New Year's Resolutions: It Might Be Too Late for Bernie Madoff, But Not for StreetBrains!

Not everyone believes in resolutions. As it is, a lot of people are too busy to make changes - too stuck in their ways to lead a more positive personal and professional life. Some people think resolutions are cliche and insignificant. But after this year, wouldn't it be a good idea to introduce something new? I'm sure there's a few people in our industry who will probably resolve to add a bit more due diligence to their operations. In the end, there's always something we can do - setting goals, making changes, being more careful.

At StreetBrains, we started early. We've been working on our resolutions for months as we've been looking to bring the right kind of change to Wall Street at a time it needs it most.

We've resolved to improve our research offering. More analysts, more information - a pipeline of research providers that is making StreetBrains the largest and most diverse research portal.

We've resolved to make it easy. Our old site was good, but now it's better. Information catered to your tastes. No one goes to a steakhouse to see a vegetarian menu. Why should your user experience on our website be any different? Want to see research on telecommunications? Get it directly without having to comb a jungle of information.

We've also resolved to be the best. We don't want to be that company that reminds you of some other company in the Wall Street research space. We want to be unique and we want your experience on our site to be unique. StreetBrains is filling a void. As we see it, we are setting a new standard. We've resolved to build a new platform for investors that is best of breed.

We welcome you to be a part of our resolutions.

Looking Forward: StreetBrains '09

While we try to forget about '08, is there something to be learned? Maybe a few things, but let's not dwell on the disappointments. The TARP, Lehman Brothers, Bernie Madoff, bad markets... the list goes on.

'09 should be better, right? It has to be.

At StreetBrains, we're not going to focus on the negative news. '08 has taught us that our industry isn't perfect no matter what paper you print it on. So what?

The answer is to move on. Keep going. Do the right thing. Think and act positively.

Information Matchmaker

It's a new year. StreetBrains loves a new year. We love staying fresh, we love changing it up and we want you to benefit from our embrace of change.

Our new website, StreetBrains 2.0, will soon be launching. With our new research hub, we will be your information matchmaker. Have a research need? No problem. We make it simple and easy to get the insight you need to make trading decisions. We are opening the door to an information portal that will match your profile with the right research. Looking for research on the Middle East? Want to know when to buy energy related stocks? All of our research is at your fingertips. We have a research pipeline of 76 providers representing over 170 analysts - one of the largest teams on Wall Street, independent or otherwise.

StreetBrains has been working very hard to make '09 a very exciting year. We want you to share the excitement with us.
