2000 Stocks for Dad Returns

Stocks for Dad is an idea feature and not a stock recommendation feature. Every dad, and every Fool for that matter, should research any stock they're interested in and make their own decisions. Though The Motley Fool does advocate a long-term, buy-to-hold strategy, we do look at the results of each year's Stocks for Dad a year later. Here are the results for last year's stocks:

Each Stock for Dad represents the opinion of one Fool only and should in no way be taken as the opinion of either The Motley Fool, Inc. or the company in question, or as representative of anyone or anything other than that specific Fool's thoughts. Which can be way out there, so do your homework, and review The Motley Fool's disclosure policy
