The stock is also evaluated using the Online SSG's Comparison Guide. After an open discussion, decisions are made to bypass or purchase the stock presented. The pick 1 stock for November 2021 was Malibu Boats (MDUU).  (An indepth description of the Stock Selection Guide is presented in the Partner Packet. )

Many investors are not confident about their ability to do accurate technical analysis of quality growth stocks. They tend to rely too much on historical data to forecast future sales and earnings growth. They also make mistakes in predicting future P/E Ratios. These errors in judgment often result in inaccurate calculation of Upside/Downside Ratios, resulting in poor investing decisions. If this sounds like YOU, then please register to attend this educational event. The Directors of the Central PA Chapter of BetterInvesting will cover all sections of the Stock Selection Guide (SSG) and answer any questions you may have.
