It’s official: Wealthica has acquired Stockchase, an established online community for DIY investors. There is a wealth of information collected on the site from investment experts; many years of comments have been captured and are easily accessible. The team at Wealthica has worked hard to modernize the site and improve the overall user experience.
Today stockchase.com averages about 500,000 page views and 150,000 users per month.
Now let’s explore what Stockchase is all about and what it can do for you.
Stockchase compiles comments about companies listed on the stock market made by experts on financial TV shows such as BNN. The stocks comments and opinions can be cross referenced by experts or specific companies. This makes it easy to get an overview of how experts feel about a particular stock, or if you like a given expert, to see what other stocks she or he has been referring to.
Stockchase was born in Ontario, Canada in 2000. Bill Bruner, co-founder, had a habit of watching stock opinion shows and taking notes on what was said. His son, Chris, had an idea: publishing his father’s notes online. That’s pretty much how stockchase.com got started.
The Bruners independently ran the site for about 17 years, working hard, building a strong community of passionate investors. Up to this day, Bill still contributes towards the transcription of experts’ opinions; another notable contributor being Dave Martin.
