Is there a Mac version of Stock Investor?

Stock Investor is a Windows-based application. Our surveys of AAII members tells us that less than 15% of membership uses the Mac OS, which we feel is not a large enough pool of potential users to devote resources to a Mac version of the program.

For Mac users with Intel-based systems, you can use dual-boot software such as Bootcamp or virtualization software such as Parallels to run Windows (and Stock Investor) on your Mac. However, we are not able to provide support for these users.
