MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., April 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Individual investors can cut through the mountains of confusing information facing them and learn what really matters in selecting stocks and other investments, planning for retirement, managing a portfolio and more at the BetterInvesting National Convention, May 14-17 in San Jose, Calif.
The BetterInvesting National Convention helps empower Main Street investors by providing commonsense long-term strategies that draw on more than 60 years of education. BetterInvesting's message since its founding in 1951 is that anyone can learn to be a successful investor.
"With dozens of sessions serving a range of investors, attendees can tailor the event to fit their interests and knowledge levels," says event chairman Henry Gold. "All the information provided by the dedicated volunteers, however, is based on fundamental, long-term principles."
The convention, which will be at the DoubleTree San Jose, offers more than 50 sessions on a variety of investing topics, including dividend stocks, small-company equities, bonds, options, portfolio management and stock analysis. A beginners track is offered as well. The event is rounded out by panel discussions on stock selection and a live portfolio analysis from Dan Boyle, CFA, vice president at Provident Investment Management.
