Anyone know any good websites to research stocks? I'm just a looker right now, but will be getting into the market pretty soon.
There is so much information out there it just becomes noise. If you don't have any inside information or a stock guru relative/friend I would just stick to mutual funds. Last year was a great year for investing. Some of the mutual funds I sell did upwards of 50%.
I have some stocks but only because my grandpa is a oil baron. They are up down up down but they are mostly up.
If you are looking to make some quick money pick some penny stocks and hope for the best. They are like buying a lottery ticket.
Slow N Steady wins the race.
<---- thats all I have because of penny stocks!
stockhouse.com or .ca
I use RBC action direct to buy and sell all my stocks. its easy. There is a long thread all about this stuff.
stockhouse is full of people trying to pump up the stocks, do not rely on what is said there. Analyses there also suck ass and never come true. You are better not following them.Originally Posted by elevation
ps. Phill, you suck!
The research tool through yahoo finance is pretty good for US stocks. Haven't found anything quite as good for Canadian stocks yet.
Watch out if you sign up through an online broker. Often they'll neglect to tell you about their minimum trades per month rule which can wind up costing you a ton of dough.
just be careful about the money you make on your stocks. the gubment wants their piece of the action.
you do not want first hand knowledge of how they take it if you screw up.
if you get stock options thru work, cash them, no matter how little you make on them.
