Description

Understanding Stocks for Fun & Profit

Join Westman Village and Herman VanGenderen, author of Stocks for Fun and Profit for an evening of education and light refreshments on Wednesday, August 29th from 7:00pm - 9:00pm.

Many have listened to the experts speak on building wealth, but those presentations could leave you more confused than when you started. How about listening to an amateur, who has actually done it on his own?

Herman’s low key and common sense approach which he defines as, “success through simplicity,” has helped him achieve about 12% annual returns for 25 years. The presentation, based on his newly published book, shares his wisdom from many years as a very successful amateur investor. It will take aim at, and debunk, MANY long-held perceptions about stock investing. While starting young is beneficial, any age group can benefit. Investing can also be a very interesting pursuit in retirement.

Register early, space is limited.


HERMAN VANGENDEREN was raised on a small dairy farm by Dutch immigrant parents, growing up in a large family with very modest means. Enthusiasm for farming led to a degree in agriculture and a 35+ year career in agricultural sales and management. While building his career Herman became an active investor in both stocks and real estate. Originally focused on real estate the workload became onerous given his career efforts and travel schedule. This motivated a shift towards the simplicity of stocks exclaiming he “sure doesn’t miss those tenant and toilet days!” The book, based on his boutique investment newsletter and lifelong experiences, advocates success through simplicity.
