Motley Fool & so many others are just out there to get your money! Follow the free sites & do your homework. Only 10% of your portfolio should be risk stocks, the others dividend growth stocks. However Zacks,The Fool,Oxford etc are a joke! They all try to sell you & say the same things as posted above! Use your head when investing!
I don't get it. I joined Motley Fool Rule Breakers based upon a tantalizing advertisement online about a mystery stock... they are the kings of dragging you in with a great mysterious story. Ever since I've joined I get an incredible number of offers for different research services, each one the greatest ever and each one sounding alike... all tempting but all clearly slicing and dicing the same research to to sell things over and over. Some of them sound like used car salesmen. When I don't respond I get emails with a lower price and congratulations on how I was smart to wait for the lower price!
But there are so many ideas and they tout their gurus so highly... the new Buffet etc... that I could never diversify adequately. So I tucked away their emails on this mutual fund to look at when I have the time. They make it sound like it is run by geniuses, but I compared the max, 10 year, 5 year, 1 year comparative returns for FOOLX agaisnt the total market, the S&P, the midcaps, the smalls and the fortune 500. Regardless of the timeframe, FOOLX is dead last in each and every comparison with the sole exception of July 2016. This thing doesn't even touch the returns of the average indexed investment in most any class. How could a managed fund by "the new Warren Buffet" do so poorly
