InvestorPlace Media — publisher of InvestorPlace.com, a leading financial news and investing website — has launched The Slant. The multimedia website is a free resource for stock market advice that is intended to be an information filter for individual investors.
“The Slant is really not a news site,” said Jeff Reeves, editor of InvestorPlace.com and the author behind The Slant. “There are enough places where investors can get a laundry list of earnings reports or 52-week highs. What I’m trying to do is point out the headlines that matter and, more importantly, what they really mean for investors. Then I engage with readers and talk to Wall Street experts about the best actions to take to protect your money and to profit.”
The website is updated daily with articles, videos and podcasts. The Slant podcast is available for free download from the Apple iTunes store.
In addition to bringing investors timely, actionable information in multiple formats, Reeves points out that another of the website’s strengths is that it draws from multiple points of view.
“Investors are worried and distrustful of the markets,” said Reeves. “I try to find as many intelligent points of view as I can on the topics that matter, even if those points of view are at odds with each other. Even Warren Buffett isn’t perfect. It’s best that investors have all sides of the story so they can make an informed decision once they have the facts.”
A former New York Times Co. editor with 10 years of newsroom experience, Reeves is an avid investor who manages his own money. He has interviewed top CEOs and politicians and is also the former managing editor of Louis Navellier’s award-winning investing newsletters, Blue Chip Growth and Emerging Growth.
