Several stock portfolio management tools exist that are Internet-based. The main choice a potential investor must make is to use a free service such as Morningstar or use a pay-based subscription such as Charles Schwab. Either choice provides the potential investor with stock portfolio investment tools. However, pay services such as Charles Schwab include access to additional tools and data such as stock screens to help in investment decisions.
