Motley Fool 100 ETF a substitute for Motley Fool subscription?
« on: September 06, 2020, 10:20:24 PM »
The Motley Fool 100 ETF was introduced on fool.com as:

"The Fool 100 is a new market-cap weighted index that measures the performance of The Motley Fool's 100 largest investment ideas."
https://www.fool.com/investing/2018/01/30/announcing-the-fool-100-a-new-way-to-follow-the-fo.aspx

Does that mean people can pay the 0.50% expense ratio and not need a subscription to the Motley Fool's $200+/year newsletters?

And in the interest of lower fees, it TMFC looks a lot like Vanguard Mega Cap Growth (MGK):

https://etfdb.com/etf/MGK/#holdings

Both ETFs hold 45% of the big 5 tech companies (Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Google, Facebook).  The Motley Fool's ETF does have slightly better performance in the past year or so - but it hasn't been around very long.  They charge a 0.50% expense ratio compared to Vanguard Mega Cap costing 0.07% per year.

Impressive how closely TMFC and MGK track each other.
