By Patricia Uceda, Spring 2014 Student Intern

In addition to the information reported in annual reports, independent news sources can also provide an ample amount of information about how a company or a market is performing. Fortune magazine has countless stories on new technology, Fortune 500 companies, small businesses, and more. CNNMoney is another great resource, with many articles on investing, mortgages, stocks and bonds, etc. Utilizing these resources will ensure that you get the latest news that might have an impact on your investments, and will provide you time to analyze the situation and decide what changes, if any, to make to your portfolio.
