    Any active value investors on here used Skaffold to help research the shares they invest in? I've seen it promoted via both Roger Montgomery and Money Magazine. I used the free 7 day trial and found the site very easy to use, but obviously you need to know what your doing but purely from an investment strategy standpoint.

    $875 per year can be a little pricey for helping you access information you can find for free however.

    I looked at it after reading RMs books. I liked them a lot and recommend them to others looking at shares.

    Don't really understand the point of skaffold though. It was a monthly subscription when I last looked at it, not sure if it still is? You can use the formulas in the books to assess potential shares, or your existing shares on say a monthly basis. You get better and better at this so it becomes easier over time.

    Alternatively if you want a more hands off approach to his investing methodology, just invest into his fund.

    I agree with @D.T. buy his book, understand the methodology he uses for calculating intrinsic value, then use a stock screener to make your own shortlist of companies to further investigate.

    From memory he is big on stocks with high ROE and conservative debt ratios which is a good start to filter by.
