Out of control contributors
Spencer Osborne and his bio tech track record is just about as bad as it gets.50 60 70 80 PCT LOSSES are not uncommon and can occur in a matter of days.When you call him out on his picks he puts you down calls you a stalker emails you and threatens you with harassment.When that fails he posts in the comments section of his articles your name address and then slanders you by saying that you have been trying to contact his wife and kids .Seeking Alpha prints these slanders and then when you respond they take down his slanders and do not put up your response .By then the damage has been done

Good source of information and tips
SA produces a huge amount of articles each day through it's contributors. Obviously there are many bad tips and articles where the writer wants to pump up his/her stock. But through SA I've found a huge amount of tips which have been successful. You must do your own research afterwards and preferably combine the info in one article with info from other articles around the stock and its industry in general.

You're ratio of success will not improve if you follow all recommendations blindfolded, and that applies to all websites like these. But for me SA has been maybe the best source of tips on the web. After some time you will see which contributors who are most relevant for you.

The negative sides of SA (stock pumping, unrealistiv positive etc) is something you find everywhere - it doesn't matter if they are free or cost a fortune.

Note: There are many good contributors and articles based on excellent fundamental research on SA.

I will now try one of their paid services and review that when tested.

Seeking Alpha Provides Haven for Manipulators
When it comes to small and micro cap stocks, be very very careful with Seeking Alpha. Hedge fund managers have figured out that they can manipulate all the retail investors who read articles on the site. Some of these managers publish deceptive research and take advantage of small investors. Someone started this petition to get the SEC involved: https://www.change.org/p/israel-securities-authority-impose-oversight-and-controls-on-seeking-alpha-to-prevent-manipulation-of-small-cap-equities

Watchout For The Pumpers
The website is ok, but you have to watch out for the pumpers! Look and do your own research before taking advice from seeking alpha. Too many new traders take SA articles at face value and end up holding the bag on a P&D.

best crowd-sourced news
best crowd-sourced news you can find online. Some really smart people who outperform corporate analysts in their specialization post frequently. I love this site and the paid content features makes it even better (although I haven't yet submitted any paid content articles)

Pumps up stocks
Everybody can write posts on Seeking Alpha and they have a agreement with Yahoo! Finance to get their headlines in the News section of stocks.

Lately it is more and more used to pump stocks up and increase the interest and trading volume. The information is not always correct, but it gets noticed and moves stocks

Seeking Alpha is the melting pot of financial knowlledge
I really love SeekingAlpha.com. My favorite features are the email updates on stocks that I am following. I am a contributor, and I think the quality of articles on the site is pretty impressive (especially the ones I write). I definitely recommend it for experienced, intermediate, or even beginning traders as it is a great place to start learning equity analysis.

Great Site
When I want to look for finance articles I go to Seeking Alpha. There are a lot more solid articles with people who are passionate about their thoughts and views. If you are a good writer, you can make money by posting your own articles.
