Next meeting: The New Farm Library Meeting Room is open for meetings for up to twenty people with the requirement that social distancing be observed. The next meeting is booked for Sunday 18 April so we can have a meeting on that day provided there is no further outbreak of the COVID-19 virus in Queensland. An email will be sent out to all members with instructions about registering for the meeting so that we can limit the number of attendees.
Next Meeting: Sunday 18 April at 9.30 am till midday.
Place: New Farm Library Meeting Room, 135 Sydney Street, New Farm. When facing the Library the Meeting Room is on the left near the parking area.
Topics: Guest speaker will be Graeme Cannell, a very experienced investor/trader who will be addressing issues to do with corporate ethics as they affect shareholders and the fact that directors' interests don't necessarily align with those of shareholders. I can promise that this presentation will be both informative and entertaining. There will be opportunity to ask questions.
In the remaining time we will see how the IPO PV Breakout system would have performed this year so far.
Sunday Meetings Booked at New Farm 2021: 18 April, 16 May, 20 June, 18 July, 15 August, 19 September, 17 October, 21 November, 12 December.
