Motley Fool Stock Advisor is The Motley Fool's flagship stock ideas newsletter. It's run by Fool co-founders (and brothers) David and Tom Gardner, and it has a fantastic history of thrashing the market. (More on that in a minute.)

If you're thinking about trying a Stock Advisor subscription, now's a great time to buy. Here's why.

1. How would you like to beat the market by 3x?

How would it make you feel? Well, ask the Stock Advisor team – because they've done it (returns as of 7/17/2017). And this isn't some flash-in-the-pan, "we made 3% yesterday and the S&P 500 made 1% yesterday, so we'll call that a triple" – this outperformance is the result of over a decade of hard work. Check out the chart below.

Of course, no one can predict the future. But with this kind of investing record, it's no surprise that the Stock Advisor family has expanded to hundreds of thousands of members today. After all, who wouldn't want to triple the S&P 500.

2. Deep research and regular updates

The Motley Fool Stock Advisor team is always on the lookout for big trends and opportunities to benefit investors – after all, they're beating the market 3-to-1 because they've gotten in on disruptive companies early! From time to time the team sees a big opportunity – whether e-commerce, driverless cars, or some other disruption – and will publish a report detailing the potential and how they'd recommend members invest in this trend.

The Stock Advisor team also publishes regular updates on every stock they've recommended, including coverage whenever news material enough to move the stock occurs, and quarterly earnings wrap-ups. When their thesis on a stock changes, they also update subscribers with new thinking, and even the occasional "hold" and "sell" rating when a company's valuation has gotten out of whack with its opportunity.

3. A strong investor community

One of the most undervalued benefits of a Motley Fool Stock Advisor subscription is access to a massive and engaged investor community. Thousands of subscribers regularly post to the Stock Advisor message boards to talk stocks, personal finance, and whatever else may be on their minds. The members – their willingness to teach and learn, their collaborative spirit, and their devotion to investing – may be the most valuable part of Stock Advisor.

4. Stock Advisor is releasing new stock recs soon!

Motley Fool Stock Advisor is a stock ideas service, so David, Tom, and team provide a steady stream of ideas to subscribers. Each month Team David and Team Tom each pick a stock as an official recommendation, and separately choose five stocks they've already picked as "best buys now" – particularly timely opportunities for smart investors.

From time to time, either Team David or Team Tom will "re-rec" a stock that is particularly high-conviction. This coveted designation has only been given to a few particularly amazing companies – think stocks like Netflix, Apple, and Disney.

Don't miss out on the next amazing pick. Click here to learn more about how you can get on the list to receive these awesome recommendations.

5. Special discount if you buy today!

You get all this (and more) at a cost of $199 a year. (Except we're running a special discount right now – A year for $99, or three for $159 – that's 73% off!)

We don't know how long this discount will last, so don't delay. We're confident you'll love Stock Advisor. So confident, in fact, that we offer a 30-day membership-fee-back guarantee. If you're unhappy, call us up in the first 30 days, and you'll get every dime you spent on the  membership fee back, no questions asked.

That's our pledge to you. So what are you waiting for?
