Help, help, help !!!

Where in the world do I find any new guidance on COH????

I can't understand why I've heard nothing since the original LEAP recommendation. Went everywhere on the site I can think of. Am I not understanding how to navigate all of these boards? Help.

Regards,
Vern

Hi Vern,

If you read a recommendation for buying a LEAP call on Coach, you are (or at least were) a MF Options subscriber. That newsletter service has its own discussion boards (as do each of our premium newsletters) and you can access that specific board here: http://boards.fool.com/1321/optionss-coh-coh-120735.aspx?mid...

Cheers

Alex,

Help me out please..

I may need a readjustment in thinking.. I thought that by combining my subscriptions, and "enhancing" them, into MTF ONE, would provide continuity into all of the services and their thoughts and (advice).
I'm sorry, but it seems that there is no cohesion between the groups. A lot of "throw the question over the fence" ("You need to go to this website"). I realize that each service has different goals and objectives, but there is an incredible opportunity for synergy. E.g. a small company with great growth potential should be an option target. A blue chip with steady growth should also be an option target. A newcomer with innovation should be a new equity acquire.. And on and on..
I love your analytics, But I have to correlate them myself. Seems you guys are competing with each other.

I have a hard time finding my posts and answers.. TOO fragmented between the services.. Or I'm just not understanding how to find all my posts/replies regardless of which subscription/service I posted them on.

OK. I'm just a user Techies have a different idea. Hope this helps to make it better.

I agree that it can be a vast, siloed website, but there are ways you can make it better as a user. Here are a few things I do:

Near the top of this page, you'll find the title of the message board you're on ("Coach"), and a red heart next to it. Click the red heart. Now this board is one of your "Favorites". When you do find the subscriber-only message boards for your services, click those red hearts so you can find them again easily the next time.

Bookmark http://my.fool.com and use that as your entry point into the Motley Fool. You'll see a box on the right side of that page that lists all of your "Favorite" boards that have new messages to read.

You can also bookmark this page: http://boards.fool.com/YourPosts.asp That page lists all of your recent posts that have received replies.

You will also see on the right side of the My Fool homepage that there's a box called "My Links". You can add bookmarks to places around the Motley Fool there by clicking the "Edit" button. I can't remember, but that link to find your replies might be one of the default links in that box.

Mike's suggestions are good ones, I use them all myself as I navigate the site. I regularly pursue every TMF board that has to do with a company i follow, and using those red "favorite board" hearts to add them to my list on my.fool.com is the easiest way I know to aggregate the stuff that interests me.

One other way of personalizing the service is to start utilizing My Scorecard. any ticker you add there will set you up to view all TMF message boards in a running news stream underneath your scorecard on this page: http://newsletters.fool.com/1255/myscorecard/index.aspx


MFOne gives great access, and aggregation of advice in some ways (like the monthly Top Recs where the ONE crew looks at the whole newsletter universe and provides rankings based on their own analysis: http://newsletters.fool.com/1255/exclusives/2014/01/10/top-r...). Most of the newsletter advisors will frequent the MFOne boards (or will come over when prompted by a ONE analyst seeing your question and shooting a note over to the relevant advisor) and answer any questions that are asked over there, so if you're feeling overwhelmed by the selection it may be best to establish the MFOne site and msg boards as your "home base" (http://newsletters.fool.com/1255/community/?source=iuntnvpnv...) and just let all of us come to you. That'll get you one-stop shop access to all the TMF crew, though you'll then be missing out on the community that's developed within each newsletter.

I realize that each service has different goals and objectives, but there is an incredible opportunity for synergy. E.g. a small company with great growth potential should be an option target. A blue chip with steady growth should also be an option target. A newcomer with innovation should be a new equity acquire.. And on and on..

Yeah, each service will remain siloed given the different advisors and philosophies utilized (and the unique community present within each). but what you describe re: synergy takes place regularly at FoolHQ, as analysts develop their own ideas or start following current picks, pitch them to other analysts and to the various advisors, and the MDP/Options/Supernova crews in particular looks over the other services and develops their own opinions on whether to piggy-back on the recs and establish derivative positions. As for member conversations of a similar nature, I think a little of that takes place in various places (again, not clean, you gotta find your way around, or just ask…); amongst SA members, for instance, there's a pretty vibrant Options board - http://boards.fool.com/1081/sa-options-118350.aspx?mid=31071...


cheers,

Good discussion... Maybe you can help me solve one irritating problem related to navigating thru these sites for me.

Here is the issue: I subscribe to all newsletters-- and I can access myScorecard from any newsletter. However, say, if I a GG site MyScorecard and click on a stock that is an MDP recommendation, I don't straight go to MDP discussion Board! it takes me to a generic discussion board.

Any workaround available for this irritation?
