  community member   < less OLLI Study Group

Using your computer can help you actively select mutual funds and ETFs for investment. Index funds do not always win. There are managed funds that beat the indexes, but how do you find them, research them, and compare them?
We will show you how to use Morningstar and other resources to answer these and other questions about actively managed funds (60) while you explore how to integrate them into your portfolio. Time permitting, we will explore other web-based investment tools and investing in individual stocks.
Dale is a retired research professor and Bob is a director and current Vice-President of the SE Michigan Chapter of Better Investing.

Your first couple classes may be intense, but if you continue to come to this class, you will notice big changes! This class can help build strength, relieve pain, release tension, increase flexibility, and prevent injury. Come join us Monday nights at 5:45pm. The studio will be heated between 85-95 degrees, so bring a water bottle. Your first class at the studio is free!
We are located on Huron Street across from the YMCA. Look for blue door #22 with a red buddha on it. You are allowed to park in the lot in front of the studio. We share a parking lot with several businesses including the Yellow Barn.
