Individual Investor Magazine

The July 1998 issue of Individual Investor Magazine included a five paragraph review of Investor Home. The following are some excerpts from the the article titled "One-Stop Shops" by Wayne Harris (author of Cybertools for Business).
The motto of Investor Home ( could be "as deep as you care to go." The site's welcome page is the equivalent of a military command center. All the investment dials and gauges, all the weapons you need, are arranged in front of you, starting with more than 60 links to leading investment sites . . . Row one offers market information, quotes, and charts for stocks, bonds, gold, and you-name-it. Row two connects with online investment publications. Rows three to six? Links to other sites, including Yahoo!, Microsoft Investor, and Silicon Investor; online brokers; a potpourri of recommended books on investing; market-sentiment surveys; financial calculators; and investment gallows humor. Next you'll find charting tools, and one of the most powerful stock and fund-specific information gatherers on the web. Typing in a mutual fund or stock symbol produces an almost mind-boggling set of links to quotes, charts, company news, fundamental research, SEC documents, and historical price data, among other things . . . But what sets Investor Home apart is its original content . . . anyone truly interested in understanding the risks and rewards in today's market should bookmark this site first.

The October 1997 issue of Individual Investor Magazine included the following in their FYI section.
"Whether you're searching for a step-by-step guide to financial planning, or the right questions to ask a prospective financial advisor, or for links to the Web pages of such financial gurus as Microsoft chairman Bill Gates or the Nobel laureate William F. Sharpe, you're likely to find it at Investor Home ( . . . comprehensive list of links will send you ping-ponging around the web to the best parts of some of the most useful sites for investors."

San Francisco Examiner

The Sunday 2/22/98 issue of the San Francisco Examiner included the following in an article by Eric Tyson (author of Investing For Dummies, Personal Finance For Dummies and several other "For Dummies" books) titled "Web investing books provide limited help."
"Those who want to learn more about how to use the Internet as a personal investor's resource should look at the Web site Investor Home ( . . . the site is the most authoritative guide to the best and most popular Internet investing sites I've seen . . . Investor Home, which has won numerous awards, does an outstanding job of screening out the bad Internet investing sites."

Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine

The February 1998 issue of Kiplinger's included the following under the title "A Site Made in 'What-If' Heaven."
"For a real bonanza of financial calculators, visit on the World Wide Web. There you will find almost 100 calculators, including more than a dozen for retirement-planning issues. The calculators are part of the Investor Home site (, a well-organized offering of helpful financial and investment information."

I always look for those that try and teach investors more about investing, and this is a pretty good one.

Its called Investor Home
(with big screen scrolling the site in the background).

Its a full service site for investors full of links to other sites, a search engine to get you information about individual stocks and mutual funds, things like that.

When you get to the home page though, click on the tests button. You find out how much you know about investing and saving for retirement. There are a number of quizzes on investing, on mutual funds, on saving for retirement. They’re from The Vanguard Group, PaineWebber, T. Rowe Price, and others. Its really great stuff.

There are also a number of sample questions from the very difficult and comprehensive Chartered Financial Analyst exam. Those of you looking to get into the business and don’t know how to start - take a look at this site. See if you can answer some of these questions and maybe it’d give you a good idea whether you have the aptitude for getting into this business or not.

The web site address again is and look for that tests button on there.

Happy surfing.
