RIP, Smart Money

By JLP | August 15, 2012

Received the most recent issue of Smart Money yesterday. This note was attached:

Smart Money Magazine Farewell Notice

Smart Money Magazine Last Issue Cover

I’m kinda sad to see it go.

It’s just another indication of just how difficult the publishing industry has become.

    will they still retain their online website or is that going away as well?

    Your post caught me by complete surprise since I have not yet received my September issue. I always felt that SM was aimed at somewhat more experienced investors than Money (to which I have also subscribed for many years).

    I like Kiplingers and Money more than Smart Money anyway. (I get all three)

    Many of their articles had become regurgitated fluff from other publications. I was hoping for a bit more edge than they provided so I’m not sad to see it go.

    I am saddened to see it go. They’ve had their ups and downs, but along the way, some really great columns and writers have been there. Paul Sturm’s stock screen column was always great and thought-provoking, for example. And they regularly had great writers like Roger Lowenstein.

    I’d been wondering why Smartmoney, unlike Money, Fortune and others, didn’t come out with a full iPad app, and this answers the question – they are folding the monthly publication. Apparently, they’re keeping the website, and that may still be reason for them to come up with a decent iOS app, but I certainly don’t think it’s quite the same thing. RIP.
