There is so much investment misinformation, would you trust a site with the name Motley Fool?

I actually like the Motley Fools. Haven’t looked at them in a while though. They appear on NPR/PRI’s markeplace money often.

@timgemiwingdrewen I am in the top 15% earnings in the U. S. and it is partly due to the information on that very useful website.

@yarnlady I like them. Their research is solid. I have no problem with the fact that the Gardners are witty writers as well. I subscribe to them:
The Motley Fool <Fool@foolsubs.com>

They also have very useful investment calculators.

They are anything but fools when it comes to anything investing!

@Fred931 Thanks, I saw it on one of your other answers.

Actually Motley Fool played an April Fool’s this year, by pretending to reverse their investing strategy 180 degrees and giving outrageously stupid advice.
Unfortunately some fools believed them.
