Each month we study Investors Business Daily (IBD) CANSLIM stock investing principles. CANSLIM is an acronym for the 7 most important characteristics exhibited by the most powerful growth stocks identified in the IBD 100 year study thereof, BEFORE THEY LAUNCHED INTO THEIR HISTORIC PRICE GAINS! We mix educational discussions about chart reading skills and how to effectively use the many features in IBD and on the website with real time identification of current stocks for purchase. Join us and add to our base of investment knowledge and enthusiasm.
Effective September 2010, part of each of our monthly programs now includes a professional quality Powerpoint presentation prepared by and provided to us directly by Investors Business Daily. These presentations provide links to various additional (FREE for IBD subscribers) IBD website educational features.
Our Meetup was founded in October 2003. We are proud that ours was the 42nd IBD Meetup founded in the world. We work hard to improve your Meetup experience each month. Beginning with the October 2005 Meetup, we began using a laptop and projector to analyze stock charts as the primary focus of our Meetup. Effective October 2010 we use Marketsmith, the much enhanced successor to the IBD Daily Graphs Online (DGO) premium charting service, to analyze stocks. Using the annotation tools, we actually identify the cup (or other IBD chart patterns), handle, pivot price, and breakout point on any stock requested by group members.
You need not be a subscriber to IBD nor Marketsmith in order to participate in our group. At no cost, you do however, need to register as a member of our group on this website in order to confirm your attendance at our monthly meetings and receive the e-mails announcing the meeting and agenda, usually 3 per month including reminders. Your e-mail address will not be used by IBD nor provided to any other vendors as a result of registering.
The only cost is your time and an all inclusive $28 (cash only) fee covering your meal, room rental, and material expense (mostly photocopies). This is our cost, which we keep as low as possible while still meeting in a quality learning environment. Occasional special events may have different pricing as announced. Our meetings are normally on the fourth Wednesday of each month except for November and December, due to the holidays, and occasional special event meetings. Those dates are announced accordingly and posted on this website.
Many first time attenders have expressed astonishment at the professionalism of our monthly Meetup agenda content and presentation quality. Education like this, and camaraderie with fellow investors, for only the cost of a meal is a real value! Learn the IBD "top down approach" to finding the most powerful stocks in the market today. Come share your time and talent with friendly fellow IBD fans.
Your Executive Committee
IN RELENTLESS PURSUIT OF PERFECTION IN YOUR MEETUP EXPERIENCE!
