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!
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 Very Good Financial Periodical May 21, 2009
Subscription Term Name:1 year|Verified Purchase
Money magazine is better than all of the others simply because it provides pragmatic information in an easily digestible form. It offers financial advice that just makes sense for most people to at least consider. Over the years I have had subscriptions to many of the other financial periodicals like Fortune, Smart Money, Forbes, Kiplinger's, WSJ, FT, IBD, etc. and with the exception of Barron's I have found most of those to be highly unuseful and full of advice that just makes little sense to the average investor. Sure Money has problems keeping things fresh and they do recycle information frequently, but the editor does try to provide practical information so people can make reasonable decisions. Money has the same problem all financial periodicals do, namely they need to sell magazines. In order to do that they must react to the pop finance topics and offer some reasonably interesting articles to feed the herd. Can you imagine the reaction they would have encountered had they run monthly warnings of the housing bubble begging in 2002? Everyone I knew thought it would continue forever...fools, of course. Money was not on the front edge of the warning system. Certainly they had a part in creating and adding credibility to the real estate bubble and subsequent meltdown. But they do not stand alone; all publications were pumping the same bologna.

Money will occasionally remind its readers that index beating returns are highly improbable in the long run and stock picking as a primary means is not a good strategy for long term wealth building. They offer really nice "what if" and comparison strategies for analysis such as: lease vs. buy, buy vs. rent, or Ivy League vs. state college strategies.

I used to like Smart Money magazine a lot but they discontinued Smart Money. So you have only Money and Kiplingers now. This is a good mag for beginners and as a reference.
