“We are not brokers, we do not sell anything. Our principle is just to educate,” she says in a recent, morning drive-time radio interview on KFYO 790 AM.
Kaye is the vice president of BetterInvesting’s West Texas Chapter. Both the radio station and the chapter are based in Lubbock.
She listed some BetterInvesting principles for her audience:
- invest regularly;
- reinvest all earnings and dividends;
- buy growth stocks, and equity mutual funds if applicable;
- and diversify your investments.
“We never try to time the market. We just buy for the long term. We buy good quality companies, we hold them for the long term until they don’t meet our needs. By we, I mean BetterInvesting,” Kaye said, explaining how members of the nonprofit organization build their portfolios either as individuals or as members of investment clubs.
With those quick pointers, washed down with a swig of coffee, West Texans had all they needed to get their day and their economic future off to a great start.
BetterInvesting is a national nonprofit organization that has been empowering individual investors since 1951. Founded in Detroit, the association (formerly known as National Association of Investors Corporation) was borne out of the conviction that anyone can become a successful long-term investor by following commonsense investing practices. BetterInvesting has helped more than 5 million people become better, more informed investors by providing webinars, in-person events, easy-to-use online tools for analyzing stocks, a monthly magazine and a community of volunteers and like-minded investors.
