AAII: American Association of Individual Investors - Investing Resource Review

American Association of Individual Investors (AAII)


The American Association of Individual Investors (AAII) is one of the best resources for a new investor. Reasonably priced yet comprehensive in coverage, AAII.Com is all about educating new investors. AAII is simply one of the best values out there.

A one year subscription to AAII costs a paltry $29.00. I say paltry because for $29.00 one receives quality information that could easily cost much more. A year's subscription entitles one to 12 issues of the AAII Journal both print and online. In addition, there are numerous resources on how to build a portfolio and how to invest in stocks. As an example here is a recent article on how to trace a firm's cash flow.

Perhaps the best part of AAII is the Stock Screen section. Every month AAII updates several stock screens developed and based on the teachings of several different investors and traders. For the value minded there are screens based on the works of several famous value investors including David Dreman, Benjamin Graham, and John Neff. For the growth investor there are screens based on the work of Phil Fisher, Martin Zweig, and others. Overall, for a new investor the screens provide the ability to study how a screen works and to develop ideas form them.

AAII was one of the first subscriptions I paid for when I started last year and I renewed this year. I recommend it to new investors. For $29 it is well worth the money spent.

The AAII has helped me greatly in managing my investments. They have unbiased education for all levels of investors and two model portfolios that have performed extreamly well are included with membership.

Have you looked at the Computerized Investing option they offer? Do you think it would be of any use? I am currently considering AAII membership and I wonder if the extra money they charge for the Computerized Investing section is worth it.

I did both the first year to see what Computrized Investing was, but I did not purchase it the second year. While I may not have enjoyed it you may have a different opinion.

Thanks for the information about AAII. It's always good to hear about a quality source of investment information.

I'm a Romanian Investor and can't subscribe to AAII. I'm very interested in the AAII Bull/Bear Questionnaire conducted by AAII every week. Please, can somebody send me the questions in that questionnaire ?

Ask yourself: If they know so much, why are they not investing themselves, instead of writing a newsletter? As has been said, it's because "Nobody Knows Nothin'" (...John Bogle, former CEO, Vanguard).

I have found AAII to be the best cost-benefit value of any other investment source. I have an MBA,completed a Financial Planning University program, and have invested for over 30 years. I have yet to find any other source to compare to the comprehensive, practical investment services, tools, and educational information provided by AAII. I highly recommend AAII to anyone regardless of investment experience and background. It can provide life long value in helping you invest, manage and grow your money.

How would you compare AAII to Better Investing? I belong to an investment club which subscribes to Better Investing, but I am wondering if I should join AAII as well. Would I learn anything more?

Don Fleming said...

I'm interested allright. Just starting to research AAII, wondering if they issued any pull back (sell..) type signals late yr 2007 or late 2000 when the market corrected (shall we say crashed..). Also before the .COM web stocks bubble burst. Any one know?

Thx much

AAII is crap. Honestly I don't see why anyone other than AAII employees would give them rave reviews. First just count the number of times they advertise their stock screener pro software and stock super stars report (even after you subscribe it is on EVERY page and their super stars have misleading earning stats). Secondly, they do little things to piss you off and make you want to buy their software. For example, click on a screen will show you the passing companies. But the page it shows it on is deliberately made so small that you have to repeatedly scroll left and right to read anything.... you can go full screen but that opens up in another window... W.T.F. I paid for this crap?

I also subscribed with IBD and felt it was 1000% better spent. I can live with their stupid editorials as long as they do a good job on the stocks which they do.

Lastly, I also subscribed to MorningStar and they are even worse than AAII. It's so bad, you can find several examples where their analyst says strong buy and two weeks later stock loses 40% of its value. Not that I use it for that I do my own research but still it's just hilarious. They also don't let you cancel the subscription easily -- you have to call to cancel!

I have a web site where I give advise on penny stocks. and stocks under five dollars I have had much success over the years because I thoroughly research all my stock selections very carefully before I buy a stock. If their is anyone that is interested in these type of stocks you can check out my web site by just clicking my name. I would like to comment about penny stock promoters theirs definitely good reasons to not take advise from a web site that recommends stocks trading under 50 cents. Generally speaking although their are exceptions stocks trading under 1 dollar are usually bad investments. I have had great success over the years with stocks trading between 1 dollar and 10 dollars a share. I would like to suggest a stock that I like here it trades around 4 dollars a share the company is in the retail appliance business. the company is very profitable’ with much less risk than most stocks trading under 5 dollars this is an excellent company what I would call a diamond in the ruff’ any competent investment professional would have great respect for anyone that could find such a good company trading at only 4.50 dollars a share. I think the stock could get to 20 dollars a share over the next five years. the company Appliance Recycling Centers of America, Inc. symbol {ARCI}
