Great if you suffer from insomnia
I'll admit, I'm a subscriber of Morningstar by accident. I signed up for the free trial of Morningstar Premium and forgot to unsubscribe. I've since given my mother (the queen of mutual funds and bonds) my log-in and even she has a hard time finding value in it.

While Morningstar has attempted to rebrand and be known for more than just fund ratings, I find their stock picks to be only oriented towards value investors. There are currently 34 stocks rated 5 Stars (the highest rating); however, they primarily fall into the beaten-up Materials and Energy sectors. In other words, they recommend stocks at their 52 week lows.

Morningstar assigns a fair value price to stocks, but it's usually in correction territory for most companies. At the time of this review, their fair value price of Netflix is $69.00 split adjusted. Good luck ever seeing NFLX that low anytime soon.

Their stock screener on their website is very cumbersome to use, so I'd recommend using any free stock screener or the one found in Think Or Swim.

The articles are more focused towards selecting the right funds for your portfolio. If you are a professional wealth manager, you'll find use here. If you're a trader, these will be of no use to you.

In today's extremely fast paced and volatile market, I think you should spend your money on other premium services and tools that provide daily trade ideas and market commentary (like Investors Business Daily). While $200/yr is cheap, it's a waste of money if you never use it.

Good daily emails
I am Morningstar subscriber. They send very informative daily emails with my portfolio summary + section about major indices. I like to see news for several top stocks from my portfolio.

Excellent Mutual Fund Data
Very detailed and informative fund data available on their site for free.

They break out distributions by capital gains vs. interest income.

Well laid out site.

Good for fundamental research
I have been a premier member at Morningstar for about 4 years. I use the site often to research stocks I'm interested in, and I find their analysis very helpful. But they are only good for fundamental research. They don't go anywhere near technical analysis and can be very tone deaf to the macroeconomic picture. So I never follow their stock recommendations. They are champions for buy-and-hold, which I don't believe works very well anymore. Also, their buy and sell price targets are usually unconnected to reality. I don't buy many mutual funds, but they have a good reputation for rating those. Their information on ETFs is pretty weak. I usually go to etfdb.com for that. More info and the filter is easier to use.

former star of a past generation
they were huge in the past pre internet days. Now with so many sites and data you dont need them. By the time you see a fund doing really well and you get in their run its over. Its a reactionary service. typically by the time a fund or anything gets picked up my major media as hot the easy money iis over

Too expensive for what you get.
Subscibed for a few months but found that i could get just as much out of google & yahoo finance. My money is better spent elsewhere.

Solid Service, Worth the Money???
Guys I am quite impressed with the services they offer. Morningstar provides data on more than 300,000 investment offerings on everything from Stocks to Options to FX. The in-depth analysis they provide is exceptional along with the article they write on the economic policies, foreign relations, personal finance. Everything you could possibly think of is on Morningstar not to mention an array of investment tools that can become quite handy when analyzing stocks. The problem is Morningstar is a paid subscription so most people are hesitant to sign up, not willing to give up cash for a service they have never used.

Good information, but pushy with their premium services
This site has good information, especially for mutual funds. I like looking at a fund's stewardship in addition to its long term performance. However, they are a little pushy with their premium services. It seems to have gotten worse lately. They mix in their "premium" links with their free ones and the wrong click will have you facing a screen asking you to enter your credit card. If you don't mind this, you will find alot of information (free and paid) on really whatever you are trying to invest in. Their video content is not well produced, but can be insightful.

Mutual Fund Product
Great for Mutual Fund Dissection, although I wouldn't trust their ranking system.

Lots of good financial data
This is where I go when I need to dig a little deeper into a company's financial data especially if I want to look back 10 tears or so. This is a good one to bookmark.
