The Motley Fool Stock Adviser is an online financial newsletter that charges a monthly subscription for individual stock picks. Tom and David Gardner created the Motley Fool Stock Adviser in 2002.
The Gardner brothers also founded the well-known online financial publication, The Motley Fool. The brothers developed the stock adviser as a paid option in contrast to the free service provided by the Fool. The paid newsletter promises to beat current market averages with each stock recommendation. The recommendations include small-cap stocks, growth stocks and value-driven companies. The stock adviser claims the recommendations beat the S&P 500 averages by 162 percent since 2002.
