One of the most valuable assets for investors is data. Whether someone is investing small dollars via fractional markets or going all-in as a whale, they can't always rely on their gut to make smart choices. And randomly buying and selling in any market is just a form of gambling. While all investments have risks, being well-informed and basing decisions on facts, market trends and expert analysis helps investors hedge their bets.
Not everyone has time to keep up with financial news through traditional channels or read reports issued by every public company. Podcasts provide a great option for getting the most important investment information for the day or week without spending hours pouring over reports and newspapers.
Here are five podcasts for investors that provide analysis, information, and tips. Investors can listen to them during daily commutes, while working out at the gym, or attending to everyday work or household tasks—ensuring an educated investing experience without getting in the way of daily life.
