6 March 2008 – 4 PM
BI Lab (room 2211 in the University Library)
Financial markets – they’re like roller coasters – rocketing up, plunging down, leveling out and any variation in between. For those involved, it can be a gut-wrenching and exhilarating experience. People gamble their entire life savings on a chance to win it big. Sometimes it pays off, sometimes it doesn’t. You should make sure to do your homework before beginning any venture to ensure a solid investment decision.
The Library would like to invite faculty and staff to an open session with Professors John Howat and David Porter of the Finance & Business Law Department. Howat and Porter have graciously agreed to share their knowledge of stocks and mutual funds and answer any questions that you may have about investing.
The session will also highlight library resources that help navigate the seemingly complicated financial world, namely Morningstar Library Edition, Standard & Poor’s NetAdvantage, and ValueLine Investment Survey. These well-respected investment information sources offer guidance in educating yourself about companies, industries and markets.
So mark your calendars and be sure to join us on March 6 at 4 PM! If you can’t make it right at 4 PM or you can’t stay the whole time, that’s OK too. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kyle Naff, Business Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 472.5519.
Please note: This session will not tell you which stocks or funds to choose. Our speakers are very knowledgeable in personal finance, but they are not licensed investment professionals. They may be able to guide you in the right direction, but it’s up to you to decide where you’d like your money to go.
