Schwab, and Vanguard website.
The Motley fool's discussion board, I have tried some of their newsletter but never paid real money.
Wall St. Journal
I do subscribe to Morningstar and use there site extensively for research.
I also have two newletters from M* Dividends and StockInvestor.

I have used Value Line in decades but I did like it reasonably well.

Mostly EDGAR, research on funds from the Fidelity website (where my brokerage account is) and occasionally morningstar. I check quotes and see company specific news on Yahoo! Finance. I like to read FT and WSJ for general finance news

pssst Wellesley - also peek at Buffett picks, Dodge&Cox and a few others top ten stock holdings.

Only subscription left is Moneypaper which I will let run out after ten plus years cause of exiting the DRIP plan stocks - maybe for sure.

I never research anymore - after forty years it didn't help me anymore than a monkey throwing darts. I generally used to - 1989 - 2000 pick stocks from the middle(Ben Graham's 'the middle way') of the list in Mergents Dividend Achiever's which seemed to be in the upper half of their historical dividend yield or equal to a livable number - div plus div growth better than 11% BUT the div side had to be at least 3%. Handgrenade wise. A recognizible business having been around many decades also helped.

My checkered past is littered with many of the usual suspects: Barron's, Wall Street Journal, Money, etc., etc.

Heck I even read Books - which I now consider a stupid waste of time. I feel I have successfully over forty years made every investment mistake in the book.

"Do or do not - there is no try." Yoda.

I just buy the blindingly obvious - a lot of them - DCA for 7 to 10 years and sell the ones I don't like anymore.

heh heh heh - why not just pssst Wellesley and be done with it - it's a male hormone thing - not sure who I'll brag to - but I will fail to be modest.

I use free tools on Schwab, Optionsxpress, Ameriprise. I also use morningstar, their vanguard forum, and the vanguard site. Finally, this forum. If I need a lot of detail, I will access the library tools, but I have not needed to do that in a while.

J/K, almost never watch the guy.
If you followed his strategy of buying certain $80 stocks because they sometimes go to $120, you would have your head handed to you. No joke, 2-3 months ago he was recommending a handful of $80-85 stocks stating that they usually go to $120 because they just do. That was the craziest reasoning I have ever heard. Of course today he said he told everyone to ring the cash register when stocks were hefty. Ring Ring Ring the cash register.

My barber is #1 and then my brother-in-law. The latter is going to put me into an EIA.

Too bad....you are missing a really good shoe! Cramer cracks me up, but then I get my fill of him and can't watch anymore. I think he's going to jail eventually. He was actually pretty decent today when he appeared early on to bash the financials on the Ambac downgrade.
