What websites have proven valuable to you as an investor?

What websites have proven to be a complete waste of time (or worse)?

Please include a recommendation, a link to the website, and the reason(s) that you find the website good or bad. (Posts with links alone or useless generalities ("This site is the bomb!" "This site sucks!") will be removed.)

Here are three sites I regularly frequent. They focus more on macroeconomics rather than on individual stocks:

http://www.zerohedge.com/

ZeroHedge is the best financial/economic site I've come across. Reports on all aspects of the global economy without any fluff or spin. Not for the permabull or Keynesian. If you choose to take the redpill continue on to ZeroHedge. If you choose to take the bluepill go to CNBC.

http://www.financialsense.com/index.php

I like Financial Sense mainly for its weekly podcast: The Financial Sense Newshour. Jim Puplava interviews a variety of guests on all aspects of the economy and markets. They also have shorter mid-week podcasts and daily exclusive and non-exclusive editorials from many different writers.

http://market-ticker.org/

Karl Denninger writes daily "tickers" covering all aspects of the economy/markets. Like ZeroHedge, no fluff or spin. Also has a very active forum.

Working in the industry I use several excellent websites for research.

www.seekingalpha.com

Excellent contributing community as well as professionals. This website is a must to join if your'e serious about investing and want to really know whats going on. Yahoo routinely links to seekingalpha articles.

www.bigcharts.com

Great site to look at charts, historical prices, option quotes, articles, etc.

www.earnings.com

earning reports and dates, dividend ex dates etc.

www.earningswhispers.com

Polls analysts to get a jump on earning releases and has a member consensus as well as analysts consensus.

www.yahoo.com/finance

The first place I go to find information on equities. beta, yield, company profiles, and I could go on.

www.optionseducation.org

A wealth of knowledge on options trading. This site can give you the basics to understanding option strategies. OIC also does seminars around the country a lot of times for free which can be found on this site.

Im on these sites every day.

Financial Vizualizations - I have found this to be the best site for scanning the market and identifying trend breakouts.


The Fly - Generally good market reads, albeit very crude in the delivery... fitting for The Street.


I would also concur with sevenrd regarding Zero Hedge and circuit-racer regarding SeekingAlpha
