IV. Treasurer's Report

Treasurer passed out reports. Treasurer collected $___ from the members.

V. Old business

  1. Copies of updated stock list passed out to each member.

  3. After checking on Abbott labs, they do not meet the club’s goal of 20 percent growth per year.

VI. New business

  1. Changes to stock study worksheet were discussed. We agreed to add more to the reasons to purchase stock and expand this section. Agreed to continue discussion next meeting and keep fine-tuning stock study worksheet.

VII. Economic Report

  1. A very thorough and well-rounded report was given stating that the economy is good and that the market began to level last week. This may be due to the fact that the Fed is meeting again regarding interest rates. There probably will not be a change as evidenced by new home construction being down and future permits being down. Energy prices are expected to increase due to oil prices going up due to long hot summers in parts of the country (unfortunately not here).

VIII. No educational segment this month although sheet on beta passed out by our fearless leader.

  1. Joe did a comparably thorough and concise job reviewing the energy industry. Much revolved around fuel cells. See handout.
