The AAII San Francisco Chapter presents...

"Year 2014 Outlook for the Economy and the Dollar"

    Discussed by:

    Axel Merk
    President and Chief Investment Officer, Merk Investments

The outlook for the domestic and global economies is a big driver for markets for currencies and hard assets, as well as for domestic and international equity and debt securities. Axel Merk has talked to our chapter many times in the past, and for this presentation he returns to lend his expertise on the global economy, monetary policy and international investing.

"The Stock Split Anomaly"

    Discussed by:
    Neil Macneale
    Publisher, 2 for 1 Stock Split Newsletter

A stock split announcement can signal the probability that a company’s stock will outperform the market for up to three years after the announcement. Learn how a portfolio constructed solely of stock splits has outperformed the market by almost double over the last 17 years. Any “Main Street” investor can follow this easily understood and executed strategy with few transactions and build their own “stock split index fund.”
