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.

The wikipedia of financial news and analysis
This is the Wikipedia of financial news and analysis. It's mostly a crowdsource or collection of amateur writers writing about financial stocks with no real merit. It's like trusting Wikipedia as an official source of history or news. It's a tool of propaganda. Unfortunately, it is also becoming a tool for market manipulation and false information. I think in the future they will be subjected to some kind of regulation. It might be better if they use certified individuals to publish articles too. It's more like the Wild West of financial news and analysis.

2.5 to 2.7 stars.

Useless
There are too many writers who just try to promote themselves instead of providing useful information. The "Quick picks" is a joke, completely useless. The best contributors are just leaving them.

I used to read their options articles, some of them provided very good and actionable options ideas, but since they discontinued the options category, the whole site is completely useless.

A fatally flawed business model.
Seeking Alpha seeks out and accepts articles written by any individual or group that pertain to the business of the author's choice. Thus they publish articles that pass their initial loose screening on any traded company under the sun. Many articles generate large amounts of contentious comments written usually by the same few followers of the subject stock. These exchanges are sometimes of great value to the reader involved with that stock.

Unfortunately, most of the lengthy commenters are by regulars who don't know the meaning or the value of the word brevity. It is hard to follow the comments.

A greater problem results from the way in which the article authors are compensated, which is by the number of clicks generated. Naturally this leads authors who desire a maximum of compensation to write articles solely on the most popular retail stocks: Apple, Google, Facebook, Sirius, Pandora, et al. So you are probably going to come up empty on your retail store or construction business.

And even as to the companies covered in depth, as noted, some are worthless because the small would-be analyst group that submits an article on a company of interest usually knows less about it than the "civilians" who frequent the site. And the articles and subsequent comments generated by the knowledgeable civilians can be just too hard to read and understand all.

In short, Seeking Alpha is a clever idea for dispersing news of a company to its hungry-for -knowledge shareholders that unfortunately should be seeking a better way to collecting and publishing articles by some very knowledgeable "civilians".

Some great info here
Amateur posts to real solid info on stocks, and everything in between. Many articles spike stocks up bigtime, so it's worth following for some good trades.

An ecclectic mix of insight from amateurs and pros
I'm a fan of Seeking Alpha because it contains a large quantity of content on almost any stock you can think of. For me it's a good place to see some of the chatter surrounding a company. A lot of the content can come across as amateurish because almost anyone can publish on their site but I don't have a problem with this. Seasoned pro's publish their content on the site as well and if you're willing to sift through a few articles you can find some quality insights. It also is a good outlet for people to get feedback on their investment ideas.
