The Top 21 Investment Blogs
I, like many of you, leverage the insights of investment blogs for stock ideas, book recommendations, investor interviews and general investment philosophy. This list is to say thank you to those that take the time to put pen to paper and also to provide a guide for those looking for some high quality reading.
Without further ado, here are our top investment blogs:
Not only is Aswath a Professor of Finance at the Stern School of Business at NYU, he can also wield a metaphor like no other, using unlikely scenarios to teach investing lessons. Out of all the investment blogs, his is especially worth reading for its detailed analysis of diversification, books he’s read, valuation, assessing management, break up situations, investment ideas and more.
Greg is a businessman at heart and it shows with his practical approach to investing. He’s laser-focused on beating the market, because if he can’t (as he says) he might as well buy an index. The same goes for you. That’s why he culls the best ideas from the world’s greatest investors to help you beat the market and also provides an extremely useful investment framework.
In particular, he’s got a great series with tips on how to beat the market that’s well worth a read.
3. Geoff Gannon
A prolific investment blogger, Geoff splits his writing between two main outlets: his blog and GuruFocus. In either place, he’s constantly taking the time to explain his thought process when analyzing a stock, really making each analysis a teaching moment. He also provides tutorials and answers reader questions on his investment blogs.
4. Adam Sues
A professional poker player turned value investor, Adam always provides an interesting take. For the most part, he discusses his investments or ideas he’s considering. Either way, he digs deep analyzing companies’ valuations, management performance, risks, catalysts and more.
5. Jae Jun

Richard is a UK investor and he runs a couple investment blogs. Through it, he details his purchases of what he calls the “Thrifty 30″.

Also, he’s written a strong four-part series on how to begin value investing. It’s definitely worth checking out, even if you’re a seasoned investor.

10. Joe Koster
While Joe’s blog is called Value Investing World, it definitely doesn’t seem like it. He seems to focus on culling the wisdom of famous investors through interviews and excerpts from their books, and I love it. There’s nothing better than digging into the minds of some of the greats and quite frankly, learning their key principles is useful for every investor whether or not you agree with them.
