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) - to determine whether a company is a good, quality company that is trading at a reasonable price. The class is also recommended for investors who want to review the basics.  We'll cove selecting the best companies, determining a fair price, estimating future growth and the risks and total return to be expected.  In the afternoon, the class will participate in completing SSGs on selected companies.  Intro to Investing is highly recommended prior to this class, but is not required.

The class consists of morning and afternoon sessions, with a 45 minute lunch break. Lunch is on your own. You may bring your own lunch or purchase a lunch at a nearby restaurant. 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.
