Financial Board Central is a superb website designed to aggregate stock news and information in one area to save investors time and effort. The site covers some of the largest investment websites, such as Yahoo! Finance and Google Finance, in real-time and provides users with breaking news and analysis. The site brings together content from message boards and tweets and creates “BuZZ” indexes highlighting the most searched and discussed stocks in social media. According to the Financial Board Central website, the “BuZZ” indexes are designed to show investors which stocks are currently generating significant interest in order to help investors identify the stocks that are most attention-worthy.
There are several sections of the site that are worth mentioning. First, the Web BuZZ area lists the stocks that are currently being written about on the largest financial sites, including CNBC, MarketWatch, TheStreet.com and Seeking Alpha. The list is sorted and analyzed, and the stocks at the top of the list are the ones being written about the most. The website also compares each stock’s current ranking with its ranking at the same time on the previous day, which gives users a good idea as to whether the news is actually new. Certain companies, such as Apple, will consistently place near the top of the list.
