You claim to be producing analysis on 1,000 stocks. In my experience, producing anything worthwhile will take a team something like one team leader, two senior people, and a bunch of cheap but bright more junior people. Assuming you are getting them from a low labour cost country you MIGHT be able to do it for $10,000 a month. If you did it in the UK you would have to pay that just to the team leader.
If you are spending any less, I KNOW that you are publishing junk.
Add to that the cost of running another 2,000 sites, and there is no way you are doing anything worthwhile to visitors on thousands of dollars a month.
You can reduce the cost by licensing in the content (in which case it is unlikely to be unique) or by auto-generating (in which case its still junk).
Stuff like quotes and charts is not unique either AND it means you are competing head on against Google, Yahoo, MSN, CNN, Reuters and lots of other established sites.
If I am wrong sticky mail me some urls.
So given the combination of non-unique content in a competitive niche, plus possibly some low quality unique content, I think your SEO has been quite successful.
