Fool.com: Investing, Stock Research, and Personal Finance
When they were young, brothers David and Tom Gardner learned about stocks and the business world from their father at the supermarket. Dad, a lawyer and economist, would tell them, "See that pudding? We own the company that makes it! Every time someone buys that pudding, it's good for our company. So go get some more!"
The lesson stuck. The brothers founded the world's premier multimedia financial education company, The Motley Fool. The company's mission has remained the same since its inception: to educate, enrich, and amuse individual investors around the world.
In 1994, a partnership with America Online allowed The Motley Fool to come to life online. Fool.com was launched on the World Wide Web soon thereafter. The brothers quickly established the "Fool Portfolio" of stocks, funded with their own money, and Fools around the world were invited to learn from the Gardners' investing successes and mistakes. The Fool Portfolio (renamed the "Rule Breaker Portfolio") was celebrated for its dramatic gains until its closure in March 2003.
