Another year has come and gone – although this particular year feels like it’s dragged on for a decade. I think I speak for most of the world when I say I cannot wait for this dumpster fire of a year to be over. Although I don’t expect 2021 to be a complete return to the norm – I am hopeful we will start to see things slowly open back up, and there is definitely a lot of promising news on the vaccine front.
Two years ago I created a list of some of my favourite Canadian investment blogs, which a lot of people seemed to like. I didn’t do one last year, but decided I’d create a new list (with some familiar names, and a few new ones). This year has been so ridiculous that I haven’t put nearly as much time into updating this site, or reading other sites, but I still spend a lot of time on twitter which I believe is a great way to consume a lot of info a short period of time. On that note -I’ll include twitter accounts to follow that I highly recommend as well.
While this year will still be quite heavily focused on Canadian Investing websites(since the majority of my investing/research is focused on Canadian Equities) – I will be including a few friends from down south and overseas as well. Okay enough blabbering. Here is my list (in no particular order) of the top Investments sites & twitter personalities to follow in 2021!
My Own Advisor:
Great for both beginners and advanced investors. The site is largely focused on building wealth over time, does in depth reviews of ETFs & Stocks and shares his portfolio/journey. Mark has been around for quite some time and was one of the first Canadian Investing Sites I started reading. He is also very active on twitter, and like me enjoys beer, whisky and hockey!
All About The Dividends
Matt from All About The Dividends is another Canadian investor about the same age as me. What I like most about Matt is his openness in sharing his portfolio and thoughts behind his investment decisions. Matt may also be the most positive and encouraging person you will ever find on twitter.
Bert & Lanny are the two diplomats behind the site. They are the first non Canadian investors on my list, but they deserve to be mentioned. I enjoy reading their site for a few reason:
-to get some ideas on non Canadian dividend (USA) stocks
– to check up on their portfolios (which they share freely)
– to read my favorite posts each month- when they highlight other investors passive income journeys
They have also recently launched a youtube channel.
The boys in the garage are great fun. They discuss everything from personal finance, investing, tax efficiencies and more. They do this on their website, twitter as well as their podcast (they had me on as a guest earlier this year). You can check out that episode HERE. Another reason I love listening to these guys, is they are very down to earth, and along with discussing finance on each podcast, they also have a beer (or bourbon) and discuss those as well.
Another non Canadian site to add to the list. Cheesy Finance chronicles the journey of a young dutch as they pursue F.I.R.E. The site has sections in both English & Dutch, and they are very active on twitter as well. Cheesy also enjoys beer – and likes to taunt us on twitter with his superior beer collection.
If you are looking for info on some of the top Canadian Dividend stocks to invest in – look no further than StockTrades. Dan & Mat continually put out quality articles, Canadian stock picks and more. They are also both super active and helpful on twitter as well. Give the site a read – and give the boys a follow!
Twitter(s): https://twitter.com/matlitalien & https://twitter.com/StockTrades_CA
This is a site I was just recently introduced to, but I am glad I was. The in depth coverage on Canadian REITS is fantastic. They first got my attention when I read their pieces on Sandpiper/Artis Reit. They don’t post new updates as often as I’d like, but when they do they are very in depth. They are active on twitter as well.
The Stinky Stonk Market
Need a laugh? Look no further than the Stonk Market. Picture the onion if it only focused on investing and finance. Admittedly I don’t visit the website that often – but I laugh out loud to myself a few times a week just reading their tweets. So if you need a break from doing stock screeners, fundamental or technical analysis of stocks – then give them a read.
GEN Y MONEY
Gen Y makes the list again for good reason. Her site focuses a lot more on the personal finance side of things (credit card rewards, budgeting, etc and is also a great resource for new investors starting out). We also own a lot of the same stocks and I like to have friendly competitions with her about who is earning more in dividend income. *Spoiler Alert* She is kicking my ass!
Cut The Crap Investing
Dale from Cut The Crap Investing is quickly becoming very well known in the Canadian personal finance space. He contributes to Moneysense, Million Dollar Journey and Seeking Alpha. He is a champion of low cost ETF’s (he probably cringes to know I pay 1.4% MER on a Canadian Mutual Fund) and is always willing to share his thoughts on stocks and suggestions on twitter.
Passive Canadian Income
Rob from Passive Canadian Income seems like one of the guys in the online personal finance community that I’d most likely wanna go grab a beer with. He is super down to earth, very open about his financial journey and has multiple streams of income including dividends, solar power & a private investment which pays him a nice sum each month. His taste in beer is definitely lacking – but I am sure he will grow up one day.
Canadian Value Stocks
Tyler from Canadian Value stocks is one of the few sites who continually puts out quality, in depth article and deep dives on specific stocks. One thing I love about his site is how clean/to the point it is – it’s just straight down to business. Nothing fancy – just quality stock analysis. He focuses on Canadian stocks, and is very knowledgeable about the Canadian REIT sector.
Bob from TAWCAN (which is short for Taiwanese Canadian) is another Canadian finance site with topics ranging from dividend stocks, ETFS, F.I.R.E and more. His website is another great resource for people wanting to learn more about investing in Canada. He also shares his monthly dividend income – which is very impressive!
Although I am not superstitious….I dont think I’ll leave the list at 13 – instead I’ll add a few more dividend investing & personal finance twitter accounts you should definitely follow!
