There are many sources for financial news. From newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, to online outlets, Drudge Report and Yahoo! Finance.
But, in my opinion, few do a better job than the weekly journal strictly dedicated to all things business and finance, Barron's.
Barron's is essentially CNBC in paper form (with an online edition available.) From a deep roster of contributors ranging from highly regarded investors, hedge fund managers, CEO's and CFO's, each week the journal outlines market trends, upcoming events such as summits, earnings reports, IPO's, Fed meetings etc.
Barron's is dense. Detailed are sections focusing on bonds, ETF's, options, emerging markets, commodities and mutual funds to name a few. Overall, this is a business journal, not as much a personal financial advice periodical. Enter Barron's NEXT.
Barron's NEXT is, in their words, "for a new generation of investors." The topics are similar to the main journal, however, differ slightly as articles are curtailed for the millennial generation, as seen below in snips from this week's edition.
From digging your way out of student debt, to promoting your brand or entrepreneurial idea to learning the basics of investing in the stock and bond market, Barron's NEXT is laying out tips and tricks to help you wade into these topics with ease.
Barron's NEXT is not a publication, but strictly an online site. Bookmark and click in while you're having your morning cup of joe to learn something new for the workday. If you like what you see, subscribe to Barron's magazine.
Who knows. You could be the next Mario Gabelli.
