1. Mark Tilbury
Best suited for investors who want to learn the basics of the stock market and investing.
Mark Tilbury is a self-made millionaire and Youtuber that teaches his audience about personal finance and investing. His channel was started in 2014 and now has over 1.8M subscribers, which is no surprise. His videos are both engaging and insightful. One of my favorite videos is “Investing For Beginners – How I Make $17K per Week from Stocks” where Tilbury shares his story and how he became the success he is today.
Best suited for investors that appreciate deep research.
WhiteBoard Finance is a highly actionable investing channel that covers personal finance, real estate investing, and entrepreneurship. The channel is run by Marko, an enthusiastic and educated content creator. In his recent video, “You Need $2.2 MILLION To Be Wealthy in 2023” Marko breaks down the 23 Charles Schwab Modern Wealth Survey and debunks many myths.
Best suited for investors who want timeless advice and inspiration.
FREENVESTING is a popular investing channel with over 1M followers. Unlike some of the other channels on this list, FREENVESTING is faceless and instead leverages other investors' content (like interviews and podcasts) to create more engaging content. The most popular video is “Warren Buffett Leaves The Audience SPEECHLESS | One of the Most Inspiring Speeches Ever”.
Best suited for investors who want to diversify.
Charlie Chang is one of my favorite investing YouTubers. He’s a 31-year-old entrepreneur based in South California. His content ranges from personal finance to entrepreneurship. The short videos in his Corvette are highly engaging and contain a lot of advice from other successful investors and founders. Not only will you learn from Charlie, but you’ll also learn from his successful and intriguing guests. My favorite video is “A Day In The Life of a $2M+/Yr Entrepreneur (Work From Home)” where Charlie breaks down how he structures his day and why he’s so productive.
Best suited for investors who want to see the ‘science’ behind a stock.
Ticker Symbol: YOU is a genuinely helpful stock market YouTube channel with deep dives into companies, industries, and strategies. One thing I particularly like is how succinct each video is, there is no fluff. Every bit of information is relevant and helpful. One video I’ve referenced a few times is “Top 3 AI Stock to Buy Now (ARK Invest’s Big Ideas 2023)” since AI has been disrupting markets at a rapid pace.
Best suited for Day Traders.
TradingLab is an engaging channel that produces high-quality edited videos on trading strategies. Each video breaks down a strategy referencing proof along with how you can replicate it. On top of this, there are loads of educational videos such as “The ULTIMATE Supply & Demand Guide (My Secrets)”.
7. Stock Moe
Best suited for investors who want to understand the bigger picture.
Stock Mo is a popular investing stock market channel with over 600,000 followers. He’s a teacher who has won 2 national championships and 15 state championships for investing-related competitions. What separates Stock Moe from other channels is his candid approach to creating videos. I highly recommend investors watch his breakdown of Warren Buffet & Michael Burry’s recent trading activity.
Best suited for investors who want advice on which stocks to buy.
Ale is a YouTuber with two channels Ale’s Word of Gaming and Ale’s World of Stocks. However, his stock channel has performed significantly better with over 115,000 followers since launching in 2017. Ale’s videos are highly tactical giving you insights on which stocks you should be buying based on the industry or sector you’re most interested in. He also breaks down his portfolio and shares why he opens (or closes) positions in certain companies.
Best suited for every investor who wants to learn about the economy.
Ray Dalio is the founder, former co-chief Investment Officer, and co-chairman of Bridgewater Associates. Bridgewater is one of the biggest hedge funds in the United States with over $100 billion in assets under management. His popular book, Principles, is one of my favorite investing resources, it’s a timeless classic that can be referenced each and every year. His YouTube channel is just as impressive. With over 2.2M followers and almost 300 videos, Dalio offers some of the best advice on YouTube. His most popular video “Principles for Dealing with the Changing World Order by Ray Dalio” has over 39M views ????.
10. Stocks with Josh
Best suited for investors that like to understand the politics behind a company.
Stocks with Josh is a stock-focused channel that also covers cryptocurrencies, options, automated bot trading, and early retirement through smart investment decisions. Most of his videos cover news and break down current trends in the stock market. A recent one that I found interesting was “Maui FIRE: Who to blame ???? HE Stock Crash ???? 466% Upside” which deconstructs some of the companies involved with the Maui fires.
Best suited for investors who want to earn passive income from stocks.
As the name suggests, Dividends and Income is a YouTube channel run by Jason Fieber, that focuses on undervalued stocks and high-dividend stocks. The content is interesting, engaging, and useful. Jason also shares specific stock picks that you might want to keep an eye on. For instance, in his video “This DIRT Cheap Stock is Confusing Analysts”, Jason shares a furnishing company that has growing profits and pays out increasing dividends.
Best suited for investors that prefer high-growth stocks.
This is another awesome YouTube channel that gives me a lot of energy every time I watch a new video. The videos are packed with value I genuinely feel like I’m making better decisions when I watch Eric present his rationale behind specific investments. My favorite video is “12 Stock Portfolio: Uncover 25 Explosive Growth Stocks to Buy Now!” mostly because I like high-growth stocks and variety.
13. Timothy Sykes
Best suited for penny stock traders.
Timothy Sykes is a famous YouTuber best known for turning $12,415 into $7,488,000 by trading penny stocks. Of course, this isn’t typical for most traders but his advice and investing content are helpful. One thing that stands out with this channel is the emphasis on leveraging different environments rather than trying to pick winning stocks. For instance, his video “How To Capitalize on This Trading Environment Right Now” shows two specific patterns to keep an eye on.
14. Ricky Gutierrez
Best suited for investors who want to learn about making money online.
Ricky Gutierrez is a Youtube with a large following, he has over 1.1M followers in his channel and 300,000+ in his investing group. He claims to help you start investing in stocks, ETFs, Penny Stocks, Cryptocurrency, Startups, Real Estate, Forex, Binary options, affiliate marketing, digital marketing, and other creative methods to make money online. His most popular video is “A Day In Life With Arizona's Youngest Millionaire | Ricky Gutierrez 2018”
15. The Plain Bagel
Best suited for stock market movie tear-downs.
The Plain Bagel is an investing channel run by Richard, a CFA and CFP professional working as an analyst for an investment management company in Ottawa. While he posts education content I prefer his explanation videos on Wall St movies like The Big Short.
Best suited for value investors.
Tom is a Youtuber based in New Zealand although he invests all across the world. His videos are a mix of educational content, such as calculating the intrinsic value of a stock, and commentary on recent events like Alibaba’s earning updates. One of my favorite videos is “Value Investing Basics: The Best Investors Don't Speculate (Six Examples)” where Tom debunks common myths and shares advice from the world's best investors.
Best suited for investors that appreciate expert opinions.
Benzinga is a popular financial news and analysis site that provides timely insights to investors and traders. They offer a range of content, including breaking news, data, and tools to empower the investment community. Their Youtube channel hosts similar content, including interviews with special guests such as Kevin O’Leary.

Frequently asked questions
It's hard to know this without seeing a track record but I would follow Principles by Ray Dalio since he's a credible investor running one of the world's most successful Hedge Funds. I would also suggest The Plain Bagel since Richard has his CFA and CFP licenses. He also works as an analyst for an investment management company.
Principles by Ray Dalio is one of my favorite YouTube channels, however, the content is educational in nature. You won't get any advice on specific investments or assets.
You should never blindly follow any investing advice without doing your own research and carefully reviewing the credibility of the person/account sharing the advice. It's best to speak with a professional advisor before making any investment decision.
