Abbott labs, they do not meet the club’s goal of 20 percent growth
VI. New business
- 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
- 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.
IX. Industry report

thorough and concise job reviewing the energy industry. Much revolved
around fuel cells. See handout.

½ point since club’s purchase.
