They always include a comparison with the performance of the S&P 500 over the same period as their stock picks, which is good to see. Over the same period the S&P500 is up 797% cumulatively for the stock picks, so their Alpha is 300%, which is very good.

As we’ve said before it always helps when the market is strong and it’s obviously been on a good run this year, but of course there are no guarantees that will continue.

Still, whether the market is up, down or sideways, the Motley Fool has proven itself as one of the best stock picking services out there and is continuing to do so during our trial.

Motley Fool Stock Advisor – Results Update

30th March 2021

Surprisingly there has been a bit of a step back for the Motley Fool Stock Advisor lately, with their total current portfolio cumulative return dropping by 513% since our last update.

However, the cumulative running profit for our trial still stands at a very impressive 573%.

You can view full results here.

The recent drop may be due to the fact they are heavily focused on tech and high-growth companies, which have taken a bit of a hit lately as the stock market has shifted back towards more traditional companies in anticipation of economies opening up after lockdown.

However, their returns are still well ahead of the market, 114% ahead in fact, so even in a tough time for tech companies they are still showing their alpha.

 

 

 

 


Motley Fool Stock Advisor – Results Update

17th January 2021

The Motley Fool Stock Advisor continues to absolutely crush it, with a further 682% total return generated since our last update back in September.

That means their cumulative running profit for our trial stands at a whopping 1086%.

You can view full results here.

It is also worth comparing their results to the overall returns of the S&P 500 over the same period, or their “alpha” in other words – and they are crushing that as well, by a monster 768%.

So suffice to say those results are pretty incredible and come on the back of nearly 20 years of extraordinary success for the service. Now of course past results do not guarantee future success, but if you’ve found a better stock-picking service we’d like to know about it!

Just a note that as this is a long-term service where they recommending holding stocks for 3-5 years or more, we have kept the names of the stocks they recommend hidden in our results spreadsheet to protect their interests, which only seems fair.

Anyway, here’s to them keeping up the good work in 2021 – and beyond!

 

 

 


Motley Fool Stock Advisor – Results Update

16th September 2020

The Motley Fool Stock Advisor is a long-running and renowned stock-picking service from the Gardner brothers, David and Tom.

We have been following it in a personal capacity for many years now and consider it to be one of the best, if not the best, stock-picking service out there.

That sentiment has very much been borne out during our trial so far, with a cumulative profit of 404% made since April this year.

You can view full results here.

We have kept the names of the stocks and their buy prices hidden to protect the integrity of the service as these are long-term buy and hold positions for 3-5 years on average so it wouldn’t be fair of us to give the names of the stocks away.

Anyway, in terms of results David and Tom are doing what they have always done – that is picking high growth stocks that have the potential to win – and go on winning.

It’s quite a talent they have and long may it continue.

 

 

 

 


Motley Fool Stock Advisor – New Review

19th April 2020

One of the most popular and renowned stock pick services in the world is the Motley Fool Stock Advisor. Run by two brothers, David and Tom Gardner, it has enjoyed phenomenal success in the 18-odd years it has been running.

Their net returns are stated to be 388% since 2002 versus the S&P 500’s return of 84% over that time, which needless to say is pretty astonishing.

The Motley Fool’s biggest success stories have been in backing tech stocks in their early days before they really took off and netted them returns like 15,000%¬†and 18,000%.

As a member of the service you receive two stock picks per month, one from David and one from Tom. The stock picks come with detailed write-ups and reasonings behind them so you can see what the thinking is behind the selections.

It is very much a service for the long-term minded investor, with stocks typically held for 3-5 years and often longer to give them a chance to realise their full potential.

The service is very reasonably priced considering their tremendous success, with an annual subscription costing from just $99.

Although we have been members in a personal capacity for a number of years, we will start off an official review here at the site to record the exact results they achieve from their stock picks. It is certainly an interesting time to be starting a review with the stock market in such turmoil!

It also presents some opportunities however so let’s hope we see some of the returns they have achieved in the past repeated during our review. We will update things here regularly as we go along.

Just a note also that there is also a UK version of Motley Fool called Share Advisor but we will be looking at the US version of Stock Advisor here in this review as that has been by far the most successful.
