Last week we talked about Health Literacy and how the Library can help you find the right resources for you to live a healthy lifestyle. This week, we are talking about a different kind of wellness related to financial literacy.
Living a “financially” fit lifestyle can be a hard task, but it is possible to get started in small ways through help at the Library. Currently, the Library’s Reference Department has several financial publications to help and guide you in your own personal finances.
The Kiplinger Newsletter
Find concise weekly forecast on business and economic trends, as well as what to expect from Washington.
The Kiplinger Tax Letter
Provides clear and concise year-round tax saving help for non-experts as well as tax professionals.
The Kiplinger Personal Finance Adviser
Provides information on savings, investments, taxes, money management, home ownership, and more personal finance topics.
Provides investment information for approximately 1,700 stocks. When you visit the Library, go to the Reference desk and ask for Value Line. There are three binders to choose from: Selection & Opinion, Ratings & Reports, and Small/Mid-Cap Ratings & Reports.
Selection & Opinion: Contains Value Line‘s latest stock market commentary and investment ideas.
Ratings & Reports: Contains information about 1,700 companies and 100 industries, forecasting stock for the next 3-5 years. Every week, Ratings & Reports contains approximately 130 company reports grouped by industry and a smaller number of industry reports.
Small/Mid-Cap Ratings & Reports: Small and Mid Cap companies are financially smaller companies than Large Cap companies, as discussed in the traditional Ratings & Reports. In the Small/Mid Cap Ratings & Reports, you’ll find investment information and forecasts for the small and mid cap companies.
Provides investment information about no load mutual funds and will offer advice on which funds to buy, hold or sell.
Published by S&P Global Market Intelligence, The Outlook provides information on the development and trends of the stock market and makes recommendations on when to buy, hold, or sell.
Published by Time Inc., Money Magazine covers a wide range of personal finance topics from investing to credit cards, and even rankings of best colleges for their money.
Our Reference Librarians can help you learn more about these magazines and if you have any questions about some of the financial terms these publications use.
