Does watching the stock market reports on TV have you feeling a tinge jumpy these days? Forget the yelping from the talking heads and get a more reasoned viewpoint from experts who can help you uncover smart, strategic investing opportunities at The MoneyShow Orlando, running Feb. 7-10, at the Omni Resort at Championsgate.
BetterInvesting will have two representatives in Orlando: CEO Kamie Zaracki and Doug Gerlach, president of ICLUBcentral and editor in chief of the award-winning Investor Advisory Service stock newsletter, as well as the SmallCap Informer newsletter.
Kamie will speak at three events during The MoneyShow:
Pockets of Opportunity & Perils: Feb. 7, 10:05 a.m. – 10:45 a.m. What areas of the market offer the best growth potential in the year ahead and what sectors should women investors be especially wary of? Kamie joins a panel of investment advisers and market experts to take a hard look at the prospects that have captured the interest and imagination of investors over the past couple of years.
Feb. 8, 3 p.m. – 3:45 p.m. You’ve collected many stock ideas to help build your portfolio. But how do you evaluate them for long-term growth and ROI? In this session, Kamie shows you how to apply four common-sense steps to identify quality companies and assess whether its stock has the potential to generate a high return for you.
Kamie will be joined by Doug for this two-part session:
Feb. 10, 9 a.m. – noon
Four Common-Sense Steps to Evaluate Stocks for Growth, Quality, and Return: A repeat of the Feb. 8 session.
Stock Clinic: Stocks to Watch and Stocks to Avoid for 2019: As the bull market continues in its ninth year, where are the best —and the worst — opportunities for equity investors in 2019? In addition, Doug will offer on-the-spot analyses of stocks suggested by attendees.
Along with BetterInvesting’s Interactive Stock Clinic, Doug will present these sessions at The MoneyShow:
Feb. 9, 8 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. Small-cap stocks are often unloved and ignored by investors, getting a bad rap as risky and volatile. But well-managed businesses will see their shares perform no matter their market cap, and savvy investors can boost their returns by including an allocation of growing, high-quality small-caps. Doug knows the small-cap market and what drives successful investing in this segment. In this session, he’ll review his newsletter team’s top picks for 2019 and beyond, focusing on small companies with catalysts for solid growth and attractive valuations.
Feb. 9, 11:45 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. Doug will be a speaker in the Lunch Panel. Each year in December, the MoneyShow editorial team asks the nation’s leading financial newsletter advisors for their favorite stocks for the coming year. Conducted for over 35 years, this always-popular and widely anticipated annual report features the advisory industry’s most trusted and respected experts known for their high-quality research and long-term track records of success. Whether it’s a potential ten-bagger or discovering under-valued gems, this expert panel’s goal is to give you solid investing ideas that you can use in the markets right away.
$109 per person if purchased by Jan. 17; $139 per person if purchased after Jan. 17. Includes a hot lunch.
Feb. 9, 5:15 p.m. – 6 p.m. Wall Street’s traditional advice about investing in stocks regularly underserves individual investors, focusing on the “flavor of the day” or “top headline” picks that don’t stand the test of time but generate huge commissions for brokers. Smart individuals who bypass the Street and utilize a tested, low-churn, quality-stock-based method of picking stocks using common-sense fundamental analysis techniques can outperform the market. Doug will cut through the noise and present an approach to stock analysis that can be completed in seven simple steps, focusing on the key factors that reveal a company’s true underlying growth prospects, quality, and realistic valuation potential.
