Investment research to use before investing?

Hi everyone!

Just wondering what resources and publications everyone uses to make investment decisions and follow the markets? Any tips appreciated. I follow a couple but I’m sure there’s more and better:

-Financial Times

Thank you!

I also use and Yahoo Finance as they aggregate information from multiple sources and seem to do a pretty good job at showing the Big News

I also find a lot of value in WSJ and Barron’s as well as Bloomberg and CNBC to discover new topics as companies. For tech news and information also TechCrunch is quite good. is also a nice to have as they show company fundamentals in a very simple and fast to read/review format. Fool is also interesting to keep an eye on but they also show a lot of “sensationalism” just to attract new users to their paid system (there is some value here but I only read it if I have time left).

What has also worked very well for me are Podcasts (from the companies already listed and some others). When I don’t have time to read I tend to turn to Podcasts to keep track of different topics.

Also what I have found during the lockdown and staying a lot closer to my TV is that Bloomberg, CNBC, WSJ and Yahoo Finance have Apple TV apps and offer a lot of live content for free. The Yahoo Finance Apple TV app also shows prices from your watchlist side by side with the news. Really useful as it has allowed me to buy during dips and sell during all time highs.

Morningstar is my main source, followed by Trustnet, and the Financial Times for general market news. I have recently started using Simply Wall Street to look at individual company stocks, and I like the way they present financial data in a nutshell, but their ‘analysis’ articles appear to be written by bots. I enjoy listening to ‘Animal Spirits Podcast’, too.

I look at Simply Wall Street and then do some Googling and such if I’m tempted by a company.
I’m fairly new to investing and was busy clearing my remaining debt when the first 2020 stock market crash happened. Though it is of course in no way a guarantee of a return and everyone should absolutely do their own research, I like using their Screener tool to look for companies whose share price is still low and to check if their fundamentals look good. Though it’s completely valid to say that the data they use is at least mostly publicly available, I think they present it in a nice way.


Great place to a lot of stock related things and make comparisons, no ads, and free atm.
