Why should I become a Seeking Alpha contributor?

➢ What to write, when, and how often is entirely up to you - you can work on an article and submit it whenever you're ready as long as the content remains timely and current for readers.

What type of articles can I write?

➢ In general, we look for market analysis that is well-presented, actionable, and takes a look at the fundamentals; this could be analysis of the overall market, an investment theme, a sector, or a particular stock (note: we recommend writing about an undercovered stock or unique idea that will stand out from the crowd as opposed to frequently discussed stocks/ideas). Articles do not have to include an explicit buy/sell recommendation to be actionable (i.e., articles can be about macro-economics), but every article must include information that could help a reader make an investment decision in a security or sector.
