Startup Idea #55: Aggregation services for Covestor

Related to my last post, there is another startup opportunity: re imagining the type of successful blog aggregation services such as TechMeme, Technorati, Outside.In et al for other democratizing platforms.

For Covestor, if everyone can now be a fund manager, there is value in finding the best fund managers from the rest pf the pool. Of course, this is something I believe Covestor will do itself. However there is always value in chaining the blogs of these different fund managers, like what TechMeme is doing. The interface however could be stock driven, rather than news driven. For example, under the Google stock, we can see which fund managers are blogging about it.

Manipulating the tags associated with the Covestor platform is also potentially another game changer. If we can massively distribute these tags to other blogs outside of Covestor, the unlocked value can be huge. For instance, a blogger on Wordpress can tag his blog post about Google with the Covestor Google tag. The tag will then draw in the relevant info from Covestor such as number of fund managers buying this stock, its movement for the past week et al. Using this simple methodology, we can create the Technorati equivalent for Covestor tags.

Wonder if they have an API?
