portfolios in recent years, investing the Fool’s own corporate portfolio, and having more interactive stuff like the […]

“The best Motley Fool investing idea since AOL and Amazon.com in the 1990s”

That’s our pitch today — that the new “themed” technology investments being teased by the Motley Foolians are as good as David Gardner’s push for AOL and Amazon.com back in the days before the Motley Fool published their current Stock Advisor newsletter. The ad letter actually comes in from a different Fool employee, Todd Etter, […]

“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 […]

“No. 1 China Stock for 2010… textbook (though exceedingly rare) opportunity to profit from the rise of the Chinese consumer”

Today we again visit our friends from the Motley Fool, and they transport us to the Middle Kingdom with a teaser chock full of Chinese stock ideas. The teaser comes in an ad for the Fool’s Global Gains newsletter from Tim Hanson, and it’s all about the Chinese consumer. They’ll send you a special report […]

“Two specific, wealth-building investments you can buy today to start rebuilding your own wealth”

That headline is a quote from the Motley Fool, in a recent teaser ad for their flagship Stock Advisor newsletter, the one that pits brother/founders Dave and Tom Gardner against each other. They run through their familiar spiel, that Wall Street ignores the little guy, mutual funds managers underperform and get overpaid, and that brokers […]

“The Obama Stimulus — Life-Changing Investments” Motley Fool

“The TRUTH About the Obama Stimulus… “When Ronald Reagan signed his $750 billion stimulus plan in 1981, it snapped the U.S. out of a deep recession, ignited a high-tech revolution, and signaled the start of the greatest bull market in history… “Today, Obama’s stimulus plan could offer even more potential for investors. Because this little-understood […]

“The Two Titans of Business Intelligence” — Motley Fool

“How to multiply YOUR wealth with the behind-the-scenes technology Fortune 500 CEOs are quietly riding to record profits… “Experts call it “the new science of winning.” The Economist says it’s “a golden vein.” FedEx, Capital One, Amazon, and even the Boston Red Sox can’t function without it. “Now a team of professional opportunity-seekers has uncovered […]

Motley Fool’s “One American Brand” Could Double Within a Few Years

“ONE AMERICAN BRAND POISED TO POWER INTO THE GLOBAL MAINSTREAM! “Every decade or so, a brand is born in America that goes up like a moon shot and becomes a recognizable symbol all over the world… Brands like Levis… Coca-Cola… Harley-Davidson… Heinz… McDonalds… GE… Budweiser… Disney… Gillette… Pepsi… The Gap… IBM… Wal-Mart… Apple… Nike… Microsoft… […]

“Profit as Obama Infuriates Liberals” — Motley Fool

“The Obama Surprise” “The biggest surprise of President Obama’s first term could blindside the pundits… infuriate liberals… and create a decades-long string of profits for financial conservatives. I urge you to read on and get all the facts…” That’s our introduction to the new ad for Philip Durell’s Motley Fool Inside Value newsletter, which aims […]

“Recession-Proof Business Poised for 100% Gains” Motley Fool

The good folks at Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor newsletter have another teaser for us … they think they’ve got a “virtually recession-proof” stock for you to buy … in their words: “On Sale Now… a Virtually Recession-Proof Business Poised for 100% Gains… “An investment story like this doesn’t come along very often… “It’s a business […]
