Description

The 69th Annual BetterInvesting National Convention (BINC) initially scheduled for Dallas, Texas, was canceled due to circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 virus, but you can still get a taste of BINC by attending Virtual BINC 2020! Through the hard work of our talented volunteers and staff, we have arranged a series of educational presentations conducted by nationally recognized BetterInvesting instructors to share their knowledge of how to invest in today’s turbulent stock market. BetterInvesting understands this can be a frustrating time for investors, and we want all of our members to be prepared to take advantage of the market recovery as it happens.

Virtual BINC 2020 is a free event, exclusive to all BetterInvesting members and will include four webcast webinars scheduled for June 22, 23, 24, and 25 at 8:30 PM (EDT). Each webcast webinar will include a unique presentation with each presenter addressing how to successfully navigate today’s volatile stock market by being disciplined and relying on fundamentals.

Presentations:

Projecting Growth on the SSG From a Down Year | Doug Gerlach
Mon, June 22, 2020, 8:30 PM - 9:30 PM ET

The global health crisis has impacted markets and investors worldwide, causing an economic recession and depressing sales and earnings for many companies in 2020 (and potentially beyond), and presenting difficulties in projecting growth on the Stock Selection Guide. However, with the help of a spreadsheet and analysts’ estimates (or corporate guidance), it is possible to build a model for a company’s five-year EPS and revenues that can then be input into Toolkit 6 or SSGPlus. Doug will review his spreadsheet tool for calculating long-term growth rates for companies that are facing a down year for 2020, including where to gather analysts’ estimates in one step for an entire portfolio.

Stock Selection Guidelines for Unusual Times | Ken Kavula
Tue, June 23, 2020,  8:30 PM - 9:30 PM ET

Ken will be talking about how to handle those SSGs that just don't seem to work in today's volatile markets. The extreme movement of stock prices, the complete shutdown of major parts of the economy and the reluctance by many of us to gather in groups has made for some very unusual circumstances when it comes to looking at companies for our portfolios. Ken has some practical guidance for thinking through what might happen in the next five years and then applying some of those thoughts to the Stock Selection Guide. Keeping a clear head and applying our BetterInvesting principles should allow us to continue to invest regularly in high-quality companies that are selling at reasonable prices.

Investor Checklist | Kim Butcher
Wed, June 24, 2020, 8:30 PM - 9:30 PM ET

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.
