- Can I trust the Motley Fool? 6 answers
I clicked on a link and was taken to a video, which troubled me a bit and is a bit different from what I expect of the Motley Fool, of which people have presented as offering advice like "Live below your means." The video, masterfully presented to be grabbing and engaging, offers a free lunch by revealing the revolutionary new secret sauce technology powering possibly the next Apple Watch and some of its competitors, and while it makes no direct claim (at least in the portion before I closed it down) about what your ROI will be for following this stock tip, it keeps telling how it is riding on the coattails of perceptive investment decisions that have returned a hundredfold.
I looked and did not notice any statements that this was a paid advertisement and did not represent Motley Fool.
Has Motley Fool jumped the shark, or is this something separate from what I understand to be a good source of financial advice? (Is this a classy pump-and-dump?)
