Recommended Reading to Learn About Stock Investing
Despite all the research and technical analysis you might do, it pays to read up
on sources that can give you new ideas.
We recommend the following sources to help your investing prowess:
Smart Money Magazine - Printed by the Wall Street Journal, this
magazine has lots of investment ideas, as well as other ways to manage your
finances. You can buy this magazine with your frequent flier miles or find
an online deal for around $10 a year.
Money Magazine - A great source to get investing ideas, as well
as ways to manage finances. The cost is very minimal for this magazine.
Barrons - This subscription is delivered every Saturday and
lists all kinds of statistics on the weekly market and upcoming releases.
It also has several opinion articles that make market calls and predictions.
A subscription to this is very expensive, but you can usually use frequent flier
miles to buy it.
Yahoo Finance - A very comprehensive financial site that allows
you to build portfolios of watchlists and allows you to access all press
releases, SEC filings, articles and blogs, message boards, analyst information
and you can even purchase research reports there. By far the best message boards
Google Finance - A good portal, not as good as Yahoo for
overall information, but it does offer some articles that Yahoo doesn't.
Also, google updates real time stock quotes faster and more accurately than
CNBC - Watch CNBC in your spare time. You can learn the
language and see how "professionals" analyze the market and stocks. By the
way, don't ever trade on what Jim Cramer says. He is entertaining but
changes his mind daily.
