Hey everyone - just curious as to which websites/blogs etc. you receive like a daily newsletter from? The guys at my shop suggested a few (i.e. Pitchbook, PERE, etc.) just curious as to what you all here use.

Thanks for mentioning Pitchbook, never heard of it before.

Breakfast briefing and 10pt news from WSJ are pretty useful. Others include MorningBrew, Finimize, Seeking Alpha

This is actually extremely similar to MorningBrew except for being shorter. I'll sub to this too and see which one I like better

Aug 23, 2017

Wall Street Breakfast from Seeking Alpha is quite good

Aug 23, 2017

Do a search on WSO. There are many threads out there discussing this. I like the following:

  • The front page side column from the Wall Street Journal
  • Wall Street Breakfast from Seeking Alpha (link)
  • Dan Primack's blog on Axios (link)
  • Term Sheet (link)
  • Deal Book (link)
  • Dealreaker (link)

Morning Brew here on WSO is also pretty solid.

Agree - think these are generally the best. Dealbook, PEHub, & Term Sheet are my personal favs.

Aug 23, 2017

Cool thanks for all the feedback guys.

I really like the Economist. It's definitely dry reading, but they're great at giving truly unbiased, non-judgemental analyses. Wall Street Journal has gotten a little bit partisan these days and I hate when news articles read like Op-Eds.

For political gossip I'll usually read a CNN/NYT article followed by a Fox News article to get both sides because I know CNN and NYT will come out left leaning and Fox will have a conservative counterargument.

Would say you have it covered. Washington Post also solid.

Aug 23, 2017

I hate watching Bloomberg TV, next time you watch it count how many times they say: "Bring up that Bloomberg chart," or "Look at this chart," and take a shot.

where's your sense of humor?

The Onion is personally my favorite, followed by this forum, and then the Reddit Front page last.

Morningstar has decent data feeds. Everything else is expensive. BTW, You can run scripts in yahoo and really get decent analytics for estimates. If you're making a screener by industry, use S&P's categories.

Aug 23, 2017

Morning star is pretty good, I just had a look. They show what they think the under valued companies are, which is really useful

Aug 23, 2017

Business Insider, Fox News, Buzzfeed

Buzzfeed has some really good stock articles about why males are oppressing every female based stock

Check out FinViz:
FinViz News
FinViz Screener

Also use MorningStar, Google Finance, and sometimes Yahoo and SeekingAlpha.

finviz is really condensed and full of article names, it looks like a good site. My biggest problem with google and yahoo was that they are full of pictures, ads and random shit that doesnt let you scan everything quickly. Its more pictures than articles

Seeking Alpha.

I just read the Michael Lewis book about myself. After that, I see my greatness in movie form. Those are the only sources I need.

Aug 23, 2017

i usually use the italian "Sole 24 ore". But i think that having some RSS on blogs is the best idea.

I would add the Financial Times to that list for sure!

Aug 23, 2017

For business, I like Seeking Alpha's Wall Street Breakfast and MarketSnacks. MarketSnacks is like the daily newsletter version of the WSJ's "side column" on the front page.

Aug 23, 2017

Nice - marketsnacks looks clean, just signed up to see what its about.

In the morning I check bloomberg and read their "Five Things You Need to Know to Start Your Day" and whatever articles look interesting. Then I load up WSJ and go through the sections and load up a bunch of tabs with whatever I want to read and read articles sporadically throughout the day.

Other than that I get notifications from random news sources sent to my phone and might glance at CNN or CNBC but WSJ is where I get the bulk of my news.

I also check SeekingAlpha but more so for news on a specific stock
