Financial Kudos Announces Private Beta Launch of Groundbreaking Community for Investors

www.FinancialKudos.com Is the First Place Online Where People Can Share, Invest and Earn Rewards

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - June 9, 2009) - For years, investors searching for tips and information online have contended with messy message boards or restrictive character limits. Finally, there is a place to find quick, easy and relevant information about financial markets. Today, www.FinancialKudos.com, the first online community for investors where members can share, invest and earn rewards, announced its private beta launch. Prospective users are invited to visit www.FinancialKudos.com to request membership and learn more about the new incentive-driven community designed to reward members for their participation and contributions.

"We're pleased to announce the private beta launch of FinancialKudos.com, the first investor community that rewards its members for the quality of their participation," said Larry Margolis, Founder and CEO of Financial Kudos. "For the first time, online investors will have the opportunity to win awards and earn recognition from their peers for providing actionable investment ideas."

FinancialKudos.com invites users to reward one another for posting key trading information and sharing relevant investor tips by gifting "Kudos" points to reflect their appreciation for a good scoop or concept. At the end of each month, the members with highest number of Kudos earned and most notable community contributions will be awarded prizes including a portion of the membership revenue.

FinancialKudos.com offers a robust new interactive community for investors with key elements including:

--  Alerts sent to members to provide real-time updates on posts or
    investor information on FinancialKudos.com through Twitter and Facebook
--  Simple three-step process for creating new posts not limited to 140
    characters and commenting on existing threads with multimedia component
    that allows posting of charts, videos and photographs
--  Easy-to-access database searchable by company name, stock symbol, news
    topic or recent trend
--  Leaderboard updated in real time to reflect most active and
    influential community members
    

FinancialKudos.com will scale from private beta launch to full national launch in the coming weeks, and invites interested parties to learn more at www.FinancialKudos.com and on Twitter @financialkudos.
