Now, we’ve already established in an earlier post that The World MoneyShow will be held in Orlando, the land of theme parks, from Jan. 29-Feb. 1, and that unlike most everything else down there, it’ll be absolutely free.
That means you can park yourself in front of some world-class speakers who’ll address the theme that’s dearest to most of our hearts: how to get richer in the new year. And if you watch the financial networks and show up at The World MoneyShow, you’ll learn that all those talking heads actually have bodies attached to them because many of the financial experts will be there — Peter Schiff, Sam Stovall, Dennis Gartman …
First is that our own Doug Gerlach, president of ICLUBcentral and the author of six books, including Investment Clubs for Dummies and The Armchair Millionaire, will be one of the speakers. Doug’s the editor-in-chief of the newsletters the SmallCap Informer and the Investor Advisory Service, which has landed on the Hulbert Financial Digest’s Investment Newsletter Honor Roll for the fifth year in a row.
Second is that the Gaylord Palms features live alligator feedings in its atrium and one is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Feb. 1, the last day of The World MoneyShow. If you click on this Gaylord Palms link, you’ll learn about some fish feedings elsewhere at the resort, but really, fish, when there are gators — please.
Following is Doug’s schedule during The World MoneyShow, and you may not feed him at any time during these events, even if he looks hungry, because that’s a job for a professional:
- Smarter Stock Selection for Bull or Bear Markets. Thursday, Jan. 30, 2014, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. Using methods incorporating the wisdom of the market’s greatest minds and honed by the nonprofit BetterInvesting organization for more than 60 years, investors can still outperform the market with a sensible buy-and-hold strategy. Doug will present the BetterInvesting structured approach to stock analysis used by Toolkit 6, focusing on the key factors that reveal a company’s true underlying growth prospects, quality, and realistic valuation potential, as used in both bull and bear markets.
- Small-Cap Stocks for 2014 and Beyond. Friday, Jan 31, 2014, 5:15 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. 2013 was a banner year for small-cap stocks, outpacing the broader market by a wide margin over much of the year. Doug will provide ideas for investors seeking the best small-company stocks to boost their portfolio performance in 2014. He’ll also reveal the rules of small-cap stock investing used by the SmallCap Informer’s analysts as well as outline common pitfalls to avoid in pinpointing small-company opportunities.
