We'll keep the horn-tooting and self-back-patting brief, but we're pretty excited here at Fool HQ!

The Hulbert Financial Digest recently ranked the performance of 200-plus investment-advisory services over the last five years (ending June 30).

Topping those 200-plus, Motley Fool services ranked 1, 2, and 3:

  1. Motley Fool Inside Value
  2. Motley Fool Rule Breakers
  3. Motley Fool Stock Advisor  

Sorry, proponents of technical analysis, market timing, and day trading... this is one more bit of evidence favoring long-term, fundamentals-based, buy-to-hold investing. That's the kind of investing the masters of investing use (see Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, Philip Fisher, and Ben Graham) and it's the kind of investing we do here at the Motley Fool.
