The stock market can be huge, confusing, and for many people, understandably intimidating. Whether you’re an investing newbie or you’re already initiated into the stock market and want to get the most out of your portfolio, a little help is always welcome. The good news is that investors don’t have to have a huge account or pay top dollar for a personal broker. Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor is a low-cost subscription service that delivers expert stock research and recommendations right to your inbox every month. There’s also a limited-time offer for new subscribers who sign up now. Here’s everything you need to know.

The U.S. stock market is enormous (to say nothing of overseas markets), with billions of dollars flowing through exchanges every day. And with thousands of stocks on the New York Stock Exchange alone, it’s no easy task to pick winners — especially ones you’re willing to hold through volatile markets, like the one we’re in right now. The best investment apps and online platforms have made it easier than ever for the average Joe to dip his feet into the wide world of investing, but choosing the right brokerage is the easy part.

It’s also easy to get lost doing online research, with so many websites, forums, and subscription services eager to eat up your time and money. That’s why Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor service is a great way to streamline your investing. It’s a comprehensive online resource for market research and expert stock recommendations, and it covers a wide array of market sectors to find you the best opportunities no matter where they may be.

After signing up, you’ll receive a new Stock Advisor newsletter every month. Every newsletter includes two expert stock recommendations, each one accompanied by a detailed article that lays out the reasons for these picks and the case for their upside potential. Aside from the flagship newsletter, you’ll also get access to monthly updates featuring ten stocks that the Motley Fool team has selected as “Best Buys Now.”

To help new investors, Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor publishes an annual basket of “Start Stocks” that are ideal for those who are fresh to the market and looking for a place to park some starter capital. On top of all that, Stock Advisor includes frequent ongoing supplemental articles. These include news relating to major companies, bonus market reports, and sell recommendations. You get access to a catalog of educational materials that can help you grow your understanding of the market, as well as the full backlog of expert stock recommendations since Stock Advisor’s founding in 2002.

The Stock Advisor tool is built around the Motley Fool Investing Philosophy. The basic plan is to buy stocks for 25 or more good companies, hold for five years or longer, add new capital regularly, hold through volatile market conditions (which means no paper-handing), let winners run, and maintain a low time preference with a primary focus on long-term returns. But how does it perform? Since its establishment two decades ago, Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor recommendations have outperformed the Standard & Poor’s 500 market index by a considerable margin, delivering a 446% return, as of 3/8/2022, in contrast to the 126% return of the S&P 500.

So whether you’re looking to start investing, grow your existing portfolio, or better plan for retirement, Motley Fool’s Stock Advisor is a great tool for novice and experienced investors alike. Better still, through the end of April, the Motley Fool is offering a 55% discount for new members on a Stock Advisor subscription. The service would normally set you back $199 for a year, but if you sign up before April 30, new members can get an annual subscription for just $89 — that averages to just $1.71 per week. You also get a 30-day membership-fee-back guarantee if the Stock Advisor isn’t a good fit for you.

MSI Claw A1M is one hell of a gaming PC with best-in-class power, cooling, more
MSI Claw A1M being used to play racing game

Handheld or portable gaming is seeing a huge boon in innovation thanks to ultra-portable PCs from various manufacturers. I won't bother naming them all here, but the market has grown quite competitive. That's why MSI and Intel have teamed up to produce and optimize the MSI Claw A1M. The Claw is effectively a portable PC powered by an Intel Core Ultra processor, Intel Arc graphics, and Windows 11 Home. But what's more exciting is that it's equipped with many premium upgrades to improve gaming experiences vastly. For example, the ergonomically tailored hand grips feel more comfortable, especially during long sessions, and the 53-watt-hour battery supports longer playing times. High-performance Hall Effect joysticks offer unmatched precision and control with MSI Mystic Light for customizable RGB. Meanwhile, the intelligently designed cooling system called Cooler Boost HyperFlow optimizes airflow to keep it running at full speed without affecting performance.

If that were everything, I'd be happy with it, but there's so much more. The 120Hz 7-inch display supports VRR or variable refresh rate to keep onscreen action smooth and responsive. Two 2-watt high-resolution speakers provide immersive, crystal-clear audio. It's WiFi 7-ready, with a Thunderbolt 4 port for high-speed charging, and like alternatives on the market, it can be docked and used like a traditional desktop PC. Above all, MSI, Intel, and Microsoft are committed to providing best-in-class support through regular updates while collecting end-user feedback, with quick reactions when necessary. This means that the Claw A1M is a labor of love, and they're genuinely looking to work with the community to optimize the experience.

Costco Memorial Day deal: Get a year’s membership for $40
The front facade of a Costco store.

If you like the convenience and wholesale prices of Costco, you have to remember that there's something extra you'll need: A membership card. Unfortunately, it isn't quite as simple as signing up for your local library, either, as you have to pay to play. Right now, however, you can get these memberships highly discounted on a weird technicality — a digital shop card. At the end of the day, you can get a Gold Star membership for just $40, $20 down from the $60 it usually costs, or an Executive Gold Star membership for just $80, $40 down from the $120 it usually costs. Tap the button below to see if you can figure it out yourself, or keep reading for our explanation of the sale.

Why you should buy the Costco membership deal
If you're aware of Costco, then you'll know that you really need a membership to do most things with the company. That makes this very unlike, for example, the Best Buy Memorial Day sale where a membership to Best Buy Plus might save you some extras. With Costco, the membership card is very important. And this deal is a great way to get one for a technical discount. If you quality to get the card on this deal — you live in the USA or Puerto Rico and haven't been a Costco member in the past 18 months — you'll also get a digital Costco Shop Card, a sort of gift card. Since you're already planning on shopping at Costco at this point, anyhow, this is a technical discount. Now, all that remains is to pick your tier: Gold Star or Executive Gold Star.

8 reasons the Tineco Floor One Stretch S6 should be your next vacuum
Tineco FLOOR ONE Stretch S6 180° Lay-Flat Design

Tineco is back with an innovative vacuum that offers many excellent features in the Floor One Stretch S6, with the main goal of providing ultimate convenience while you clean. For example, its 180-degree lay-flat design allows you to easily get into hard-to-reach places, such as under furniture, where you wouldn't normally be able to. That's because the vacuum compresses, unlike comparable models, which might be bulky or rigid. The 5.1-inch compact design also improves the nook-access offering a low-profile to begin with. But while these features are certainly helpful, they're not the only reason why you might want to get yourself a Floor One Stretch S6. I'd argue there are many more reasons, and I've laid them out simply for you below.

1. It cleans wet and dry messes
