Our imutual Cashback Investment Club is doing OK but not going anywhere fast.

I'm thinking to invest my own money and purchase a subscription with better tips and tricks to give us an advantage.

What is the best paid subscription for share tips?

Other obvious options to consider could include Shares or Investors Chronicle.

Thank you.

So to date, the options are as follows:
1. FT.com
2. The Motley Fool
3. Shares Magazine
4. Investors Chronicle
I earned my wealth by way of blood, sweat and tears. I have no intention to simply waste it on the wrong goods.

Any more good options please?

Some links below (although I don't know the validity of the articles)

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/pers ... arket.html and http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article ... folio.html

Have a look at the multitude of conflicting news on the right hand side of this web page https://www.google.com/finance?q=LON%3A ... 0gSFyYyIDg. Who has given the correct prediction and how do we know which one(s) to trust? I have always wondered how City Analysts can be so incongruent with one another and if they can predict the future of stocks, what is the point in them having a job as a City Analyst?

Even Motley Fool contradict themselves http://www.slackerwealth.com/2008/03/wh ... elves.html

I see. So I should be wary of the underworked and overpaid City analysts.

And Motley Fool, et al. They're all equally as conceited as the City Analysts but when you read their recommendations, it is quite evident that the rubbish they have concocted have been plucked out from thin air. Here is an example http://www.iii.co.uk/investment/detail/ ... d=11962613

As another example, Motley Fool sang the praises of Company X yet within hours of the article, a separate article emerges from Motley Fool that ridicules Company X. Both articles contained no evidence to back the claims.

Finally, here is an amusing article about these City Analysts http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2 ... e-say.aspx I particularly enjoyed the statement:
"He predicted the market crash in 2008."

He also predicted a crash in 2006, 2004, 2003, 2001, 1998, 1997, 1995, 1992, 1989, 1984, 1971...
