The P/E Ratio: Getting the Most Bang for Your Investment Buck
I was shopping online at one of my favorite stores a few weeks ago when I came across a winter coat for my two-year-old son that I fell in love with. It was gray camouflage and insulated in every way, shape, and form that I could think of. Padded here, extra lining there - and a chin guard to boot. I loved everything about it - except for the price. It was a great jacket with a price tag that was, well, a bit over the top. So, I waited. I checked back the following week. Same great winter coat, same high price. No go. Then, over the weekend, I checked again. Same great jacket - but this time, at a much better price. In fact, the price had been slashed by about 40 percent.
Now they had me. There isn't too much I love more than picking out toys and clothing for my son. I may be wearing ratty old, faded jeans circa 1997, but my kid, now that's a different story. And, as we're an outdoorsy family living in a part of the country where the arctic chill begins sometime around mid-November and can last well into April, it's not so far off the mark to spend a bit of the green stuff to make sure we've got ourselves covered - literally - all winter long.
Great Coat. Great Deal.
New "Club Hub" Education Page
Tax Season is always a hectic time of year for investment club treasurers, especially if they're new to the job.
To help ease the burden of running an investment club, we've revamped our "Club Hub" pages at www.iclub/com/clubs to make it easier for you and your fellow members to start your club off on the right foot, and manage and maintain your club throughout the yearly cycle.
You'll find sample partnership agreements, examples of bylaws and operating procedures, and answers to important questions, like how to prepare for your annual audit and whether or not your club should have a business plan.
Check out the new Club Hub and keep your club healthy and successful!
