PLEASE READ: Guidelines for posting in the investing forum

We have now opened up a dedicated section for everyone to discuss investing, including individual stocks/ETFs/bonds/etc. The vibrant community within the Personal Finance section sees participation from everyone ranging from daytraders to users who have never bought stock before. This new forum will allow users to discuss the financials of publicly-traded companies among RedFlagDeals.com peers.

To help keep the forum consistent and easier to read, please follow these simple guidelines when posting about individual stocks/ETFs/bonds:
  • Before posting a new thread, please search to see if there is an existing thread about the stock. The intention is to have one thread per stock
  • Please keep titles consistent. Titles should follow this format: [Company Name] (Ticker symbols). Always list the Canadian exchange's ticker symbol first. For example: Research In Motion Limited (RIM, RIMM)
Please note:
This webpage and discussion forum is provided for discussion purposes only and nothing contained in the material constitutes a recommendation for the purchase or sale of any security. We do not guarantee the accuracy of any statements or information. Any person considering an investment should seek independent advice on the suitability or otherwise of the particular investment.

How about a ban on discussing/posting any non-public information?

Is it? But certainly RFD is a place where a lot of rank-and-file employees of publicly traded companies hang out. Comments like, "I work for RIMM and the warehouses are stacked to the ceiling with unsold Blackberries" may not be illegal "insider" information, but definitely not public information unless specifically disclosed.

Can we start threads to talk about a sector? i.e. Oil & Gas sector, gold sector, etc
Makes it easier to discuss relative value within an industry group :)
:idea: :) :lol: :razz: :D

The investing forum isn't ONLY specific stocks - but when those do happen, we want to keep it consistent

Naturally there will be discussions about sectors, investing more generally, brokerages, etc.

Shouldn't this be a sticky? I have noticed it floating down and down...
To be nobody but yourself - in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else - means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting. -- E. E. Cummings

Where is the guideline on stock tips? That used to be an old rule but should have disappeared as part of the new Investing forum. While we won't encourage or agree/disagree with any stock "tips"/opinions, it is simply an individual's opinion and everyone should seek independent advice for their own particular needs or situation

If you go to the main forum listing it is noted under the description for the Personal Finance forum:

Personal Finance Visit this forum to discuss mortgages, loans, money saving tips, taxes, and more! (No stock tips allowed)!

do you know what happened to the Greece thread? it followed the rules, focused on Greek related stocks and their impact on North America's market.

it had some very valuable information for everyone and many posts, but is gone right when Greece might be kicked out or worked out today.
