On the other hand, doing the opposite of what "motley fool" suggests is often a good idea. It does get confusing, however, where MF has an article praising a given stock one day and bashing the same stock the next day.
Yup, you're absolutely right. Yet, this true for the inexperienced investors to whom their shallow arguments appear somewhat strong. They do have good articles and picks but again you have to be very knowledgable with substantial background in investments to pick up only the useful info and skip the manipulative trash. Their argument with ONVO was that they have different columnists who write whatever they feel like. In this case they should call themselves a forum and not a serious financial news site who guides investors. Certainly, they can't fool us. The timing of the articles for ONVO was an ugly manipulation. When the stock hit $ 10 they took it down. The bad thing is that the inexperinced investors with small positions were hurt the most.
