Our April Fool's Day Gift to You

Here at The Motley Fool, April 1 might just be our favorite day of the year. And virtually every year since our company launched in 1993 we've run a joke for April Fool's.

Our very first April Fool's joke was Zeigletics, a made-up penny stock to show the perils of pump-and-dump schemes.

A few years later, during the heart of the dot-com bubble, we unveiled eMeringue, "the Internet's #1 meringue delivery service."

Our past jokes were opportunities to showcase the importance of focusing on the long term, staying disciplined as investors, and avoiding getting caught up in short-term headlines.

This April 1st, however, we wanted to do something different. It's been a wild year for the stock market and we're still in the midst of the pandemic.

So instead of running a joke, we’re putting together a Foolish portfolio to help Fools like you navigate the market both today and for the next five years -- and we’re giving it away FREE to the entire Motley Fool community!

Within the past two months we've seen the stocks of many of our favorite businesses pull back from recent highs. We know many people are more nervous about investing today than they were even in the early days of the pandemic. And we believe one of the most important contributors to long-term investing success is to keep investing through turbulent times.
