Financial Literacy & Education

Most people do not know how to manage their personal finances, let alone how to value a stock, bond, or derivative.  One of our goals is to help people learn about finance, business, economics, etc and to correct/clarify the often mis-information spread by the likes of the Main Stream Media, our Government, and the like.

Every day, we make our views on markets, single-name investments, and other observations available to the public via our twitter streams (see Contact page for details), and we do so free of charge.  We support Stocktwits, a platform where anyone can see the analysis and observations of professional investors and market comentators.

We’ve developed a sophisticated Rent v. Buy calculator and Mortgage Model (**usage allowed with attribution**) to help people decide which option is better given their particular situation and how much they can afford to spend once that decision has been made.  Our model is based on significant research and includes several inputs that can have a vast impact on the outcome, inputs that are ignored by virtually every mortgage and rent calculator we encountered.  Over time we plan on expanding the calculator’s capabilities and streamlining it from an excel model into a web-based calculator.  You can find the most current version here:

Additionally, Stone Street Advisors is a founder of Street Meet, a collective effort that brings together finance professionals, bloggers, journalists, and other stakeholders in an effort to foster open debate and improve financial literacy and education.

If you have or know of any additional ways we can help please let us know ASAP!
