Hi — I'm Corey McLaughlin, and I've worked as a writer and editor for the past 15 years, somehow failing to win any major awards, but writing well and consistently enough to make a living.

Click here to get in contact with me, or send an e-mail to corey.mclaughlin@gmail.com.

Today I work as a full-time writer and editor at Stansberry Research, the leading independent investment advisory firm in the world and part of the publicly-traded company MarketWise. I write and edit a daily financial newsletter read by more than 650,000 subscribers globally.

I'm also co-host of the Stansberry Investor Hour podcast, a show that provides weekly market commentary and interviews notable figures in the financial world and beyond.

I'm also a senior contributing writer for the award-winning Baltimore magazine and a regular contributor to The Baltimore Banner, a non-profit, all-digital news outlet covering Maryland. 

I earned an M.A. in writing from Johns Hopkins University in 2021 and a B.A. in journalism and a B.A. in anthropology from Penn State University in 2008.

My written work has appeared in print or online for these publications:

  • The New York Times
  • Newsday (N.Y.)
  • Baltimore magazine
  • The Baltimore Banner
  • Johns Hopkins Magazine
  • Chesapeake Bay Magazine
  • Stansberry Research
  • Stansberry NewsWire
  • DailyWealth
  • Economy & Markets
  • Empire Financial Daily
  • American Consequences
  • Big Market Trends
  • Chaikin Analytics PowerFeed
  • RealClear Markets
  • Lacrosse Magazine
  • Inside Lacrosse Magazine
  • World Lacrosse

I got my start in the writing and editing business as a sports writer in college at Penn State, where I covered the football team and pretty much every other sport for The Daily Collegian. After graduating in 2008, I landed my dream job at Newsday, the paper I grew up reading as a sports-loving kid on Long Island. Two years later, I moved to Baltimore, Maryland, where I live with my family.

A lot of the work I do tends to focus on why people do the things they do, how things (like the stock market or the economy) really work, and I strive to share insight from interesting personalities in all walks of life. From professional athletes and coaches to hedge-fund managers to lesser-known people looking to make a difference on the streets of Baltimore city.

Outside of writing or editing, notably, I produced a one-on-one long-form video interview with New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick. Parts of it aired on sports networks ESPN and NFL Network and the piece garnered media attention from Yahoo, NBC Sports, USA Today, Fox Sports, Sports Illustrated, Barstool Sports and the Boston Globe.

There's more, but I'll leave it there. Have a story idea? Think I can help you with a project? Have a question or comment about something? Please get in touch and I'll get back to you in a timely manner.
