The AAII St. Louis Chapter presents...

A Structured Approach to Fundamental Stock Analysis

    Discussed by:

    Doug Gerlach
    Editor-in-Chief, Investor Advisory Service and SmallCap Informer

While the mechanisms (and machinations) of the markets have changed mightily since Benjamin Graham first came up with a practical method for analyzing stocks, or even when Peter Lynch racked up big wins picking equities for Fidelity’s Magellan Fund, at least this one thing remains true: companies that deliver constant profits for shareholders will see their share prices increase accordingly over the long term. But what are the keys to successful fundamental stock selection? Doug Gerlach, president of ICLUBcentral Inc., and editor-in-chief of its Investor Advisory Service (IAS) newsletter, will present the structured approach to stock analysis used by his IAS analysts and customers. He will focus on key factors that reveal a company’s true underlying growth and quality, as well as how to determine a realistic valuation model for its stock.
