You are doing something which leads a great many people to serious errors in | the stock maraket. tt looks , to me like you are looking at the price of this stock and not making any effort to understand what is in back of the price. Admittedly, it is very discouraging to buy a stock at $40 and then see its price drop to $20 to $22 a share. But, if you look at the important part of the record, since you bought the stock in 1965 its sales have gone from $240 million to $484 million in a year. While earnings per share have not shown the same kind of growth it seems possible that they will do so in the not too distant future. It seems to me you paid much too iv.gh a price for the stock when you bought it. At the lower price it appears to be a much better value and I certainly would not be irtdin- ed to sell it at this time. This is .the time you should have done your buying. I wouldn't expect the price to double over night, but with the sales growth the company is having and the prospects of earnings growth, it seems the price is likely to eventually show some improvement. Q. I formed an investment club and when I went to my broker he said he didn't care to handle the account. Why wouldn't a broker want this kind of business? A. I can think of two reasons. >No. 1, y@ur broker may never have learned some of the techniques of handling investment clubs efficiently and consequently feel that clubs take too much time. No. 2, he may not have learned that even the; simall- est investment club is likely to send him many .additional customers. ,', ;v Neither of .these is typical. Brokers who have had considerable experience with investment clubs know that they can be very profitable for 'the brokers as well ate for their members. Admittedly, the business of an. investment club.doesn't by itself usually make a profit for 'the .broker until the dub has grown quite a ibit. But in almost every instance the broker can count on picking up a fair amount of business from members individually and friends they send to him. This is business that he likely would not receive were it not fo>r the ex- i*t*nce of (he dub. , the president of a new club recently assured me that only one of his members had ever bought stocks and that the rest didn't have the money to do any buying except through the club's 110- a«mon.th payments. art •** ft to* Ottbrid* tor rwrtvirtg honorable mention ifi Hit NtikrtMl Hotter Merit QUaii' lying tests.
