At the last meeting of EuroSCUG (Eurobodalla Computer Users Group) the guest speaker, Bill Radley, gave a presentation on ways to win on the Australian share market. He suggested members might like to consider managing their own investments rather than leaving the management to a financial advisor.
Bill has been investing in shares for 25 years, during which, despite ups and downs, the share market has risen an average of 12% per year. He believes “willingness to learn” is the main ingredient for success, and suggested that share investing is 20% finance and 80% psychology. He recommended several reference books, and suggested members join the Australian Shareholders Association, whose website has a lot of useful information.
Bill is the Convenor of the South Coast Discussion Group of the Australian Shareholders Association which meets at Batemans Bay, and can be contacted at email@example.com or phone 0419612401
At EuroSCUG’s next meeting, at 10am on Wednesday 4th July, at Moruya Golf Club, Kerrie O’Connor, editor of the Bay Post, will give a presentation on Fairfax Media’s “Fix it Now Campaign for a Safer Princes Highway”. Launched in March 2018, this campaign was designed to put pressure on state and federal politicians to take urgent action to upgrade the Highway south of Nowra. A growing number of organisations, including NRMA and Bega Cheese, have since joined the crusade.
After morning tea, small groups will cover various topics, including making a video, genealogy strategies, and basic internet browser skills. There will also be a beginners group, and a Help Desk to provide assistance with hardware or software problems.
EuroSCUG is a group of people willing to share and pool knowledge and experience in modern technology. It is a friendly group, offering a wonderful opportunity for seniors to make friends, socialise, and expand their awareness of local happenings.
Members meet at 10am on the first Wednesday of the month at Moruya Golf Club, and local area groups meet regularly in Batemans Bay, Moruya, Tuross Head and Narooma. Monthly tablet groups (iPad and Android) are also held.
