Motley Fool Pro is a bad joke. It barely hedges anything. All it does is sell covered calls or sell out-of-the-money puts (which do NOT protect against a severe decline) and purchase high-cost, tax-inefficient inverse ETFs. Heaven help anyone who actually wastes money subscribing to that "service."

Henry, thank you for joining in the discussion. I am a fan of Morningstar. You can confirm for me, though, if they report returns according to your standards. Now, we are working toward improving our reporting quality. One of the biggest steps we've taken in that direction is just to invest our own money behind services. That makes tracking pretty easy. I'm not sure of other membership services that invest their own money behind their ideas (and do so after giving all members a chance to transact). Another way for you to evaluate our services is to go to the grandaddy of reporting standards -- Mark Hulbert -- and I think you'll find his work confirming that we're adding a lot of value. One final metric is the renewal rates of members which run two times higher than the industry average for investment newsletters.

I'm guessing from your perspective that you're best suited for TMF Pro and Jeff Fischer. Jeff deploys options in a conservative, prudent, productive manner. He uses hedges. He is beating the market by all tracking methodologies. And he's doing so with reduced volatility. It is very early in the service, but I'm guessing you would really enjoy it.

And if you choose not to become a member, I hope you continue to enjoy our hard work every day for free. Further, I hope you are finding happiness with your investments and in your life everyday, Fool.
