How Investing Newsletters Can Make You A Better Investor

by Hank Coleman

Investing newsletters can help you find stocks to invest in.The stock market itself is hot right now, and I think that it is definitely going to be a continuing trend higher this year. With all of the investment options to consider, wouldn’t it be nice to have some very helpful information to base your decisions upon? That’s why I’ve turned to investing newsletters to help me pick stocks. I mentioned one of my favorites, Jason Bond Picks, when I talked last week about short term swing trading that I have been doing for the past six months.

Online Investing Newsletters Are A Great Resource

Sure you can go find information about which stocks to buy and sell by yourself, and you will still need to do a little bit of your own research. You don’t want to just take anyone’s word for it. But, investment newsletters are offered by some of the top financial advisers, stock pickers, and investing companies. They can be extremely beneficial when examining the market.

Which investing newsletters that you subscribe to also has much to do with the type of investments you are interested in making. For example, I have been investing in small cap stocks based on Jason Bond Picks newsletter like I mentioned last week. It is a great service where he alerts you to what he’s trading, sends emails and texts, and also runs a killer website with a chat feature.

If you’re looking for general financial advice on investments, then again the top financial firms and reputable people within the industry have some great advice to offer like the crew at the Motley Fool and Jim Cramer’s Action Alert PLUSJim Cramer.

Another thing that you can choose depending on the investing newsletter is how often are the newsletters sent out. While you may want to receive newsletters often to keep up, you might not want one every day in your email inbox.

There are several investing newsletters that send out their newsletters once a week. You want to read different newsletters from different viewpoints in order to get all perspectives on the market, and one of the best resources are those who vary in the timing of their newsletters. Consider a daily newsletter or two supplemented by a weekly and/or monthly ones.

Physical Copies Of Investing Newsletters

The chances are that you have seen or read a newsletter at one time or another in your life. Newsletters can be used for a variety of reasons, all with the main goal of informing the reader of everything contained within. Many businesses, clubs, and schools will put out regular newsletters to help inform the masses about any happenings or relevant stories. Even Money Q&A has its own free weekly newsletter that we email readers. You can benefit greatly from properly planned out and distributed investment newsletters.

Quality investment newsletters are published to help give its subscribers insights on the stock market as well as current trends that investors will be interested in. Many financial planning and investment firms will put out these investing newsletters as a way to put together an informative piece that is filled with stock recommendations, stock market moves, forecasts, news pertaining to the various markets, commentaries by trading professionals, and analysis of stocks or the market as a whole.

Many investing newsletters often start off each installment with a company profile detailing your business along with your current stock performance charts. They also often contain other current information such as news articles from the investment world and tips that help investors to navigate through the trading system. Many times, there is even a helpful section where they can ask questions to have them answered by a trading profession. Such advice pieces are often the first thing that clients will turn to when they are reading through investment newsletters.

Today, many investment companies, stock brokerages, and famous individual investors like Jim Cramer and Jason Bond put out their investment newsletters online, either through a subscriber’s email or on their company website. The option is usually always there for a client to be able to print or save off their copies of the investment newsletters so they can refer to them in the future should the need arise. All in all, such email investing newsletters can be a valuable tool readers who want trading information and recommendations in a quick and effective manner.

Additional Benefits Of Investing Newsletters

While analysts often reach a consensus on stocks and mutual funds or an average opinion, each one of them thinks differently. It’s nice to get all the different perspectives about the investments that are out there. This helps you become a more knowledgeable person.

Also, one of the many benefits of investment newsletters is that they help bring to light many things you just aren’t going to find by doing your own research. No one investment newsletter is the same, and that is because no one person or firm can focus on all aspects of the market at once. There are going to be many things that you might miss out on if you do all your research on your own, no matter how much time you spend.

Therefore, allow other entities to bring information to the table. This way, you can be sure that you have a broad range of options and can better manage your portfolio. You might be your own investment adviser, but that doesn’t mean you don’t need any help from different people. The more you know about the market, the better off you are.

Be careful what investment newsletters you sign up for and be cautious not to just agree with everything you read. There are all types of investing newsletters out there both in print and online form. It is just like with any other business niche, and there are one or two bad apples spread throughout the bunch. But, overall investing newsletters are a great resource for investors to not only help you find individual stocks to invest in but also to help you become a better fundamental and technical trader.

I get a couple of investor newsletters. I like the different points of view that they all give you on everything from market direction to individual stock advice. Some of it I take with a grain of salt, but other is very worthwhile information

Even though it may seem like a basic concept, of course newletters can make us better. They will all fall in to 1 of 2 categories; things we should do or things we shouldn’t. Either way, it is knowledge for us, and that is always a great thing. When we learn from others we don’t have to recreate the wheel. When we learn where others came up short, we learn what not to do…another important point of progress. I love immersing myself in teh community so I can constantly absorb what others are doing.

I get a couple of investor newsletters sent to my inbox every money even though I don’t have many stock. I usually find them to be interesting and try and pick up a few tips for when I invest in the stock market again.

I have never gotten a investor newsletter but maybe it might be worth a try. I just do like getting bombarded every five minutes with email. Its hard keeping up. Dont want information overload.

Be very careful and cautious of newsletters. There are hundreds of newsletters out there and 95% of them are known to front run their subscribers by purchasing garbage low float stocks that they can move due to their subscriber base. Even those who you think are legit are suspect. I have been in several chatrooms over the years and have seen many people get burned badly which takes them completely out of the market.
