The Rocky Mountain Chapter Model Investment Club online meeting begins at 6:45 pm Mountain Time, with about 15 minutes for the business portion of the model club, followed by an education presentation and a stock evaluation using judgments from the audience.

Focused on small and mid-sized companies as defined by BetterInvesting, small companies are often hard to find and evaluate. These potential gems have annual revenues of less than $10 Billion, and may not be widely followed by analysts.

Join us to learn more about running an investment club, selecting small and mid-sized companies and managing a portfolio.
