You may have heard of The Motley Fool – we've been educating investors for over 20 years – and of Motley Fool Stock Advisor, the flagship stock-picking service run by our co-founder David Gardner. Before you buy a Motley Fool Stock Advisor subscription, we wanted to provide you with some Motley Fool Stock Advisor reviews so you can decide if a Stock Advisor subscription is right for you.

Before deciding to buy anything, you should read reviews online to know what you're buying. (And, for the record, you shouldn't just read reviews on our site – search around the internet, and you'll find plenty more.)

But we wanted to take some time and show you what our members are saying, as one of the many datapoints to help you make an informed decision with your money, how you spend it, and whose stock-picking recommendations you should trust.

How Stock Advisor helps members achieve financial freedom

Our sincere hope for our members is that they achieve financial freedom – with work being optional and financial stress a fading memory. So it's always great when we hear from members who have done just that based on our stock-picking.

Mark H. told us that, "Because of Stock Advisor, I can work if I want to work and I can play when I want to play. I don't have to work, but I have to play, and I'm able to give more back to the community as well because I have the time to do it."

And if you're thinking of financial freedom in terms of how much faster you can retire, we've heard from a number of members about the clear benefits our services provide.

For example, Matt Z. had this to say about The Motley Fool's stock picks: "It's really changed things for me in terms of when I can retire. It's given me the opportunity to choose when I retire and at least take five years off my retirement date."

That's a powerful endorsement, and we aim to keep providing world-class market-beating recommendations to each every one of our hundreds of thousands of Stock Advisor members.

How to use your Motley Fool Stock Advisor subscription

We can provide all kinds of great stock tips, but the key is learning how to use your subscription effectively.

Motley Fool Stock Advisor gives you access to two stock picks a month (one from David Gardner and his team of analysts; one from Team Tom- a handpicked team of analysts) and a list of ten stocks from the recommendation universe (five from each team) that the Stock Advisor team believes to be the "best buys now" in the market. The team covers earnings and major business updates on those stocks too, so you can keep track of your favorite picks. You also get access to a series of special reports on major trends in business and stock ideas for profiting from those trends.

You also get access to an enormous community of fellow investors. We believe this is one of the most undervalued benefits of the service. That's probably why member Brad A. notes: "The advice I always give to new members is read and ask questions....Take advantage of the boards and the members willing to share their insights."

Take advantage of all of these benefits and more in our flagship investing service.

This Stock Advisor review blew us away

Richard M. is a big fan of Motley Fool Stock Advisor, and two of his quotes really stood out to help investors understand the benefits of Stock Advisor. In an interview, he noted that, "The most valuable part of the Stock Advisor service is that at least once a month, and more if you use the service, you're going to get the encouragement and the advice that you need. When things go rocky, then somebody is always there to reassure you and tell you what's really going on, and they'll handle the difference between bailing out of a stock that has clearly run its course and staying in a stock that is just having a wobble."

He also said, "Stock Advisor is still the crown jewel, I think, of all the services." Take it from a member; this is a great opportunity to tap into some of the best stock-picking advice out there.
