Seeking Alpha gives a lot of information on the various stocks, ETF’s, and Mutual Funds. They seem to be quite objective, as well as informative and concise. There is no subscription cost for the majority of the service, and you can get daily information on select companies you may be interested in.

Another FREE gift to those of us interested in “fleshed out” reviews of every kind of investment out there.

Had it not been for SA, I probably would not have discovered Chris Ciovacco. While I can’t afford to hire this Atlanta based money mgr., his market instincts almost parallel my own views most of the time.

SA also ranks their contributing analysts by 4 categories, & most of these folks provide both email addresses & tel.#’s to reach them.

I read this publication every morning as it further educates & enlightens me.

Like Gumshoe.com it deserves 5 ***** in my book.

SA is great. Lots to read and a lot of political opinions. After I while you select the contributors you like and you get an email with only their contributions. This is great and free. You have excellent contributors.

I subscribed to Seeking Alpha about 6 months ago. I am relatively new to investing and only have about 15 years left to retirement, so I was looking for unbiased articles that would help me educate myself on investing. I am very pleased with the quality of the most of the articles and the comments posted by members about the articles. These give you many views of the company or investment talked about in the article and many times include links to reports or other articles about the topic. I have learned a lot by reading Seeking Alpha daily! I… Read more »

my only experience with seeking alpha was that they ran old negative news as though it was new, I was looking for why a stock was down found there news item posted that day. After talking with a friend he pointed out that it was written by a short seller that had released this “news” 4 months earlier also. Be careful…

Seeking Alpha covers a wide range of topics, is informative and entertaining. I can’t give it five stars because the articles are not vetted at all. Any whacko can post any disinformation he wants. The quality of contributions is all over the map. It’s great value for money: it’s free! Customer service? I don’t think there is any. Consistency? On a free-for-all website, consistency doesn’t even signify. The power of Seeking Alpha is that anyone can log in and comment on any article. And they do; from all over the world! When an article intrigues me, I need only wait… Read more »

This is one of the worst financial web sites I’ve ever seen. They allow people to post the most ridiculous and stupid comments, and when you complain about it, they block you. The customer service people are complete idiots. Morons like “entmd” show just how pathetic this web site really is.

Seeking Alpha has its plus and minus aspects, but overall I found it to be a good aid to my financial education. There are some very good and reliable commentators and some that are terrible but the comments that quickly follow any article always set things straight, whether that’s substantiating the author’s pov or tearing it apart.

I am an ex-contributor on seeking alpha – warning to anyone else who writes on that site: if they want to they will screw you over!
One of my articles was wildly successful and they refused to pay me for it (a couple of months after it had been up on the site) because of some “non-genuine” page views. When queried as to what they were referring to, no evidence was provided. I think they are desperate to show a working biz model before they cash out with an IPO.

They bombard you with their emails so that I soon unsubscribed which did not help, as they ignore the request. Now they flood my spam box!

Seeking Alpha allows practically anyone to post articles which makes it a dangerous website. Recently an article appeared dicing MJNA stock, questioning its financial veracity. Next day, MJNA released its quarterly earnings. The previous article written bya short-seller instantly disappeared from the website. The suckers who sold out their shares were contributing to the welfare of the short-seller. So, read with your eyes and your mind open. Everything you read there is not legit.

On Time Tech and Eunice Braam are right on the money. I commented on a few treads over at Seeking Alpha just to reintroduce some common sense as the crazy are allowed/encouraged to run wild and free. Soon my comments were blocked. Fine – their site, their rules. No issues with that. Then I tried to unsubscribe. But because there is no cancellation/unsubscribe feature I contacted customer support. Bad mistake. They do not want you to cancel for some reason. Perhaps they try to show membership numbers to future investors in Seeking Alpha? Don’t know… Some articles were interesting to… Read more »
