The Investment Club Way
Saturday, October 1, 2022

(Core Class I)
This class offered on-line through Colorado Free University
9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Prerequisite: Introduction to Investment Basics or equivalent

This full-day workshop introduces the beginning investor to the tool used by investment clubs - the Stock Selection Guide (SSG).  The SSG is used to determine whether a company is a good, quality company that is trading at a reasonable price. The sessions cover selecting the best companies, determining a fair price, estimating future growth and the risks and total return to be expected for a company.  The final session will be an opportunity to practice using the principles learned to complete an SSG.  Introduction to Investing is highly recommended prior to this class, but is not required.
The sessions are:

  •     Selecting the Best Companies - Learn to recognize high-quality growth stocks using the Stock Selection Guide.
  •     Determining a Fair Price - Continue the examination of the Stock Selection Guide to determine the potential return of a stock.
  •     Estimating Future Growth - This session provides guidance on how to make reasonable, conservative projections of future sales and earnings growth rates
  •     Estimating Future P/Es - This session provides guidelines to help you make reasonable projections for future high and low P/Es and determine if the stock is a buy, sell, or hold.
  •     Practice Session - Practice what you have learned. Using current information, this interactive practice session will reinforce the principles provided in the day's sessions.

Whether you use Toolkit, the on-line Core SSG, or the on-line SSG Plus, you will gain a better understanding of how the Stock Selection Guide helps you determine whether the company is a quality company trading at a fair price.

The Rocky Mountain Chapter of BetterInvesting exists to serve and support the BetterInvesting clubs and individual members in Colorado, Utah, New Mexico and Wyoming. The Board of Directors is made up of a great group of dedicated people. We work hard to offer classes, the model investment club, our annual Investors Education Day, club visits and other services. We meet monthly online. We strive to keep our meetings short and focused on our mission -- serving you.

To continue these kinds of education programs, we need some new volunteers and board members.  What we need most are associate directors, who serve one year in a non-voting capacity and then, if they are interested, move up to a full director position the following year. Being an associate director gives you a chance to see how the board operates before making a commitment to a longer term

Evaluating Mutual Funds and ETFs

Wednesday, August 24, 2022
Wednesday, November 9, 2022
Offered on-line through Colorado Free University

6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Do you want to increase your knowledge of Mutual Funds and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)?  Do you think additional knowledge about these investments will improve your personal or deferred retirement account portfolio?  Have you wondered how you could compare different funds to determine the best “fit” for your portfolio?  Do you know where to find pertinent information about these funds?  If these are questions are in the back of your mind, we invite you to attend this class.

The two experienced instructors will expand your knowledge and guide you to reference material that will assist you in selecting the appropriate mutual funds and ETFs to suit your own portfolio.  You will learn how to evaluate these funds and, with continued practice, you will be capable of identifying the funds which will increase the value of your portfolios.  Investing is a life-time venture, and this class will provide a basic foundation to enable you to initiate or improve your knowledge of both mutual funds & ETFs.
