Personal investor learning more about the markets everyday. I am looking for more resources to become better informed on a more timely basis on the stocks in my portfolio. Because I am relatively new to being an "active" investor I rely heavily on Seeking Alpha contributors and also on the "comments" from other members. I have learned to dig deeper on authors to see if they have their own agenda they are touting versus trying to help others build shareholder wealth.
