My Program of Speaking Engagements
Lessons from the last Bull Market
Colin did not suffer any significant loss in his capital in the 2007-2009 bear market that is known as the Global Financial Crisis and has since grown his capital beyond the 2007 peak in the stock market. He will show the signs that he published well in advance that the 2003-2007 bull market was close to its end. Every bull market sees some big companies that fail completely. Colin will show several examples of how it is possible not to be caught in these stocks that "crash and burn" taking all of our savings with them.
Timing the Market: Run with the Bull and Avoid the Bear
From experience gained over 45 years investing in the stock market, Colin has learned how to take full advantage of bull markets while moving out of harm's way when bear markets inevitably follow. He has developed a three-factor analysis method based on the teachings of the great market timers. Colin will show how anyone can learn to recognise the signs and he will outline his strategies that have led to consistently strong returns. Along the way he will explain the large patterns that explain what has been happening in the stock market after the 2007-2009 bear market plunge. After this session you should never again be caught in a bear market.
The Seven Things to Look for in a Stock that will Keep you Safe
Colin has been investing safely in the stock market for 45 years. In that time, he has achieved consistent returns by investing in investment grade stocks and staying away from the stocks that are pure speculations and cause significant losses in the hands of inexperienced investors. Colin has developed seven key things that he looks for in a stock before buying it that give a margin of safety and the opportunity to produce significant dividend yield and capital gain.
How to Select Safe Stocks that are Most Likely to Outperform the Market
For most people, selecting stocks seems like a lottery. On all sides, experts give often contradictory advice. Moreover, most inexperienced investors find analysing the accounts of a company to be intimidating, confusing and almost like a mystic art. Colin has been selecting stocks for 45 years and has developed a method that is simple to understand and requires only basic accounting concepts. He will show you how you can find and assess stocks that provide a margin of safety, while having the potential to outperform the market by providing a growing stream of dividends and growth in capital. He will explain the key principles of diversification and risk management.
How to Find and Assess Good Prospective Investments in the Stock Market
There are hundreds of investment grade stocks listed on the ASX that we could consider investing in. Finding the best candidates can be a daunting task for investors. Colin will demonstrate his methods using a combination of disciplines: fundamental analysis for relative value and technical analysis for timing. This will not be a simply theoretical talk. Colin will explain his methods and then do a live demonstration of the way he finds and assess a stock chosen at the time and assessed by the audience under his guidance from a market scan run at the meeting as at the previous night’s close on the ASX.

How to Avoid Stocks that Crash and Burn
When we buy big popular stocks we never imagine that they could go belly-up and we lose everything, but it happens. Colin will show how to get out of potential disasters well before the final spiral to total loss.

Think Like the Great Investors
The best investors succeed because they seem to think counter-intuitively. They make better decisions by avoiding the common cognitive biases that are natural to us all, but which hold us back in our investing. Colin will discuss some of the ways we can make better investing decisions from his new book Think Like the Great Investors, which is due to be published mid-2013.

A Sharper Focus on Chart Patterns
Chart patterns are where charting began. Colin will suggest that they are often identified carelessly. He will propose a more disciplined approach to pattern identification that combines rigorous definition supported by an understanding of the behavioural explanation of how they are formed. After this talk you may never see chart patterns the same way again.
