This is an informal group of people interested in value investing. If you have interest in value investing we can discuss ideas, books, articles, and white (research) papers. Let’s meet over coffee or drinks and see where everyone’s investment interests are. Remaining on premises where discussions are held or participating online on meetup.com webpages constitutes agreement to the terms of the Liability Waiver below.
Some of the topics of interest may be: - Value super investors and what they teach (Graham, Buffet, Einhorn, Greenblatt, Cliff Asness, Pobrai etc.) - Classical value investing approach and its modern alternatives, e.g. quantitative value approaches - Special situations and how value investing may apply to them - Interaction of value and other investment styles, e.g. value and momentum, or value and quality - Current market conditions and indicators
- Where to look for value
WHEREAS the group known as the “Calgary Value Investing Meetup Group” (the “Group”) has been created so that participants can take part in informal discussions regarding possible investment opportunities.
AND WHEREAS the Group believes that it is to the mutual benefit of the participants that there be an agreement between all the participants that participation in the Group and all Group discussions, be it in person or online on meetup.com webpages, be free and open and that the participants can offer views without fear of liability or legal consequences arising from discussions offered to other participants;
