Looking for Investment Analysts/Writers to write articles/reports about investment/trade ideas. We will be publishing them to our site, Seeking Alpha, or other sites.
You will be paid $100 for every article/report. Analysts who can contribute 5 or more articles will be paid a $100 bonus. Pay is conditional on acceptance by us, and all of the rates include Upwork fees - so they represent what we pay. Payments will be made weekly. Writers will have the freedom to write about the investment/trade ideas that they choose but the securities to express the investment/trade have to be on U.S. exchanges. We will give direction on what fundamental questions need to be answered in each article/report. There is not a strict word count, but we anticipate that each article/report will take at least 1,000 words. As long as the piece addresses the fundamental questions and is well-written, word count becomes less of a priority.
We hope that the pay structure motivates you to write as much as possible but with respect to quality. We are looking for writers with superior analytical skills but who also exhibit exceptional command of grammar - requiring minimal edits and revisions. Writers should have a good command of written English and create original content. No plagiarizing. Hyperlinks to reputable sources (Bloomberg, Forbes, CNBC, etc.) used for the articles should be included in the document. Once the article is accepted by us, we will own all rights to the article and you cannot republish it anywhere else.
We are looking for unique analysis and opinionated articles - not aggregation of data and/or reporting on how well or poorly a company has done up to that point. Articles of this type will be rejected by us and lead to the termination of the contract. Articles should not be full of filler with background on the company and the products or services they offer. You should assume that the audience you are writing for is fairly sophisticated and already familiar with the company/sector/industry/economy and with common investing and financial terms (EPS, P/E, gross margin, long, short, etc.). We’re looking for independent writers and analysts who do not need much direction. We’ll clarify job details but we’re not looking to teach people how to write or analyze investments.
Please include samples of your previous work and/or links to your previous articles or research.
