That's a wrap! 2017 is in the books and we're finishing strong! Once again we'll hit the mailbag, make a resolution, throw down a little poetry, and think about why we play the game. Happy Follydays!
We begin today's show with a review of 5 Stocks To Put Under Your Tree—gifts that keep on giving picked on the podcast this time last year.

Way back in 1996, we released the first edition of The Motley Fool Investment Guide. Our aim then, as it is now, was to educate, amuse and enrich individual investors, and to show how anyone can take control of their own finances. Today we’re announcing a brand new, completely revised edition for 2017 and beyond. Who is it for? Where should you position your dollars today? Why is a book better than the internet? All that and more on today’s show!

Make your organization’s corporate culture more engaging, rewarding, happier, more productive… more Foolish! David welcomes back return guests Kara Chambers and Lee Burbage.
This week David offers a new take on the term “story stocks.” He and a few of his fellow Fools share some of their favorite stock stories. Some will make you laugh, some cry, and all are Motley.
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.
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.
Last year around this time we released a two-part podcast entitled David's Biggest Losers. Let's make that a tradition here and talk about another half-dozen stocks that have performed poorly over the past 3 years. We don't like to dwell on failure—and indeed can learn a lot more by studying our wins—but it's good to eat some humble pie once in a while and remember that we don't have to win them all to win the game.
Frameworks – especially those that can be explained in a matrix – are common in investing, but what should rule-breaking investors think about them? David Gardner discusses the pros and cons of those ubiquitous style boxes, and shares a couple of his own.
We all feel like the world's worst investor sometimes. David coaches on how to handle yourself - and your portfolio - when the market is down and your confidence in your investing abilities has been dragged down with it.
David Gardner shares three principles he uses when evaluating potential rule-breaking investments -- plus several principles from our listeners.
Wrapping up this two-part series on losers, David explores the lessons we should -- and shouldn't -- learn from investing mistakes.
