Capitalist Collective Disrupts Status Quo With Crowdsourcing Network for Equity Analysts

Social Network for Investors Features Crowdsourced Investment Research Exchange

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2011) - Capitalist Collective announced a groundbreaking hybrid social network that combines crowdsourced investment ideas with online and offline social networking. Advancing social networking to the next level, Capitalist Collective provides an environment for research, analysis, and debate between members with a crowdsourced investment research exchange. Bridging the offline and online worlds, Capitalist Collective adds in-person networking at receptions in New York and San Francisco, and introduces the first-of-its-kind crowdsourced invitation-only stock picking event, the Capitalist Collective Stock Picking Festival, hosted by Capitalist Collective and held at the offices of the New York Society of Securities Analysts.

One hundred seventy-five (175) of the top stock pickers who submit their research at Capitalist Collective will receive invitations to the event. Selections, based on merit, will be made by professional fund managers to ensure that the festival includes high-quality analysis, diverse market coverage, and actionable ideas.

"In the forty years I have been researching stocks, Capitalist Collective is the best tool I have come across," said Roger Lipton, founder and president, Lipton Financial Services.

Over 1500 professional and individual investors have already registered at Capitalist Collective for the investing ideas, stock pick debates, networking, and the talent contest, with rigorous research published on everything from oil trusts to Greek gambling companies and more. One member even identified buyout target Barnes and Noble before Liberty made their bid and before Borders went into liquidation.

"The analysis on the site has been as diverse as it is robust -- I have seen rigorous research on everything from retailers to IT Integrators to oil companies," added Aram Fuchs, General Partner at Fertilemind Capital and the Founder of Capitalist Collective.

Professional and individual investors may receive admission to the invitation-only Capitalist Collective Stock Picking Festival if they are one of the 175 finalists selected based on the quality of their stock picks. More information and a speaker list for the festival is available at
