Relatively new to investing in individual stocks; previously used mainly mutual funds. Interested in dividend growth investing, with a goal of eventual income replacement. Enjoy learning, particularly when it comes to growing and preserving wealth, and am very appreciative of the many within the SA community who are willing to share both knowledge and experience.
Stockviews is a tool for amateur and professional investors. It aggregates stock opinions from a variety of sources, including Wall Street, Twitter, the financial press and 13F SEC filings. Algorithms are used to ensure the information is highly relevant to the decision-making process. This project is the creation of a professional fund manager who recognised there was a huge amount of information available on the web, but limited means to filter it in an effective way. Stockviews.com is due to launch towards the end of March.

When greed is expensive, sell it and the underlying.
