ASA & VectorVest - Investing in Resources

Tuesday 4 August 2020  | 7.00pm - 8.00pm AEST Canberra, Melbourne, Sydney

Russell and John have known each other for a number of years and have exchanged ideas on stocks and stock valuations  and they will run this informal workshop using the Vector Vest technology to examine resource stocks.

They will look at the major sectors (Gold, Iron ore, Oil & Gas, Coal and Rare Earths) investigating share price trends and valuation metrics.

This is an interactive workshop and will respond in real time to questions using both their collective understanding of the sector and the Vector Vest technology.

As an educational and hopefully entertaining session, Russell and John will not be making any recommendations but will examine major resource stocks, consensus views from brokers together with underlying data to see what hidden gems they might find.
