Projecting Growth on the SSG From a Down Year | Doug Gerlach

Mon, June 22, 2020, 8:30 PM - 9:30 PM ET

The global health crisis has impacted markets and investors worldwide, causing an economic recession and depressing sales and earnings for many companies in 2020 (and potentially beyond), and presenting difficulties in projecting growth on the Stock Selection Guide. However, with the help of a spreadsheet and analysts’ estimates (or corporate guidance), it is possible to build a model for a company’s five-year EPS and revenues that can then be input into Toolkit 6 or SSGPlus. Doug will review his spreadsheet tool for calculating long-term growth rates for companies that are facing a down year for 2020, including where to gather analysts’ estimates in one step for an entire portfolio.

Stock Selection Guidelines for Unusual Times | Ken Kavula

Tue, June 23, 2020,  8:30 PM - 9:30 PM ET

Ken will be talking about how to handle those SSGs that just don't seem to work in today's volatile markets. The extreme movement of stock prices, the complete shutdown of major parts of the economy and the reluctance by many of us to gather in groups has made for some very unusual circumstances when it comes to looking at companies for our portfolios. Ken has some practical guidance for thinking through what might happen in the next five years and then applying some of those thoughts to the Stock Selection Guide. Keeping a clear head and applying our BetterInvesting principles should allow us to continue to invest regularly in high-quality companies that are selling at reasonable prices.

Investor Checklist | Kim Butcher

Wed, June 24, 2020, 8:30 PM - 9:30 PM ET

The SSG tells us a wealth of information about a stock. Why is it that every time you buy a stock the price then seems to go down? You don’t think you overlooked anything in your evaluation, did you miss something? The lowly checklist can help us not overlook items in a stock review that can lead to loss of our hard-earned money! Even Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger use a checklist.
