“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Last week I brought you my favorite value blogs. Those blogs are great for ideas, but there is only so much you can do when you are given a fish to eat. Long term success depends on learning how to fish.

The following list of sites teach you how to fish as they focus on educating investors instead of providing stock ideas.

“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Last week I brought you my favorite value blogs. Those blogs are great for ideas, but there is only so much you can do when you are given a fish to eat. Long term success depends on learning how to fish.

The following list of sites teach you how to fish as they focus on educating investors instead of providing stock ideas.

1. Investopedia

Summary: Overall, best site for all levels to learn from.

Why I like it: Not just an encyclopedia or dictionary. Investopedia offers some of the most in-depth and detailed educational how to’s and articles on investing.

2 & 3. Musings on Markets and his Resource Page

Summary: Professor Damodaran’s blog.  Has been teaching corporate finance and valuation classes at NYU for 26 years.

Why I like it: No better way to learn MBA grade lessons for free. You get lectures, video recordings, slides, book recommendations, spreadsheets and more.

4. CS (Case Study) Investing

Summary: Self taught investor and educator advocate. Case studies, videos, lecture notes from Greenblatt and Greenwald classes he sat in to audit.

Why I like it: Treasure trove of information that only fundamental investors can appreciate.

5. Geoff Gannon via Gurufocus

Summary: Geoff’s articles on Gurufocus

Why I like it: Writes his heart out on investing to share and teach others.

6. Grumpy Old Accountants

Summary: Two associate professors combining their super brains to shed light on accounting used by public companies.

Why I like it: Learn from experts to understand accounting disclosures, reporting methods and other accounting principles.

7. Alpha Architect

Summary: Site focused on academic research and quantitative strategies

Why I like it: I admit a lot of the articles go over my head, but there are some which are incredibly useful. The content of their research helps you to think and question concepts you may have taken for granted.

8. Greenbackd

Summary: Transformed from a cheap stocks blog to more of a research type blog.

Why I like it: I’m happy to report that Greenbackd has been writing again lately. Lots of interesting topics are covered breaking conventional wisdom.

  • Great list, Jae. Like all of them.
    I would add http://beta.wallstreetsurvivor.com to this list. I’ve been working with them on a project to gamify investor education. Great product, great team.

    Check out Stockopedia in the UK. http://www.stockopedia.co.uk . They do lots of the valuation models presented here, stock screen tracking across value strategies like Graham etc and stock reports for all in the market. Also free book on Value investing and loads of content.

  • great site fellas. I know that stockopedia uses some of my ideas so I’m glad my stuff is getting out there.
    @Zack,
    Looks like a very interesting and obviously well built site. I’m going through it right now.

    Gannon and CS Investing are some of my favorites! CS Investing is a huge use of my time so approach it with caution – his posts are lengthy, but they reference material that is even lengthier and so I end up spending a ton of time going through the books he recommends and staying involved with everything he puts up. I honestly don’t know how he has time to do this. Gannon is a very unique gentleman who seems to get down to the “essence of investing” in my opinion, and with continued work, I think it’s only a matter of time before he starts an investment fund of his own.

  • Yea I completely agree. I changed my settings on CS investing to get weekly digest emails. Makes it easier to go through.

    It will be interesting to see the direction Gannon goes. However, I wonder how his investors will fare with having 4-5 holdings only?
