At The Motley Fool, one of our core values is to "Top It!" We're always looking to go one better. Which is why we go out of our way to add dividends to our portfolio return calculations, conviction ratings to our stock picks, and an extra ball to the game of soccer. Guests Matt Argersinger, Yervand Khoranian, and Robert Brokamp make sense of all that and more on this week's midsummer mailbag.
Long-time producer Mac Greer joins David once again to discuss and feature our whole interview with tennis legend Billie Jean King.
Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner and long-time producer Mac Greer join David this week once again dig through our deep vault of audio gold, as they discuss Wimbledon, marijuana, and a Starbucks in every bathroom!
FANG: Facebook. Amazon. Netflix. Google. Or is it FAANG, with Apple too? Or… FAANMG?! Reacting to a Bloomberg Opinion piece, David addresses those who would turn some of his favorite companies into acronyms. What’s your FAAMNG Score?
Olé! Vamos! Golazo! It's World Cup season and today we're inspired by the international soccer tournament to pick some stocks to beat the market over the next 4 years (i.e. by the next World Cup). But first we'll check the score on The Brexit Inspired Stock List from two years ago, and do our best to avoid going to PKs.
Today we go through 20 fantastic lessons learned over 20 years of investing Foolishly. And that's just one of our mailbag items. We also bring in Foolish experts Dylan Lewis, Mark Brooks, and David Kretzmann to answer your questions. And finally... about that breaking glass at the show open -- will it stay or will it go?
When should you take a break? When should you have surgery? When should your kids go to school? Author Dan Pink joined David at FoolFest a few weeks ago to talk about the science of timing. And to give a rousing, improvised, and expertly delivered commencement speech.
World Cups only come around every 4 years. This year's tournament in Russia brings the world together in a whirl of competition and pageantry, creating stories full of tragedy and heroics. But most of all, it gives us these 6 investing lessons that we can talk about during the halftime break.
Also, we review 5 Stocks Riding The Bull Market —will the #rbistreak survive?
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. We sent Producer Mac Greer down to dig out some of the best clips from the old Motley Fool Radio Show archives, uncovering turn-of-the-century interviews with future business leaders and b-list celebrities. 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.
