The New Stockchase
Posted Oct 13, 2017 7:45:18 AM by Lewis

Hey Stock Chasers! 

We are happy to announce that Wealthica, a Fintech startup created by mega-successful iWeb trio, offering Canadian investors a consolidated view of their net worth, announces the acquisition of Stockchase (that's us), a popular online publication offering a quick and easy way to discover your next favorite investment stocks.

In the last days, the whole team has been working on rebranding Stockchase's image, a new logo and a new site layout.  We know that long time stock chasers might be used to the original  layout and that such changes can destabilize long time users.  We tried to keep some key elements of the old site like the search bar and the tables so you don't have a hard time finding the links you were used to.   We also tried to make good use of the homepage that was mostly a navigation page. Now you can find a short list of the latest opinions on the home page.  We went mostly with a simple white layout.  We really hope you'll like it.  We feel this design will help us make a better first impression to our new first time visitors and allow us to attrack a new generation of Stock Chasers.

We'd like to know what you think.  Whether you like it or not, we're hearing you and will consider all your comments as much as we can.

“It all started with the idea of publishing my father’s notes online. That was in 2003. We’ve been running Stockchase as a family business since then. We never thought so many people would be interested in following us.” said Stockchase co-founder Chris Bruner. 

“We are happy it has been acquired by a team of talented app developers. Stockchase’s community will benefit from future site enhancements and integrations between the content site and Wealthica.”  he added.

With more than 500,000 page views per month, Stockchase is among the top Canadian personal finance web sites.

“We were surprised by the assiduity of the Stockchase community that have been coming back to the site steadily since many years. We look forward to pursuing the Bruner's tradition of providing stock opinions and enhance it with app integrations, more content and new features. We now have 150,000 monthly visitors to showcase our apps to and firmly believe Stockchase will be key in our quest to give investors the true picture of their investment portfolio.” said Wealthica’s CEO Simon Boulet.

Many enhancements and more content will be coming to Stockchase in the near future.

Junk Mail
Posted Feb 23, 2017 1:04:37 PM by chris

Apparently Microsoft watches what you mark as junk, and what you just delete.  If you use outlook or hotmail and are marking your StockChase emails as junk, Microsoft will start rejecting them on your behalf. (Isn't that nice of them). This of course makes extra work for me when people start complaining that they aren't receiving their emails. 

I've recently had the pleasure of letting Microsoft know that all of our emails are opt-in and not junk, and they have informed me that they have unblocked our ip address.  Should take effect in a day or two. In the meantime if you find you aren't receiving emails from StockChase and you use outlook or hotmail check Microsoft's support

I assume the same goes for gmail, but I haven't had any complaints about that.

We've also been having troubles with sending emails, we have a lot of people who like to see the top picks in their inbox.  So many in fact that we have been crashing our server! I've done some changes to slow the process down and I think things are resolved for now.

Also if you find you don't want emails, you can either log in and opt out, or just click the link at the bottom of the email and unsubscribe. This is a service for you, we actually don't get anything out of it, so you won't hurt our feelings if you unsubscribe. :)

If you have problems you can always email me at the link at the bottom of this page and I'll help out.

Greetings

A lot of new users coming to our site. http://www.stockchase.com

I don't know how familiar you are with our site, so I'll explain it a bit to you. We watch Market Call and Market Call Tonight and take down the comments about stocks, from the experts that appear on those shows. We put these comments into a database, which can be accessed by the web cross referencing stocks with experts and back. We also have a field that says what the comment action was (buy,sell, top pick etc). Users of our site can select stocks they are interested in, and when a comment is made about their stock, an email is sent out. Users can also get Top Picks sent out through email. These emails are of course opt in.

Use this site as a reference, to explore and gain new ideas. I use the site myself to see new stock ideas, then check with other experts to what they've said about the stock. In general I'm up, way more then I'm down using this strategy. This year has been especially good. If you like the site, please share this post with your friends, knowledge is a good thing.
