Does the Motley Fool suck?

I use yahoo finance to keep track of price targets on certain stocks and there always is some worthless article from the above publication.  Anyone else find a lack of valuable content regarding the above?

They seem to be hypocrites. One day they can be bullish or bearish depending on how the stock does that day. It is ironic, they call themselves long term investors. They publish these pieces regularly to generate buzz for their services. At the end of their articles; there is a small paragraph offering their services.

Yes , big time

Mostly use their articles to pump the stocks they own while knocking down others in the same sector

PDS is a prime example, 2 negatively biased articles using margins and acct. rec as examples w/o looking at whole picture

and then in small letters at bottom "OH YEH , BY THE WAY,  I OWN TRANSOCEAN"

Generic bs

15 years ago they were great.   Been horrible for years though.  All Spam.  I filtered them out of "my yahoo".  You can do that.

 

 

 

I still remember when they had their rule breaker and rule maker portfolios on their website for everyone to see. I follow the fool on twitter. They will have some good articles from time to time, but their spam emails are shit

 

I like Jeff Hwang's articles the most, but it's because I have his poker book and he writes about the casino stocks.
