Since the beginning of the century, Forbes has been one of the most prominent financial magazines in America. Even people who do not read the magazine have heard of the "Forbes 500," special lists such as the "World's Richest People" and other features provided by Forbes magazine.
The magazine is a good read, but active investors may be more interested in the many Forbes newsletters that give specific advice on investing in stocks, bonds, and other investment vehicles. The most famous one is the "Prudent Speculator," which has consistently maintained a high ranking in the Hulbert Financial Digest, an independent newsletter tracking service. The "Prudent Speculator" has had a phenomenal 23%+ annualized return for the last 25 years. The newsletter was founded by Al Frank in 1977 and has maintained a consistently stellar record, making it one of the highest regarded financial newsletters available.
