3.0 out of 5 stars Best For Beginners July 9, 2004
Subscription Term Name:1 year
I subscribe to several financial magazines, of which "Money" is one. I think that "Money" is an excellent publication for neophyte investors, as it does provide generally sound information and advice. It is very good at explaining terminology in plain English, which is to be applauded, but investors with more knowledge of investments and financial planning would probably be better off with another magazine, like "Kiplinger's", for instance.
"Money" covers primarily investments in mutual funds, bonds, and stocks, although real estate and retirement planning are also dealt with regularly. I like the investment index feature in the back of the issue: it is honestly the only part of the magazine I routinely use anymore, although I do skim the articles, and read one or two per issue. My chief complaint with the magazine is how formulaic the articles are. It seems like every month there is an article called "The Best Places To Put Your Money Now", for instance. Timeliness is a good thing, but the magazine endorses long term investing (as do I) so the last thing I want to be doing is thinking about where to move my money to this month.
Beginning investors: this is an excellent magazine for you, and I say that without reservation. Overall though, "Money" is not bad, but if you are already fairly knowledgeable about financial management you can do much better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great steppingstone to other financial resources March 4, 2004
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year
Money magazine is an excellent starter magazine. The information in Barrons, Smart Money and other magazines will go over the heads of those with little or no investment knowledge. Many people don't know financial terminology such as 403(b), ESOP, Wrap fee, 529 plan, and load fund. Money magazine is a gentle introduction to these concepts. You may find in a year or two that you have outgrown Money and by then you should be able to move onto other financial magazines. The negative reviewers here fault Money for being unhelpful in stock-picking. However, there is a lot more to Money magazine than stocks. I personally find the information on taxes, mutual funds, retirement planning, the housing market, saving strategies and the latest business news interesting and helpful. If your interest is mainly in stocks I recommend Barrons instead. But for overall financial knowledge Money is the best magazine for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Getting Started December 10, 2001
By A Customer
Subscription Term Name:1 year
When I first started thinking about "planning for the future", a friend recommended this magazine. I ordered a one-year subscription. It was perfect. Lots of basic, getting-started information. I learned about my 403(b) and 401(k). I learned about traditional vs. Roth IRAs. I learned about all the fees associated with mutual funds. I learned about the tax implications of home ownership. The list goes on and on. Wonderful!
However...
By the time my one-year subscription was up, I was ready to move on. This magazine no longer had information that was useful to me. I was already familiar with the ideas being presented (from having read Money the previous year).
I now read Fortune, Business Week and The Economist.

2.0 out of 5 stars Flailing... April 17, 2003
Subscription Term Name:1 year
"Money" magazine has long been a staple of those who are looking to better their financial condition. But time and circumstance have not proven kind to it.
In an age when markets fluctuate wildly from day to day, a monthly newsmagazine for investors cannot match the timeliness and level of information needed to compete adequately in the stock market. Since "Money" has long been a staunch advocate of stock investing, this makes its advice dated and incomplete. As many websites and financial journals ("Barron's", "The Wall Street Journal") exist to fill the void for timely info, "Money" is becoming an anachronism. That its press deadlines are probably a month or two before publication, it lags far behind in catching trends and responding to them. Today's investors need better.
As a proponent of buying stock, "Money" has found its recommendations pummeled lately. Because people buy "Money" to help them make money, if the magazine cannot pick winners then its usefulness suffers. During this bear market, the magazine has flailed in its attempts to ride out the storm, trying to latch on to something, anything, that will work. This does not lend itself to investor confidence.
A case in point can illustrate. The magazine recently suggested a group of mutual funds across a variety of sectors/styles that they felt were good picks. The problem lay in the fact that not a single one had made money in the last couple years. Now certainly to make money you buy low and sell high, but there are several solid mutual fund companies that have made money in this market and would make money in a bull market, too. There are even funds that fared better than the average of the market, though they did not immediately turn a positive result.

4.0 out of 5 stars Long time subscriber January 11, 2016
By ELAINE
Subscription Term Name:1 year auto-renewal
I first bought this magazine as a teen. I saw "MONEY" and thought, oh, I want some money! That particular issue extolled the virtue of the 401k and convinced me to enroll as soon as my job changed from part time to full time. The timing could not have been better. I grabbed the tail end of one of the biggest bull markets in history, and I managed to escape the dot-com bubble bursting with minimal damage. I learned about re-balancing in the nick of time. The magazine also described exactly how to borrow money out of my 403b for a down payment on a home. I would not have known about the tax saver credit, Coverdell accounts, or how to claim my college expenses on my taxes without this magazine. I can honestly say that I have a better standard of living because of it. I gave this review 4 stars because of it.

Having said that, I didn't give 5 stars because this has slowly turned into the Reader's Digest of finance. It seems that they have mostly done away with the personal stories and financial fixes, and have added more and more articles about everything from what makes luggage worth the money to hiring a personal assistant. The articles are mildly interesting, but I loved the stories about how well (or bad) a real person was doing to compare myself to. Also, the longer you subscribe to Money, the faster you realize that they rehash a LOT of topics over and over. There is always the "1,001 ways to prosper in (pick a year)", "how to invest $1,000/$5,000/$10,000", and "what to do with your money NOW" issues. Sometimes I glance at the cover and think, "My God! This again??". I find their Social Security issue (not sure if it comes out in a specific month) to be easy to understand and very helpful. They also report on any upcoming changes.

Much better than Bloomberg IMO. It's light economics, but touches on a variety of issues. Often covers the same stories as other mags, but with an economical spin.
