Pay for Seeking Alpha? - Kerim - 10-19-2018

Anyone pay for Seeking Alpha? $20 per month feels pretty steep to me, but there is a lot of good content...

Nope, I never get to the end of reading the free stuff.  Good reads on the site but many have a slanted agenda like anywhere else financial I suppose.

I don't see the need for myself at this time. My portfolio is just about where I want it. The changes around the edges I can pretty much value myself. Once I retire in around 5 years and my 401(k) is available to for redistribution into my IRA, I may consider it to quickly get the money invested at values I find appealing.

For anyone who has a large sum now or who doesn't feel totally confident on finding companies at an acceptable value should consider it if they have the funds available.

No, not really, even though I do like SA a lot. I do follow certain contributors and even a couple of posters--but paying $20 per month is not going to put an extra $80-100 a month in my pocket. SA to me, is a form of beneficial financial entertainment that I enjoy reading but not willing to shell out a monthly subscription fee.

Nope. I try to rely on my own thinking and I can get all the research/opinions I need for free.

Well, I have noticed that more and more articles are being locked out from non-paying viewership.

It will cost them if they go too far.  Some days the place reminds me of CNBC and their cast of 1000 talking heads.  You can find somebody that agrees with you if you try.  I really like the place but you have to be able to figure out who is overly biased on a particular stock.
