*** UPDATED December 3, 2020:  All percentage returns calculated based on closing prices of Friday, November 27, 2020 ***

THIS WEEK’S MOTLEY FOOL STOCK ADVISOR RECAP: 

  • 4 of the Motley Fool’s recent stock picks are soaring this week.  CRWD (up $20 in pre-market), OKTA (up $19 pre-market), Slack (WORK) is up 45% in the last week as it will be acquired by CRM, and NVTA is up 125% this year.
  • The stock market had a record setting week and the Motley Fool stock picks continue to drastically outperform the market:
    • The Motley Fool  January 2, 2020 pick of TESLA hit an all-time high last week and closed at $585 which means that stock is up 580% in 11 months! ( I bought $1,700 of that stock on the day they recommended it and today I have a $9,999 profit!  See my screen shot below.)
    • Their November 2019 pick TTD also hit an all time high and was up $172 (yes $172 in one day) and is now at $873 which is up 353% in the 12 months since they recommended it.
    • Their October 1, 2020 stock recommendation of Pinterest (PINS) is also exploding and is up 56% in just two months.
    • Their September 3, 2020 stock pick of Fiverr Intl (FVRR) is up 76% in just 2.5 months.
    • Most impressively 19 of their 22 stock picks for the year 2020 are up and 1 has more than quintupled (TSLA), 3 have more tripled (ZM, SHOP, ZM (re-picked)) and 1 other has doubled (NVTA).
  • Here’s a neat fact:  Had you subscribed at any time in 2019 and bought equal dollar amounts of each of their next 12 months of stock picks you would have more than doubled your money.
  • The Motley Fool Stock Advisor has recommended one stock FOUR times in the last 12 months.  They were absolutely right:  ZOOM VIDEO (TICKER:ZM) is up $213 in the last month due to a strong earnings release.  The Motley Fool recommended ZOOM July 3, 2019 when it was at $90; Oct 3, 2019 when it was at $76; March 19, 2020 when it was at $123 and finally again on April 16, 2020 when it was at $150.  Now the stock is at $472.  THAT is exactly how the Stock Advisor gets its incredible returns year after year.
  • Of the 96 Motley Fool Stock Advisor picks from January 2016 to December 2019:
        • 57 are up at least 50%
        • almost half of their picks (44) have at least doubled
        • 25 have at least tripled, and 16 have at least quadrupled in price
        • those 96 stock picks have an average return of 198% compared to the SP500’s 53%.

MOTLEY FOOL TIP:  As you can see, they have done a fantastic job picking stocks over the last 5 years.  That period covered the 2016 election, the Trump presidency, COVID and the current election.  Now they are getting ready to release their stock picks for the Biden presidency.  Their next stock recommendation is scheduled to be released Thursday, December 3, 2020.  With over 700,000 subscribers their stock picks tend to pop 2%-8% within 72 hours of their announcement.  So, to maximize you returns, you need to buy the stock as soon as the recommendation comes out.  You can get their next stock recommendation by clicking here.

My Motley Fool Experiment with My Real Money

You probably have seen the Motley Fool’s ads like the one below showing their average stock pick is up 529%:

Motley Fool Returns-August 2020

Like you, I was skeptical so I decided to find out the truth about the Motley Fool Stock Advisor service.

To have an objective test of the Motley Fool Stock Advisor service, in December 2015 I subscribed and I opened an ETrade brokerage account dedicated just to buying every one of the Motley Fool stock picks.

So for almost 5 years now I have bought $1,000-$2,000 of EVERY stock the Motley Fool has recommended.

Here is a brief summary of how those stocks have performed for me.

My Portfolio November 29, 2020

Keep reading and I will explain this chart in more detail later on.

Now, as promised, I will show you screen shots of my ETrade account.


Their Best Stock Pick of 2020

On January 2, 2020 the Motley Fool issued a BUY recommendation for TESLA when the stock was trading around $425 a share (that’s before it split 5:1 a few weeks ago).  Here is  a picture of the Motley Fool email I got recommending “BUY TESLA”:

review of stock pick tesla

You can see in the image below of my ETrade portfolio that I bought 4 shares of TESLA on January 2, 2020. I got filled at $85.78 (split adjusted) per share, for a total cost was about $1,715.  And as of  Friday, November 27, 2020 the stock was at $585 per share for a profit of $9,999 on my $1,715 investment in just 11 months.  That is a 582% gain in just 11 months:

My TSLA Trade, November 29, 2020

While I am at it, here’s another screen shot from my ETrade account–one of the Motley Fool’s February 2020 stock picks that is up 136% in just 7 months.  On Feb 6, 2020 the Motley Fool recommended NVTA and I bought 100 shares at $22.54 a share. And as of November 27, 2020 it was around $53 for a gain of $3,076 or 136% in 8 months.

These are just 2 examples of the Motley Fool’s 2020 stock picks that have done well.  In fact, 5 of the Stock Advisor service stock picks for this year have already more than doubled.  While that has been great, keep reading to see how previous years picks are even better.

Here is another FACT you should know about the Fool’s Stock Advisor service performance regarding their 2019 stock recommendations…


Motley Fool Fact Checker

Based on My Experience of Being a Paid Subscriber since 2016.

In this review, I’m going to show you exactly what you want to know about the Motley Fool Stock Advisor service.  I will present just the facts.  For example, are the returns that the Motley Fool advertises like the one below really true?

Fool stock-advisor-perfornamce-October-2020

The answer is YES, those returns since inception are correct because they picked lots of stocks in the early days that had absolutely phenomenal returns like these…

fool review stocks 2

fool stocks reviewed 1

Those 10,000+% returns on a few stocks picked in the early days naturally help the overall average.

But if you are thinking of subscribing, you should be asking how have the Motley Fool stock recommendations done the last few years?

Those are the FACTS that I set out at the end of 2015 to determine for myself.

Please note that not only have I been a subscriber to the Motley Fool for over 5 years, but I have also purchased $1,000 to $2,000 of EVERY one of their two new stock picks each month over these last 5 years in my ETrade account.

Here is my portfolio’s overall performance broken down by year of the Motley Fool’s stock picks:

My Portfolio November 29, 2020

Since I have bought $1,000-$2,000 of EVERY stock the Motley Fool has recommended over the last 5 years, here are some MOTLEY FOOL FACTS you should know based on my last 5 years of data:

    • 76% of their stock picks were profitable
    • 63% are beating the stock market (SP500) over the same time period
    • From 2016 to 2019:
      • 44 of their 96 stock picks have at least doubled
      • 25 of those have at least tripled
      • and 16 of those have at least quadrupled
    • Having that many stocks that double, triple or quadruple or more allows their average return of those 96 stock picks to be 198% compared to the SP500 average return over that same time period of 53%.  This means they are absolutely beating the overall stock market by 145%
    • Now here is the most important fact I can share with you:  the normal price for the subscription is $199 a year, but they frequently run promotions of 10% to 50% off.  Here is the link to their 50% off promotion for new subscribers.

Later on in this Motley Fool review, I will even share with you more screen prints of that ETrade account so you can see for yourself exactly how the Motley Fool Stock Advisor picks have performed for me.  Most importantly, because I have 5 years of data, I will share with you just the FACTS about their stock picking performance.

Here is another FACT you should know regarding the returns of the Stock Advisor service 2020 stock picks…Their last 24 stock picks are up 111.64%…

Motley Fool 2020 Fact

Here is another FACT you should know regarding the Stock Advisor service performance of their 2019 stock recommendations…

2019 fact

Here is another FACT you should know regarding the Stock Advisor service performance of their 2018 stock recommendations…

2018 fact

Their 24 stock picks from 2018 are up an average of 172% compared to the SP500’s 38%!


Here is another FACT you should know regarding the performance of their 2017 stock recommendations…

2017 FACT

Their 24 stock picks from 2017 are up an average of 183% compared to the SP500’s 59%!


Here is another FACT that I like…

Tom and David Gardner that started the Motley Fool years ago still run the company and make the stock recommendations.  This is an extremely important fact because you might find another newsletter that has also done well, but you never know who really is picking their stocks.  With the Motley Fool, the 2 brothers that started this newsletter have been there since day one and there is no reason to believe they are leaving their own company.


Motley Fool Stock Advisor Results over the Last 5 Years

Quick Summary: As of November 29, 2020, even in spite of the COVID Crash and the election week, the average return of all the stocks in my Motley Fool portfolio bought from January 2016 to December 2019 is +198% which means the Motley Fool’s picks are beating the market on average by 145%.

Take a look at this summary of my portfolio (Nov 29, 2020) and you will see all you need to know (average return of each years’ picks, comparison vs the overall stock market, stock picks that are profitable, stocks picks that are up 50%, 100%, 200%, 300%, Max winner and Worst loser. (Note that they do pick a few losers each year, but the winners far outweigh their losers.)

My Portfolio November 29, 2020

Your first thought after reading those percentage returns is probably “That’s impossible!”  But the fact is the Motley Fool Stock Advisor really does pick many stocks that double, triple, or quadruple every year, so the AVERAGE is truly that high.  I should know because I have been buying them for the last 5 years.  Take a look at the MAX RETURN for 2016 which is 3,101%.  That was Shopify that the Fool recommended on July 15, 2016 when SHOP was at $32.32.  (I bought 50 shares that day for $33.10 and now it is at $1,045.  More specifically, as of that date November 29, 2020…

  • the 24 Motley Fool stock picks from 2016 are up an average of 313% compared to SP500 up 86%
  • their 24 picks from 2017 are up an average of 183% compared to SP500 up 59%
  • the 2018 picks are up 172% compared to SP500 up 38%
  • the 2019 picks are up 124% compared to SP500 29%
  • and quite impressively, their 22 current picks from 2020 are already up an average of 77% and the SP500 is up an average of only 17% over the first 11 months of the year.  This is in spite of the Motley Fool picking one stock (a Chinese coffee shop) that is down 89% because they falsified financial statements.
  • Finally, of the 96 Motley Fool picks from January 2016 to December 2019:
    • 76 are up
    • 57 are up at least 50%
    • 44 have at least doubled
    • 25 have at least tripled
    • and 16 have at least quadrupled in price
  • Yes, you see in the last column that the Motley Fool does pick some losers, but the number of winners they pick far exceeds the losers.

The obvious conclusion here is the longer you hold the Motley Fool’s picks, the better they get!

If you came here just to get that Quick Summary of the Motley Fool’s  performance over the least 5 years, there you go.

MY MOTLEY FOOL CONCLUSION —  Given that their last 12 months (that’s 24 stock picks since they release two new stock picks per month) are up an average of 111% already, the Motley Fool Stock Advisor Service is absolutely worth it.  If you have at least $200 to invest each month it clearly pays for itself many times over.

The normal price of the service is $199 a year.  But if you are a NEW SUBSCRIBER, they frequently run discounts of 10% to 50% off.  They also offer a 30-day full refund guarantee so you can try it and get a full month of all of their picks risk-free.  Click the link below to see their current offer:

Their Performance for the Last 12 Months

If you had been a subscriber to the Motley Fool for the last 12 months, then you would have these profits as of November 29, 2020:

  • Pinterest (PINS) — Oct 1, 2020 pick is up 56%
  • Fiverr Intl (FVRR) — Sept 3, 2020 pick is up 76%
  • Crowdstrike (CRWD) — June 4th pick is already up 57%
  • ServiceNow (NOW) — May 7 pick is already up 39%
  • Shopify (SHOP) – April 2, 2020 pick and it is already up 199%
  • Zoom Video (ZM) – March 19, 2020 pick and it is already up 281%
  • DexCom (DXCM) picked Feb 20, 2020 right before the market crashed and it is still up 5%
  • Invitae (NVTA) Feb 6, 2020 pick is up 125%
  • Tesla (TSLA) picked January 2, 2020 before the crash and it is up 580%
  • HubSpot (HUBS) picked December 5, 2019 and it is up 158%
  • Netflix (NFLX) picked November 21, 2019 and it is up 57%
  • Trade Desk (TTD) picked November 11, 2019 and up 353%
  • Zoom Video originally picked Oct 3 and it is up 513%
  • SolarEdge (SEDG) picked September 19, 2019 and it is up 222%
  • Wix (WIX) picked May 2019 and it is up 89%

Here’s the most amazing statistic about the Motley Fool stocks over the last few years.  Regardless of what month you subscribed, as long as you bought all 24 stocks over the next 12 months you would have at least doubled your money.

Another impressive fact to note is the Motley Fool was quick to pick the stocks that are benefitting from the COVID crisis.  THAT is how the Motley Fool consistently does so well–they adapt and constantly pick stocks before everyone else realizes the opportunities.  Then, once the rest of the world figures it out, these stocks explode 2x, 3x, 4x or more.

Now, no one knows for sure what the stock market will do or can guarantee that the Motley Fool next picks will be as strong beating the market, but our 5 years of experience gives us no reason to think otherwise.

In addition to TSLA's 580% return this year, 4 other picks have more than doubled (their February pick NVTA is up 125%, March pick ZM is up 281%, April picks of SHOP and ZM again are up 198% and 213%; May pick NOW is up 38%; their Sept 3 pick FVRR is already up 76% and October 1, 2020 pick of PINS is already up 56%.

About This Review

In the rest of this Motley Fool review, I will also show you:

  • Exactly what you get when you subscribe
  • When the Motley Fool will release their next new stock picks
  • The percentage of the Motley Fool stock picks that were profitable each year
  • The OVERALL results of their picks year after year,
  • And I will tell you how those picks are still doing today, November 29, 2020 (HINT: their picks from the last 4 years (2016, 2017, 2018, 2019) have beat the SP500 by 114% in SPITE OF THE MARKETS PLUMMETING 30% IN MARCH AND APRIL.)

I will also tell you 2 important trading tips about the Motley Fool services that I have learned over the years.  Two little facts that you must understand about their services in order to maximize your profits.

Why Did I Write this Review?

I will try not to bore you, but I think it’s important to tell you a bit about myself and why I felt the need to write this Motley Fool review.

My story is probably not too different from yours. I watched my parents work their a** off (excuse my French).  They each worked 50+ hours a week to give our family the best lifestyle they could.  Unfortunately, my father passed away six years ago just after his 65th birthday. He worked hard his whole life and planned to enjoy his retirement, but he died within months of retiring.  My dad’s death taught be a valuable lesson–I need to start building my personal wealth NOW so I can retire early and ENJOY my retirement.

My Mission

To accomplish that, I set out on a mission to find the best and the fastest way to learn about the stock market and build my stock portfolio in a proven and safe way.  I started out talking to people I thought were smart and wealthy, reading countless books and magazines, and subscribing to various stock newsletters.

To save YOU a lot of time here is a summary of what I learned…

  1. The FIRST lesson I learned was definitely NOT to get stock tips from friends or chase rumors.  My friends ended up costing me money and wasting my time.
  2. The SECOND lesson I learned is that you must take action. Reading, thinking, and talking do NOT build wealth; investing builds wealth.  So the sooner you start investing the right way, the faster your account will grow.  It’s all about investing a little each month, and the power of compounding.  So stop thinking about investing and start investing NOW!  You will be surprised how quickly your portfolio grows.
  3. The THIRD lesson I learned was that not all stock newsletters are worth the money.  Over the last ten years, I have subscribed to dozens of stock newsletters and the Motley Fool Stock Advisor has the most consistent returns and is the cheapest.
  4. The FOURTH thing I learned was how easy it is to get started building a profitable portfolio. Opening a brokerage account is easy and takes less than 3 minutes. To find the right stocks to buy, that too is now easy.

Eventually, I did find a stock service that was able to consistently outperform the stock market.  And by ‘outperform’….. I am talking about consistently beating the stock market by over 60% over the last 5 years!

…And that’s why I wrote this Motley Fool review.  So I can share my results with the Motley Fool’s stock picks and help you start building a profitable portfolio like I have.

Is the Motley Fool Worth the Money?

Based on my experience over the last 5 years of buying every one of their two new stock picks each month, my analysis of the Motley Fool Stock Advisor performance concludes absolutely YES!

As I mentioned above, just buying 20 shares of TESLA on January 2, 2020 has given me $10,000 of profits.

Just to be clear.  NOT every one of the Motley Fool stock picks goes up, but they do pick a lot of stocks that DOUBLE or TRIPLE each year.  So, on average, their stock picks the last 5 years have beat the market by over 90%.

To properly answer the question ‘is it worth the money’ you need to understand how much it costs.  The regular price of the Motley Fool Stock Advisor is $199 a year.  Even at that price it is very inexpensive compared to other services.  But new customers can subscribe now for just $99 a year on this Motley Fool NEW SUBSCRIBER DISCOUNT link.

At $99 a year and with a 30 day money back guarantee it is absolutely a no-brainer.  Get the Fool’s next two new stock picks, plus access to their last few years of picks, and try it out.  Then cancel it if you are not satisfied and get your money back.  You have nothing to lose and lots to gain.

So, assuming you have some cash to invest each month, and you can let the money stay invested for a few years, it certainly seems like a very safe bet.

Here is the another FACT you should know regarding the performance of their 2016 stock recommendations…

2016 fact

How Much Does It Cost?

The normal price is $199 a year.  No commitment.  Cancel any time with a 30 day money back guarantee.  However, the Motley Fool constantly runs pricing promotions for new customers like TRY IT FOR JUST $19” and “50% OFF for New Subscribers.”

More Details…

If you want more info, please keep reading my Motley Fool Review.  And don’t worry, in this review I’ll cover everything–including the good, the bad and the ugly.

You probably already know a little bit about the Motley Fool and their products.

Invest Better with the blue

You may have seen some posts on social media where they provide insights on the stock market.  However, here’s a brief recap of what they do:

The Motley Fool is a stock picking service whose stated goal is to help you learn how to “invest better.”

They advertise heavily, often promoting their Stock Advisor’s staggering 531% return since inception compared to the market’s 111% return over the same time period.


November 2020 Fool Performance

For that reason many consider it the best stock newsletter. Those returns sound great, right?

Take a look at the chart above….it appears too good to be true.

And THAT is exactly why I wrote this Motley Fool review–to share the results of my experience with the Motley Fool service.

About the Motley Fool

The Motley Fool was founded by David Gardner and Tom Gardner in 1993.  Tom and David Gardner’s most popular stock recommendation service is called “The Stock Advisor” and was launched in 2002.

The Fool’s Stock Advisor service has only one purpose – to help YOU invest, better.

Every month, the Gardner brothers present 12 US stock recommendations that are sent via e-mail and available on their website.

Here’s What You Get…

For those of your that are just starting out investing in the stock market–the Motley Fool has a special section for you.

for starter investors

After you signup, you have immediate access to the entire Motley Fool Stock Advisor website which includes a list of their picks, their stock screener, their message boards, etc.

Stock Screener

Then you will start getting specific stock recommendations emails as follows:

  • Every first Thursday of the month, Tom Gardner presents one new stock recommendation.
  • On the second Thursday of the month, David Gardner presents one new stock recommendation.
  • On the third Thursday of the month, Tom presents five of his favorite Best Stocks to Buy Now list.
  • And on the fourth Thursday of the month, David presents five of his favorite Best Stocks to Buy Now list.

An Example Recommendation

Here is what one of the recent “Best Stocks to Buy” emails looked like…

Stock Advisor

Here’s something else you MUST KNOW–Tom and David Gardner are still running the company and providing these stock recommendations!  If you look at other newsletters, you can’t compare one year to the next because they have so much changeover and you never know whose advice you are following.  This is a STRONG POINT for the Motley Fool’s service!

If you have doubts about the Motley Fool suggestions you can pull up the coverage page which will display the analysis of the stock.

I love that feature! Here’s how it looks:

okta stock buy signal

Notice the date of this recommendation…April 20, 2018 when the stock was around $42.  I purposely picked this one to show you because it was the Fool’s top performing stock pick of 2018.

Also notice the copy above says it was first recommended in January 2018 when it was around $29.18.

As of November 27, 2020 OKTA closed at $236 so that stock alone is up 708%!  This is just one of their stellar stock recommendations that is up 7x in the last 2 years.

So, Why Should You Care About the Motley Fool?

You should care for several reasons.

First, it makes investing in the stock so much easier and less stressful.  Just read their recommendations every Thursday and buy what they recommend.  I just buy the 2 NEW picks each month as the “5 Stocks to Buy Now” are usually re-recommendations of previously selected stocks. Any of their stock picks that go down 32% I just sell off to cut my losses. This helps to keep some cash in the account.

Second, as you have seen in great detail above, they really do pick a few stocks each year that double or triple each year.

Third, if you are just getting started, its a great place to start and learn about the stock market.  Financial advisers agree on very few things, but the one thing they ALL AGREE ON is the sooner you start investing in the stock market they better off you will be in a few years.

None of us have the time nor the skills to analyze thousands of stocks and then decide which ones are the best ones.  The Stock Advisor subscription is tailored to the Individual Investor to do exactly that.

What Else Do You Get?

When you order a Stock Advisor subscription, in addition to the two new stock picks every month, you’ll have unlimited access to all of their current and historical stock recommendations.

Motley Fool Stock Advisor

You’ll also get access to their “Favorites” page, which allows you to customize a list of stocks that you are interested in following:

favorites

It also includes “Instant alerts”. They will send you an instant alert as soon as one of these events occurs to a stock in your list:

  • New buy alerts

Is the Motley Fool a Scam or is it Legit?

I get this question a lot for some reason… I think it’s because people still have a negative view on the financial industry in general.  But it’s still an easy answer: Tom and David Garner’s Motley Fool & their Stock Advisor service is DEFINITELY NOT a scam.

Of course it’s not perfect and every stock recommendation is not a winner. But, they definitely are a legit company and for the last 5 years their stock recommendations have definitely beat the overall stock market.

I also think people may get the wrong impression if they stumble upon tweets like these:

Twitterscam

However, you can find those tweets about anything these days!

The fact is, the Motley Fool stock recommendations have beat the market the last 5 years. My results shown below prove it. That is the most important thing you need to know. Also, the Motley Fool has been in business since 1993 and employ 250+ people. And they currently have 700,000+ subscribers to their Stock Advisor service. 700,000 people can’t be wrong!

Not to mention I’ve been a customer for over 5 years and I am very happy I subscribed because of the performance of my stock portfolio. I just wish I had subscribed earlier.

But, for the benefit of people reading this Motley Fool review, here are the FACTS:

  1. There’s no question the Motley Fool is a legit company that is well known among investors.  They say they have over 700,000 subscribers.
  2. I subscribed in 2015 and my results are listed above in a previous section
  3. They even have their own mutual fund, which is the “Motley Fool Global Opportunities Fund Investor Shares (FOOLX)”. I don’t have any comment on that fund as I haven’t reviewed it yet.
  4. Also, the Fool brothers, Tom and David Gardner, don’t hide from their customers. They are very active in the investment community.  For example, they often have interesting ideas on their certified Twitter page.

Here is an interesting piece on their ups and downs with Amazon.com (they first purchased it in September 1997!)

I’ve subscribed the Fool’s Stock Advisor service for more than 5 years now and I can again reassure you that this is not a scam.

Here another testimonial from a customer given on Stackexchange, proving even more how it’s not a scam.

“I’ve had a MF Stock Advisor for 7 or 8 years now, and I’ve belong to Supernova for a couple of years. I also have money in one of their mutual funds. “The Fool” has a lot of very good educational information available, especially for people who are new to investing. Read full testimonial

Now that we’ve beaten that myth to death, let me answer a few popular questions…

Will it Help you Make More Money?

The short answer is YES.

That’s proven by their past performance. As I mentioned above in this review, each of their last 4 years their stock picks have outperformed the stock market by over 90%.

I subscribed in 2016 and my results speak for themselves.

Motley Fool Stock Advisor- Additional Insights

1- It is true that there are many options to explore, but after testing a bunch of them, the Motley Fool provided the best returns and the best bang for the buck.

2- The Stock Advisor is usually $199 a year, but if you are a new subscriber visit this new subscriber page to see their latest offers like 50% off or try it for just $19 with a 30-day 100% membership refund period.

3- There is definitely a “Fool Effect.” With 700,000 subscribers, you must understand that their stock recommendations go up about $2 – $5 within  hours of the release of their recommendations. So be ready on Thursday to buy as soon as you get the email.

4- Like with any other stock picking service, it’s true that their investment strategies are not 100% guaranteed. From what I have experienced in the last 5 years, they do seem to pick one stock a year that goes down 20-30%.  They will, however, let you know when they want you to sell it.  My recommendation would be to place a stop loss order at 32% of your purchase price.

5- After paper trading their stock picks for 6 months, I eventually had the confidence to start buying all of the Motley Fool stock picks in my Etrade account.  Here are a few screenshots of my account that show the date I bought them and the returns.  Notice the TWLO was recommended twice so I bought it twice:payc profits

I also feel that the Fool service is very cheap compared to other alternatives that don’t perform as consistently. (Zack’s Investor service is 3x the price)

How Much Does Stock Advisor Cost?

The Motley Fool Stock Advisor is now available at its lowest price ever.  Last year I paid $199 and if you go to their website you will see the full retail price is $199.  BUT–They do run pricing promotions of $19 a month or $99 a year.  Either way you can cancel and take advantage of their 30 day money back guarantee and get a full refund.  You will also get their “BEST 10 STOCKS TO BUY TODAY” list when you subscribe…

Does the Motley Fool Cover Penny Stocks?

No, the Motley Fool services focuses on blue chip stocks, which are large & well-established companies in their respective industry.  They do NOT review or recommend penny stocks.

For penny stocks, I would suggest looking into Timothy Sykes, a penny stock trader who made $1.65 million by day trading as a university student.

He has a couple of teaching segments that you might interest you:

Is the Motley Fool Good for Technical Analysis?

No, definitely not. Technical analysis involves analyzing trade volume and prices and then trying to forecast the direction of stock prices.

The Motley Fool service is based on fundamental analysis and is for longer-term investing.  Hence they focus on the company’s financial statements, their competitors, the overall health of the economy, etc.

When investing for the long-term, it is best to analyze a stock’s fundamental, which can define the strengths, weaknesses and overall value of a company.

Is it Good for Day Traders?

Nope. Day Trading involves buying and selling stocks on the same day. The Motley Fool recommends stocks they want you to hold stocks for years, not minutes.

As an individual investor, I wouldn’t be comfortable having a large position on one stock. The Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor (SA) is a service that is not suited for day trading.

It is more focused on buy & hold portfolios that is seeking capital growth. This involves a lot less stress and growth for the long-term.

Motley Fool Stock Advisor Conclusion

So… is the Motley Fool Stock Advisor worth the money?

The answer is a definite YES.

Of all the stock subscriptions I have tried over the years, Tom and David Gardner’s Stock Advisor gives you the greatest bang for your buck and is most definitely worth the current rate of $99 per year for new subscribers.

I’ve been a paying customer to the Stock Advisor subscription for over since 2016.  I buy $1,000-$2,000 worth of each of their 2 specific stock picks every month.  I wrote this Motley Fool Review to other’s can see how great the Fool Stock Advisor service picks have been for me over the last 5 years.

As I stated at the beginning of this review, my portfolio has outperformed the SP500 by at least 90% each of the last 4 years so I can definitely say it’s been worth it.

The biggest negative I experience is:

  • With over 700,000 subscribers, there is definitely a Fool Effect on the stock prices. Within the first few hours of getting a recommendation, the price of the stock typically shoots up $2 or $3 so I have learned to get my order in quickly.

November 2020 Fool Performance


The Motley Fool Stock Advisor Service Compared to Their Rule Breakers Service

The Rule Breaker service works in much the same way as Stock Advisor.  They both are excellent stock picking services, consistently beat the market, release 2 stock picks per month, are best for long term investors, and they both can be purchased at Fool.com.  The differences are:

  • Rule Breaker’s picks are coming from just David Gardner and his team
  • You still get usually 2 new stock picks per month, but these picks focus on high-growth stocks that they feel are poised to be market leaders
  • The results of Rule Breakers stock picks are MUCH MORE VOLATILE than the Stock Advisor’s picks–they pick more losers but their winners are HUGE
  • Because of the great success of a few of the Rule Breakers picks each year, if you bought all 24 of their picks each year your portfolio would be about 8% higher with Rule Breakers than with Stock Advisor’s.

Conclusion:  The Motley Fool Rule Breakers picks have higher returns, but more variance as well.  So if you missed out on just one Rule Breaker pick each year, your results could be significantly worse.

For more information on Rule Breakers, see our Motley Fool Rule Breakers Review article.

What are the Best Exchanges for Crypto Margin Trading?

Bitcoin (BTC) and other digital currencies can actually be leveraged multiple times on certain trading platforms. Let’s explore the best exchanges for crypto margin trading online.

Leveraged trading is commonly employed in the stock market. Simply put, a leveraged position allows a trader to deposit a small amount of capital to trade a much larger position. The trader effectively borrows money from the broker, to open a position substantially larger than the capital amount. The amount of capital that is deposited is known as the margin requirement. A 1% margin requirement indicates a 100 X leverage amount. A 10% margin requirement indicates a 10 X leverage amount. The lower the margin requirement, the greater the leverage power of the trade.

Note:  Leverage is different to a loan in the sense that no interest is charged on the leveraged amount. However, the broker may require increased capital to keep a position open, before it gets closed out by a margin call. Leveraged trades, whether in indices, currencies, commodities, stocks, bonds, or even cryptocurrencies, can magnify profits or losses, depending on whether the trade finishes in the money or not.

Leverage isn’t the only way to increase your profit potential with cryptocurrency – check out how to earn interest on your crypto with BlockFi.

Understanding Bitcoin (BTC) Margin Trading

Margin trading is entirely possible with Bitcoin (BTC), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC), Ripple (XRP), and various other cryptocurrencies. With margin trading, crypto traders can take out long positions (bullish expectations), or short positions (bearish expectations) vis-a-vis the future price of cryptocurrency. This is made possible by brokers who advance funds to eligible traders over and above the available balance in the account. If the trader’s balance is depleted, the long or short position automatically close out.

Various cryptocurrency exchanges allow Bitcoin margin trading and CFD trading (Contracts for Difference) on these digital currency options. CFDs are derivatives trading instruments where traders do not actually take ownership of the underlying financial instrument – they simply trade contracts which mirror the price performance of these assets. For the crypto exchanges, risk is mitigated by way of liquidation prices on each of the open positions. In other words, if prices move too much and the trader doesn’t have enough capital to cover those price movements, the position will automatically close out.

Bitcoin (BTC) Margin Trading Exchanges

Futures trading has a forward perspective i.e. traders take up positions on the future price of the underlying asset. Cryptocurrencies remain ‘contrarian’ financial instruments, serving as viable alternatives to traditional investments in stocks, commodities, indices, and currencies. Yet, like the others, Bitcoins and cryptocurrencies can be traded with partial down payments known as margin when buying and selling these financial instruments. These deposits are made at the cryptocurrency exchange in question, for trading use underlying financial instrument.

Some of the best exchanges for crypto margin trading offer the widest possible variety of piers to choose from. Naturally, the preferred crypto exchange must offer the most competitive leverage to traders. It is important to pay attention to the features provided by various margin trading exchanges, such as the following:

  • Leverage amount
  • The user-interface
  • Design and layout
  • The registration process
  • Credibility of the exchange
  • Variety of crypto trading tools and resources
  • Availability of various cryptocurrency trading options
  • Professionalism and responsiveness of customer support

It is worth pointing out that the leverage amount alone is not the best measure of selecting a crypto exchange for shorting the Queen and other digital currencies. There are many other factors which come into play, and each of them must be assessed accordingly. A number of Bitcoin and cryptocurrency exchanges are highly regarded among traders. These include the top-ranked option, Binance Futures (leverage of up to 125X for the BTC/USDT pair), Huobi Futures (max margin 1000 X), and Bybit (max margin of 100 X).

It is incumbent upon traders to carefully read the terms and conditions of trading at each of these platforms, to assess the viability of each exchange in turn. Bitcoin margin trading is inherently risky, and it is strongly advised that traders begin with a small budget and gradually increase it over time. Given the extreme volatility of trading cryptocurrency and related financial instruments, it is important to keep your finger on the pulse at all times. It is worth reiterating that leverage can work for you when trades are moving in your favor, but they can also work against you if reversals take place.

How to Start Successfully a Delivery Service

The demand for delivery services is booming. It is no surprise more people want in on the action. Read on for tips on how to start successfully.

How to Start Successfully a Delivery Service

There is a high demand for delivery services. Taxi apps like Uber and Lyft, food delivery services like Just Eat and Deliveroo, and courier services like UPS and Amazon have found their workload continually increase in recent years as more and more customers opt for convenient, instant, and cashless systems. Not only is there a demand for these services, but there’s the expectation that they are perfect. Parcel deliveries should be delivered next day, and there shouldn’t be any difficulty in meeting the allotted delivery time. It is difficult but while the demand is there to be met, businesses are flooding to the market. Here’s a few tips for how to start a successful delivery service.

Vehicle and Equipment

Each delivery business has different demands for its vehicles and equipment. Some companies deliver customized meal prep, which requires a large van to fit in the boxes of ingredients necessary for a round. A similar sized van would be required for certain courier services, but there are those that can use an estate or saloon car – for instance, a Volkswagen Passat with its excellent storage space. Fast food or takeaway delivery services can get-by with a scooter or a bicycle.

Smartphones have satellite navigation capabilities so investment in those for drivers will likely be unnecessary – though, of course, it might be easier than funding their carrier’s data package costs. Others might require a dolly or hand truck. Deliverers need to be able to safely and reliably manage their deliveries and loads with the help of the correct equipment.

All vehicles must be insured. This is mandatory. If businesses shop around, they can find great deals. For instance, commercial vehicle insurance from NextInsurance.com can be personalised, meaning that the price will account for certain variables – such as, location, number of employees, and type of delivery service – and will result in businesses not having to pay for coverage which is unnecessary.

Marketing

Ensuring you have a strong online presence is essential. Some delivery businesses will likely have a physical store or office to centralise staff who help coordinate deliveries, but, as with any business, marketing via social media is the way people will see and recognise your business, especially as the majority of the business will originate via the internet.

Social media is a great tool for marketing, not only because setting it up is free. The various platforms with their range of demographics, allow for different approaches to producing and posting content. Taking advantage of each platform’s potential is essential to building an online presence. Regular posting schedule with engaging content is the way forward.

Employee

What separates delivery businesses currently on the market is the crowdsourcing of employees – see Uber, Amazon, and Deliveroo as prime examples of this – and the permanent hiring of employees done by more traditional businesses. There are merits to both. Just Eat relied on gig workers but have decided to pivot away from this model, and opt for permanent employees. For start-ups, however, permanent employees are a steadier place to begin. You need people you can trust. Therefore, screening potential employees – drivers and back-office staff – should be a rigorous process, so you know as much about who will represent your business as possible.

Just getting started? Choose your investments wisely

When you’re getting started and looking for the best investments, one of the keys to success is to take your time, do your homework and choose a range of different investments. This doesn’t only maximize your chances of reward, but also minimizes the risks while you learn the ins and outs of the ones you’ve chosen.   There is simply no benefit in making large short-term gains, if, due to inexperience or unrealistic expectations, you lose it all, and more.

Below we’ve selected some of the safest ways to generate the income you want, including some possibilities that you may not have considered.

1.      Certificates of Deposit

 Certificates of Deposit are a safe savings option which can provide a higher rate of return than higher interest rates than typical savings accounts.   To get the most benefit from this type of investment, and avoid penalties, you’ll have to be certain that you won’t need to access the funds until the end of the agreed term, which can be as little as 3 months.  They are perfect if, for example, you are planning to buy a property in a few years, and want to plan ahead. Your money is safe somewhere where you can’t access it, and it’s growing steadily.

2.      Individual Dividend Stocks

Buying stocks in well-established so-called’ blue-chip’ companies is a less risky way to get involved in the stock market, than investing in start-ups or disrupters.  Subject to external market forces, these are some of the best investments for income generation.  They perform well over time and tend to pay regular dividends to their shareholders.

3.      Pick Mutual Funds

Although traditionally you would need a sizeable amount of cash to invest in a mutual fund, these days there are many which require a deposit of $100 or even less to get started. The advantage of these funds is that instead of placing all your cash into one stock, you are taking a share in a portfolio which can be spread over hundreds of different stocks, which reduces the risk. They’re considered a great choice for anyone just getting started, and are recommended for long-term investments.

4.      Music /Wine/Art

So far we’ve highlighted some fairly traditional ways to get started as a new investor.  Now let’s look at something a bit different. If it’s linked to your interests, and an area you know something about, it can also be a little more fun, while bringing in a valuable return.

For example, if you love music, think about investing some of your available funds in music royalties.  Using one of a number of platforms, such as ANoteMusic, bid for works from a catalogue, then watch your choice as it generates cash or gets traded.  While it’s not a good idea to sink everything you have into this type of alternative investment (and you could also go for wine, or art, if they’re more your area of interest), the advantage is that they are hardly affected by major changes on the financial markets.

If you’re just getting started, the possibilities for investments are almost endless. The keys are to be sure that you understand the basics of any vehicle you choose; to diversity your portfolio; and to look for long-term returns on your investment.

What Is Service Delivery Orchestration and How Do Businesses Benefit from It?

Service delivery orchestration can be very beneficial for businesses in a number of ways. Find out what this is and why it works here in this article.

In 2020, there are many business owners who are automating their operations in order to run things a bit more smoothly. One of the most effective tools is service delivery orchestration but not everyone knows what this is. Below, we are going to tell you a bit more about service delivery orchestration and the benefits of this for businesses. Read on to find out more.

What Is It?

If you have never heard of service orchestration then you might be wondering what we are talking about. This kind of tool is very useful for a number of reasons and it typically involves freeing up service desk agents from the manual tasks that they need to carry out. These tasks that include things like employee onboarding or admin tasks can be automated to make things much easier.

Service desk employees have a lot on their plate and they are often left to put out fires when it comes to IT. However, with the help of service delivery orchestration, things can be much easier to handle for a number of reasons.

Boosting Productivity

If your service desk team is spending hours every day working on tasks that could be automated, you could be missing out on some serious opportunities. Productivity levels should always be at their highest and you need to do what you can to improve these. When you implement service orchestration, you can massively boost the productivity levels in your business.

Increased Agility

Not only is productivity improved by this kind of implementation but agility is too. When you try out service delivery orchestration, you will notice that the system will produce results quickly and routinely. This can also reduce the risk of human error which typically causes more serious issues further down the line.

Avoid Wasting Time

Another benefit of delivery orchestration for businesses is that it can help to reduce the risk of wasted time. This kind of tool can massively slash ticket resolution times which has a large impact on both the team and the customer service. With tickets resolved quickly, the service desk team can get back to work and continue making their way down the list.

Improving End-User Experience

Finally, you’ll find that, if you implement something like this, your customer service desk team will have a much better experience. The end-user experience should always be something that you are considering when buying a new tool or software and you should always consult those who might be using it.

If you haven’t yet considered delivery orchestration for your business, now is the time to put this in place. You don’t want your team to spend hours on tasks that could be automated as this will reduce morale and also waste money. Find a reputable company that offers this kind of service and transform your business into a more productive and more profitable one today.

Employee Training Content Development Tips

Employee training is no more an added perk. 

Thanks to elearning tools like learning management systems and elearning authoring tools, anyone can create, manage, and track an online training initiative. 


As a result, the top talent is now considering training and development opportunities as a decisive factor while evaluating job opportunities.

These tools allow solo-entrepreneurs or those working with limited resources to create engaging, focused, and meaningful training experiences that engage employees.

With that said, creating training content can be a challenge. Sure, elearning authoring tools are designed to help you simplify and accelerate the process, and they truly do. 

However, these tools cannot ensure that the content you are creating is going to be impactful and engaging.

Don’t worry, if you are setting out to create your first training program, follow these tips to produce something your employees will love and your organisation will thank you for:

Look Beyond The Written Word

Almost all of us have been educated with the help of books. Books are superb for storing and passing down knowledge. That’s perhaps the reason they have found such a sacred place in almost all early and current human civilizations for generations.

However, today, reading books is not a common thing. These days, we are consuming content in a number of different ways. From video platforms and streaming services to podcasts and live streams, today, we are consuming more visual content than ever before.

To make your training interesting for your employees, it is important that it doesn’t only consist of long and imposing blocks of text. To make it engaging, it is important to add a number of visual elements to your training content.

From instructional videos to infographics, an elearning authoring software will enable you to use a number of multimedia elements to make your training content more engaging and suited to the modern learner.

Break It Down

A study published in 2016 revealed that our attention span is decreasing by 88% year on year.

Your training content must address this shortening attention span in order to engage learners and make a lasting impact on them.

While adding multimedia elements to your course content is a great way to do the same, another superb (and scientifically proven) way to make training content more impactful is by using microlearning.

Microlearning is the practice of breaking down large blocks of information into smaller, easily digestible chunks of information. 

To apply microlearning to your training content, try breaking down instructional videos into smaller and focused mini-lessons. Similarly, if you have a long text-based lesson, you can break it down into smaller lessons that talk about specific subjects.

Doing this will make it easier for your learners to consume the training content. This is because they will not have to commit 30-60 minutes every time they sit in front of their computer to consume the training content. Instead, they can walk away with new information and knowledge by just investing 5-10 minutes of their time.

Conclusion

Developing training content is a long and difficult process. THankfully, an elearning authoring tool can not just accelerate the process, the templates and themes offered by these software also enable you to create world-class training content without any experience. We hope that the tips mentioned in this article will help you create engaging training content.

Top Tips To Keep Your Business Debt-Free And Financially Independent

Office

Running a business is undeniably stressful; especially when considering all the financial details at play. However, while many companies would agree that debt is essential for survival, avoiding a heavy debt burden can often seem daunting and unrealistic. Even though debt can be a powerful financing avenue for startups and small businesses, it can be agreed that keeping your business out of debt and financially independent would be far more suitable for logical reasons. Therefore, you may find these top tips extremely beneficial to the finances of your business.

Protect Your Business With Insurance Policies

It can be impossible to predict whether or not your business will succumb to potentially devastating legal claims following a public liability claim. Nor can you prevent employee disability, death, or natural disasters that can interrupt business indefinitely. Instead of merely hoping your business and your employees will casually avoid potential disasters, it is best to purchase insurance policies that will inevitably protect both your business as well as your employees.

Before purchasing any standard policies tailored for businesses, you should make use of a relevant life insurance as well as insurance calculators for commercial property insurance, business interruption policies, and several others that are vital for businesses in any industry.

Find Solutions For Late Paying Customers

Every business has the ongoing issue of customers and clients that tend to pay late for a variety of reasons. However, late payments can set your business back significantly. You will need to proactively follow up with customers that are paying accounts late and implement measures to ensure payments are made.

Suitable measures to implement can include early payment rewards, simplifying payment methods, and providing customers with statements as soon as possible. It will also be beneficial to learn how to write legally binding business contracts for customer accounts, potential partners, and other areas of business.

Reduce Expenses To Boost Profits

If your businesses expenses are too high, you will likely need to rely on credit from lenders at one point or another. Instead of maintaining your budget year after year, it is best to revisit your expenses annually to identify areas where savings can be implemented. You may find that you no longer need such a large premise, or an overflow of office supplies has become unnecessary.

While it is not always plausible to increase profits by enhancing sales prices on products or services, reducing expenses is a sure way to improve cash flow and keep your business out of debt. By reevaluating your costs at least once each year, it is highly unlikely that your business is overspending on unnecessary expenses.

Outsource Entire Departments

Outsourcing departments such as marketing, sales, customer support, and even financial areas can save your business a fortune. What’s more, by outsourcing, you will also have access to industry experts for a fraction of the cost of employing such professionals. Your business will benefit from the decision, and your financial state will improve drastically.

Is Gold & Silver a Better Investment Than Cryptocurrencies?

Crypto

Gold, silver, and cryptocurrencies are all valuable assets to have in an investor’s portfolio. However, even with diversity in mind, there are certainly arguments for either side that make one a better investment than the other.

Cryptocurrencies are digital marvels – assets backed by various methods. Gold and silver, on the other hand, are tried and true assets. Which is better? We’ll break down the pros and cons of each so you can deduce for yourself.

Gold & Silver

As mentioned, gold and silver have been in the hands of investors for centuries. Both have been used as currency in various time periods, though now they’re generally used as a hedge for an uncertain economy. This means investors are often buying and selling both, which can make either’s price a little unpredictable. Each is used in jewelry and has various other use cases that make them a safe future investment as well.

Let’s break down the pros and cons.

Pros of Investing in Gold & Silver

Gold and silver are each somewhat rare, the former more than the latter. That makes buying gold on a site like Gold Coin a good investment if you can afford lots of it, though the asset price hardly makes significant strides.

Silver, on the other hand, has many price fluctuations. This is due to there being more of the asset, so it’s consistently entering and leaving the market. Silver is also a genuinely solid entry in any portfolio simply because it’s often profitable shortly after it crashes. Other investments might take longer to do so.

Compared to cryptocurrencies, however, gold and silver are significantly more stable in terms of price. Those who want to avoid that level of volatility should feel safe here. It’s hard to go wrong with either of these assets that have been around for so long.

Cons of Investing in Gold & Silver

Depending on your perspective, a lot of the pros listed can also be cons. For example, these assets can be an expensive start to investing. Those who can’t afford the initial entry might not enjoy gold’s relative stability or might purchase silver at the wrong time and lose out.

Some investors might want more volatility to profit faster. While silver and gold both do offer a decent rate of return, it’s generally after some patience.

Also, if you buy silver or gold bullion, many dealers charge premium prices on coins – especially for the latter. That’s not to mention how expensive it can cost to store them. Doing one’s research and buying from the lowest price possible is essential here.

Cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies are touted by many as the future of investing. However, they’re a largely untested space that many long-time investors are reluctant to trust. But there’s no denying the potential for profit here – many have already experienced that.

Let’s break down the pros and cons.

Pros of Investing in Cryptocurrencies

Cryptocurrencies are relatively easy to invest in. Simply create an account on an exchange and buy away with your preferred payment method. There is also a wide variety of them to purchase – you can spend on the ones that interest you most.

Also, cryptocurrencies aren’t controlled by any central authority. There’s no company to worry about. The asset exists on its own, and for some, that’s a massive boon.

Considering cryptocurrencies are so new, many believe there’s nowhere to go but up. If you’re patient, you might see a massive return in the long-term with cryptocurrency. Even short-term traders might profit from volatility if they’re lucky.

Cons of Investing in Cryptocurrencies

These assets are largely unregulated. It’s difficult to calculate taxes and learn how to store them, among other things. Many cryptocurrencies are also scam projects and might cost you more than they’ll earn you.

Volatility is another issue. Assets like Bitcoin have jumped literal thousands in less than 24 hours. For some, that uncertainty is too much, and they’d rather stick to traditional assets.

Plus, with how untested this industry is, it’s also possible all cryptocurrencies will fizzle out in the coming decades. Those adverse to risk might want to stay far away from crypto assets.

Working in the Stock Market

Stock market jobs are well-compensated, but they aren’t for everyone. These jobs are competitive to land and can require long hours early in your career. They are interesting, and for individuals who love a job that requires them to be constantly at their best and always learning, they can be a great choice. Working in the stock market also allows you to build a solid career with excellent benefits and healthy retirement. If you are considering this career, you can see why working in the stock market would be appealing. The idea of finding a job that puts you in the best position for your future is undoubtedly appealing. In order to meet your goals, there are several things you can do to be successful.

Explore Options

When talking about a career in the stock market, there are several options. Investment bankers act as a sales agent. Their job is to help find investors for businesses. This is grueling. In addition to the sales aspect, an investment banker must be able to estimate a company’s value and ensure that it is working in a manner that meets regulatory standards. A financial manager is responsible for the overall financial health of a company. Their job requires them to regularly review financial documents, such as budgets and forecasts. They work closely with others in the company to build a plan for future decisions.

Compliance analysts work to develop and implement compliance programs within a company. They keep track of a huge amount of data and create reports that ensure the material makes sense to investors and stakeholders. These are just some of the options available for individuals interested in working in a career related to the stock market. As you can see, each requires different skills, education, and has different responsibilities. There are many options available for anyone interested in this type of work.

Value Education

The single biggest way to land your dream job is to make sure to attend college and earn an undergraduate degree. Working in the stock market requires a high level of dedication and the employees are handed a great deal of responsibility. It is unlikely that any job application will find a position, or even an interview, without a degree. If you are looking for options to pay for school, consider private student loans. Even if you have a limited credit history you could be approved for student loans without a cosigner.

Build Confidence

Everyone needs someone they can bounce ideas off of, talk about concerns with, and confide in without judgment. Landing a job in finance is tough and it is easy to become discouraged. Having someone in your network that you’re able to review your resume with, practice mock interviews, and even giving the interview outfit a once over are subtle, but important ways of ensuring your success. They say that first impressions are everything, and you want to be able to present a confident and skilled potential employee, even during these difficult times when remote communication is the new normal.

Quick & Easy Guide to Trading Penny Stocks

Description: Penny stocks are stocks that typically trade for under $5 per share. They are usually characterized by high volatility. That means they are risky. Let’s explore further!

Introducing Penny Stocks Trading

Penny stocks were popularized in the mass-market with movies like the Wolf of Wall Street starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill Matthew McConaughey, and Margot Robbie. It was based upon the real-life experience of shamed Wall Street penny stocks trader, Jordan Belfort. What made the movie such a sensation was the electric energy generated off trading activity, and the indulgent benefits that Wall Street’s finest enjoyed from that. The hyped-up Hollywood version of penny stocks trading may be true for some, but it’s certainly not the standard for most.

Reality Check Tip: Penny stocks trading is inherently risky and the majority of traders will lose money. Only those who follow a regimented trading strategy, with ongoing learning will succeed.

Penny stocks do not cost 1 penny; on the contrary, these stocks can range widely in price from fractions of a penny up to $5 per share. The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) defines penny stocks precisely that way. If a stock trades on the New York Stock Exchange, the NASDAQ, the S&P 500, or the Dow Jones Industrial Average and it is priced at $5+, it is not considered to be a penny stock. Upon further inspection, it is clear that penny stocks are small cap stocks, since the number of shares X price per share is a small amount, compared to mid-cap stocks and large-cap stocks. For this reason, you’re more likely to find penny stocks on the Russell 3000, Russell 2000, and Russell 1000 index than you are on the S&P 500, NASDAQ, or DJIA

How Do You Trade Penny Stocks?

That’s the million-dollar question! Truth be told, there are differences in the way a trader approaches penny stocks trading, compared to trading blue-chip stocks. For one thing, penny stocks are largely unproven stocks, with nothing more than a strategic blueprint vis-a-vis the company’s mission. They are either in the start-up phase, or in the infancy stage of the company’s operations. They have a lot of upside potential, but they’re also characterized by tremendous risk.

Having said that, it is incumbent upon traders to employ due diligence, careful market analysis, and lots of reading before dabbling in the penny stocks arena. Timothy Sykes explains how to trade penny stocks in an article which covers every component of the penny stocks market in easy-to-understand language. It’s important to read up as much as possible before you drop anchor with a trading platform and broker. If things don’t work out for penny stocks companies, stocks can plummet overnight, and companies can close up shop immediately.

It won’t hurt to get tutored by penny stocks gurus, watch webinars, trading videos, and read up extensively on market dynamics for these volatile financial instruments. Many new traders and investors are drawn to penny stocks like moths to light. They are cheap, and if they boom, there is minimal capital outlay for tremendous upside potential. The trick to trading penny stocks is twofold: picking the right stocks at the right price, and being able to decisively cut your losses, and take profit. Too many traders stay in trades too long. If the market goes against them, they drag their feet in expectation of a reversal, or if the market is bullish, greed kicks in.

Warren Buffett the legendary investor said it best, ‘Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful.’ But what exactly does that mean? In the case of penny stocks trading, you should not necessarily stay the course when everyone is holding on to stocks expecting the price to continue appreciating, and it also means that when everybody is selling off penny stocks, that may be the opportune time for you to buy any stocks – the proverbial buying on the dip. All of this posturing and pandering doesn’t really teach you how to trade penny stocks – that’s coming up next!

 The Nitty-Gritty of Trading Penny Stocks

It is generally accepted that an investor believes in the company that he or she is investing in. An investment is a long-term value proposition where the current price is expected to appreciate over time. Otherwise, why invest? Trading is not investing. Many people have an incredibly difficult time understanding the differences between these two mindsets. When you trade stocks, you don’t have to have confidence in the company either way. What you do need is an opinion based on sound reasoning, educated assessments, and decisive action.

That means you need to have an idea of what is likely to happen to the stock price per unit time. Take emotion out of it. You don’t have to believe in the company, or be invested in the long-term well-being of the stock. Trading, particularly day trading is a short-term vocation. Your relationship with the stock is impersonal – there is no need to get attached to it as part of your financial portfolio. What you want is for the stock to either appreciate in price, or depreciate in price, and profit accordingly.

Let’s take the case of company ABC with a stock price of $1 per share. As a penny stocks trader, you may be encouraged by the technology used by this company, or the interest that has been shown in the company’s products and/or services. How would you know? The media. Research will provide you with valuable information such as financial reports, press releases, mentions in newspapers, magazines, and other online sources. Generally, positive news related to a penny stock will result in price appreciation. Negative news will result in price depreciation. By keeping your finger on the pulse, staying the course, and making calculated decisions, you can generate favorable returns from penny stocks.

Volatility is a key component of penny stocks trading. You will see prices whipsaw wildly at any given time. That’s why leading penny stocks traders strongly advise against using market orders because your trades will execute at the wrong prices and that could blow you out completely. Most penny stocks trade on Pink Sheets, and listing services such as OTCBB. Reputable traders tend to discourage the use of Pink Sheets since they are not registered with the SEC and they’re riskier propositions.

While some traders eschew volatility [since it’s difficult to stabilize your financial portfolio when prices are going all over the place], it’s absolutely necessary for you to generate a profit. There are those who will never touch penny stocks because the market is saturated with dishonest companies, but even so, careful planning can help you to safely navigate these waters and generate small, incremental profits over the long-term, which ultimately become substantial over time.

Thomson Mpinganjira: FDH Bank Gifts MK450 Million to Malawian Football

In September 2019, FDH Bank pledged MK450 million in sponsorship for Malawian football in a five-year deal. The sponsorship will fund a national league cup at a cost of MK90 million per year, providing an MK53.6 million prize fund. Under the new deal, the competition winners will receive MK25 million, a record sum in domestic football.

Levi Nkunika, FDH Bank’s Head of Marketing, explained that as a homegrown Malawian financial institution, the bank had come up with the historic deal to invest in Malawi’s future football potential. He said that no bank believes more in the potential of Malawian football than FDH Bank, which is why the organisation first partnered with the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) in 2016. He pointed out that Malawian football was at its lowest level in the country at that point, but FDH Bank recognised its potential.

A subsidiary of FDH Financial Holdings, FDH Bank was founded by prominent Malawian businessman Dr Thomson Mpinganjira, who also established First Discount House and FDH Money Bureau. Thomson Mpinganjira was Malawi’s first stockbroker, helping to establish the Malawi Stock Exchange in 2000 and serving as its first CEO, before opening his own commercial bank in 2008. Headquartered in Blantyre, FDH Bank has grown to become a leading Malawian financial services provider. Its parent company, FDH Financial Holdings, employs over 800 people worldwide.

Mr Nkunika said that while some people saw trouble, FDH Bank recognised great success and opportunities through the partnership, pointing out that Malawian football had made great progress and had a bright future. Unveiling the deal, President Walter Nyamilandu announced that FAM no longer required investment from other corporate sponsors, since it already had the optimum number. He suggested instead that other companies channel their efforts towards underserved categories, for example, women’s and youth football tournaments.

The FAM President said that FDH had raised the bar for Malawian football sponsorship in the country, with no other bank backing the sport so strongly. Mr Nkunika said that while previously MK25 million paid for the whole competition, thanks to FDH Bank’s generosity, this sum would go to the competition winners alone. He said this illustrated that Malawian football deserves the best, not the leftovers, acknowledging that the sport had found a father in FDH Bank, supporting it in both the good times and the bad.

The deal came in the wake of FDH Bank investing MK180 million in sponsorship for the Flames. The bank also sponsors grassroots football by providing MK10 million in funding for the Mayor’s Trophy staged in Mzuzu, Lilongwe, Zomba and Blantyre.

In 2019 alone, FDH Bank pledged more than MK160 million to sports events, including investing MK1 million in the non-title boxing match between Limbani Masamba and Chikondi Makawa at Blantyre’s Motel Paradise in September 2019.

Jabber Alide, Competitions Committee Chairperson for FAM announced that, thanks to FDH Bank’s contribution, 16 regional teams would receive an MK500,000 starter-pack as well as two match balls, with runners-up receiving MK8 million, semi-finalists receiving MK2 million, and quarterfinalists receiving MK1 million. Alide announced that there would also be individual awards, such as for the top scorer, earning players up to MK200,000 per award.
