    Best sites and/or books that cover intelligent investing?

    I don't know much about investing - I've bought stocks in the past and got burned hard, so I'm very hesitant to jump in, but my cash is tied up only in my home and bank accounts (and business assets, but that's only about 10k.) I feel like I'm wasting potential by not maximizing my resources and allocating them in the right areas.

    What are the best sources of information that aren't simply trying to sell you on their services? Looking for a couple sites and books that cover enough bases so I don't need to spend years researching.

    Gold is decent protection against inflation but the growth won't be explosive any time soon at all. But it does seem like it would also be good protection against an economic collapse - regardless of currency rising and falling you know gold will always retain value anywhere in the world.

    Definitely long term. I've been putting away around ~50k a year in the bank the last few years and I feel it's just not working for me much (obviously.) Will check that out, thanks and repped.

    Sure I've thought about it, but how do you know they're trustworthy? What if they have a super rich client who wants to dump a stock, so he pumps it up with his other accounts to let his bread and butter cash out? It's too hard to trust strangers. I've been ****ed over so, so many times in life, I've become skeptical about everyone who I don't know for a number of years.

    People that are legit should have a trackable history report that they can provide. you don't go through being a professional money management role without keeping records of how well you've been doing.

    As mentioned earlier, A Random Walk Down Wall Street is a great place to start. Would also recommend The Intelligent Investor by Benjamin Graham. Super Stocks is also a decent read, but those first two would probably be the top two recommendations. Also, be sure to check out Bogleheads, as someone mentioned above me.

    Having worked in the financial industry as an advisor and currently working on my education to further my career, I can promise you that (no offense, seriously) if you don't invest as a full time job having been previously educated in it and trained by successful people who have done it for a job, you will lose your ass. The amount of knowledge necessary to ACTUALLY know what you're doing and why to do it takes years and decades to acquire. Buy investment grade bonds,treasury bonds, CD's and anything that involves no/minimal risk. 90% of financial advisors know nothing except sales skills, so don't go with them either unless you have at least 250k to invest with one who is at a large firm and won't sell you mutual funds.

    Edit: Never ever buy gold. It has no real value and is highly manipulated.

    Books:
    -The Intelligent Investor
    -Security Analysis

    Investopedia.com is a great website that explains terms and basic concepts.

    Stop investing in individual stocks. You don't know what you're doing and you're going to end up losing a lot of money.

    Invest in index funds. The basic idea is that you'll just get the market average, say around 7% historically (depending on your portfolio setup). For me I have most of my money in stocks. I won't need the money until I retire so I keep my bonds very low (around 15%).

    I'll also recommend the book The Boglehead Guide To Investing. And check out the boglehead forum.

    You need to educate yourself before you start making moves, or you can pay someone to do it for you.
