Preamble

The internet is an essential resource, both for research and teaching. The internet also changes over time and links on this page may go stale. In the past few years there have been numerous important links appear, such as those for different professors. This is in addition to the numerous sites which have been established for some time, such as those for the government agencies like the CFTC, SEC and Board of Governors. The various futures exchanges have also greatly increased on line presence.

All this leaves the web site developer with a difficult task of organizing the various sites in some fashion and in keeping up with stale links. The decision here was to use functionality to classify sites.

A conscious attempt has been made to avoid sites which require payments, have an elaborate subscriber format and the like. Freedom to navigate has been a guide.
However, it can happen that a once free site become a subscriber/pay site and these sites do appear.
(Thanks to all those responsible for providing some useful links.) For those coming from pages using frames and wanting a full page (w/o the split screen), change your URL to www.sfu.ca/~poitras/links.htm

Sites for Security Analysis (BUS 417/902) Research


A number of the General Sites at the start of the links page are good places to begin a search for company information. Bloomberg, for example, is very useful. Some of the sites listed under BUS 315 below can be useful, e.g., the brokerage house sites. The sites in the following list typically have much more detail on either specific topics or general applications. While websites for publicly traded companies do have key filings, the definitive sites for filings with the OSC and SEC are SEDAR (OSC) and EDGAR (SEC)

Zacks This is something of a source site which is linked to by many other stock research pages ... a must look.
Globe and Mail site Go to the business part. An all round great site.
The Street.com James Cramer from 'Kudlow and Cramer' runs this site. Definitely worth a visit . See also the companion site Mad Money Stocks.com (look a few lines down for the links to Cramer's Mad Money show).
Investor's Edge . A site like Globe investor -- good news format.


Berkshire-Hathaway website This site has lots of interesting information about the 'Warren Buffett' approach to security analysis. The annual report of Berkshire is one of the must reads for those interested in value investing.

Cramer's Mad Money From the original "Booyah" man
Investorplace.com Good articles, not all advice is free. See also a related site Louis Navellier's blue chip growth
Cnbc.com Good for researching stocks.
Bloomberg's "Markets" magazine Insightful articles for download.
Free site for annual reports
The Value Line Site
Dailystocks.com All kinds of useful information here ... quotes, links to sites for information, articles, etc.

Motley Fool For an alternative perspective.
The Hedge Hog This is definitely an alternative site -- not run by 'professionals' -- check out the links page. Worth a visit.

There a number of sites associated with the rating agencies:
S and P Index Services . For a direct link to information about S&P 500 earnings and dividends see S&P and click on Index Highlights.
S and P Main Site Has ratings stuff, risk services, etc.
Moody's Main Site
Fitch Ratings
Weiss Ratings Weiss is not like the other ratings services. It is more of an investment advisor/ratings agency. Well worth a visit.
Demotech, Inc. Specializes in rating insurance companies and HMO's.
A.M. Best Another rating agency for insurance companies.
The Dow Jones Site

The ratings agency sites are not as useful as intuition might suggest. There is definitely a pay for services element to these sites.


More specialized sites:

Metal Pages This site provides information about the pricing and other aspects of metals that are not available through exchanges and other sources, e.g., rare earths. Much of the pricing information is subscriber based.
From the SEC, follow the links.
The National Venture Capital Association Primarily concerned with US venture capital firms..
Grow Think Research A market research firm that specializes in tracking and analyzing venture capital activity.
Yardeni's site This is excellent for all the macroeconomics background.
(This site is now on subscription basis, try The Conference Board for similar results).
Alpha-week Site for information on hedge funds, MARhedge absorbed into Institutional Investor, Alpha Hedge.
See also Van Hedge Fund Advisors and Magnum Funds . and Hedge Fund Research Inc.
The Hedge Fund Association An international not-for-profit association of hedge fund managers.
Managed Funds Association "The voice of the alternative investment industry"

Report of the Presidential Task Force into the Collapse of Long Term Capital Management. Lots of background material here on hedge funds. If this site is down then try looking for the report on the Treasury site or the Board of Governors site.
The Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission Deals with the causes of the crash of 2008-09.

The sites above were/are free, there are also many, many sites which have any array of subscriber/login/whatever frontends which make these sites less friendly. Here are a few which could be examined:
Quicken
Barchart A good site for inexpensive data.
Investors Intelligence

Sites for Charting and Technical Analysis
Sites for charting and technical analysis come and go, small sites get taken over or fail, larger sites change URLs or switch to a pay format. Don't be surprised if some of these links are stale. BigChart This is a charting site, not a subscribe site but has been put here because it is not as broad as some of the sites above.
BarCharts A traditional favourite.
Stock Chart Really nice looking charts.
Trade10.com This is an excellent charting service that has lots of supplementary information about technical analysis. Site has moved or failed, this link is no longer active.
The Future Source site has been taken over by ICE and is now subscription based.
See also the Yahoo2 link in the General sites.
Clearstation Possibly the best site for technical indicators for equities. This site has been taken over by e*trade and now requires an e*trade account.
A site which is unclearly titled and has an odd history is Turtle trader.com This site has nothing to do with the turtle spread trade. For this group, a turtle is a follower of a trend trader known as Richard Dennis. Turtle trading sites have a considerable following and have spawned various interesting websites such as originalturtles.org concerned with the history, description and the like for Dennis turtles.


Some Related and Useful Sites for Security Analysis Research
Deloitte and Touche site
T. Rowe Price
Public Registers Annual Report Service PRARS provides quick access to annual reports and other information.
SEDAR Great Canadian site for stock research.
EDGAR SITE This site has a friendly interface but is mostly fee-based. Much of the relevant info here can be found at other sites, e.g., the SEC site. This was once a Stern site but Edgar has moved to another place ... Edgar is excellent for getting SEC filing information.
