In a previous post, I mentioned The Motley Fool as the main website that I use to get tips about what stocks I should buy or keep on my watchlist. While this is still my go-to-website, another website that I use to get ideas is Investor Place.
Investor Place is relatively similar to The Motley Fool because both sites have articles about certain stocks to buy in certain industries. Also, both sites do solid research and have reputable information to back up their claims. I would say one way they are slightly different is that Investor Place typically has more stock recommendations, whereas The Motley Fool articles tend to do a deeper dive on a smaller number of stocks.
I think that using Investor Place and The Motley Fool in tandem is a good strategy; personally, I like reading all of their articles to see which stocks they have in common, as if both of them are recommending it there must be a reason it seems like a good buy. However, it is also useful to check both sites because sometimes they have differing opinions on certain picks, with one being bullish and one being more bearish; this contrast is useful because you can see the advantages/disadvantages people see in investing in a specific stock.
As I mentioned in my Motley Fool post, these types of websites will never be perfect in the stocks they recommend. It is your job as an investor to pick what stocks you will ultimately invest in; however, sites like Investor Place do a great job of doing background research on companies and giving stock ideas that investors can investigate more deeply.
This is a blog for myself (and hopefully others) to keep track of all of the places, restaurants, books, movies, etc. that I do not want to forget. I am a college student who has lived in the US, Asia, and Europe for extended periods of time; I am very lucky to have had these experiences, and I want to share my recommendations with people interested in any of these locations.
NONE of these posts are advertisements. I do not have any discount codes or promotions for anything I write about; however, this should be considered a positive because it means that everything I write about reflects my true feelings. In order to keep this blog positive, my posts will only be recommendations for the things I enjoy the most in life. The topics will vary between whatever subjects I am interested in at a certain time, and I will have 1-2 new posts per day.
I wish I could have started this project earlier while some of my memories were fresher in my mind, but it is better late than never. I hope that other people will have the chance to visit or experience things that I write about, and I hope that people will have a similar taste in life to myself!
