SF columnist likes BusinessWeek's web site
Harry Domash, who writes a column for the San Francisco Chronicle, discussed good web sites for investors to get information in his Sunday column. One site he likes is BusinessWeek.
Domash wrote, “The business magazine’s site has been doing a good job for so long that I often forget to mention it. Because BusinessWeek and Standard & Poor’s, the stock and bond rating company, are both owned by McGraw Hill, it’s no surprise that Standard & Poor’s contributes most of BusinessWeek’s content on investing. There’s so much there that I only have room to cover the highlights.
“The best way to access most of the features I’m about to describe is to select Investing Columns under Investing on BusinessWeek’s home page (www.businessweek.com). BusinessWeek maintains archives going back months, and sometimes years, depending on the feature. While you can download the current version of these features from other pages, the Investing Columns path is the only way I’ve found to access the archives.
“‘Picks & Pans’ features S&P analyst comments on stocks the analysts cover that made news that day. The single-paragraph commentary relates the news, the analyst’s take on the news and any resulting changes in the analyst’s buy/sell rating. It’s an interesting read, and you can browse through the archives going back three or four months.
“‘Focus Stock of the Week’ features a detailed analysis of one of S&P’s five-star rated (highest rating) companies. The analysis is lengthy but easy to read. S&P describes the company’s business, its competitive advantages, and why S&P thinks the stock is going up from here without burdening you with detailed statistics and financial statement calculations.”
