A couple of weeks ago I was offered the chance to have a free account to a news service called TheFlyOnTheWall.
Part of the job of managing money, your own or someone else's, is to keep tabs on news about your stocks. The service is similar to Briefing.com but is pushed to your desktop dynamically so that you don't need to seek out the content.
You can customize the feed to only look for certain stocks that you care about or have all the headlines included which I prefer in order to see names I haven't heard of before.
The content includes upgrades/downgrades, general news, rumors, MSM news, and options data.
So far it has turned out to be a huge time saver because I can just leave the window open and check it periodically.
The company does offer a free trial that is worth checking out.
The only thing to disclose is the one-year free subscription they are not paying me.
