Seriously are they providing Free Stock Recommendation?
In the FAQ section it is mentioned “Just like Yahoo! Finance, Google Finance, Reuters.com, Motley Fool, and other similar sites, we don’t tell you what to buy, what to sell. We don’t make recommendations.”
The Disclaimer at the bottom of the screen says “Stockflare provides information, not advice. Stockflare does not make recommendations. Any reference to “Buy”, “Sell”, “Hold”, or “Price Targets” for stocks, reflect the views of the “Wall Street” consensus.”
Whats my take?
Overall interesting Stock analytic & screening tool for beginners and value investors to do first level of screening to stick with quality stocks.
