                                   SESSION DESCRIPTIONS

“ESTIMATING GROWTH”---Intermediate --- Growth impacts both the quality of a company and the value of its stock. The first question we’ll explore briefly “What is growth exactly?” After seeing how sales growth is the basis for increasing a company’s EPS and ultimately its stock return, we’ll explore specific techniques to improve your projections of future sales and EPS for a company. Then we will use case studies to show how these techniques work in helping you evaluate stocks and manage your stock portfolio.

“INVESTING WITH A CHECK LIST” --- Beginner --- The SSG tells us a wealth of information about a stock. Why is it that every time you buy a stock the price then seems to go down? You don’t think you overlooked anything in your evaluation, did you miss something? The lowly checklist can help us not overlook items in a stock review that can lead to loss of our hard-earned money! Even Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger use a checklist!

“WHAT A CLUB TREASURER NEEDS TO DO” -- Intermediate --- The facilitator will demonstrate the on-line version of Club Accounting and the most used functions for monthly reports.

“LOOKING FOR NEW SMALL STOCK IDEAS --- Beginner --- The facilitator will look at several sources of ideas for new stocks to study. He’ll talk about the definition of small stock vs. small-cap stock and lead you, step-by-step, through some of the screening products readily available to BetterInvesting members. Part of the class will be devoted to using screeners in real time and developing a comprehensive list of stocks to study.

THE FRONT SIDE OF THE SSG USING SSGPlus --- Beginners --- This class will proceed step by step through the process of completing the front side of the Stock Selection Guide (SSG). It will review the information provided automatically in the data feed and review the reasoning involved in making the judgment decisions required. Suggested boundaries and parameters will also be provided.

“COMPANY DEBT”--- Intermediate --- Our BetterInvesting stock evaluation and portfolio management tools are based almost entirely on a company’s income and expenses as reflected on its Income Statement. This class will help you take the next step in company evaluation by looking at ways to examine what a company owes (its debt) and how company debt impacts a company’s quality and could impact future profitability and earnings.  Discussions will define various types of debt and “debt-like” obligations and then examine ways to evaluate debt using financial ratios and things like “interest coverage.”

“STOCK PORTFOLIO MANAGEMENT”--- Advanced --- Stock evaluation is a vital part of successful investing, but it’s just the first step. How well you manage your “team” of stock holdings is what ultimately determines your success. In this class,  you'll hear explainations of why it’s best to make portfolio management decisions by focusing on the potential impact on your overall portfolio of a decision to buy, hold or sell a stock, rather than just looking at a single stock in isolation.  Then the facilitator will use practical examples to demonstrate how this portfolio-centered decision-making methodology can simplify your investment decisions and take emotion out of portfolio management, especially the dreaded decision to sell.

“FINDING GREAT STOCKS WITH THE CSC METHOD” --- Intermediate -- Have you ever heard of the CSC method for choosing stocks? Charlie Munger has said you only need 3 types of stocks in a portfolio; Carnivore’s, Spinoffs and Copycat stocks. Join others to learn what resources are available for free to find these types of stocks. !

“SELLING DISCIPLINES AND SOME NEW TRIGGERS”--- Advanced ---Starting with a classic review of When to Sell based on BetterInvesting’s tried and true methods, the class will then move to some stimulating new ideas which add to the discipline and which might have the potential to add a percentage or two to your total return. We’ll discuss the meaning of relative return and show how to easily calculate that value using free tools available on the internet. All the while, we’ll be keeping an eye on preserving capital and long-term capital gains. Finally, we’ll also look at selling triggers involving sudden drops in quality as me.

"MANAGING A PORTFOLIO, THE BETTERINVESTING WAY” --- Advanced--Using the BetterInvesting tools and Manifest Investing tools, the facilitator will demonstrate an easy straightforward way of managing a personal or club portfolio. Using target values for important measures such as aggregate sales growth and financial stability; he will show how to be aware when your portfolio is out of balance. The class will include a look at a few real portfolios from the Atlanta area as well as peek at some Mid-Michigan portfolios from some of its model clubs.

“UNDERSTANDING ROE and ROIC, WHAT'S HIDDEN IN PLAIN SITE” --- Beginners --- Interest rates have gone up and will continue. Are you aware of how a company’s debit will affect ROE? Do you use the ratio ROIC? Capital allocation is a function of management and stock returns are enhanced with great ROIC.  

“THE BACK SIDE OF THE SSG USING THE SSGPlus ONLINE” --- Beginners ---This class wilL proceed step by step through the process of completing the back side of the Stock Selection Guide (SSG). It will review the information provided automatically in the data feed and review the reasoning involved in making the judgment decisions required. Suggested boundaries and parameters will also be provided.
