Is The Motley Fool a scam or a legit company?

The Motley Fool is a legit company created to help individual investors understand investing basics and provide them with investing ideas. They encourage investors who are willing to spend the time researching companies to be long term holders of a diverse portfolio. They very clearly identify that most of an investor's gains will be driven by a small number of the stocks in their portfolio and that a large number of your picks may lose to the market (some might be outright losers). The Fool teaches the process for identifying the publicly traded companies that might have a higher probability of beating the market over 3 to 5 years or more.

Legit company that scams for more money by promissing the next BIG opportunity, IF you pay more.

Basially a scam, since their recommendation do not really work. It's like if you randomly picking stocks, you would come up with about the same result.
