But be sure you go to Amazon from the Bogleheads link so they get a cut.


Left column, bottom, under "Support this site". End of commercial.

I will do so via Bogleheads. I feel indebted to the website. I would like to consolidate the magazine ordering as it will be one small step in streamlining my life. I have to fight against my natural tendency to do things in the most laborious and inefficient way possible.

Like others I am no fan of the popular financial magazines, although would echo that Kiplinger's is the best of a not great lot.

Actually the one Schwab sends out to its investors is generally quite good. Vanguard has some excellent articles on its website, although they tend to be geared to the more advanced investors.

Not a magazine about 'which stocks to invest in now' but big on information & theory is The Economist. I have had a subscription for many, many years now, DW calls herself 'an Economist widow'. Lots of statistics at the back of the magazine and very stimulating for thinking about economic issues.

AND the magazine has excellent coverage of world news -- better than one can find in Time or Newsweek.

I fully back the Economist recommendation (though not so much on investing), and strongly recommend reading their website blogs.

I get the Schwab due to 401k - it's worth skimming, but pretty fluffy. At least I don't get the impression that they are trying to sell me (other than "you must save and invest more and work longer!" which coincidentally might help their business), and for most people, they are probably right.

We don't subscribe to any magazines that we pay for.

For current financial stuff, the free articles at the NYTimes and Wall Street Journal are all you need. Many articles from these sites are linked on this forum all the time. That keeps you up-to-date to changes in tax laws, etc.

The New York Times - Breaking News, World News & Multimedia Check out the Business and YourMoney sections

Sunday Journal Partner Main - WSJ.com
Business News & Financial News - The Wall Street Journal - WSJ.com

I don't buy paper magazines anymore. Instead, I buy digital magazines on Zinio because I can take them with me where ever I go and read them on my iPad, iPhone and computer. I can keep my digital copies forever if I wish and they don't collect dust.

I subscribe to a number of digital magazines. Some US magazines and some foreign magazines that would otherwise be impossible to find here. My topics of interest include food and wine, finances, current events, RVing, aviation and travel.

For financial stuff, I subscribe to Smart Money (cheap subscription) and I occasionally read Money, Kiplinger and the Economist. For those three, I only buy issues with interesting topics, for example Kiplinger's special "retirement" issue.

I also receive free "magazines" from USAA and Vanguard. They often have good quality articles.

I suppose the exception would be industry periodicals.

Online you can read the Journal of Financial Planning. Journal of Financial Planning

There are other whitepapers and professional periodicals available online.

IMO - Most of the commercial rags targeted at retail investor are not worth the time... much less the money.
