“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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
