As an individual investor, I'm not in Hoover's target market, but do use their free stuff occaisonally. Personally, I don't like it:
- the pages are large and complicated and often crash my browser when they load
- the pages are very cluttered; I find it hard to read them

The only thing I use them for is to find out who a company's main competitors are.

I agree that other sources cannot necessarily be relied upon, but why is Hoovers more trustworthy? I use marketguide for quick easy scanning, but I would never use it or any other service as a substitute for real DD
