Stock Advisor Picks' Features
- Stock tips, of course. When enrolled in Stock Advisor, 12 total stock recommendations are given in a Thursday newsletter, provided by David and Tom Gardner (both still do all of the picking even after all of these years). Each stock picked showcases the company’s risk profile, why and what made the brothers pick the stock, and 24/7 monitoring. This means if there is an issue and Motley Fool thinks it’s time to bail, you’ll get an alert.
- Starter stocks. If you are just starting out and want an easy, go-to set of stocks, the list is curated monthly and includes 10 rock-solid stocks to help you build your portfolio. There is also a special section for newbies to help you start building your portfolio.
- Instant alerts. Favorite your stocks and watch them, and then you will receive an instant alert when there are big price changes, good buying ops, and when you need to sell.
- Deals. David and Tom are watching the market and when they notice great prices, they alert their members, just like if you had your own portfolio manager giving you a call with the news.
- News. Speaking of news, you won’t have to keep watch on the market because Motley Fool is doing that, too, and when there is news that you need to know, it’s getting posted.
- Full access. A new membership doesn’t mean you start with the current stock tips. Members have access to all the recommendations made since 2016.
- Live customer service. If you ever have questions, just call the member toll-free customer service line and speak to a real person.
- Message boards. The Motley Fool is a member-driven community and in its boards, you can talk to other investors, ask questions, and learn valuable tips from people just like you.
