    Do you work for the Motley Fool or is this an independent recap of the Motley Fool performance? Can I get an independent prospectus on the various Fool portfolios?

      John, I do not work for Motley Fool. Read more about me here ( I don’t have prospectuses per se, but I have written in depth reviews on each of the services.

    Here’s what I find confusing…MF has started a bunch of SMA portfolio services based on these recommendations. Their results since 2014 when they started have been universally terrible for every one of their strategies. That’s kind of shocking given that 2015 was an incredible year for growth stock. This makes me wonder whether these numbers in any way resemble what one would get in a ‘real world’ portfolio.

      2015 was actually a down year for growth stocks in general (using the Russell 3000 and Russell 3000 Growth indexes as my point of reference) and I can’t speak to the performance of the SMAs. But I do know that the SMAs are not based solely on the underlying MF service anymore, and so they are NOT an exact proxy for the service.

    What percentage of the stock adviser out-performance is due to a few lucky picks (Tesla, Netflix, Apple)? What’s rolling performance over say the last 5 or 10 years, rather than all time?
