  • InsiderInsights Really Needs Your Input!

    Thanks to the handful of our SA followers who have gotten back to us since we instablogged on Oct. 7 asking the important strategic question:

    Should give away more free stuff and move away from a subscription model to an ad-driven one?

    But we need to hear from more of you by this Friday October 17th!!

    We have over 900 followers on SA, yet only 41 official votes thus far for more free stuff--plus nearly as many emails sent to us directly from followers who don't have Facebook accounts. (Yes, annoyingly, Chase is using Facebook as a way to confirm votes are valid.)

    This is not a sales pitch or a way to gather leads. It's an honest survey, and we want to know your opinion. We are using this Chase Bank Grant form to act as our voting tally--because qualifying for the grant could help us fund the transition from our present subscription model. So why not?

    But while the grant is unnecessary to this decision process, your opinion is absolutely needed!

    So if you don't feel comfortable voting here, just send us an email at and say "Yes to more free stuff" in the subject. For that matter, you can also relay the same in the comment section of this instablog. It's all the same to us. But we need to see more interest and less apathy to make a larger commitment to SA.

    Also feel free to specify what sort of insider screens, tables, commentary, and educational materials you would most like to see from us. We literally wrote the book on using insider data in the investment process, and are already the #1 provider of insider stuff on SA. But we know we can do more for you--both via our website and through more SA columns.

    But you have to let us know!

    Thanks in advance, and we look forward to hearing from you by this Friday!

  • Help Give Away More Free Stuff!

    Dear SA followers.

    This is a quick Instablog to ask if you can take 15 seconds to click the link below, and then click the "VOTE NOW" button that is displayed. needs 250 votes to qualify for consideration for a Chase Bank Mission Grant by the end of next week.

    Our grant proposal includes several projects, including accelerating the integration of 13D "Activist" filings in all or our data output--including our Free Insider Data.

    We can't offer any direct incentives for votes, but I can relay that we've committed in our Chase proposal to move a segment of our now paid-for Premium Insider Analytics to our Free Insider Data section if we get the grant, as a way to give back to the investment community.

    Heck, we may do it anyway without the grant if we see enough interest from our SA followers and other users of our Free Insider Products!

    So help us justify giving away more free stuff! Here's the link:

  • InsiderInsights TV Appearance: MNK, KMI, IDXX + We Want Your Feedback!

    We thought we would let our SA followers know of a 7 minute TV spot by Jonathan Moreland, Director of Research at, on Canada's Business News Network.

    It can be accessed by going to the Media Mentions page of, or directly from the BNN website.

    Mr. Moreland relays opinions on several stocks on InsiderInsights Recommended List, including Mallinckrodt Plc (NYSE:MNK), Kinder Morgan (NYSE:KMI), and IDEXX Labs (NASDAQ:IDXX). He also leads with some market commentary.

    We are also soliciting feedback via a comment string at the bottom of our Daily Round Up for 8/29/14.

    The string originated with a couple SA users who did not find the article format useful. We believe we have explained our intent with the Daily Round Ups, but the format of these articles is hardly written in stone. Let us know how you think we can make them more useful.

    While we can't logically give away all of our real-time content and insider analytics for free (hey, we have to eat too), we are committed to increase the quality of insider-related content on SA. Help us with your comments.

    As a starter, do know that we intend to add insider screen articles and stock-specific insider pieces to our article stream. So even if you write nothing, more will be on its way in coming weeks.

    Best to all, and I approve this Instablog!
