Does anyone answer their phone?

September 8, 2010 ( Newswire) Investor Ideas, an investment research portal specialized in sector research, has recently reported on the pulse of the economy from the perspective of a small business owner in the financial markets. specializes in sector research and creates a meeting place for investors, public companies and industry leaders. As a result, the site provides direct feedback within sectors and industry participants.

“We collect a lot of our data online from site feedback – but we also reach out to the industry by phone on an ongoing basis. What we find in terms of productivity – in terms of public companies it is really rare for the Investor Relations contacts to actually answer phones. We mostly get voice mails if we call out. When investor confidence is at all time lows – is that really a way to inspire confidence? And this is not just the small cap companies – in fact the larger the company the less likely you are to get human contact” notes President Dawn Van Zant.

“Our site builds on the online presence for companies within their sector, but there is no replacement for actually speaking to a person, and in particular – one who is knowledgeable about the company. Today I called twenty companies and only got a hold of one person who was actually the CEO of a small mining company. “

To quote my favorite musical artist- BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN and his hit song, "Radio Nowhere"

“I was spinnin' 'round a dead dial

Just another lost number in a file

Dancin' down a dark hole

Just searchin' for a world with some soul

This is radio nowhere, is there anybody alive out there?

This is radio nowhere, is there anybody alive out there?

Is there anybody alive out there? “

“If the market is to thrive and the economy, productivity is key – but so is the ultimate of social networking – human contact. I suggest we start talking to each other again to get things done.” covers over twenty leading investment sectors including mining and gold stocks and was one of the first investor research portals covering water, renewable energy and Homeland Security.
