Download. Open. Go to safari and open Morningstar and go to research stock sectors. Now switch from safari to Seeking Alpha App...both safari and the app will restart each time you switch, making it impossible to add more than one stock at a time to your Alpha portfolio. Hackers.
The information housed within Seeking Alpha is good, but the pricing of the product does not jive with the offering because few recommendations actually come with actionable strategies, other than buy the stock. Investors and traders today are looking for actionable strategies that include timing. This type of framework provides investors/traders with ideas that are also linked to options trading, which would enhance the value of the offering, thereby causing less heartburn about the price.
As a lay investor and non-financial genius, I rely on well-written analyses of companies I’m preparing to invest in. Seeking Alpha has often provided this but I also rely on the commentary provided by SA members who flesh out the pros/cons of a holding I’m considering (mgmt, competitors, macro issues, product pipeline). SA is very unique in this regard.
Assessment of enterprise is done with proper analysis and reseat behind makes it valuable information.
Very Buggy App
Seeking Alpha will not be recognize I’m a paying member and I cannot load the phone app consistently. App shows a white screen with an hourglass most of the time and I give it minutes to load. I already contacted SA and Apple. Tried deleting my membership and reapply and still issues. Please fix for us. IOS update users are experiencing this!
Needs dark mode
Most articles are lacking in substance and written by people who lack knowledge of the nuances in market segments they write about. For instance they have people writing about retail that do not understand the significance of ‘same store sales’, authors that write about the E&P space and have no concept of FV10, those that contribute one sided self serving articles, or others that don’t understand that significance of cash flow when lenders assess creditworthiness and erroneously focus to much on GAAP income to pronounce to the world that company A can’t possibly refinance their debt. Probably 3/4 to 4/5 of the authors do not know what they’re talking about or have an agenda. On top of this, if you write comments that are critical, but important for readers to understand, your comment gets either edited or broomed entirely. I think overall, if you are using this for anything other than getting stock quotes and looking at the news feed, you are better off without this app.
A Best in Class!!
Offered me a free trial, so I subscribed but they charged me for the whole year.
