The complexity of the last few months’ financial landscape has reinforced the importance of financial literacy. BetterInvesting® members are coming out in droves and making that statement loud and clear. The Online Stock Study events continue to grow in popularity month over month. This month’s event attracted more than 600 members, a 34% increase over the previous month. For an interview with a BetterInvesting expert, please call 877-275-6242.
- BetterInvesting members continue to benefit in multiple ways from the Online Stock Study Series. On Wednesday, January 7, Brian Altschul discussed W.W. Grainger (NYSE: GWW) to an audience of over 600 BetterInvesting members, an increase of 34% over the previous month’s record-breaking attendance. Each presenter brings his/her own style to the stock studies, blending the review and analysis of a company with insights to features of the BetterInvesting Online Tools, ICLUBcentral’s Toolkit, and many other research and data resources. In this session, Altschul highlighted the use of Preferred Procedure and the ease of use of this method using Toolkit5. Attendees participated by determining judgment issues of estimated sales growth, profit margin, high and low price to earnings ratio and low price.
Online Stock Study sessions are conducted by BetterInvesting’s best volunteer educators and provide step-by-step instructions on completing a Stock Selection Guide® (SSG®) – including sales and earnings history and forecasts, the evaluation of management, the price-earning history and forecasts and the stock’s five-year potential. Attendees participate in the decision-making process using polling during the session. They can also type in questions that are posed to the presenter at opportune times. This valuable member benefit is open to all members at no additional cost.
