Motley Fool Everlasting Portfolio Terms and Conditions of Service
Welcome to Motley Fool Everlasting Portfolio (the "Service"). This page sets forth the special Terms and Conditions by which The Motley Fool provides you with access to the Service (the "Terms"). It supplements the Fool's Rules (our standard terms and conditions), which are incorporated by reference. By subscribing to, and using the Service you are agreeing to abide by these Terms as well as the Fool's Rules INCLUDING THE BINDING ARBITRATION AND CLASS ACTION WAIVER DETAILED IN SECTION 10 OF THE FOOL’S RULES.
Motley Fool Everlasting Portfolio
The Service is composed of real-money investments and is not an actively managed portfolio. The Everlasting Portfolio is funded by The Motley Fool, LLC on a quarterly basis and consequently, any realized gains or losses will belong to The Motley Fool. The Everlasting Portfolio will only contain long positions, and we plan on holding all positions for a minimum of 5 years from their initial purchase date. Special circumstances, like an acquisition or delisting, may require the sale of a position before 5 years have passed. When that happens, we will give guidance to all current members in advance of any action by the portfolio.
The Motley Fool strives to operate with the highest level of integrity and to treat everyone — our customers, employees and community — fairly. With that in mind, we’ve put in place guidelines for our trading in the Everlasting Portfolio. These rules are in addition to our standard trading rules. They include:
- The Everlasting Portfolio is committed to making its transaction at the first available time compliant with our trading rules, but not less than 24 hours after the time the trade alert has been published.
- If a Motley Fool Service has issued an Intent or Alert to trade, The Everlasting Portfolio will refrain from issuing its trade alert in the security for 24 hours.
From time to time, other features may be added or removed without notice. Special features, exclusive reports and other content may be made available to members of The Everlasting Portfolio.
Please note there may be occasions where The Everlasting Portfolio takes a position with respect to a security that is counter to that of another Fool Premium Service. Another affiliate of The Motley Fool provides investment products that may hold securities mentioned in our publications. Editorial personnel have no nonpublic knowledge of the affiliate's holdings, and the affiliate's personnel have no knowledge of any editorial content before it is published.
The Everlasting Portfolio bases its actions and forecasts on techniques, information and sources believed to be reliable in the past and cannot guarantee future accuracy and results. The Motley Fool is a company of investors writing for investors and as such, the writers (and/or the company) may own stocks mentioned by The Everlasting Portfolio. For more information about writer disclosure, as well as a list of places where you can view stocks our writers and analysts own, see our disclosure policy.
A Word of Caution
As stated above, the Service may use a mix of investing strategies within the portfolio. Regardless of the action taken by the Service, it is in the capacity of a responsible investor and not a speculator. That doesn't mean our trades will always turn out to be winners. It means that we have done our best to do our homework and consider the inherent risks before pledging our money. We urge you to do the same.
We want to help you make money. We also want to provide you with a more enriching and useful experience along the way. So while we may ask you a few questions to help direct you to portfolios and other content we think may interest you, The Motley Fool is not in the business of rendering personalized or individualized investment advice. We don't (and can't) know your financial situation, risk tolerances, or investing objectives. Accordingly, the information provided along with the decisions made and actions taken by the Service do not constitute a recommendation that a particular portfolio, security, strategy or action taken is suitable for you, or any specific person for that matter.
The Service bases its recommendations and forecasts on techniques, information and sources believed to be reliable in the past and cannot guarantee future accuracy and results.
