Re: File No. 4-626
The Investor.gov project is an excellent start on this extremely challenging endeavor.
The team over and Investors Hub has been working on its own Education effort, which hopefully will inspire some additions to the Investor.gov project. One that's proven helpful to many investors is 'Stock Market 101', which is available on the bottom of every page of Investors Hub.
There's some very good information there ranging from how to avoid frauds to the right places to look for investment ideas.
While it's extremely important to warn investors on what to avoid, it's equally as important to point them in the direction of what to dive deep into -- portfolio diversification, dividend-paying stocks, regularly reading news and SEC filings, and how to use stock screeners to yield high quality investment ideas.
