    anybody know of any sites that have a stock market forum? i'd like to find a good community. also, I have a quick question regarding stocks, why do people want to own stock in publicly traded companies besides speculation that the price will increase or dividends?

    Yahoo has forums for specific companies.

    Are you asking why people by stocks? :confused:

    basically yes, besides speculation and dividend payouts, what other benefits are there?

    The money is easy if you have good timing. Be careful. This is like Vegas, odds are more on your side though :)

    There are differences between investing, trading, and speculation.

    One more reason to buy stocks is to preserve wealth.
