New York, New York – (The Hosting News) – September 10, 2007 – Financial commentary, analysis, research, news and financial ratings resource, TheStreet.com,
has made available its new proprietary question-and-answer search platform, which is provided free of charge.
The new ”Street Answers” application, was designed as an interactive way to generate and share investing ideas. Anyone can visit the platform and ask questions about stocks and investment ideas, and in response, professional and self-directed money managers, traders and investors who make up TheStreet.com’s social networking community share their research.
James Altucher, President of Stockpickr.com, a wholly owned subsidiary of TheStreet.com offered, ”When people research stocks and investment ideas they need high-quality, real-time answers to their questions. A search engine or financial site alone is not always enough to help an investor find these answers, so we created ‘Street Answers’ – a comprehensive resource that houses the collective knowledge of investors looking to generate investment ideas and make more informed investment decisions.”
Continuing to add valuable interactive features to the site such as “Street Answers,” TheStreet.com hopes to draw additional users to its network of multimedia properties, further broadening its audience and offering the sponsorship opportunities advertisers demand in a Web 2.0 world.
This new development comes on the heels of TheStreet’s financial blog search engine, StockBlogr, devoted to accessing the top financial blogs on the Internet, with investment advice, information about specific stocks, and trading strategies. A StockBlogr search returns the most relevant blog posts related to the search text (for example, ”GOOG” or ”Cramer”) as well as links to relevant portfolios held by the professional investors tracked at Stockpickr.com and relevant videos from any of the major online financial video sites. The combination of these resources within one search engine serves to increase stickiness to TheStreet.com’s network of sites while delivering robust research options to users of the tool.
