I can't respond for David or the Fool's potential plans or offerings, but I personally see conflicts if the company were to share the Stock Advisor picks six months after the fact.

The largest conflict: At least some of the opinions on the picks will have changed by then.

Additionally, the picks are explained in the newsletter (which is what really makes it a service), while just offering the picks essentially bare on the site lacks context (and thus real value).

I believe that from free online Tom and David articles (, and by knowing Tom and David in the past (or reading archived articles), you can glean substantial information on the types of stocks they choose.

From online content, you know that David has suggested Marvel in the newsletters, and Amazon, Martha Stewart and other brand names; and Tom has suggested Whole Foods, Costco and Moody's (maybe you didn't know about Moody's), among several others with names I didn't know until then.

Anyway, those are my initial thoughts on the idea, but the company is always open to suggestions.

Fool on,
