Online Investment Clubs - among them, Value Forum stands out
Among online investment clubs, ValueForum.com stands out by offering a private, exclusive stock picking environment, with
unique tools to promote collaboration and due diligence, peer review and debate.
With a current count of 735 members (8 investment club members online right now), Value
Forum -- or "VF" for short -- is the premier private online investment club for serious value and
income investors located around the world. With over 125 discussion forum topics, a stock
ratings system with over 1000 rated stocks, quarterly and year-long stock picking contests, group polls,
shared portfolios, a group calendar system, and other online collaboration tools specificially designed with our online
investment club in mind, membership at VF lets you tap into a stream of stock picking ideas, trading strategies, portfolio
management ideas, etc., from extraordinarily sharp individuals just like yourself, and test your own strategies and
ideas against peer review by the community.
Unlike the large free public online investment clubs, at Value Forum we verify the true identity of each paying member by
running their credit card. This means each club member has true and full accountability for their actions, we have true
from the online investment club, and true ability to enforce our "no-alias policy" -- at ValueForum you'll never
have to wonder whether you are talking with multiple club members or with various aliases of the same person. By contrast,
at free public online investment club sites that require merely a
working email address to join, it can be impossible to stop the same person from establishing multiple accounts and using
those extra accounts for nefarious purposes.
Because Value Forum is supported by revenues from membership fees, not only can you rest assured that
our company will keep this online investment club affectionately known by our club
members as "VF" running for years to come, but also that
every page of our site is designed and maintained with our online investment club members in mind and what is most convenient
to them, as opposed to advertiser-supported online investment clubs focused primarily on generating
the most page views, optimizing their pages for advertisements instead of content, and squeezing as much ad revenue from each
page as possible even if that means big annoying flashing banners. At Value Forum, we listen to our club members and are
constantly adding and improving site features to maximize member satisfaction,
and are always available to talk with our online investment club members. Plus, you'll benefit from offers and
discounts we negotiate on behalf of the community.
As a private online investment club, ValueForum members
collaborate only with one
another, not the entire public, and members are not permitted to redistribute (copy/paste etc.) the work of other members
outside of the VF community (violators forfeit membership - you don't want your ideas leaving the online investment club, and
other members expect the same).
Full messages and stock ratings are readable by online investment club members-only, creating an environment that encourages
discussion and debate
and discourages those seeking to "pump," "bash," or "spam"
(at VF, such bad behavior forfeits membership). The "riff-raff" are instead attracted to free public online
that provide the largest possible public
audience (an audience which includes search engines that crawl, index, and store pages). At Value Forum, non-member
visitors, including search engines, are not permitted to
read full messages or stock ratings. "What gets posted to ValueForum stays on ValueForum."
As a guest, you may only access the ''headlines'' to each post designated ''members only'', but may not view the full
text of a post. Messages are also posted privately between smaller
groups of members. Can't wait to join our online investment club? When you
Join ValueForum ($$) now and pay securely by credit card, you are granted full member
access to read ''members only'' posts, and send and receive private messages.
A 24-Hour Trial pass may be purchased for $5.99 to sample what ValueForum has to

6-Month pass may be purchased for $169.99, and a 12-Month pass may be purchased for

As a guest, feel free to read the message headlines in the online investment club's discussion forum
to get a sense of the topics currently under discussion by the club, view the group polls (although poll results are visible to members only), and see what stocks the members have rated
strong buy - strong sell in the Stock Ratings area.
