Whitney Tilson and Glenn Tongue of T2 Partners will teach An Advanced Seminar on Value Investing: How to Decipher Financial Statements, Avoid Value Traps and Pick Investment Winners. Past participants have enthusiastically endorsed this in-depth workshop, describing it as "an investment that pays for itself" with information that can be "immediately put to use."
"With markets in a state of tremendous volatility, it is now more important than ever to employ disciplined value investing strategies. By focusing on undervalued stocks, investors can take advantage of the current environment and realize the best long-term gains," said Whitney Tilson, the co-founder of the Value Investing Congress, the founder of hedge fund firm T2 Partners, and a regular columnist for the Financial Times and Kiplinger's Personal Finance.
