Best Value Investing RSS Feeds for 2015

RSS FeedThe best value investing RSS feeds of 2015 can really make life easier on investors. That’s why I’ve decided to share my favourite RSS feeds from around the financial web this year.

But first, you might be wondering…

“Why Should I Worry About Value Investing RSS Feeds?”

Call me old fashioned. But RSS feeds are a fantastic way to keep up with the news. They tune out the signal and turn up the noise. In the frenetic world of the financial news media, the focus of RSS feeds is even more important. They’re the perfect way to consistently keep up with the trusted voices that matter… without getting distracted by the Business Insider headline du-jour.

By the way, if you don’t have an RSS feed set up, what are you waiting for? It’s free to get started and will almost certainly improve the efficiency of your digital information intake. So just head over to Feedly.com and create an account. It’s free and will pay investing-knowledge dividends for years to come.

Now without further ado… and presented in alphabetical order…

The Best Feee Value Investing RSS Feeds Online in 2015:

Aleph Blog: David Merkel is one the most rational and intelligent value investing voices on the web today. I highly encourage you to subscribe to his thoughts,  catch up with some of his investing rules and get lost in his other timeless value investing wisdom.

Crossing Wall Street: Eddy Elfenbein at Crossing Wall Street might be the funniest value investor blogging their way through 2015. I love reading his insightful posts. And I usually come away smiling. But jokes aside, his blog (and particularly his buy-list) are great places to find high quality stock ideas.

Dash of Insight: Jeff Miller’s value investing blogs is one of the newer additions to my RSS feeds. I discovered him on Seeking Alpha one day, and have been hooked ever since. His weekly market outlooks are incredibly helpful in understanding how longer-term value investors interpret the daily news flow and economic calendar.

Enterprising Investor: This CFA Institute blog always has a wide variety of educational and insightful value investors writing for it each day. You can be sure to find consistently high quality value investing content covering all kinds of topics on this RSS feed.

Investing Caffeine: I discovered this value investing blog at ValueWalk (see below). And I’m glad I did. You can expect to get once-a-week updates about what’s on the mind of value investors and long-term thinkers. I always find these value investing updates to be poignant and enjoyable to read. Check ’em out for yourself.

ValueWalk: This is probably the best value investing news site around. To be honest, I can’t keep up with all the content that’s published each day. But whenever I have a few minutes of downtime with my phone I check out this feed. From interviews with epic value investors to in-depth analysis and stock picks this website has everything you need for value investing in 2015.

To access the RSS feeds above, just type the names (or paste the URLs) of the blogs above into your Feedly search bar.

The value investing RSS feeds above are incredibly helpful for keeping up with the value investing news of 2015.  But if you’re still hungry for more information: Check out the best value investing blogs and the best value investing books.

If you’ve checked out the stock ideas book reviews, then you know I’m a big fan of Mohnish Pabrai and Guy Spier.
