Explorer Added While Special Ops and Deep Value Drop Off

This month, I’ve added the Explorer 1 and Explorer 2 services to my monthly updates. Look for a full review of the Explorer 1 service in the very near future and an Explorer 2 update to follow.

Furthermore it’s been a full year since the Motley Fool shuttered both their Special Ops and Deep Value services, and so they’ve rolled off the chart entirely. In the interest of fighting survivorship bias, I’ll include a link to them in the performance reports each month.

    Thanks for the info…always useful(!) and interesting.

    Any thoughts of expanding to include their foreign services? I subscribe to Austrailia Extreme Opps and may sign up for Singapore.

    Wondering what your thought is on this new wave of Motley Fool products, where they pitch the service and you have a few hours (by midnight) to get the best deal. While intriguing, $4,000 was too steep to join the small, micro-cap service. Understand why they are taking this approach with their new services, but wondering if you think they are worth the $$.

      Yes it’s a good question. I do see a change in their business model happening too. I do plan on writing some more on what I’m observing but the short answer is I think it’s too early to tell. They are interesting but they seem to be charging premium prices for less coverage, less support than what even their cheapest Stock Advisor service provides.
