Stock picking might be out of favor – but it can still work. This week’s WEALTHTRACK guests are living proof that old-fashioned, bottom up, company by company research can beat the market, and you can have fun doing it.
Our guests are The Motley Fool’s Co-Founders, two brothers, David and Tom Gardner. They launched The Motley Fool with a good friend in a backyard shed in 1993 as a small print newsletter. Fast forward to today and The Motley Fool is a giant global online investment advisory service with 12 million users a month accessing the fool.com, subscribing to their dozens of newsletters and other investment services, listening to their podcasts or exchanging ideas on hundreds of their community boards. Their Motley Fool Wealth Management service oversees $1.5 billion in assets and they have more than $900 million in their three mutual funds and recently launched ETF.
Their oldest fund, the Motley Fool Global Opportunities Fund is rated 4-star by Morningstar and has handily beaten its market benchmark and world stock category. Since their flagship “Stock Advisor” newsletter was launched in 2002, its stock recommendations, two new ones a month from each brother, have beaten the market by a wide margin.
Older brother David’s swing for the fences, the growth-oriented list has clocked in an average return of better than 600%, while younger brother Tom’s less volatile value picks have averaged a better than 160% gain. They both maintain it’s pretty easy to beat the market once you get the core principals down.
As they celebrate the 25th year anniversary of The Motley Fool, I asked them to share those core investment principals.
