Do you want to learn more about playing the stock market? Trying to sort out your RRSPs from your TFSAs in time for tax season? Whatever your personal finance needs, we have free information and expertise for you.
Anyone who wants to do in-depth stock market research will find these financial databases useful:
Value Line is a great place to start learning about investing. It's a financial database featuring rankings of over 6,000 large to mid-cap stocks, 18,000 mutual funds, and 200,000 options, convertibles, and special situation investment opportunities. Stock quotes are updated daily, with a 15-minute delay. Other statistics including overall U.S. Stock Exchange performance are updated daily, while rankings are updated weekly. Value Line also offers company, industry, and market reports and commentaries, along with educational articles, a glossary of investment terms and investment tools.
FP Advisor is a collection of databases from Financial Post Data, among other sources. It offers many of the same features as Value Line, but with a Canadian focus. It features financial and operational information on Canada's top 450 publicly traded companies, including mid-cap and large cap companies. It also offers historical, investor and industry reports.
