Does any of our Hogvillians subscribe to Motley Fool's "Stock Advisor" premium service? 

Or any other service that picks stock?

Thanks in advance!!

I avoid MF myself. I lot of their touts are made by persons owning the stock they're promoting so watch out for that.

All these services are like guys on CNBC or elsewhere. I listen or read their touting of a stock and say, "makes sense" to me. I could probably own shares in every company or ETF if I followed through on my "makes sense" thoughts after their pitch.

I am the same way with almost every investment I read about! They all seem to be good ideas.

Well obviously each to his own. However, I subscribe to the service; and yes, I realize the team there that recommends the stocks also own most of them. This can be looked at two ways: The first is they're merely "front-running the stocks" (ie touting the stocks to investors so they can merely drive up the stocks they already own) OR secondly they actually believe in the long term outlook for their recommendations and honestly plan to own their holdings for a number or years-Tom Gardner one of the owners of the service-states a minimum of five years. I also like the fact that the folks making the recommendations have actual "skin in the game". They're actually at financial risk along with everyone else. If they're recommendations don't work out they're also vulnerable to losing money. Personally I've found the service to be HIGHLY RELIABLE. I've followed their picks both on "paper" and with some of my own personal monies and while they're not perfect, and no one ever is, I have found their success ration to be north or 85%. And yes, most of their recommendations are targeted toward long term time frames. Short term trading for them would be extremely unusual.

Another service I've begun using over the past couple of years is one called Total Wealth Research (www.totalwealthresearch.com). It's run by a long time Wall Street veteran by the name of Keith Fitz-Gerald. Keith is very easy to follow and really does a great job of going through long term "unstoppable trends" such as AI, self-driving cars, robots, defense and aerospace-particularly drone technology-etc. He takes the approach that if you can identify future trends in society that people won't be able to do without and then invest in the best managed, most forward thinking companies/industries who address those trends that you should have great success in building wealth. Again, I've done both "paper" and actual monetary investing with his recommendations. His picks are outstanding. One thing that does separate him from the Motley Fool group is that some of his selections can be shorter term in timing.

In the end I think it ultimately comes down to who you've learned to trust and who you feel comfortable in work with. Obviously no one's going to correct 100% of the time. However, as with most things you typically "get what you pay for". Neither of these services is cheap (and much of that depends on the level of services you choose); however, I found that I easily pay for whatever I'm paying in the form of appreciation, growth, income and last, but not least, a far better understanding of the economy, market trends, current/future investment themes and economic/market forecasts. And since "knowledge is power" I feel I've gained a lot of that.

I like the MF advertising articles that are titled something like, "The stock that Buffett wishes he owned but can't buy", and of course it will not tell you what that stock is but will tell you that you can subscribe for $199/yr and get that stock name. Thus, my opinion of MF is that it is little better, if any, that a gambling tout service trying to get a annual fee out of you for their tout newsletter or website.

Best of luck.

LOL. Why am I not surprised?

But, kudos to you for admitting it here. Also, I will not follow anyone with last name of "Fitz-Gerald". Get rid of the hyphen.

As I said, to each his own when it comes to any/all investment publications/newsletters. You might want to look up exactly what the expression "to each his own" literally means. And as for the spelling of the last name: It's apparently how he spells it; if you don't like it then I suggest you take it up with him 'cause quite frankly you're obviously confusing me with someone who actually gives a s%it what you think about it. I'm merely relaying the spelling of his name as the publication states it.

BTW I see the new year hasn't improved your mood or compression skills one bit. Then again, another year just means an even grumpier, older fart in Memmppphhiiissss.

In before HiM arrogantly proclaims that hes too important to give tips to this thread and Vantage says a 12 month period is too short to adequately judge his picks.

That would have been my response to that idiot's suggestion. I'm not giving away my portfolio, or any part of it, for free.

And you actually think anyone would be stupid enough to pay a dime for it ??? And yet YOU were insulted that MF would want to charge for their recommendations. I have a really strong hunch they were be FAR more justified in doing so.

A key difference is that while I'm willing to give out some ideas, I also don't claim to be the next Warren Buffett or whoever one wants to anoint as the god of investing. Besides, as some would observe: "You get what you pay for" ;) :) 8)

I am being well compensated for my investment management skills.

Insulted hardly. Just shocked. MF is worthless.

Hey, getting paid $5.00 is NOT what I would say is being "well compensated for my investment management skills". And as for MF-what part of the phrase "each to his own" NOT reach your minimal brain matter ??? Again, I could care nothing, zero, zilch, nada about your opinion. It's just that-an opinion (i.e. your thought/attitude about a subject). In the end that's all it is. No more, no less; whether or not other people agree or disagree with my personal assessment of MF  ultimately it means the same as yours (i.e. not much). Everyone is free to make their own choices and decisions. That's the purpose of a brain.

My comment was merely a darn at HiM for being a trolling prick with the biggest ego.  He may or may not be good at what he does, but I've found most guys like him aren't actually any good.

You have no idea what I do or how I accomplish it. Thus, your general comment is stupid at best. "Most guys like him..." Really? Allow me to comment on what you do and how poorly you do i...in my opinion.

I subscribe to the Oxford Club, specifically The Oxford Income Letter by Marc Lichtenfeld. He is focused primarily on dividend investing. I have faith in him as several of his recommendations have done well for me over the past year that I have subscribed.  Lichtenfeld has also penned a book called "Get Rich with Dividends" which I'd recommend as well.

Since you mentioned dividends, have you ever played with proshares?  They seem to pride themselves on dividend investing and growth.
