Research Tools

These are the resources I use to research stocks and crypto.  I have premium accounts on most of these.  There are some I use the free version on.

Seeking Alpha combines all of the research tools from the sites below into one and adds additional features that make it easy to find investment and trade ideas.

I have a Premium plan with Seeking Alpha and I use the in depth stock analysis and analyst research articles to find long term investment ideas.

Alpha Picks

Stock Portfolio up 133% in 2024

Long term investing made easy! Get trade alerts from some of the best long term stock pickers in the world, and get 20% OFF when you sign up using the button below.

We aim to grow the Alpha Picks portfolio by selecting stocks that we believe have the highest probability of capital appreciation. We use a rigorous, data-driven methodology.

We have outperformed the market by using a systematic stock selection process that combines the expertise of Seeking Alpha’s Quantitative Team, the unique data we have access to, and the computational power of the systems we have built.

Our team spends hundreds of thousands of dollars on best-in-class data, analytical tools, and talent so that we can build a portfolio with the potential to outperform the S&P 500.

We understand that our past success in beating the market does not guarantee future success. We are confident that our “quantamental” methodology gives us an edge over the market.

We think a core reason for our outperformance is that we do not focus on one specific style of investing, such as ‘value’. We look for the most attractive opportunities in the market by identifying stocks that are collectively strong on a combination of value, growth, profitability, momentum, and revised forward-looking earnings estimates. This unique, systematic approach is the foundation of our stock selection process.
