Everything you want to know about Stock Advisor Canada, a stock-picking service focusing on high-potential stocks from The Motley Fool.
We won’t keep you in suspense: Motley Fool Stock Advisor Canada is a North America-focused stock service designed to help investors find the best-of-the-best stocks in both Canada and the United States. Stock Advisor Canada is run by lead advisor Iain Butler, CFA, and a team of Motley Fool analysts hustling to present members with great stock picks.
Since 2013, the Motley Fool Stock Advisor Canada service, and the performance of the picks that Stock Advisor Canada’s Iain Butler and his team of experts have found has given investors roughly a 10 percentage point advantage over investing in the S&P/TSX Composite index. Below, we’ll show you how you can get access to the winning picks that this service has made — while paying far less than you may ever think possible.
What makes Stock Advisor Canada picks so special
Motley Fool Stock Advisor Canada has made it its mission to provide investors with a stream of stock recommendations each month that aim to help them build a robust portfolio in hopes of achieving market-beating returns.
There are two particularly important components to those market-beating stocks: Sustainable moats and disciplined management. The moat, or an advantage that the business has over its competitors, is crucial if a company is to maintain the financial wherewithal to pay an ever-increasing dividend decades into the future. Likewise, a disciplined management team allocates capital effectively to preserve and grow the dividend and the broader business without sacrificing the balance sheet.
The true value of Stock Advisor Canada picks
A look at the top picks from Motley Fool Stock Advisor Canada really brings home the value that the service provides. One of the service’s first U.S. recommendations was MercadoLibre (NASDAQ:MELI), Latin America’s version of eBay (NASDAQ:EBAY). The stock has climbed almost 185% in a little more than three years, and the potential for further growth still exists in Latin America.
From its home turf of Canada, e-commerce upstart Shopify (TSX:SHOP)(TSX:SHOP) has delivered for Stock Advisor Canada investors, climbing almost 280% in a year. While most investors were laser-focused on miners and the oil patch, Shopify has tapped into the surging opportunity that exists within the e-commerce industry.
Finally, the field of automating manufacturing facilities spawned the rise of Cognex (NASDAQ:CGNX), whose machine vision systems have helped transform the factories and distribution centres of some of the world’s largest companies. With returns of almost 210% since January 2016, Cognex has successfully navigated ups and downs in its industry. Cognex’s dramatic share-price gains have persisted, and efforts to expand the scope of its offerings uses could produce even better gains in the future.
What a Stock Advisor Canada subscription gets you
Motley Fool Stock Advisor Canada comes loaded with goodies for members.

Iain and team also release their picks for the “best” five stocks each month – these are Stock Advisor Canada recommendations which the team see as particularly good opportunities at that time.

Finally, perhaps the most underrated part of Stock Advisor Canada: A fantastic community of members who lend their expertise and support to each other in their quest to become better investors. The forums discussions are full of excellent commentary by a diverse set of experienced Stock Advisor Canada members who help mentor new folks and answer questions.
