Magazines & Newspapers

Teenvestors should read business magazines and newspapers available in the market. Fortunately, 13- year olds can read and understand most general business publications. We even know an 11-year old who reads The Wall Street Journal on a regular basis.

In our opinion, The Wall Street Journal should be required reading for every Teenvestor. Find a copy and, at the very least, just stare at the front page -- you are sure to absorb something from this great publication. In addition, high-quality business magazines such as ForbesFortune, and Business Week sometimes do long articles on big companies. These publications can often save Teenvestors lots of time because they publish detailed up-to-date articles on some of the biggest companies in the United States. The important business magazines can be found in most libraries, in newspaper stands and on the Internet.

Reading business publications will get you thinking like investors and may also give you good ideas about the type of companies are available for your investment portfolio. Here is a list of some of our favorite business publications:

Online Resources

In addition to the publications in the table above that have websites, there are lots of other online sources for business information. The problem is that there are so many of them, most beginning Teenvestors get confused as to which ones to use consistently. The websites in the table below ae the sites we use most often. They are all free although one or two (the New York Times, for example) may require that you register before accessing their information.
