Giving up on the Banks? Think again! Emanuel Althuis and Marcia Elgie from our Kelowna User group provide valuable insights on how holding selected banks can grow your wealth over time through the magic of dividends and compounding. Emanuel identified the three banks he’s held for years and how he’s prospered from the dividends. You don’t want to miss their report on the Banks (Investment) industry group.

Business Services (Misc) is a diverse group. Sandy Cook, our Kelowna User Group Leader, breaks it down for us and identifies one of the leaders, Dirt Environmental (DRT) using VectorVest’s exclusive Performance Graph.

Looking for a simpler way to trade? Burlington User Group members under the guidance of Leader Petra Hess are having success using her 3-EMA/8-EMA crossover method.

Is your overall portfolio heading in the right direction? A unique feature in VectorVest is the ability to take the average price and other values of all our stocks and plot them on a graph just as though we were plotting an individual stock. We can add technical studies as well as VectorVest’s exclusive fundamental indicators. But do we ever use it that way? Mike Simonato does. A VectorVest member from Toronto, Mike shows how he uses the WatchList Graph to know when his portfolio isn’t going in the right direction and he might have to change a stock or two to lift the average values in his portfolio.

Do you know the five characteristics of a Game Changer stock? A Game Changer is a stock that has the potential to achieve monster gains that can transform your investing results. Stocks like Netflix and Costco in the US, Stella-Jones and Constellation Software in CA. Stan Heller, VectorVest Canada Consultant, explains how to find the next Game Changer using five characteristics set out by our Founder Dr. Bart DiLiddo in his classic little green investment book, Stocks, Strategies and Common Sense. He also shows you how to plot your graph with a 10/40 weekly simple moving average to quickly spot potential candidates on the rise.
