Picking the Healthy Stocks

Picking the Healthy Stocks - ShareInvestor Academy Module SA203

At times, investors purchase stocks based on recommendations from gurus, brokers, family & friends etc. Purchasing stocks without committing to any self-research may lead to picking bad performance stocks, which results in monetary losses. As such, we will need to know an effective and time-saving method of performing fundamental analysis on a myriad of stocks.

The Conservative Net Asset Value (CNAV) can be used to determine the value of a stock in 15 minutes, using information from only 4 to 5 pages of the annual report. With this, we are able to make a wise investment decision with a minimal amount of company financial information.

In this workshop, you will learn the workings of the CNAV. We will demonstrate the use of the various financial ratios in ShareInvestor WebPro and share with you the criteria used to screen for healthy stocks.

Learning Points

  • Identification of mistakes when picking stocks
  • Learn the effective method to value a stock with minimal financial information
  • How to calculate the Conservative Net Asset Value (CNAV)
  • The tools which you can use to reduce the time spent on stocks research
  • How to maximise your investment returns with a good stocks portfolio
