Fort Bend County Libraries will present the program, “Using Your Library for Investment Research,” at George Memorial Library on Wednesday, June 12, beginning at 6:30 pm, in the Meeting Room of the library, located at 1001 Golfview in Richmond. The program will be repeated on Monday, June 17, beginning at 6:30 pm, at the Mamie George Branch Library, 320 Dulles Avenue in Stafford.
Joe Parks, Director of the Houston chapter of BetterInvesting™, will talk about the free investment resources at the library, such as Value Line Investment Survey and Morningstar, that can help you learn the “how,” “what,” and “why” of stock-market dynamics. These resources can help amateur and experienced investors gain an overview of the investing landscape, and learn about companies’ and industries’ performance, ranking changes, and price/earnings projections. Get reviews and commentary by professional analysts on approximately 1,700 of the most actively traded stocks, in more than 90 industries, with historical and current financial results.
Parks has been a member of BetterInvesting since 1994, and serves on the Volunteer Advisory Board for the organization. He has been an individual investor for more than 40 years. BetterInvesting is a non-profit association committed to helping people create successful, lifetime investments.
The program is free and open to the public. For more information, call the branch library at 281-238-2800 or the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
