Dear Motley Fool,

I do not blog often, as a matter of fact this is my first post. However, I have been thinking of this for a little bit and I think you should implement it.

In all of the articles you write about different companies, you have a disclosure policy at the bottom of it. It generally reads something like:

Fool contributor Morgan Housel doesn't own shares in any of the companies mentioned in this article. Google is a Motley Fool Rule Breakers pick. Microsoft is a Motley Fool Inside Value selection. The Fool has a disclosure policy.

And so you mention stocks that are picked by your various services because you are honest and forthcoming and like tranparency, unlike some presidential administrations.

So what I would like to see in CAPS is tracking of the companies that you disclose have been picked by Rule Breakers, Inside Value, Hidden Gems, and so forth. You could post the stock as a pick on the day that it is disclosed, and in the comments refer to the article that it was disclosed in. Any recommendation that you made to the particular community that subscribes to those services would not be compromised anymore than it is right now through your end of article disclosure policy. It would be interesting for the CAPS members to be able to look at this information consolidated in one place without having to look through all the posts and compile it themselves.

In addition it would be interesting for those who do subscribe to the services to see how they compare to the time they may have added it to their porfolio in relation to when it ends up in an article.
