As a long-time tech stock analyst at The Motley Fool, every day I wake up and get the chance to help everyday people like you identify and profit from some of the world’s most promising investment opportunities.
It’s hard to believe, but 2021 marked the 28-year anniversary of the founding of The Motley Fool by two legendary investors, David and Tom Gardner.
It’s truly amazing that Tom and David were able to go from publishing an investment newsletter for 300 or so subscribers out of the shed behind David’s house…
To serving millions of hardworking investors like you around the globe from offices in far-flung countries like Australia, Germany, the United Kingdom and Japan.
David and Tom have put together a heck of a run. And since I have the luxury of working with them, I know what they’re most proud of is their ability to consistently lead investors to some of the most life-changing investment returns the market has ever seen. I’m talking, of course, about companies like:
Amazon (up 19,835%)Netflix (up 21,002%)Nvidia (up 6,020%)Baidu (up 1,792%)Salesforce.com (up 2,756%)Those are actual investment recommendations we have shared with The Motley Fool community over the years – and the list goes on!
These incredible returns show the importance of buying and holding great companies – a core tenet here at The Motley Fool.
And that’s why I’m writing this today.
Because this track record, combined with a historically very profitable stock buy signal, could change the way you invest forever.
And that buy signal is flashing right now.
You see, twice every month, the analyst team at The Motley Fool researches a brand-new stock and recommends it to members.
And as you’ve already seen, these picks could lead to life-changing returns.
However, every so often, we come across a stock so good…that we just have to double down on it.
Many of us around the office have come to call this re-recommendation a “Home Run Buy” sign.
And one stock in particular is simply begging for another recommendation.
But this swing for the fences approach…this isn’t some shot in the dark.
Some last ditch bet at a poker table.
This investing trick is straight from the playbook of one of the greatest investors of all-time: Peter Lynch.
“Selling your winners and holding your losers is like cutting the flowers and watering the weeds,” – Peter Lynch
Here at The Motley Fool, we take that same approach – add to your winners. And this isn’t some everyday occurrence.
But the 97 times it has happened, the results have been spectacular:
Netflix is up 13,797% since this “Home Run Buy” signal flashed in June 2007Tesla, which received the “Home Run Buy” sign in November 2012, is up 13,358% since.In fact, across the 97 stocks with this total conviction … the average return is an astounding 520% … crushing the S&P 500 by nearly 4x!
Of course, we would never describe any stock as a “sure thing,” but the details behind this tiny little internet company are impressive:
It’s smaller than 1/100th the size of Google.Each one of our recommen
