Best investment newsletter resources

Throughout the writing of my book, Tradestreaming, I’ve been asked time and time again if there are any good resources (lists, really) of the top investment newsletters. Unfortunately, there aren’t any all-encompassing sites that investors can tap. This post is a start. Please comment or contact me if you have anything to add, as well.

Top investment newsletter resources

There a couple of firms that market multiple newsletters.  Sometimes, these are just publishing firms that produce different products.  Others, like Forbes, market 3rd part newsletters.

Diversified investment newsletter businesses

InvestorPlace: Philips Newsletters, a giant in the financial newsletter place, uses InvestorPlace as its flagship site to market its newsletters.

StockTwits: More blogs/trading systems than traditional investment newsletters, StockTwits’ store sells subscriptions to the blogs of many of StockTwits’ top investors and analysts.

Cabot: In the business for 40 years, Cabot publishes a variety of newsletters.

MoneyWeek: The UK’s best selling finance magazine also offers a variety of subscription investment letters.

Stansberry Research: Another 800lb gorilla in the financial newsletter space, Stansberry publishes almost 20 different subscription newsletters

Motley Fool: Of course, we couldn’t leave out The Fool — they’re got a stable of about 10 newsletters.

3rd part newsletter distributors

Forbes Newsletters: In addition to the Forbes.com site, the old business mag distributes both their own premium newsletters as well as leading newsletters like Al Frank’s Prudent Speculator and the Obeweis Report.

Financial newsletter directories

MarketWatch Newsletter Directory: Dow Jones’ MarketWatch has a database of many of the industry’s top financial newsletters.

Newsletter Access: This site claims a directory of over 9000 investment letters

Seeking Alpha’s Newsletter Authors: The financial content aggregator has a listing of all its authors categorized as newsletter authors

Investment Newsletter Benchmarking

Hulbert Financial Digest: Mark Hulbert has been following the performance of top newsletters for heaven-knows how many years.  He publishes a newsletter himself of his findings on which newsletters exhibit top performance — and which don’t.

Investimonials: Users submit their own rankings on many of the industry’s leading investment newsletters.

Crowdsourced Trading Strategies

Zignals: Not sure why more people don’t know about this Irish firm but they allow users to publish trading strategies and investors to subscribe to them.
