The Motley Fool is worth it if you want hand-picked stock recommendations delivered to your inbox every month and a wealth of premium research. It’s a great resource for newer investors and even DIY investors who want a helping hand with research and stock picks.
As you can tell from this review, we are pretty positive about The Motley Fool. I’ve tried some competing newsletters and services that cost more than double. Motley Fool offers a good balance of interesting investment ideas at a reasonable rate, making it a good value for investors of all skill levels.
Beginner to intermediate investors can learn a lot from reading the details behind each stock pick. More experienced investors can use that information as fodder when making their own investment decisions.
If you just dollar-cost average your way into various index funds and ETFs, the Motley Fool might not be worth it since you’re not trading stocks as often. But again, its premium research is pretty solid.
I have experience managing part of a university endowment fund and seven-figure portfolios, and I have a few stocks from The Motley Fool in my own portfolio. Some are doing great. Some are doing so-so. But on average, they have done well enough to pay for the subscription cost and leave me with a nice little profit.
Why am I talking about myself here? Well, if someone like me with two finance degrees, portfolio management experience, and all day to sit on the computer thinking about money found value from The Motley Fool, you will likely find it worthwhile as well.
