With a current count of 612 members (20 members online right now),
"VF" is the premier online investment discussion and collaboration community for serious value and income investors.
With over 125 discussion topics, a stock ratings system with over 1000 rated stocks, quarterly and year-long stock picking
contests, group polls, shared portfolios, a group calendar system, and other online collaboration tools,
membership at VF lets you tap into a stream of investment ideas
and discussions from extraordinarily sharp individual investors just like yourself, and test your own ideas against peer
review by the community.
Unlike the large free public investment sites, ValueForum.com verifies the true identity of each paying member by running
their credit card. This means
from the community, and true ability to enforce our "no-alias policy" -- at ValueForum you'll never have to wonder
whether you are talking to various aliases of the same person. By contrast, at free public sites that require merely a
working email address to join, it can be impossible to stop the same person from establishing multiple accounts and using
those extra accounts for nefarious purposes.
Because ValueForum is supported by revenues from membership fees, not only can you rest assured that
our company will keep the site running for years to come,
every page of our site is designed and maintained with
members in mind and what is most convenient to them, as opposed to advertiser-supported sites focused primarily on generating
the most page views, optimizing their pages for advertisements instead of content, and squeezing as much ad revenue from each
page as possible even if that means big annoying flashing banners. At ValueForum, we listen to our members and are constantly
adding and improving site features to maximize member satisfaction. Plus, you'll benefit from offers and
discounts we negotiate on behalf of the community.
As a private stock picking community, ValueForum members collaborate only with one another, not the entire public,
and members are not permitted to redistribute (copy/paste etc.) the work of other members
outside of the VF community (violators forfeit
Full messages and stock ratings are readable by members-only, creating an environment that encourages discussion and debate
and discourages those seeking to "pump," "bash," or "spam"
(at VF, such bad behavior forfeits membership). The "riff-raff" are instead attracted to free public sites
that provide the largest possible public
audience (an audience which includes search engines that crawl, index, and store pages). At ValueForum, non-member
visitors, including search engines, are not permitted to
read full messages or stock
ratings. "What gets posted to ValueForum stays on ValueForum."
As a guest, you may only access the ''headlines'' to each post designated ''members only'', but may not view the full
text of a post. Messages are also posted privately between smaller
groups of members. When you
