AAII's Best Of The Net: 2011 Guide To The Top Investment Web Sites, 15th Edition Splash image

Content continues to be the single most important determinant of what constitutes a good website. Though Internet users increasingly want to access websites from any location on any number of different devices, content—whether in the form of written articles, video, audio or tools—is what continues to draw visitors to a website. This is why, when putting together our 15th Best of the Net Guide, we placed an emphasis on providing you with a list of the most useful investment-related websites and tools. A useful website has more value than one that may be on the cutting edge from a technological standpoint, but lacks much in the way of good content.

The reviews in this year’s guide are for traditional websites, instead of the new crop of mobile websites. Our rationale is that desktop and laptop computers are still the primary choices for Web surfing, and many mobile websites and apps lack the full functionality that traditional websites offer.

However, we do realize that the growth of the market for iPhones, Android smartphones and tablet computers (e.g., the iPad) is changing the way users are interacting with content. In response, we’ve added a new section in this year’s guide that lists the best financial apps (applications).

A really great website that I didn't see listed here is FinViz.com (Financial Vizualizations). FinViz provides a number of very well organized color heat maps and bubble diagrams that are updated throughout the trading day giving investors a wonderful overview of the market by segment. Their focus is mainly technical. Their stock screener is top notch. Best of all it's free to register.

Yes I agree Finviz is what I use to do my search it has more fields to include in the search than any other search program that I have found. Plus it's free.

Another great website I am surprised is not listed in "Best of the Net" is QuantumOnline.com. It gives an excellent listing and easy to use screen for preferred stocks and and other exchange listed income securities. Its easy to use and gives enough details to well inform about the securities.It's the best I've found for preferred stocks.

Too bad you don't differentiate between web sites that provide downloadable data and/or complete transparency as to methods used to develop opinions.

Also, it would be useful to break down the web sites into the broad categories (by type of information sought) SUCH AS (E)conomic, Stock (M)arket, (S)ector and Industry, (C)ompany analytic categories of fundamental (balance sheet, income statement, cash flow, general, etc.), technical (price and volume data), analytical (ratio, sector, and economic measures), and quantitative (mathematical and engineering tools and methods).

My stock trading system uses the acronym EMSCAN (stole the concept from CANSLIM) to stand for Economy, Market, Sector, Company Analytical, Nexus/Nisus. Bet 99 out of 100 have no clue what Nisus means.

I'd like to see an article or 1st Cut on OPACC(Operating Profit After Capital Charge).
