Youtube, the stock advice portal?

Posted by: Aaron Pressman on September 20, 2006

Jason Coleman over at Investorgeeks.com has his eyes on a new trend of possible interest to investors. He’s found some examples of financial analysts uploading stock reviews as video clips on Youtube, the hosting company more famous for carrying clips of old game shows and wacky Coke and Mentos stunts.

If there is an audience for this sort of thing, it’s yet another example of disintermediation. Big brokerage firms and TV networks are the main distributors of financial reports but stock analysis on Youtube can obviously reach a huge audience at no cost to the authors or analysts. Can’t get booked on CNBC? Upload your analysis. If you’re on target, after a while people are going to notice.

Update: Howard Lindzon, a hedge fund manager in Phoenix, is putting together a Web-based “show” featuring video blogs about the markets. Called Wallstrip.com, it goes live next month.
