Best Stocks’ mission is to provide free, “no-distorted” financial information. We aim to help our readers to make information-based investments.
Best Stocks is a finance media that provides stock recommendations, news, and real-time stock prices. We empower readers with the necessary knowledge and resources to identify the best stocks on the market to make informed investment decisions.
At Best Stocks, we take the trust our readers place in us very seriously: we are aware that we are providing information that might affect their financial health. Thus, we believe financial information should be free and use a 100% “no-distort information” policy.
Consequently, we don’t offer paid subscription-based access. Also, we don’t use affiliate links (that would influence us to suggest products or services to you for us to earn commissions) nor sponsor stocks, products, or companies without following due process.

How do we make money?
When you run a financial blog as we do, there are mainly four ways to make money:
a) Sponsoring companies. It is probably the worst thing we could do to our readers. This means favoring this company or stock because we are paid rather than seeing an actual value. This is a big NO-NO for our site.
c) Affiliate links: Although this is a more legit way to monetize, this works similarly to sponsoring, in our opinion. Although affiliate links are a common way to profit from financial blogs, we don’t like using them. That is because bad companies that invest heavily in affiliate marketing, promising lucrative commission earnings, are presented as “best companies” to readers. On the other side, good companies with no affiliate program have low visibility and are only promoted if they run an affiliate program.
c) Membership-based: This monetization method involves having a site section open only for paid members. This is against our vision of providing free access to information for all investors.
Rather than profiting in the short term by applying one of these monetization methods, Best Stocks partners with MediaVine by placing just a few minimal ads and banners on the site.
