  • Seeking Alpha Expands Relationship With Nasdaq [View article] was actually mentioned in the Q&A of yesterday's earnings call from FactSet:

    Do you use Do you know people who use them -- and if so, what specific job functions do they have in the financial sector?

    On the call, FactSet's COO thought would appeal to wealth managers, and Phil Hadley FactSet's CEO argued that "ultra-high-net-worth" wealth managers (I assume he meant those with larger rather than smaller AUM) were still likely to prefer FactSet.

  • An End To Our Relationship With Yahoo, A New Era For Equity Research [View article]
    @Currant85 At the bottom of almost all articles on Seeking Alpha, above the comments section, there's a unit showing a list of headlines about that stock ticker. Above the list, there's a little orange icon next to the heading "Latest Articles on {a particular stock}". Right-click that orange icon (on a PC), or control-click it (on a Mac) and you can copy the link to the RSS feed for Seeking Alpha articles on that ticker.

    For example, go to this article (if for some reason the link I paste below gets messed up, the try searching for the title "A Flurry Around Yahoo In Q3 2014" using Google to get there from the search results page):

    At the bottom of the article, just above the comments, there's a section headed "Latest on YHOO". That is the RSS feed for just that ticker. Click on loads in your browser to add to your RSS feed reader.

    @jojopuppyfish: We do actually have the RSS feeds you mention which are available for personal use. You'll find them at the bottom of any primary ticker (focus) article for a feed of items about that ticker. There's an icon to copy the RSS feed URL.

    If you want to do this more easily for many tickers, the URLs are of the form: "" where you can just replace the AAPL with whatever ticker symbol you want.

    For commercial use, we create custom feeds for business development partners. Any company or site interested in this product should contact us at if that is the case.

  • Norwegian Air tries to disrupt trans-Atlantic market [View news story]
    A few thoughts:

    -- This is not the first low-cost venture that has been attempted on transatlantic flights: in the economy market, there was Laker Airways back in the 1970s, flyZoom more recently. In the "low-cost" business class market carved out by MaxJet and EOS Airlines, British Airways' OpenSkies is the sole survivor (having taken over their competitor L'Avion). What makes Norwegian more likely to succeed where others have failed?

    -- Are passengers really willing to consider price alone, without regard to reliability or quality of service, for long-haul flights? Small seat pitch and unbundling everything may work on short-haul, but will it work on flights of 6+ hours and be attractive to people, especially on the routes they are trying?

    -- Norwegian Air doesn't have an excellent record for on-time operation or in-flight service. See this for more details of delays and spoiled food:

  • Using Stocktalk [View instapost]
    bd4uandu -- Thank you for making the effort to put this together: the care and thought that you put into mentoring new participants in StockTalk is exemplary, and the cohesiveness, community spirit and enthusiasm of the StockTalk community is a wonderful thing.

    It's exciting to note that we're closing in on the milestone of 20k unique StockTalkers (as I write, at 19,956):

    StockTalk is a growing part of Seeking Alpha — as witnessed by its inclusion on our recently redesigned portfolio page, where you'll notice that StockTalk appears as the third column below the portfolio data table itself:

    Thank you again for your enthusiasm and for creating this excellent guide for the community.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    @TBill: Your concern about "organizations that will pay basement dwellers to seek out successful lists with good audiences and post the party line" is a valid one.

    We, too, would like people to be able to trust discussion (at least to have a good chance of assessing who a commenter is, if they have a specific bias that would cast what they say in a different light).

    For that reason, we ask IR and PR firms and anyone with a connection to a company they're posting about to disclose that:

    @D_Virginia: Comment replies which are nested underneath a comment which gets deleted do sometimes get removed because the moderators have to explicitly de-thread the discussion. It's a technical issue which we are working to rectify and improve upon.

    We do try as far as we can not to remove threaded material if it is not offensive. Human beings do make mistakes sometimes, though.

    To give you an idea of comment volume on SA:

    In January there were almost 125,000 comments posted on the site: tens of thousands of these were approved by the moderators. I estimate another few thousand were deleted.
