be part of a community

It’s been a long time since there was a magazine for active investors. Join us over at Reddit.


To celebrate our 25th anniversary online, we sat down with fellow investor and author Leslie N. Masonson for A Conversation with Teresa Lo. The interview is featured in the December 2023 issue of Technical Analysis of Stocks & Commodities magazine.

Why create an online magazine?

I am nostalgic for a time when investing was more fun, when finding useful information was a lot easier.

Why publish over at Reddit?

The platform provides readers with the opportunity to build and participate in a community.

What topics do you write about?

The goal is to demystify and to provide a professional perspective on any subject of interest to the community. Just AMA!

When will you offer subscriptions or memberships?

Soon. Please follow us on Reddit for access to a free model investment portfolio that’s probably outperformed most advisors and target date funds.

How it is possible for an individual to improve upon managing a portfolio, trading methods and stock picking when there are so many people working on Wall Street?

The answer is deceptively simple. First, there is no need for a hundred people to “brainstorm” for ideas. Ultimately, a first-principles thinker with their own money on the line is better able to find solutions to a small set of problems and to execute them well. Second, advisors generate portfolios with software based on models and assumptions from the 1950s. Nothing has changed in decades. The industry is focused on sales in order to gather assets and to collect management fees for the firm.
