"Wikinvest, which recently licensed some content to the Web sites of USA Today and Forbes, seeks to be an alternative to Web portals that are little more than “a data dump” of income statements and government filings...Users annotate stock charts with notes explaining peaks and valleys, edit company profiles and opine about whether to buy or sell. The site is creating a wire service with articles from finance blogs and building a cheat sheet to guide readers through financial filings by defining terms and comparing a company’s performance to competitors’."
"Wikinvest's entries are penned by a broad range of investors who layer their own research on top of each other. Each entry, on a stock or a theme, includes separate pages for bullish, bearish and neutral commentary so that investors better understand a company or investment idea. Annotated charts, meanwhile, offer explanations for big moves in share prices."
"The design is excellent, as is the ease of use. There are already quite comprehensive entries on a number of topics, including subprime lending and Rock Bank vs. Guitar Hero. This latter entry provides a compelling example of the attractiveness of alternative research sites like Wikinvest - FT Alphaville hasn't seen any broker notes recently that highlight the companies benefiting from the success of these titles..."
"Wikinvest does a good job of providing business focused company profiles, which include market information and product histories...They also have a very novel feature, WikiCharts, which let users explain trends across real-time share price graphs through embedded comments."
"The site is constantly updated with new user information and new stock quotes, so it should prove an incredibly useful tool for those of us not strong enough to weather a Jim Cramer rant daily. My favorite part of the site is a section called Concepts, where users can list a company or product (for example, the iPhone) that may affect the future of other companies."
"Wikinvest adds information you need to understand a company's business and future prospects."
"...promising to be a constantly updated resource that reflects more than just a single expert's opinion of a certain company..."
"Not only can you browse stocks by company, but you can also search the site by investing concept. For example, there is information about subprime lending, aging baby boomers, carbon trading and many other subjects. Active contributors are highlighted on the site, so you may find yourself tracking posts made by particular individuals who share the same investing philosophy as you."
