Before using this site, please make sure that you note the following important information:
Do Your Own Research
Our content is intended to be used and must be used for informational purposes only. It is very important to do your own analysis before making any investment based on your own personal circumstances. You should take independent financial advice from a professional in connection with, or independently research and verify, any information that you find on our Website and wish to rely upon, whether for the purpose of making an investment decision or otherwise.
No Investment Advice
Our Website is a financial data and news portal, discussion forum and content aggregator. Investor Hangout is not a broker/dealer, we are not an investment advisor, we have no access to non-public information about publicly traded companies, and this is not a place for the giving or receiving of financial advice, advice concerning investment decisions or tax or legal advice. We are not regulated by the SEC.
We are an educational forum for analysing, learning & discussing general and generic information related to stocks, investments and strategies. No content on the site constitutes – or should be understood as constituting – a recommendation to enter in any securities transactions or to engage in any of the investment strategies presented in our site content. We do not provide personalised recommendations or views as to whether a stock or investment approach is suited to the financial needs of a specific individual.
Individual Empowerment, Not Hand-Holding
This is the beginning of a journey, not the end. Where we present investment screens, the results should only be treated as candidates for further research, not as a buy list or set of recommendations. Screening may help to narrow a search based on pre-defined criteria, but it is not a substitute for independent research reflecting your individual criteria for investing/trading.
Where we offer valuation tools, these are solely for informational & educational purposes so that users can easily run their own valuations. The pre-defined values are simply a starting point based on global assumptions that we have applied across the entire market – users should amend them as they see fit and not regard them as a substitute for their own judgment. Any resulting valuation outputs are necessarily generic and are not endorsed for a given stock by Investor Hangout.
User Generated Content
Much of the content on this site is user-generated and, as such, impossible to monitor effectively. Excluding the Investor Hangout Content and Investor Hangout Data, all of the information on our Website about businesses, companies, investment strategies, investments and investment opportunities are provided by our Registered Users and other third parties. We act as a mere conduit for this information published on our Website, and we do not select, monitor, edit, modify review, evaluate or otherwise oversee the information or the publication of the information on our Website.
Accordingly, we will not be liable, whether in contract, tort (including negligence) or otherwise, in respect of any damage, expense or other loss you may suffer arising out of such information or any reliance you may place upon such information. Any arrangements between you and any third party contacted via the Website are at your sole risk.
We would like to draw your attention to the following important investment warnings.
- The value of shares and investments and the income derived from them can go down as well as up;
- Investors may not get back the amount they invested – losing one’s shirt is a real risk;
- Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
