Good value for the long term investor
As a member since 2007 I can honestly say that these guys will help you make money. In fact I made a trading decision myself and only made a 60-70% return on NFLX instead of a 300% return as they advised to hold the stock and still do. My overall return over these 6-7 years is 33.5% with my current actively held stocks returning 72.7%. Are these good returns? You be the judge. If you are looking for someone to help you move in and out of the market, try one of their other products. Their marketing is pretty heavy handed but as long as my returns are this good I'll overlook it. What's the alternative to someone running a business with three kids? They tell me where I can put my money and I don't have to be an active manager of my portfolio. For me it's worth it.

Solid Track Record, Good Value
I subscribed to Motley Fool Stock Advisor a few years back and found it to be a good experience. I believe they averaged two stock picks per month or so, all of which turned out to be good performers for me at the time. One of the things I liked about their site is they prominantly display the performance of their recommendations. Their reports are concise and well written.

You pay for hundreds of adds and nothing else.
I bought a 2 year subscription for what I thought would be some well thought advise a several stocks month. What I got was hundreds of promotions telling me of the great investment ideas these two could give me for another several hundred dollars. I feel like a total fool, but not the like the guys who are teased into the next step. Totally and completely useless..

Great Service for Buy and Hold Investors
Motley Fool gets a bad rap because their marketing can be over the top, but if you can look past that and actually give the service a try, you'll find Stock Advisor is a great investing service for those who have a buy and hold strategy. This is not a newsletter for investors who are looking to move in and out of the market on the latest technical indicators or momentum moves. You can get more in depth information of the pros and cons of the service at motleyfoolreview.com

But the key to being successful with any Motley Fool service is to have a long term mindset, so if you are more of a day trader or short term trader, this won't be for you.

Stock Advisor gives you solid picks backed up by an excellent long term performance record. The community and the analyst team are very knowledgeable and the boards are excellent. I recommend Stock Advisor especially if you are a new investor specifically because of the great community.

They've got a 30 day trial as well, so it's a no lose situation if you want to try it for yourself.

Don't do it....please don't.
After reading the comments, I decided to register to write a review for this one. I have been a member for a year, and they market their picks very well and convince you that their picks will certainly make you money. When I first purchased the package, Netflix (NFLX) has been a "buy now" and a "core stock" (price ranged from $220 - $300) along with amazon, apple and a few others. I was confident enough to invest in their picks and ended up loosing $27,000 for the year. Not the package that they make it seem. Please, stay away for your own good.

Waste of money
There are several major problems with Motley Fool Stock Advisor and their products in general. First, they advertise their performance against the S&P 500 Index which can be misleading because if the index is down big one year and their picks are down slightly less then they advertise that as a positive. Why not just state actual percentage gains/losses? Also they advocate a buy and hold strategy which can absolutely wipe investors out. They also advocate to be 100% invested and hold no cash or very little cash. They also want a person to hold lots of different stocks so that they are diversified. This newsletter is for those who know nothing about investing. You're better off staying away and finding something else.

Honest, fun and educational with a few great picks
They have had a few great picks over the years. Follow Dave instead of Tom because Dave is much better with his picks.

They have beaten the market handily over the years.

They believe in long-term investing. They look for most larger US companies that are growing and have lots more growth potential.

Good value
This is a good value newsletter for the longer term buy and hold individual as it's relatively cheap with a lot of good information. I have renewed this newsletter for over 6 years now and while I haven't taken many of the picks they have recommended, the ones I have taken have done very well. The main reason I don't follow them much any more is that I have become more of a trader and don't like to hold positions for a long period of time which is what this newsletter is all about. Also the volume of picks is so large now that you can't possibly have a position in them all so you are forced to just cherry pick some off the best buy now list as they don't close positions very often. But, they have had some huge winners over the years and post their performance record verses the S&P over that time period which they have beat handily. Good newsletter for the price.
