Any Good Finance/stock Market Websites?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good Finance/Stock Market/News website?

I've been vaguely looking at Yahoo Finance for a day or two and wanted to look up information on Residential Construction companies which I found: From the homepage, I navigated through Industries then Complete Industries List, and finally from there to a Residential Construction page.

This is all fine and lovely, except it's not for the UK as far as I can tell, and the UK Yahoo Finance site doesn't seem to work the same!

So, anyway... if anyone can recommend a good finance site for this sort of thing, that'd be great! Thanks! :)

If you are looking for Bullet Boards you could try www.iii.co.uk or www.fool.co.uk or advfn.com

I hope these are of some help?

Thanks for the reply.

My original query came about as a result of reading one of DrBubb's posts about house-builder stocks. I was wondering whether individual sectors within the stock market would, semi-independently of the rest of the market, have their own bearish or bullish periods. So, basically, I wanted to be able to view a summary of an individual market sector, such as Yahoo! Finance seem to have[1].

It was only when I tried this, that I realised that I was looking at US data (or, at least, I think it's US data), so I took a look at Yahoo! Finance (UK & Ireland), but it wasn't laid out the same way, and, after nosing around for a while, couldn't find an equivalent to the 'Industries' section of the other Yahoo! Finance site.

So, that's it really -- I just wanted to be able to see summaries of stock market activity based around individual sectors or industries.

By the way, what's a 'Bullet Board'?

Thanks again! :)

[1] If you want to see what kind of thing I mean, go to Yahoo! Finance, then click on the Industries link down the left-hand side, then click on Complete Industry List (again, down the left side), and, finally (using the house-builder stocks example), click on Residential Construction which is right near the bottom of the page in the left column.

Hi OJ

Bulltraderpt would have meant bulletin boards. iii's are nice but there's a looot of ramping (both bullish and bearish) but as an HPC veteran I'm sure you'll be able to sort the wheat from the chaff.

I use digitallook for my share-spotting, I'm not sure if it's got all the features you need but it has lots of stock screeners so you may be in luck!

It's obvious he must've mean bulletin boards now you point it out. Can you believe I actually searched for 'bullet boards' using Google and on Wikipedia? :lol:

be careful with the numbers that are reported for companies.

so use more than one source.

particularly with regard future earnings/ P/E and PEG+1 numbers.

Don't listen too much to what other people are writing on the boards either.

And DYOR - do your own research
