The Motley Fool (my opinions)

So, when I started out “fiddling” in the Stock Market (I think my official rank is “fiddler” or maybe “diddler”, but nothing higher than that), I started reading the Motley Fool books (and again, take them out of your Library, they are expen$ive books). I found them interesting and their opinions worth reading (I don’t agree with all of them, but anything that causes you to at least think is a good thing). The books are enjoyable.

I am distressed to notice that the “Fools” have turned their business into a conglomerate (maybe I am jealous, that the Canadian Financial Place is not as big as them?). You need to subscribe to the site to get good information, you need to pay a lot for their opinions and you don’t feel like you are dealing with humans any more, it feels like a brokerage house (and I hate those). What I want are sites that talk about stocks and investing so I can understand it (and there are many great blogs that do that, just look at my lists on the side for a few).


Read the Motley Fool books, but maybe give their subscription services a pass.

Here are a few of their books, again I don’t recommend buying them, but take them out of your library.
