Multiply share price by shares outstanding, add a pinch of Trebek, mix sports metaphors liberally, and you get The Market Cap Game Show! Matty Argersinger joins us once again to see if he can beat you at David's devilish game.
Rule Breakers are often loud and abrupt, like the sound of shattering glass. But sometimes the most profound Rule Breakers are quiet—changing the landscape over time with gentle consistency. Fred Rogers, through his long-running TV Show, Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, broke through the noise and brashness of his time with a soft-spoken kindness that shaped generations.
This interview was recorded in 2002. Won't You Be My Neighbor, a documentary about Fred Rogers, opens in theaters this weekend.
Not every stock is a "story stock" but every stock does have a story. Today David, some Motley Fool analysts, and special guest Dan Pink all share their stock stories, and the lessons learned along the way.

As we wind down Conscious Capitalism Month, we can’t help but feel optimistic about investing. In fact, we might be “suffering” from too much of a good thing! Are there too many great companies out there? Are we missing out? Have we bought too many? And can you remind me about that Gardner-Kretzmann Continuum thingy again?
It's an especially Motley show today; a little of this, a little of that. Thoughts from an old show, a new essay, some borrowed wisdom, and a BLUE stock pick. And, hey, what's that in your shoe?

If you want to surround yourself with brilliant personalities who are elevating humanity through business, the Conscious Capitalism conference is the place to be. We pulled three superstar entrepreneurs out of the crowd to talk business, hospitality, bathrooms, and bidets. Content warning: with Suzy Batiz, Brian Schultz, and Miki Agrawal on the mic, potty humor is inevitable!
It's now been two years since David picked "5 Winners in a Thinking World" here on the podcast. Those stocks were indeed winning after one year, but how have they fared to date against the stiff competition of a raging bull market? Then, continuing this month's theme of Conscious Capitalism, we bring you a conversation with the remarkable CEO of Middleby Corp., Selim Bassoul.
One of the earliest articulations of what we now call the "stakeholder theory" in business management comes from author and academic Ed Freeman. This delightful conversation from the floor of the Conscious Capitalism 2018 Conference in Dallas, TX will leave you loving business, hating chickens, and looking forward to the next generation of leaders.
Were you taught that the goal of business is simply to maximize shareholder value? Think again! Today David looks at the future of business with two of of the brightest luminaries in the Conscious Capitalism movement, Raj Sisodia and Alexander McCobin. Taped on location at the Conscious Capitalism 2018 convention in Dallas, TX.

At some point, the market will drop. It always does. Should you worry? Should you care? This month's mailbag will put you at ease. Plus, how raising cattle prepares you for investing (hint: think long-term). All that and more in the much-anticipated April mailbag!
We’re back to the stock-picking well in our ongoing “5 Stocks…” series. Today David dips not only into the Supernova Universe for inspiration, but into his own personal portfolio. Plus, do you remember April the Giraffe? Neither did we. But we do have a review of the 5 Stocks David picked last "APRIL" and there is something uncannily giraffish about their performance!

Somewhere in the deep and dusty vaults of Fool HQ, lies a treasure trove of audio gold.

Today, we revisit those old clips with fresh insight, as Mac joins David and Tom Gardner for a precarious walk down memory lane.

Does the company where you work, or in which you're thinking of investing, have a rich culture? A key component is often an "Employee First" mentality, one that celebrates and nurtures people and their humanity. David's semi-annual culture conversation features regular guests Kara Chambers & Lee Burbage joined this week by a chorus of new voices, explaining and answering: "What's Your Motley?"
Special guests once again feature on our monthly mailbag, as Aaron Bush returns for Crypto-Corner and two of our favorite Davids conspire to invent the Gardner-Kretzmann Continuum. Plus, some follow-up on Predictable Success, a plea to ignore share price, and a little advice on keeping up with your reading.

Are you a “Visionary” who sees the world from 10,000 feet, eyes on the future? Are you an “Operator” who loves to break down barriers and get stuff done? Maybe you’re a “Processor” who creates frameworks and craves efficiency. Or a “Synergist” able to set your ego aside and pull the team together. According to our guest, Les McKeown, each of these types are essential to building and scaling a successful business, but each is particularly suited to a different stage of a company’s lifecycle. Getting the right balance and working to move your business through its growth stages is key to building Predictable Success.
Come on down! You're the next contestant on The Market Cap Game Show! Can you claim the #IBeatMatt hashtag bragging rights? Join the fun as we endeavor not to under or over-estimate the size of 10 stocks from David's Supernova Universe.
Poverty, disease, violent crime, famine... nearly every measure of human suffering is going steadily down, as surely as overall prosperity is going up. That's not just optimism, that's what the data show. Today we're delighted to present our guest Steven Pinker, author of several books including his latest, Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress, which highlights an optimistic, if counterintuitive, look at the future.
Time once again to answer your emails and Tweets! Special guests abound, as Tim Hanson speaks on The Motley Fool 100 Index, Brian Richards broadens our horizons to the UK and Hong Kong, Jeff Fischer talks hedging, and Bryan Hinmon reads yet another disclaimer before digging deeper into the TMFC ETF.

You may know about asset allocation, but what about asset location? You may know about LTV, but what about CAC? And is infantry turnover really a thing? Tune in to learn the lingua franca of Foolish investing.
Also, last year at this time, David picked "5 Stocks The World Needs Right Now." How much did the world really need them? Did we beat the market again, or…?!
One episode was not enough to contain the wit and wisdom of our guest, Kevin Kelly. In this bonus episode, David asks Kevin about the future of tracking in a “protopian” society, and then we take questions from our Motley Fool One audience.
Have you ever wondered what the future looks like? You're in luck because today's guest pretty much lives there. As co-founder and now Senior Maverick of Wired Magazine, Kevin Kelly has a distinguished career of seeking out where the future is erupting and bringing the news back to the rest of us. David interviewed Kevin at our Motley Fool One Member Event in San Francisco last week. We know you will enjoy this peek behind the curtain!
What happened to the market? Was it the worst drop ever? Was it the beginning of the next bear market? Or was it just a harmless little bear cub? Regardless, David has 5 picks to beat the market over the next 3+ years. Also, two years ago Rule Breaker stocks were hurting, down over 20% in our own private bear market. Today we’ll review the 5 stocks David picked at that time. We hope you were listening!
