Discovery RS provides recommendations for buying stock in publicly traded companies. Discovery RS recommends a collection of stocks, and the Motley Fool will purchase those stocks with the intent of holding for five years. Special circumstances, like an acquisition or delisting, may require the sale of a position before 5 years have passed. Discovery RS will make 3 quarterly re-investments of $100,000 in the portfolio, in allocations to be determined. Discovery RS may send occasional guidance, updates, or special reports about those or other stocks, but will not include ongoing coverage or additional recommendations.

Discovery RS will reveal all 40 of the stocks recommended on August 28, 2017. Since all of stocks are being revealed up-front, there is no ongoing coverage, and no additional recommendations included as part of Discovery RS, you are not entitled to a refund after you have purchased.
