Reddit (r/securityanalysis) - good for general industry gossip and the “getting the most out of r/securityanalysis” thread has some good book recommendations and resources on it.
ADVFN (for UK stock discussion - quite a few people copy and paste broker updates on here when there are key company updates).
Seeking Alpha (a mixed bag, most of the content is garbage but occasionally you get someone commenting on posts who has a very detailed understanding of stocks, which helps with directing where your due diligence takes you).
Yeah but do these other forums keep you abreast of the latest and greatest alt-right conspiracy theories, the suckability of SRK’s abs, and the latest formulations of Oxypowder? The range of topics in this forum is impressive.
can you kindly break down what this contains and how to optimally use it? it looks interesting. Also seeking alpha gives your transcripts, earnings expectations, as well as random news about co with instant notifications which are all very imp. the personal investment thesis portion is what ranges from bad to good.
Why it’s good: mostly the user base. You have lots of money managers and large retail investors with a varied background. I’ve found some pretty knowledgeable guys on names I cover and useful analysis on both sides on other ideas.
How to use: I’d just sign up and pay the 5 dollars to get access to posting. Then just start reading the new posts. I tend to read the small cap stock threads, which don’t have as many pages.
Also, the value investing club is another forum that people talk highly about on the cobaf forum. It requires the submission of two ideas a year to keep your membership. Otherwise, there is a 45 delay between the ideas being posted and made available for view. Also there is another private forum that people on cobaf get invited on after they get noticed. Given that I’m limited in what I can post about publicly on stocks, I haven’t tried to get into those forums.
