I recently got an account with Intelliscope. According to the description at its own web site, Intelliscope "provides access to in-depth opinion and analysis from respected industry experts, along with insightful analyst commentary and coverage of breaking news and important events."
I am very happy about the service after some initial tests. It is mainly a one-stop source for all research reports and market commentaries. In particular, I can even find enough readings for my small cap holdings like TALK, OCA and PPD, which, previously, I can only rely on S&P reports, SEC filings, sporadic commentary from resources like Fool.com and newsgroup discussions to form investment opinions.
I have to say, however, Intelliscope's search interface is not simple and intuitive enough. For a library of research reports, it should allow easy allow search by ticker. Instead, it forces user to use a primitive way to look up the ticker and convert it to company name, before a search can be done. Other than this small inconvenience, I found this service tremendously valuable.
More information about the service:
