It's not that we're negative nellies around here. I mean, we're optimists, right? But still, every once in a while, even Fools need to air a few grievances. So get ready to shake your fist at the heavens – it's time for some pet peeves!
It’s time check on the progress of 5 Stocks Indistinguishable from Magic and 5 Stocks with a Tailwind Blow. But for 5 MM MMM Good Stocks it’s year three, so we’ll give it one last look and a final tally before sailing it off in honor and glory… to Foolhalla!
We delight in breaking rules. But laws – real laws – the ones that govern the universe and human behavior... well if we fight those, we'll likely lose. But if we know them well and abide by them, we just might find ourselves a little smarter, happier, and richer.
Sometimes we find inspiration from the incredibly insightful authors we interview. Sometimes it's from the stories of everyday Fools who have seen the light—and most importantly, taken action. Always we find inspiration from this, our monthly mailbag!
What is normal? What is taboo? How much have we learned in the last century? In Gods of the Upper Air, Charles King illuminates the anthropologists who broke the rules of 20th Century culture, and the science that refuted society's assumptions about race, gender, and sexuality.
"Stop the Busywork, and Start the Work that Matters" – the subtitle of Do More Great Work by Michael Bungay Stanier gets right to the point on how we can do more of what we love and be the best versions of ourselves.
You've heard Shirzad talk about the benefits of raising your PQ, or Positive Intelligence Quotient. Now it's time to hit the gym and build some mental muscle!
Is it possible to train your brain towards happiness and success? The science says yes! Shirzad Chamine's Positive Intelligence is your guide to weaken the saboteurs that haunt your mind and strengthen your inner sage.
Another great month in the books! On today's mailbag we hear a lot of love for Coach Reich, we get a little more airtime with our VC side-swami Ollen, and we round it off with some stories that remind us of what is truly important in life.
To be a Rule Breaker investor, you need to think like a venture capitalist. So... what's a venture capitalist? Glad you asked! The Fool's own Ollen Douglass is here to explain what it is, what it does, and how you can dip your toes in the VC pool.
You know that savvy investor we had on the show a few days ago? Turns out he also knows a thing or two about the game of football. Many thanks to Frank Reich for sticking around for an extra chat about his other passion.
You win some, you lose some. But if you turn those wins and losses into something bigger, something inspirational... well then you might just make the world smarter, happier, and richer. As an NFL quarterback and head coach, Frank Reich has won and lost under the brightest of lights, but his story rises well beyond the game of football. In fact, you might be surprised to hear just how much of a Fool he really is!
It's one year since David picked 5 Stocks For America, two years since he picked 5 Stocks That Pass The Snap Test, and three years since he picked 5 Stocks Celebrating the 2018 World Cup. Yep, it's time to check the score and see how the games-in-progress are going!
June has been a great month on the podcast. In fact it will be a hard month to top! But we can top it off, sure enough, with your top-notch questions, comments, and stories. From market caps to optionality, tune in and pay attention to the scuttlebutt.
Yankees vs. Red Sox... Barcelona vs. Real Madrid... Duke vs. North Carolina... The best rivalries are forged over time through heated competition. Today we give you Aaron Bush vs. Emily Flippen. Will the new format give Emily an edge? Will Aaron break the game again? Will you steal the crown from the comfort of your home? We won't know until we play... The Market Cap Game Show!
With a standing ovation and a few tears in our eyes, we watch the curtain fall on David's 30th and final 5-stock sampler. And as he takes his exit, is it...? Could it be? Is that a bear chasing these companies around? Well that might seem like tragedy today, but Fools know a comedy when we see one! Bravo!
Previous Great Quotes episodes have featured everyone from Shakespeare to Dr. Seuss. But today we're pulling from one of the best contemporary financial writers of our time. So contemporary that he's here with us as a guest on the show! It's best-selling author and forever-Fool, Morgan Housel.
Aaron Bush and Tim Beyers have taken very different paths to become Motley Fool analysts, but now they are the duo who will lead the Rule Breakers team into the future. Today we hear their stories, in their own words. Up and to the right, here we go!
"May you live in interesting times," is said to be an ancient curse. But is it really? Maybe it's just the result of leading a more interesting life. Well, May has been interesting, and the mailbag doesn't disappoint! We have perspectives from all ages, from around the world and even from the future!
High risk? Low risk? MEDIUM risk? What does that even mean, and what the heck is risk anyway? Today, we define risk Foolishly and revisit our risk ratings, a system to quantify the long-term risk your companies may face.
This show from the vaults, recorded in 2015, asserts that you can make good investments the same way you make good radio. And to prove the point, we look at GoPro, Zoe's Kitchen, and... wait, what? Ok, they can't all be winners. But add Intuitive Surgical and Tesla to the mix and, well, you would have been pretty happy with this as a 5+ Stock Sampler!
Imagine: you’ve just stopped doing something that you’ve been doing for a very long time. Something great. Something that in many ways has defined you. But now you’ve stopped. What do you do? What would you do? What would David do?
One thing we've learned over the last year is that a lot of work can be done remotely. Meetings can happen over Zoom. Spare rooms can be turned into offices. But now that the old physical workplaces are starting to reopen, what does work even look like? As an employee? As a business? HR superstars Lee and Kara are here to help us make the best of what's to come.
We love to hear from all our listeners, especially those who are underrepresented in the world of investing and finance. This month we were delighted to hear from more women than usual, and are eager to highlight their contributions.
Plus, we got our first (but hopefully not last) video submission which rounds out the show. See Owen's video mailbag submission on YouTube at: mot.ly/owen
