I joined the AAII Value Investing Club roughly 18 years ago, just before retiring. Disappointed with the results the advisors I was using were providing, but recognizing that even though I now had some time available, I was completely unqualified to try investing even a small part of my available funds myself. The club was welcoming, and many of the members willing to patiently teach me the basics of fundamental analysis. I look forward to each meeting where a member or two will present to the other members VIA ZOOM the details on an interesting company, that the others might consider investing in.
