What does it take to scare you, Fool? A Wade Cook seminar? A Canadian penny stock? Your best friend becoming an Amway salesman? Or one of those psychic hotline TV commercials? Yikes! That is scary!

We asked several Fools to share some scary stories with our readers. They dug up some stock tricks and eerie investing tales horrific enough to make your brokerage account curdle. We've compiled quite a ghoulish group, so enter at your own risk.

If tricks and scary stories aren't your bag, never fear. We've also tossed in a couple of sweet-looking stock treats that you might want to examine. And while you're here, check out last year's picks and see how those little morsels fared.

Happy Halloween Fools!
