My TOP 10 reasons Motley Fool makes anyone a Professional Investor



April 16, 2009 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: F

My TOP 10 reasons Motley Fool makes anyone a Professional Investor:

10:  You can watch other All Star investors panic, pull their hair out, scream "There's blood in the streets," so you don't have to.

9:  It's in color.. Could you imagine Motely Fool being in Black and White Text with a Grey Background.....? .....  and the ticker symbols blink just like old school Internet websites?

8:  Limits its rateable stock listings to Market Cap 100 million or more and Share Price $1.50 or more so you don't waste your money on penny stocks that have nearly tripled in value since the bottom like (AXL, SIRI, BBI, C..).

7:  Saytam Computing (SAY) was recommended here.  What other website analyst displays their dirty laundry on their "Recommendations" sheet for all to see?  That's honesty and that's seeing mistakes and understanding them so you don't make them yourself.

6:  Discovering Motley Fool All Stars are worse stock pickers than you is a boost to your self-esteem and confidence. 

5:  After putting your hard earned money into a Stock, Motley Fool's All Stars can show you all the ways your company sucks and you are the worst investor in the world for bothering to buy shares.

4:  You can track how much your portfolio is outperforming the S&P 500 just prior to providing ratings to 2,000 other stocks, thus crowding your listings so you can not even locate your portfolio in your profile anymore.

3:  In 5 star system where 5 stars is the best and 1 star represents every stock in your portfolio, you get to see the investment communities expectations of how well you will do in the long term.

2:  You get to read other peoples reasons for RED THUMBING your investment strategies so you can get intelligent analysis like: 

"I'll probably lose caps points, but I hate the company so I don't care."     or
"You're an idiot if you buy shares of this stock"   or
"Everybody in America including my CAT is unemployed so the whole darn Market deserves my Red Thumb" 

1:  Where else can you read an article from a Motley Fool Author stating why he believes buying FORD Common Stock is not such a bad idea.....just mere weeks prior to the Share Price nearly tripling in value?

TMF should have a huge charm that players get when their portfolio is full of stuff that no sane person would buy or short shares in so that you know to skip over them depsite their rating.

Obviously written by an All-Star who thought, "Are they talkin' about me?"  I know that feeling. +1
