7:00pm: Colin Nicholson - Stocks to Outperform: Five Key Factors, How to Find them and How to Manage Risk
Stocks have produced superior investment returns over the long term. However, not all stocks are equal. Some stocks outperform and others perform less well, or turn out to be dogs. From research of major world stock markets over the last century, five factors stand out as being the drivers of outperformance when building a portfolio of investment grade stocks. This has been largely hidden from private investors in difficult to grasp research papers. Colin will explain what the five key factors are in simple terms, after which you will know where to look for stocks likely to outperform.
However, knowing what the five key factors are is only the first step. Colin will show how he goes about finding these stocks on the ASX, which has over 2,000 stocks to choose from. But that is not all: the potential for higher returns also often carries with it a higher level of risk. Colin will explain how to manage risk when investing in a portfolio of these stocks.
