Expert Stock Market Blogs Threaten Investment Media
Expert financial and stock market blogs are quickly becoming a widely read alternative source of business news and opinion. Financial news media websites like Yahoo Finance, CNN Money and MSN MoneyCentral are not providing access to this resource and risk losing web traffic because of it.
InvesLogic Inc., the first business and stock market website to specialize in aggregating and organizing expert stock market, industry and investment blogs, announced today that it had launched the latest version of its website www.inveslogic.com
. The InvesLogic website now aggregates, filters, and organizes an average of 500 new articles every business day originating from over 250 of the world's top financial and business blogs. Inveslogic has also expanded the number of sectors it covers from 10 to almost 40.
"Why do you need the news when it's just news" stated George Fleming, founder of InvesLogic. "Blogs provide investors with the news together with valuable commentary and opinion. And when the blogger is a former Presidential economic advisor, or a hedge fund manager, or a noted VC, or a well known financial television commentator, or an institutional fund manager, or a widely read financial author, or a principal currency trader, or some other highly qualified expert, their opinion is worth a lot."
Top Financial News Websites Ignore Blogs While Audience Grows
According to Amazon's Alexa, the top three rated investment news websites are Yahoo! Finance, CNN/Money, and MSN MoneyCentral. None of these sites provide access to financial blogs. At the same time the blog audience continues to grow rapidly. According to a recent Comscore Media Metrix report, blog visitation grew 56% over the past year to 58.7 million visitors representing 34% of the total internet audience.
Expert Blogs and InvesLogic
Stock market, business and financial blogging has grown beyond personal trading diaries and investor blogs. A growing number of nationally and internationally recognized financial and business experts have developed blogs which provide valuable news, commentary, and educated opinion on a wide range of interesting and useful topics to investors.
InvesLogic has hand picked over 250 of these expert blogs and organized their content into 40 categories. To become one of this select group a blog has to either be written by an acknowledged expert with substantial credentials or have proven over time that the content provided is of a high caliber.
Some of the notable blogs InvesLogic has picked include: GigaOM, The Big Picture, Gala Time, The Peridot Capitalist, Kudlow's Money Politics, Deal Book, TechDirt, Infectious Greed, Carl Futia, Internet Outsider, Random Roger's Big Picture, The Stalwart, Feld Thoughts, Economists View, Barnako, In the Money, Seeking Alpha, The Trading Desk, Jeff Mathews Is Not Making This Up, MacroBlog, Brad DeLong's Semi-Daily Journal, Seeing Both Sides, John Batelle's Search Blog, The Oil Drum, The Stock Advisors, Tech Crunch, Belt and Braces, FC Now, George Clemen, Daily Dose of Optimism, Urlocker on Disruption, Deal Breaker, The Capital Spectator, A Fistful of Euros, Brain Waves, Technofile, Drug Wonks, China Net Investor, The Post Money Value, Ticker Sense, Clean Break, Clean Edge, Michael Parekh on IT, The Becker-Posner Blog, Vigilant Investor, Health Business Blog, Gold Seek, Atomic Insights, NEI Nuclear Notes, Who Has Time For This, Pharma's Cutting Edge, Howard Lindzon, Trade King Blog, Asia Business Intelligence, Green Car Congress, Bill Cara, Dr. John Rutledge, Business 2 Blog, Think Equity Blog, The Confused Capitalist, Larry Macdonald, Resource Investor, East West Energy Chronicle, The Watt, Schaeffers Research, Word on Wall Street, Big Picture Speculator, Silicon Valley Watcher, Silicon Beat, Deep Green Crystals, Trader Feed, Venture Blog, and Mark Evans.
Blog Content is Highly Focused on Emerging and Hot Sectors
InvesLogic organizes almost 3000 blog entries each and every week into 40 categories, providing access to the most popular articles, most popular blogs and most popular sectors as determined by website visitors. Because bloggers tend to focus on the latest trends, and topics which are currently widely covered in the media, much of this content is oriented towards emerging sectors such as Cleantech Investing, Alternative Energy, Uranium, Biodeisel & Ethanol, Green Venture Capital, VoIP, WiFi & Broadband, Internet, and Wireless.
Other areas that produce a wide range of expert blog content include Venture Capital, Economics, The Fed, Oil& Gas, Gold, Software, Currencies, Commodities, Canadian Mining Stocks, ETF's, China, India, and Daily Trading Commentaries. Although some of these sectors are constantly in the media and are widely commented on, others like Commodities, Uranium, Gold, Oil & Gas, and Canadian Mining Stocks are reflecting the continuing strength and market activity in commodities and natural resources.
"Bloggers are the pulse of the markets" Fleming stated. "They are impassioned about their subject and expert bloggers know what they're talking about. They tell us what's hot and analyze in detail the factors driving investment and business trends. This is a resource that smart investors are beginning to tap into."
InvesLogic is something new. It's the first company to organize expert financial and business blogs worth reading into a new form of market intelligence different from anything being provided by the mainstream investment media. We're focused on providing the most valuable and timely market and business insight available in blogs today. Not just information about a specific stock or company but expert opinion and commentary about the insiders, sectors, trends, industries, and commodities a company is involved in.
"If you want to know what's going on in the hot areas of the economy and stock markets, bloggers are talking about it."
