172 investing classes at Morningstar

January 21, 2007

I am frequently asked for good resources to learn more about investing.  Morningstar.com is one of my favorite resources to learn more about investing. 

The Morningstar Classroom offers over 172 courses on investing.  Topics cover stocks, bonds, mutual funds and portfolio management. 

The classes are free and start from a basic learning level and progress up to an advanced level, so investors of all levels can improve their investing knowledge.  Visit the Morningstar Classroom to review the course catalog and to sign up. 

In addition to these free courses, Morningstar also offers investing workshops for a nominal fee.  The workshops are more in depth than the free courses, and include exercises to help sharpen your investing skills. 

Finally, Morningstar has some great articles on their website.  My favorite columnist is Sue Stevens.  Click on the Personal Finance tab to read Sue’s articles.
