Skype Instructions: Download and install Skype from Skype lets you dial toll free numbers in the USA at no cost. The only difficulty is using the touch-tone keypad on the screen to enter the Conference Code. For some reason the tones got garbled. The issue is easily solved by talking to the conference service operator.

Abstract: Jim will cover three charts- the S&P 500, ABT, and WMT. The use of these three charts will help us see how we can use historical CAGRs to sort out the right time to buy. It works for the overall market as well as individual stocks.

S&P 500 - Use the BMW Method to evaluate an index over the long term to see what is really happening. This analysis will show what happens as we "slice and dice" the index over time. This is basic to understanding why the BMW Method works.

ABT - Use a low, high CAGR line as well as a high, low CAGR line to spot a stock that is breaking out to make new highs. Impressive gains can be make for the patient investor. This is a classic BMW Method opportunity. Why look for risky, high flyers when we can buy blue chip, proven companies and make that kind of gain?

WMT - Here again is the same picture, but the break-out has yet to occur. The slice and dice tells the story pretty well for us.
