VF in the news

Online Investment Clubs - among them, Value Forum stands out

Among online investment clubs, 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 547 members (7 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.

Random member testimonial:
       "I absolutely LOVE ValueForum, and consider this site the most important tool I have for investing and/or trading because of the incredible information at just one site. I have learned so much from reading messages posted here that I recommend to the new comer to select an area of investing that is of interest and then read those posts starting with most current. I am sure you will gain information and learn techniques that can be applied to other areas/sectors of investing. This is an 'Invaluable' forum."

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 ability to permanently block Terms of Use abusers 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 investment clubs 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 offer; a 3-Month pass may be purchased for $99.99; a 6-Month pass may be purchased for $169.99, and a 12-Month pass may be purchased for $299.99. Your purchase may be tax-deductible as an investment expense -- always consult your accountant for tax-related questions.

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.

To take a tour of VF and what our online investment club has to offer, feel free to take the VF walkthrough. Also, read through "Guidance & Testimonial" messages from existing club members, with helpful information you should know as a new member.
