Sad but mostly true. Hardly any Fool services are beating the market by enough to justify the transaction costs (which are never included). I'll be curious to see if any of the higher end services, like Alpha or Special Ops, do any better. But I don't think they have so far.

That must be part of the reason Fool has to keep rolling out new services--the old ones, on an annualized basis, are generally a shade ahead of the market or well behind.
