"Doing and Understanding the Stock Selection Guide"

This program year the Kansas City Chapter of BetterInvesting will be using BetterInvesting software to teach the Stock Selection Guide (SSG). Emphasis will be on understanding the SSG, how to identify good quality growth stocks, where and how to exercise judgment to determine the correct price to pay for a stock if purchasing, using suggested research sites found on the internet, and importing the data using MorningStar Stock Data Services.

The Stock Selection Guide II (SSG) Class is a continuation of SSG I. SSG II completes the back of the Guide. Evaluating Management is analyzed and examined more thoroughly and it is on the back that we determine a P/E and price range for an acceptable buying opportunity, calculate the Relative Value and PEG, determine the amount of risk, if bought, estimate the average yield, and the compound total return.

SSG I & II can also be used as a refresher course if you need a brush up on your understanding of the SSG. Please bring pens or pencils and calculators to each class.

The Stock Selection Handbook will be available for purchase at all classes for $15, or you can purchase it online at the BetterInvesting Store before attending classes. Everyone will receive a printed PowerPoint handout of each presentation.
