A lovely afternoon was had by all, with representatives from 8 clubs from Brighton and around the South East:
- ALPS Investment Club
- Blue Chip Stockings Investment Club
- Hove Investment Club
- Sensatus Investment Club
- Skruffies Investment Club
- Two Piers Investment Club
- Vine Investment Club
- Toyboyz Investment Club
Michael Carstens from the Vine Investment Club kicked off proceedings with a presentation about the aims and goals of his investment club and a brief look at the tools and strategies they use to select stocks.
This was followed by a very informative talk from Dary McGovern looking at the specific criteria he looks for when picking stocks, this included a whirlwind tour on reading company accounts - Income, Balance Sheet and Cash Flow statement, followed by ratios (PE, PEG) and a quick look at the use of support and resistance trend lines.
It was great to meet local clubs and share ideas, experiences, approaches and strategies
The last couple of years have been challenging for clubs with the transition from a bull market to recession and the afternoon provided some great tips on how clubs can adapt and survive to prosper in these volatile market conditions.
We are planning to hold another club meet up in the summer. If you are interested in attending or would like to find out more, please Contact Us.
Everyone is welcome, whether you are thinking about setting up a club or a member of an established club ... we look forward to seeing you in Brighton!
