Hello,

I am new to the fool and am just starting to enter my existing portfolio. As i am populating "My Favorites I see one column "Popularity Rank". Is there somewhere that i can see a listing of stocks 1-XX that make up the popularity rank.

Thank you for any help,

Mickey

I do not know what the definition of "Popularity Rank" is, but if I guess correctly, you should be more concerned with what it means before you concern yourself with what stocks rate high or (if you are a contrarian) low.

Long ago, one investment strategy consisted in betting against what those trading in odd-lots did, since they were usually ignorant investors.

I have the same question. I'd like to see the whole list- and to know what it is based on.

I can tell you that currently on my list of favorites, that when I sort by "popularity rank" I get the following:

Amazon, #2
Stitch Fix, #3
The Trade Desk, #4
Apple, #5
Appian, #6
NVIDIA, #9
Paypal, #10
Disney, #11

etc, etc
(other notables include Netflix #13, Tesla #19 and Berkshire #68).

I hope someone can help answer our question. I would like to know what the heck stock is number 1, and numbers 7 and 8!

This is as much of the top 10 of "Popularity Rank" as I can currently elucidate. I have NO plans to add the entire stock market to my "favorites" list just for the purpose of figuring this out.

It is popularity based on members putting companies on their favorites list. And, while there is some correlation with regards to number of services that a company is recommended, there have been companies relatively high up on the list that weren't recommended anywhere.

If you want to know which companies the Motley Fool analysts have the highest conviction in, you will want to look at the stock screener results.

Just to satisfy your curiosity and nothing else, the No. 1 in popularity here is Shopify.

Same question to all - how do we get a full list of “Popularity Rank” found in our favorites in Stock Advisor. It would help, at least, if this can be added to the screener (conviction is not what we’re looking for). Popularity Rank should be available in TMF database - so a TMF programmer should be able to enhance the screener to pull that db column on demand.

Would be a nice little enhancement.

Thanks in advance to all.

I've got most of the top 50, still need help with #24, #33, #45, & #49.

1 Shopify 2 The Trade Desk 3 Amaxon 4 Zynga 5 Zoom 6 Appian 7 Apple 8 Stitch Fix 9 NVIDIA 10 Twilio 11 Walt Disney 12 Mastercard 13 Netflix 14 PayPal 15 Facebook 16 Arista 17 Okta 18 Tesla 19 Activision Blizzard 20 Slack 21 Square 22 Charlotte's Web 23 Alphabet (C Shares) 24 25 ZScaler 26 Invitae 27 Wix 28 Match Group 29 Idexx Laboratories 30 Illumina 31 Ollie's Bargain Outlet 32 Starbucks 33 34 Teladoc 35 Roku 36 Masimo 37 Microsoft 38 Globus Medical 39 Crowdstrike 40 Tencent 41 Docusign 42 JD.com 43 Hubspot 44 ServiceNow 45 46 Fastly 47 Intuit 48 Salesforce 49 50 Markel

Figured that out with just Stock Advisor & Rule Breakers subscriptions. They have a stock screener that has all of the names (and probably the remaining top 50 & top 100), but not in the same order as the Favorites. I tried a few dozen guesses besides the stocks I already follow, but I'm giving up now with 4 of the stocks on this list remaining, lol

I've owned most of these names at some point when I had around 100 stocks, but I'm down to about 1/3 of these now that I own about 50 stocks.

The biggest surprises to me are Zynga & Ollie's Bargain Outlet, and I was definitely surprised seeing MongoDB left off, it's one of my biggest holdings after Shopify.

MongoDB is currently #53. More surprised that Mercadolibre (MELI) is only #56? Wouldn’t put too much emphasis on what others are doing. Te rankings aren’t weighted to dollars invested but a simple popularity ranking. I could own 2,000 of SHOP but only 1 of TTD but both count as the same weighting on my ownership list. Each investor has do think about the Fool’s investment thesis for each recommendation and purchase or not accordingly. Most are good recommendations but they can’t possibly bat 100 - Charlotte’s Web being a recent example.

Hi there, how do you get such report? That's exactly what I'm looking for but cannot find the proper report from the Fool website. I looked everywhere, and the only way I found was 1/ "Guess" / look up a stock ticker or pick from a list 2/ check out their popularity rank, but it's all manual.

For a paid advisory services firm, and for being in 2020, the Fool website UI and associated reports are really clumsy by the way.

Thanks for the help. Cheers.
