Efficient market theory
makes a lot of sense to me, and it works well with my investment style. Thus I have the majority of my portfolio in broad index ETFs.
Though my investment style is boring, I still like to read about what's going on with the U.S. and global stock markets and economies, businesses, and so on. However, I find that a lot of commentary is geared towards the more active investor.
For example, I would consider also investing in 1-2 individual company stocks. However, I don't want to find stocks "top down" by using a stock screener, then researching matches, narrowing down selections based on results, poring over reports, etc. I would rather connect with like-minded people who might occasionally have a handful of well-researched, well-thought-out ideas to invest in.
When I read MarketWatch, or CNBC, I get more of a rushed, hidden-agenda, in-your-face, buy-before-its-too-late feeling from their commentators. I want a commentator who is like, "I'm going to buy one stock this year and hold onto it for 2-5 years. That stock is BLERG, and here is why I am going to buy it. Ok, thanks for reading, talk to you next week when we'll discuss why some ETFs that follow the same index outperform others."
I guess my tl;dr summary would be: what investment blogs, sites, or commentators are out there that present or reflect on current financial news in an honest, thoughtful, and effective way?
