im very happy with the research i can do on fidelity and i believe most of it can be done by people who dont hold accounts there.

im also very happy with their online tools for me as someone with accounts there.

my brother recently opened up an account with fidelity after being with morgan stanley for a long time. he is much happier with the online tools at fidelity. i kept telling him.

I just checked out Fidelity, I agree, this is probably the best site I've seen so far. It has everything from Ownership insiders to financial statements. Yahoo Finance is also a good site to check.

Do you know any good Tablet apps??

Yahoo Finance is my favorite website to gather specific stock news. Many of the news articles are opinions from various sources giving their insight on good buys or sells. However, never base your decision solely on these guys. Read what they have to say and if it makes sense, do your own research to verify everything and to go one step deeper.

I exclusively use the following.

- EDGAR database at the SEC.gov website
- Value Line Investment Survey (requires a subscription but most can access through their local library)
- Morningstar.com

I use Yahoo Finance to find undervalued stocks and basic investment ideas, and then I go right to the quarterly and annual reports. I know, I know, call me old fashioned, lol. Everything you need to know about a specific company can be found in these reports. Better to get the raw data right from these reports and tune out most of the opinions that are found online these days.

Nothing better than primary sources.

treasurekidd you'll like this - secfilings.com. This nifty gem will search company filings with a nicer web interface than EDGAR, with PDF downloads.

I think trafficking in individual stocks as anything other than a full time job, divided up among dozens of analysts, is foolish. Picking among actively-managed funds is more plausible, but still somewhat foolish. When I engage in that foolishness, instead of just sticking with large, broad-based, low-cost index funds, I use MarketWatch (the only online source I've found for Lipper Leader ratings), Fund Mojo (focusing especially on what they don't like about the fund), and Morningstar (for easiest access to the prospectus).
