  1. OpenInsider is an SEC Form 4 insider screener that allows you to monitor the insider trading filings for insider buying and selling.

    Open Insider - I think a lot of people know about this one. Basically just compiles every Form 4 for every public company. All insider buys/sells as they are reported. I had used a couple different websites prior to hearing about Open Insider, but I exclusively use this one now. It's the best that I've seen for insider trading information.
  2. At Yahoo Finance, you get free stock quotes, up-to-date news, portfolio management resources, international market data, social interaction and mortgage rates that help you manage your financial life.

    Yahoo Finance - Basic stock/ETF information, financials going a few years back, historic performance, dividend and split history available on the chart.
  3. Prepend to the URL of any paywalled page, and we'll try our best to remove the paywall and get you access to the article.

    12ft Ladder - Removes MOST paywalls. If you have a website where there's a paywall to read an article you saw, copy the entire URL and paste it into this website. This website is why I don't pay for stock research.
