Please Note: Instructions for signing up for the ASX Sharemarket Game, which begins on August 2nd can be found below.
Our November meeting commenced with a review of the individual investment performances of the thirteen members who participated in the latest ASX Sharemarket Game, which ended on November 14th. Andrew Diver was the winner. Peter Ferguson was in second place, Eric Berzkalns in third place, and Paul Flanagan a close fourth. The current turbulent state of the Australian Sharemarket saw the value of our participants’ portfolios fall last month.
As in previous months, I thank Eric Berzkalns, who presented the ASX’s research on the price performance and associated financial information about stocks held by our participating members. This led to an active and informative first session as our members discussed a wide and interesting range of relevant investment subjects.
After a late tea break, Eric Berzkalns presented a well-researched presentation that discussed and dissected the “Cost of Food Miles (or Kilometres) in our lives.” This was an eye-opener as it covered so many examples of food criss-crossing our globe between when it is first grown or bred, then part-processed in a distant district or country, to end up in yet another country to travel further, before finally being consumed, or ending up on our kitchen shelves or the like.
We welcome all Club members, wives and partners to our last meeting for 2018. It is also an opportunity for our members and friends to join in an end-of-year lunch.
STOP PRESS:- The Investment Group’s first meeting in 2019 will be on Thursday February 7th – same time, same venue. See you there!
