Back in July 2006, I wrote a post about the stock market 2.0 opportunity . I was mostly right. The only thing that has changed is that I am now off Yahoo Finance for the most part and rely on Google Finance for quotes and stock information. Google Finance is good and I am not just saying that because Wallstrip videos are always showing up.
Flash forward a year and change and nobody has claimed any new leadership role (please don’t ping me with page view crap…all that means is revenue and bulk). That seems like a lifetime of non eventage in internet time.
I have liked Google Finance from day one and thought they were on to something big. It seems no one else does .
That’s a shame because for 99 percent of the investing market, Google Finance is more than enough information, displayed in a good enough way.
Amazing that with all the smart minds in this space, nobody has gotten it quite right, BUT THEY WILL! To those victors comes $100’s of millions in spoils.
I will continue to make bets in this space.
