This Motley Fool service is about “genesis trends,” betting on big trends that will shock to the upside, particularly playing on the major acceleration in social changes brought by the COVID-19 pandemic (e-commerce, telehealth, etc.). Similar to past niche upgrade offerings like Extreme Opportunities: Augmented Reality and some others (all of which seem to be […]

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 […]

I have heard folks say ” all it takes is that one right stock”. ” All in” stock is a very strong buzz word. Makes me think how much is fact-based substance and how much is hype. Either way, I am interested. https://www.fool.com/ext-content/all-in-stock-buy-alert/?utm_source=dianomi&utm_medium=contentmarketing&utm_campaign=sar-allinalert&utm_content=MarketWatch%3A&aid=9223&paid=9223&waid=9223&source=esadinwdg0210133&psource=esadinwdg0210133&wsource=esadinwdg0210133&testId=all-in-advert&cellId=2&campaign=sa-post-release Please share your thoughts on this ticker.

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 […]

Does anyone know what stock they are teasing here? They’re promising ”life changing” gains which have averaged 912% each time they have an ”All In” buy alert. The details behind this tiny little internet company are impressive: It’s smaller than 1/100th the size of Google. Each one of David’s and Tom’s recommendations of its stock […]

“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 […]

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 […]

If only they paid me a quarter for each email they sent me! In reality though, The Motley Fool Is one newsletter company that i think deserves respect, and i really have an urge to sign up. But its hard to dish out $2.500 for a marijuana newsletter. Does anyone have an inside scoop on […]

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 […]

Just a brief note here to let you know that I’ve sold a little over half of my Shopify (SHOP) options position. I was pondering whether to hold on to this speculative position in the April $60 SHOP calls last month, since the one clear remaining catalyst before option expiration would be their quarterly report […]

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 […]

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 […]

It’s a tradition to give thanks at this time of the year, and one of the things we are supremely grateful for is the never-ceasing parade of promises that the financial newsletter industry throws our way in their perpetual search for new subscribers. After all, without those overhyped promises in their teaser ads we’d have […]

“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 […]

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. Richard Pearson wasn’t touted by name in the materials for the Congress, but he is a private investor and former banker who specializes in unconventional due diligence — and […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

“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 […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

We have a charming little tradition here at Stock Gumshoe of picking out the stinkiest stock to have been teased over the past year, and calling it our “Turkey of the Year” come Thanksgiving time. It’s not particularly fair — certainly not to turkeys everywhere, and probably not to the newsletter folks who use breathless, […]

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 […]

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 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 […]

“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 […]

“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… […]

“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 […]

Monthly newsletter that looks for rapid growth stocks, usually smaller capitalization companies. “Rule Breakers” are typically “first mover” or “top dog” companies with rapid growth rates that conventional analysts consider very overvalued.

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 […]

This is another teaser-within-a-teaser, part of a loooong advertising email from the Motley Fool’s Global Gains newsletter. This is a relatively new service (last couple years) that’s trying to capitalize on Americans’ obsession with overseas investments, they focus on companies that are easily tradeable in the U.S., either as listed ADRs or with heavy pink […]
