The regular meeting on Tuesday 12 September 2017 is at the Melbourne PC User Group headquarters at 10.30 am to 12.30 pm (location details as for Melb PC monthly meetings, 479 Warrigal Road, Moorabbin).
In most cases, ETFs are a basket of stocks representative of the theme of the ETF. Volatility in any one stock in the ETF holding only has a small impact on the price of the ETF as a whole. Low price stocks in general have high volatility as a very small price change may represent a large per cent change. However most low price stocks are low priced as they do not have the valuation backing to support a higher price. The September meeting will discuss recent medium term momentum of both ETFs and lower price stocks as possible contenders for a portfolio. “Lower price” is open to definition, but for the purpose of the meeting a price of less than $3.00 will be considered as “lower price”. The variation of momentum of ETFs and “lower price” stocks will be discussed in relation to setting stop sell values and possible profit targets.
The User Group Meeting rooms are the top floor, north side of 479 Warrigal Rd. The building is on the west side of Warrigal Road, just south of Cochranes Rd opposite Bunnings. Preferred parking is likely behind the building, entering by the access road just south of number 479. If coming from the north travelling south along Warrigal Road it is necessary to travel a short distance past number 479 and then execute a ‘U’ turn at the provided location in the dual carriage way.
