Why do you call yourselves The Motley Fool?

Our company name is taken from Shakespeare — specifically, As You Like It — whose fools both instructed and amused, and could speak truth to the king … without getting their heads lopped off. And there’s no “company line” when it comes to stocks – hence, the motley.

The Motley Fool has a mission of helping the world invest — better. And we consider everyone who’s along that journey with us to be a Fool, in the best possible sense of the word.
