Motley Fool’s Stock Picking Services

The Motley Fool runs various stock picking services that are tailored to different types of investors. Their flagship product and by far the most popular is the Stock Advisor service followed by Rule Breakers. Here’s what you can expect from both services.

Stock Advisor

Stock Advisor focuses on finding the best high growth stock opportunities across many sectors including but not limited to tech. Their time horizon is long-term, recommending a minimum hold period of 5 years and a diversified portfolio of at least 15 holdings.

In addition to the two new stock picks per month they also provide stock picks to help build out a new portfolio. These “Starter Stocks” as they call them, are the ten best investment opportunities from their portfolio and they are meant to help diversify the portfolio, provide stability during turbulent times and strong, long-term growth potential.
