Academic Research on Motley Fool

2021.04.20 10:18 RETAW57 Academic Research on Motley Fool

TLDR: We can all agree Motley Fool's advertising is shit, but Academic Research seems to suggest their track record holds up to scrutiny. They focus on smaller stocks and holding them, which can be replicated, though research is difficult for some smaller companies.
It seems to be a recurring discussion theme which /stocks visits, and everytime people who've never had anything to do with Motley Fool, and have never looked past their shitty clickbait ads always make claims like Motley Fool is as good as flushing your money down a sink. Or Motley Fool is a scam.
Now disclosure, I've never used their premium service, but I wanted to go beyond what potato123 on /stocks claims, and decided to do a cursory search on it.
Turns out there's a research paper comparing the Fool's performance to the S&P 500.
The main findings from it can be summarized as below:
Average Monthly Returns from 2002-2016:
Motley Fool Picks: 1.13%
Picks based on IBES recommendations: 1.21%
S&P 500: 0.48%
So while the fool doubled the S&P500, it was beaten by IBES recommendations (which most people should be able to access through their broker (atleast you can here in Australia)).
They tend to pick a lot more smaller market caps though, which is why the IBES recommended matched portfolio comes out similar, since holding larger companies has underperformed finding smallcaps and holding them long.
In summary, Motley Fool does seem to be good at identifying the ones outside the mainstream, but if you have the background/experience, you may be able to get similar outperformance when investing in smallcaps and holding. The hurdle ofcourse is finding these, and having the research into them.

2021.04.20 10:18 darkdill [COD] Would a WW2 German-centric campaign be acceptable if it were done tastefully?

I look back at the early CoD games and at COD:WW2 and can't help but be slightly disappointed that there are no campaigns where you play as the Germans. Now, to those of you who say "All Germans are Nazis", that's just being ignorant. Not all Germans were Nazis; some were just fighting to defend their homeland.
If you need an example of a good WW2 German-centric campaign in a game, Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts does the job right. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL32tYHO8EqiQg_eoEASS5mEJMHNu99sMZ
In it, the side you play is simply part of the German Army during Operation Market Garden, and they aren't being "evil Nazis", but professional soldiers that are just trying to keep the Allies from entering the Fatherland.
I feel like if Activision could put aside its need for explosions and kickassery, maybe they could come up with something good. But that's just me. What do you think? Could they do it, or would it be more controversial than "No Russian"?

2021.04.20 10:18 Kershel36 "Everything else" toggle in Gmail desktop

I use Gmail on desktop, with the "Unread First" Inbox type, at the top I see unread messages and at bottom I get "Everything Else". I used to be able to click on both "Unread" and "Everything Else" and I would get a list of all my messages. Since a few hours ago, it's become a toggle, that just shows and hides my messages in both categories. I hope it's clear - is there a way to fix this?

2021.04.20 10:18 TheGr1mSleep3r I’m at my wits end.

I’ve suffered with this for 7 years now and I just don’t think I can do it anymore. I’m tired of the nightmares, the anxiety, the paranoia. I want to be free and normal. I don’t want to be shut in my house because I have panic attacks and DPDR when I go outside or travel in a car. I can’t do it anymore.

I had 16 life 2 x bishop of wings and righteous valkyrie on the board. I played Angel of destiny and ended up with 30hp. I don't see how I gained 14 life in that turn..

2021.04.20 10:18 1schlick I reached 45k, then my snake couldn’t turn.

Any explanation for why this happens? My snake’s eyes point to the mouse but he doesn’t turn. It made me die and lose my score.
If this is an intentional mechanic to prevent players from getting too many points, then I guess I’ve beaten the game. There’s not really any point in playing the game anymore if I’ve reached the maximum score.
Also it’s lame that your length caps out at 40k. In my opinion it should keep on going to infinity.
