Investing forums?

Can anyone recommend some good internet forums that focus on investing? Things like asset allocation, mutual funds, stocks, bonds, REITs, etc? I've learned a lot from this site about ER and would like to see if there are any similar sites related to investing. Thanks.

While I have read many Seeking Alpha articles -and have generated quite a few investment leads from the website - you must take their articles with a grain of salt.

The "analysis" that they appear to do is sometimes very superficial at best. Most on this forum would always do their own in-depth research before investing in something....but Seeking Alpha won't necessarily get all of the facts straight when they pull them into their articles. For instance, if a closed-end fund generates high distributions, a good part of it could be from return-of-capital, while they only focus on the high distributions.

But, like I said, I have first heard about some positions from the site that I ended up buying after digging around some more, so definitely some value.

Most of what I have read on Seeking Alpha is, to put it bluntly, crap.

I participate in m* forums. There is wide opinion, and you can probably find an interest area you like. The interface is not user friendly as this one is.
