Please join us on Saturday, February 25, for our 2017 Breakfast with the Champions event at Sun City, Roseville. Our speaker, Mike Torbenson has extensive knowledge of BetterInvesting and the BetterInvesting method of investing. He is from the Puget Sound Chapter in Seattle, Washington. Mike will present 3 topics that will add to your knowledge and help improve your portfolio.

What is Cloud Computing - and How Does Business Benefit From It?

Everyone is talking about cloud computing as if we all understand it. Mike explains in simple, easy-to-understand examples what cloud computing is and how we can benefit from it as an investor and consumer.

Importance of a Company's Strategic Business Plan

We buy high-quality growth companies. How confident are you that growth will continue? How do you monitor a company's quality? Both are improved by understanding a company's Strategic Growth Plan. This session explains what those plans look like, where you find them, how to use them to focus your ability to monitor a company's quality.

How to Buy Low and Sell High

The business cycle of a company is the key to knowing when to buy low and sell high. What is the business cycle? How do we measure or track a company's business cycle? How does section 4 of the SSG use this information to record and track our judgments for the top and bottom of the business cycle? This class provides the background information and tools you need to build confidence into your valuation judgements and achieve 15%+ return.
