    STOCKS

    I wanted to know what sources people use for looking up stocks...internet, magazines, etc. I'm trying to do some research and I'm not finding a solid go to source for stocks.

    Does anyone see any steals out there for stocks at this moment? I should have gotten in on CAT and John Deere both where in the low 20's two months back. I would have doubled my money by now.

    Thanks for any advice.

    Re: STOCKS

    there are a lot of good services. But, if you want a really good way to find out where stocks are going. You should read Phil Town's book, Rule #1. It lays out some really good indicators of how to check stocks value and website to do this work.

    I've found that it's always easy to find good stocks to buy, it's when to sell them that's the tricky part.

    Re: STOCKS

    Scottrade is where I go for Web advice. As far as periodicals, the Wal Street Journal, Forbes, Money magazine are all places I check once in a while.

    Hindsight is always 20/20.

    I'm more a mutual fund guy. If you're going to play the individual stock game, you probably better talk to some one who follows it full time(Full time Stock Broker).

    I disagree...Ford is a stock to look out for. They didn't except bail out money and I think people like that about them.

    Re: STOCKS

    Yahoo Finance is actually a fairly reliable source. You can get a lot of detail on individual stocks that are not free on other sites. I have found historical prices, company profiles, competitor information and other information very useful on the site.

    There is a big difference between people liking them and Ford actually making money. You may double your money with them but you're just as likely to lose 1/2 your money as well. Just because Ford is the best of the big 3 losers doesn't mean that it's a good company.

    Re: STOCKS

    I use a few different sources, not limited to the following....

    Biomedreports
    DailyFinance
    SmartMoney
    TheStreet
    Morningstar
    FDA Calendar
    Scottrade
    Google Finance
    Yahoo Finance
    MSN Money
    Sogotrade
    etc, etc


    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.
