If you’re serious about the way you find the stocks you buy and follow them once they’re yours, here’s a link you should definitely check out: www.companysleuth.com. You tell it the stocks you’re interested in, and it automatically searches for and e-mails you stuff that would take you much longer to find – like patent and trademark applications and insider trading reports.
Especially if you trade in a taxable account, it’s possible that this level of detail could tempt you to trade in and out far too often. As discussed last week, even in a tax-deferred account, buy-and-hold generally works best.
But for those who do their investment homework, this site is an easy and at least for now, free way to get a possible edge.
(It may be of even more interest to business folk eager to keep an eye on the competition. As in: “They filed a patent application on what? Uh, oh.”)
Quote of the Day
Every gun that is fired, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. The world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children.~Dwight D. Eisenhower, 1953
