I subscribed for several years when living in CA and receiving my paper on my front porch every morning. It gave all the market information for the previous day before the market opened for the next day. I found it organized in a manner I liked better than Wall Street Journal.
Then I moved to VA and my IBD came in the mail, and arrived a day later. I found it a lot less useful and dropped the subscription.
If you are active in your investing, and do a couple trades a month, I find up-to-date information essential. You can choose between IBD and WSJ. If you are strictly buy-and-hold, the tables in a big Sunday paper will do.
There was a mutual fund for awhile using Canslim investing; it didn't do well in a bear market.
Apart from CANSLIM, I like IBD and probably would pay the price if there were an early morning delivery as opposed to coming in the mail. And that, of course, is a matter of volume of subscriptions. I like it for the news and articles, and the %rankings of stocks, extra numbers by each listing that is not given in WSJ.
Best wishes, Chris
