MarketWatch’s Six Wall Street Blogs You Should Be Reading


A couple of years back, I was added to a WSJ list of top bloggers and it set me off upon the greatest adventure of my lifetime, a journey I’m still on. Then there was one time when I didn’t make a similar list and I threw a temper tantrum. But Howard Lindzon schooled me. He said that it’s never about just being on a list, it’s about being on a list where you respect the other people that really matters.

And so in this case, I am absurdly grateful to Jon Friedman, the media columnist at MarketWatch. for naming me to his.  Because this particular list is as good as it gets, I am friendly with/envious of all the other bloggers on it and proud to be listed alongside them…

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) — Meet six of the most influential bloggers on the Wall Street scene.

They consistently go beyond what the traditional media have always done: report the news. Unlike journalists who remain a step removed from the subjects they report on, these bloggers possess a keen understanding of what market enthusiasts want to read, often thanks to their participation in the market. And their Twitter feeds have made them more influential, allowing readers to stay on top of their every publishable thought.

They can generate thought-provoking content that moves the financial markets. They also have an impact on the thinking of investors on Wall Street and Main Street.

Why this group? I have selected these bloggers not only because I personally think they add something original to the conversation either by being analytical, forward-thinking or downright witty. You seem to agree with me. Having a clear, original, daring point of view is what helps a writer today cut through the millions of offerings on the Internet. These folks possess those qualities. This is what helps make them influential.

They aren’t like everyone else. Each has a distinct voice and persona.

They are making the grade. Joshua Brown said his Reformed Broker blog boasted 250,000 visits last month. Cullen Roche, who presides over Pragmatic Capitalism, generally amasses 750,000 page views a month, he said. Bess Levin’s entertaining Dealbreaker items attract more than 400,000 unique users per month, she said.

By any measure, these bloggers are putting their stamps on the conversations of shareholders.
