Investing has changed in the last 5 years. It has not changed in terms of process – fundamental analysis is still the same it was 5, 10, 15, 50 years ago. What has changed is the access to information. The Web has provided investors with a whole new world of information that can be used when making investment decisions. Over the years I have developed a healthy list of websites that can be used when researching stocks. But first, you need a solid dividend growth investing strategy. This is why I’ve written this book that will provide you with practical and easy-to-use strategies to build, manage and sell your portfolio. I also take into consideration the tax impacts and this is why I offer the book in two different editions:

 

US Edition

Canadian Edition

Here are 25 of those websites that I currently frequent to research stocks and look for ideas:

1. Dividend Stock Analysis

2. Morningstar

3. MSN Money

4. Yahoo! Finance

5. Motley Fool Discussion Boards

6. Dividend Achievers

7. Dividend Aristocrats

8. DRIP Investing

9. Dividend Growth

10. Financial Webring Forum

11. WikInvest

12. StockPickr

13. Big Charts

14. Marketwatch

15. Reuters

16. Zack’s Investment Research

17. Gummy Stuff – all sorts of cool analysis

18. RiskGrades

19. ValuePro

20. Yahoo! Industry Center

21. Seeking Alpha

22. GuruFocus

23. CNN Money

24. Kiplinger

25. The Street

This list does not include the personal finance and investing blogs that I frequent. Here’s the list of my “top 10″ investing blogs:

1. What is Dividend – A complete beginner’s guide for dividend investing

2. Intelligent Speculator – ETF and Dividend stock analysis

3. Canadian Dividend Stock

4. Canadian REITs

5. Dividend Growth Investor

6. Dividends Value

7. Passive Income Earner

8. Dividend Monk

Interesting list, although I would probably move Seeking Alpha from 21 to 5 and MSN Money to teens. Everyone of course has their preferences.

TheDividendGuy: do you subscribe to ValueLine? if yes, how do you like it? if no, what free content do you use from them? Thanks.

You need Value Line on the list. You need trade journals on the list. Where’s Hoover’s on the list? How come the SEC is not on the list, etc?

Get as close to the source of information on a company without the pundits opinions and form your own good judgements based upon right criteria for valuation.

You should checkout gstock.com which uses a supercomputer to find the best timing for stock trading.

October 27, 2007, 12:31 am

I see you have Value Line on the list…

How about international sites like International Organization of Securities Commissions (www.iosco.org) and The World Federation of Stock Exchanges (www.world-exchanges.org) to “get closer” to international markets, regulators, and companies?

I noticed most of your list is US centric. I like http://www.theindiastreet.com and http://www.moneycontrol.com for India Given the India market is on a huge Bull run, your readers should have a look at these sites.

Great list. As a UK investor also looking into investing into a few US companies I’ve been trying to find out which sites are the best for doing research and here it is, so many thanks.

November 29, 2007, 12:04 am

You forgot perhaps the most important stock investing site of all:

http://www.berkshirehathaway.com

Reading Warren Buffett’s Letters to Shareholders will give anyone a better education on stock investing than any of the sites listed above and will teach you more about business than any MBA program. Best of all, it’s FREE!!!

PS – http://www.PowerWealth.com ain’t too shabby either. :-)

I like some stock picking websites, but most of them are to full of “hype” . I recently found this site located at http://www.StockPreacher.com that doesn’t seem to to be full of “hype” actually it’s rather plain… maybe that’s what I like about it.

Anyways, check it out, see what you think…

Just discovered a complete list of all marked down products at Amazon, sorted by category
and % off, ranging from 50% off to 90% off (thanks Sonja for the effort).

Actually I never thought Amazon would have articles with 90% off, but only in the category
Electronics there are more than 3000 of them – look for yourself, the list is on
Bargain Hunter http://bargains-hunter.blogspot.com/2008/02/looking-for-marked-down-prices.html (which is a blog of a woman who specializes in finding good deals at
Amazon, like Britain’s “Jeanie”).

what do you think of AOL’s investment info? Since I’m a novice investor I really can’t say for sure, but it seems relatively complete, and has a nice look, especially the beta version.

I’d recommend that anyone wanting to learn about about the stock market, check out the following websites that are geared towards not only the “novice” investor, but also the experienced investor looking to keep up. But remember, ANY website you visit on the web is no substitute for a stock broker or money manager. Always speak to a registered investment advisor before making any sort of investment!

Here are the sites:

Timing trades has always been important, but at no time more important than now. Technical analysis can produce profits in a nervous market, taking advantage of the short term ups and downs. It’s also important to hedge long positions with shorts and control losses. No on e can pick winners all the time, but keeping losses small controls the downside risk.
Wishing you good fortune in your trades-

We all get bombarded every day with mails, morning briefs as to which stock we should pick and how will be the market trend today. Every time the brokerage houses will send the stock market tips as if we all are playing a gamble and need the tricks as to how we can win it. And anticipating as to how to do stop loss and at least will make smaller profits. What most of the investor do is they consider short term trading as the long term investment and believe as to how it can be doubled in a day. Buying a stock just because the price is low and some stock market tip you received that this will boom in the market today. What most of us do is that we all trade with money which we can’t afford to lose but the market always says that invest only that money which is in excess to you. All of these are the big mistakes which we commit every day in spite of being reminded every time that we should complete our home work for the next day.

Was wondering if you had a chance to look at http://www.kewdstockanalytics.com.

The Site lets users sort through stocks based on investment ratios – like Price-to-Book, for example, and other criteria (banking stocks currently at a 52-week low etc). It has 93k stocks listed in their sortable database -including mutual funds (this is a sortable database, not just searchable).

I have references for stocks, screeners, evals, etc.
My question: is there a site that exists that provides up to the second company information. I use ScottradeElite, and use the news notifier, it always seems to be a bit on the late side.
Faster news, could mean better quality trades.
Note: I will not pay $300 a month for such a service.
Thanks in advance guys.
