David Gardner, co-founder of The Motley Fool, is among the most respected and trusted sources on investing. As a best-selling author, hugely successful stock picker, and financial authority, David has led The Motley Fool’s growth into a worldwide investment and financial advisory services company.
Each week David shares his insights into today's most innovative and disruptive publicly traded companies -- and how to profit from them by following his signature “Rule Breaker Investing” principles.
It’s been just over a year since Britain decided to leave the European Union and David made five Brexit-inspired stock picks. While those were meant as long-term picks (3 years at least), it’s fun to check on their progress. The FTSE 100 (or Footsie) is up since then. How we doin’?
David interviews McKenna Haase, a 20-year-old student, race car driver, entrepreneur, and Rule Breaking investor. They discuss how she started racing, what it is like to be one of the only females in her sport, and how she balances racing, school, and her two companies. Plus McKenna shares some of her favorite stock picks and investing heroes.
It's the end of June and you've outdone yourselves again! Our mailbag is full and we've got a packed show. Today David tackles how to build a new portfolio from scratch, considers whether to sell or add to losers, and attempts to solve an ancient, riddle that left Plato pondering. All that and more on this week's mailbag. Thanks to Harry's for supporting The Motley Fool. Get your Free Trial — go to Harrys.com/fool
Let's face it, the stock market has been a raging bull for a long time now. It can't go on forever, right? It might even crash, and hard! So, what's a Rule Breaker to do? Pick 5 stocks that are hitting all-time highs, of course! Because great companies are worth owning. Because today's highs will be tomorrow's memories. And, well, because that's just the way we roll.
By now you have heard the news of the shooting at a Congressional baseball practice here in Alexandria, just a few blocks from us here at Fool HQ. In response, David urges us to maintain independent thinking, civility, a motley influence, and the humility that is the core of Foolishness.
Are you concerned by the “market drop” we experienced over the last few days? If you’re a Rule Breaking Investor, chances are it hit you pretty hard, and that can be painful. But if you’re a Rule Breaking Investor, chances are you’re also going to be holding some of the best companies for a decade or more, and that is sure to cheer you up. As David has said before, and will say again, “Stocks always go down faster than they go up, but they always go up more than they go down.”
You may not yet be familiar with Zack Kanter, but the self-described entrepreneur, speaker, futurist, writer, amateur chef, and all-around nerd is someone you should get to know if you’re curious about the future. Today Zack is here to talk with David about why Ford and Geico should fear the autonomous car, how an entrepreneur like you could improve the news, and Amazon’s path to becoming the world’s most valuable company.
It is the last day of the month, which means, as always, it’s mailbag time! Today David looks at the Great Man Theory vs. the Cultural View of investing, whether to invest a little bit at a time or in big lump sums, and why the market’s P/E ratio shouldn’t guide your investing decisions. Plus, another misattributed quote and quite possibly a dirty joke!
The sun is settling in, the pool is almost open, grills are heating up... That’s right: ‘tis the season for graduation speeches! Any day now, successful alumni will be returning to their alma maters to dole out optimism and advice to bright-eyed, graduating seniors. One such speech from back in 1995 is worth revisiting, and today David does just that with special guest, Guy Kawasaki. Join us as we look ahead from the past in this, our 100th episode!
