— Despite the recent volatility on Wall Street, BetterInvesting members, who follow a disciplined approach to investing no matter what the stock market is doing, have been “champing at the bit” to invest in high-quality stocks that are selling at good prices, said BetterInvesting CEO Kamie Zaracki today in an interview on St. Louis Public Radio’s “St. Louis on the Air” program. Liz Mills, a volunteer director with BetterInvesting’s St. Louis Chapter, also appeared on the program.
BetterInvesting’s investment clubs continue to take advantage of current stock prices to build long-term wealth. Over the past two months, club favorites have included Apple (ticker: AAPL), Ford Motor Co. (F) and Caterpillar (CAT), according to online club accounting site myICLUB.com.
Investment clubs not only are a great way to learn the fundamentals of investing but also create a built-in support network, Mills added. Fellow members can help keep investors on track by reinforcing BetterInvesting’s simple, time-tested principles: Invest regularly, invest in high-quality growth stocks for the long term, reinvest all earnings and dividends and diversify your holdings.
