SAN FRANCISCO - Nov. 3, 2017 - PRLog -- Finstead, the investment research site dedicated to the small investor, today announced that it has released simple buy or sell Stock Guides targeted at individual (retail) investors. The Stock Guides are an essential read for retail investors. By consulting the guides before making investment decisions, a retail investor can get balanced views on stocks, including both arguments to buy and sell individual securities.

"There is so much financial advice out there, often a bit misleading or at least confusing," said Carla Olson, Finstead Co-Founder. "It's a difficult environment for individual investors to make sound investment decisions because there are so much noise and questionable data in financial markets. Individual investors often end up with a short end of the stick. Since no stock is a clear buy or sell, we at Finstead came up with the idea to provide more balanced guides for stocks, providing a full scoop on individual securities."

The Finstead Stock Guides were born as a reaction to a growing number of analyst reports that tout individual securities—out of over 12,000 ratings authored by equity analysts, fewer than 7 percent carry a "sell" label. Finstead buy or sell stock guides are completely free to use, and cover over 3,000 stocks, including Apple, Alphabet, Amazon, and Facebook.

Finstead Stock Guides are comprehensive. They use a combination of data analysis and Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques to come up with buy and sell signals for individual securities. "The site feeds only those (buy or sell) reasons to investors that we think are relevant in the investment decision-making process," added Olson.

Finstead ( is an investment research site that simplifies complex financial information into signals that can be more easily understood by retail investors. Finstead's goal is to arm retail investors with powerful insights so they can be better informed about investment opportunities. The company was started by finance enthusiasts who "burned" themselves investing in stocks based on buy-side analyst recommendations. The Company helps small investors, who don't invest for a living, do more thorough research before taking an action.
