When I saw the numbers coming in on Part I of this series, I was very pleased. The instant popularity of the article told me that the subject matter had struck a chord with readers. And, as a writer, nothing makes me happier. Well, nothing except perhaps one other thing &mdash a comment I received from SC member Gene Rooks. "Amy, a really great, informative article on the place of technical analysis," she wrote. "Made perfect sense to me, and I am a fundamental purist."
No, I'm not tooting my own horn. Honest. What struck me was the last part of Gene's comment: Made perfect sense to me, and I am a fundamental purist. That got me to thinking and wondering about the origin of the Great Divide — the chasm between those investors who prefer Technical Analysis and those who swear by Fundamental Analysis — and whether investors from both camps might be able to find common ground.
A Little Bit of History
Recalling that Saul and I had touched on this very subject, I went back to my notes. Interestingly enough, Charles Dow — founder of Dow Jones & Co. and The Wall Street Journal — was one of the forerunners of Technical Analysis. Navigating the financial markets in Dow's time was no easy task. Picture the financial markets — sans computers and any sort of central reporting agency (and you thought what happened last fall was scary!).
October Events Featuring IClub President, Doug Gerlach
October 3, 2009
Doug Gerlach will be the featured speaker at BetterInvesting's Central Pennsylvania Chapter Education Day. Doug's topic "Stock Selection Blunders, Bungles, and Bloopers" is an overview of what NOT to do when using Toolkit to examine companies for your portfolio. Doug will take a look at common mistakes made by both experienced and beginning investors when analyzing stocks.
He will also present a session at this event titled "A Structured Approach to Analysis with Toolkit 6" — The Toolkit program has been popular with long-term investors since 1991 because it uses a time-tested method of analyzing companies using a structured approach that incorporates traditional Wall Street metrics. By focusing on essential company characteristics, investors can better determine a stock's projected future performance and build a portfolio of equities that will outperform the overall market.
This event will be at the ATEC Building, Central Penn College, Summerdale, PA. Pre-registration is $40 in advance or $50 on day of event. To register or for more information, contact email@example.com or call 717-891-4742.
