Stock Analysis:

BetterInvesting (TM) will introduce you to a method of selecting companies for investment using the BetterInvesting(TM) Stock Selection Guide (SSG) form of analysis.

Topics include: investment terminology, sources of investment information, as well as understanding and interpreting financial information. Learn about growth portfolio management, diversification, and stock selection criteria to help make informed decisions regarding investments.

SSG analyses for several companies within one industry will be done using the BetterInvesting(TM) SSG Core on-line software. Three companies will be compared using the BetterInvesting(TM) Stock Comparison Guide (SCG). Short term access to trial version of the SSG Core software will be provided to students for use after class. Long term use of the on-line software requires membership in Betterinvesting(TM).
