Welcome to the premier private stock market message board site: ValueForum.com
With a current count of 576 members (3 members online right now), Value Forum -- or
"VF" for short -- is the premier stock market message board discussion and collaboration community for serious value
and income investors focused on the stock market.
With over 125 stock market message board 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,
membership at VF lets you tap into a stream of stock market investment ideas
and message board discussions from extraordinarily sharp individual investors just like yourself, and test your own ideas
against peer review by the community.
Unlike the large free public stock market message board sites, at Value Forum we verify the true identity of each paying
running their credit card. This means
from the community, and true ability to enforce our "no-alias policy" -- at ValueForum you'll never have to wonder
whether you are talking about the stock market with multiple people on the message boards or instead with various aliases of
person. By contrast,
at free public stock market message board 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 the site running for years to come,
every page of our site is designed and maintained with our members in mind and what is most convenient to them,
as opposed to advertiser-supported sites 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 members and are
constantly adding and improving site features to maximize member satisfaction, creating new stock market topics on the message
boards when requested, and are always available to talk with members. Plus, you'll benefit from offers and
discounts we negotiate on behalf of the community.
As a private stock market message board site for stock picking and discussion in a community setting,
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 onto other stock market message board sites (violators forfeit membership - you don't want your
stock market ideas leaving the message board audience you intended, and
other members expect the same).
Full messages and stock ratings are readable by 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 stock
market message board sites
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 start reading and posting to the stock market message boards? 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 on all of the stock market message board areas.
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
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 on the stock market message boards in the discussion
to get a sense of the topics currently under discussion and which stock market message boards are the most active, 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.
