Find an Investment Club
For a long time our advice to novice investors has been to join an investment club. It’s a good way to learn the ropes and share the large amount of homework involved in successful long-term investing. The Web has made it possible for groups to form online bringing clubs within the reach of investors everywhere. Sadly, we have read of at least one online scam which billed itself as a club but was really one individual stealing investors’ money. So we still recommend joining a club – but check out the group carefully.

Gerlach ‘s I-Club Central Between them, the National Association of Investors Corporation and NAIC member Douglas Gerlach cover a wealth of sensible advice and information for the individual wishing to become his owns security analyst. These sites also present information on how to start an investment club. The NAIC has financial analysis software and a database of the type of companies a club or individual will be interested in investing in.

- Invest-FAQ Not an investment club but useful for a beginning investor. You can spend hours reading at this site. You can read on a specific subject or use it as a textbook. In reality, it is a very comprehensive online “book” on the subject of investing. The advantage of an online book is, of course, that it can be changed as circumstances change and it has links for additional reading.
