IBD to Offer 2017 CAN SLIM Masters Program Based on Proprietary Investment Strategy

Highly personalized two-day workshop designed to help investors, financial advisors, portfolio managers, and traders achieve outstanding returns year after year

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Investor’s Business Daily (IBD), a leading financial news and research organization, today announced its 2017 CAN SLIM Masters Program. This unique annual gathering brings together the brightest financial minds for a highly personalized, two-day workshop for investors, advisors, portfolio managers, and traders who want to become skilled in IBD’s proprietary CAN SLIM Investing System.

CAN SLIM was created by legendary investor and IBD founder William J. O’Neil after he performed an exhaustive study of the biggest winning stocks in history. O’Neil noted that the most successful stocks had the same seven traits in common before they made huge gains. On December 9-10 at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalows in Santa Monica, CAN SLIM Masters Program attendees will learn how to identify these seven traits and apply them as part of their investing practice.

“We are delighted to bring together both individual investors and professionals for this hands-on event. Our CAN SLIM Masters Program offers investors, financial advisors, portfolio managers, and traders an incredible educational opportunity to acquire key insights that will help guide not only the next year but the rest of their, and often their clients’, financial lives,” said Jerry Ferrara, President at IBD. “The CAN SLIM Investing System is at the heart of IBD’s highly regarded stock lists, including IBD 50, Sector Leaders, Big Cap 20, and Leaderboard, all of which consistently outperform the S&P. We look forward to helping investors apply this same proprietary system to meet their own investing style and priorities.”

Over the course of the weekend, attendees take part in eight unique and informative sessions. Each session is taught by top portfolio managers and stock market experts, including the rare opening session opportunity, a talk guided by W. Scott O’Neil, William O’Neil’s son. Scott O’Neil has spent the last 30-plus years analyzing the market while holding a number of executive positions across MarketSmith and IBD. Masters Program participants will also speak directly with CAN SLIM experts who apply the system within the market every day.

The CAN SLIM Masters Program will feature sessions on the following topics:

  • The Big Winners and Losers from the Stock Market in 2017
  • The Management Effect
  • The Importance of Gaps
  • Portfolio Manager Insights
  • In-depth Analysis of the Current Market
