David Gardner is a bundle of joy and enthusiasm.  The co-founder of the incredibly successful financial show, The Motley Fool, dropped into the studios of What Matters Most to share his philosophy not only on investing, but holistic living.  He is also a great lover of games and conscious capitalism.  Tune in and get a whole lot wiser across the spectrum.

He was a writer for Louis Rukeyser’s Wall Street newsletter before joining the Motley Fool. David is the lead advisor on The Motley Fool Rule Breakers advisory service, and co-lead with his brother Tom on The Motley Fool Stock Advisor, the company’s flagship subscription offering. His investment philosophy favors passive long-term holding of dynamic growth stocks, and has a long list of winners, including early selections of America Online and Amazon.com, as well as recent multiples earned on Netflix, Marvel and Intuitive Surgical.

He is also the inventor of Motley Fool CAPS, a site that features the community intelligence of 75,000+ ranked stock pickers drawn mainly from The Motley Fool Community.  The Motley Fool have recently launched an online newsletter called “Supernova” which chooses from David Gardner’s 150 or so stock picks and puts them into two portfolios: “Odyssey” for aggressive investors and “Phoenix” for people closer to retirement.
