Here at The Motley Fool, one of our key goals is to guide people to become great investors — it’s so central to our mission that, until very recently, our motto read simply, “Helping the World Invest — Better.”
In this Rule Breaker Investing podcast, host David Gardner leads off by interviewing a special guest who may be evidence that we’re making progress. You see, in 2017, we began a one-year contest among a select core of our most-engaged members. We called it The League of Extraordinary Investors. The rules were fairly simple. Each month, these 163 players had to pick five stocks from among the 100-plus actively recommended companies in the Rule Breakers universe, and allocate 10 “chips” among them. [It’s actually quite similar to what the Rule Breakers team does themselves each month, when they select our monthly Best Buys.]
These investments would be tracked over the course of a year, and at the end, we’d have a winner whose portfolio had outperformed those of their Foolish rivals. That winner was Jean Marc Ayas, and he’ll talk with Gardner about a number of things, including stock picking, strategy, allocation, and one of the most important things The Fool has taught him about investing. Then, it’s time for the one-year review of David’s Five Great Stocks You’ve Never Heard Of sampler, for which he was picking from among the more obscure names in the Supernova universe. Did Ultimate Software (NASDAQ: ULTI), Orbital Atk, NuVasive (NASDAQ: NUVA), Littelfuse (NASDAQ: LFUS), and Blackbaud (NASDAQ: BLKB) together outperform the S&P 500 benchmark?
