Collection of Links for Lee Tanner's Presentations

Lee Tanner, organizer of the Petaluma Investor's Business Daily (IBD) Meetup, is an extremely successful and experienced amateur CAN SLIM trader (and is featured in Amy Smith's latest book "How To Make Money In Stocks: Success Stories"). Since 2011, he has made several AMAZING presentations explaining his method of CAN SLIM investing. I've provided links to the presentations below ordered by most recent presentation first. Also, I've provided links to other useful files at the bottom of this web page.

For those starting out in CANSLIM, I would recommend listening to both parts of the "CAN SLIM Methods & Quick Start 2013" presentation. After you have learned Lee's basic strategy, I'd recommend watching the "CAN SLIM Example Portfolio Summer Rally 2012" presentation and the May, 2011 "CAN SLIM Quick Start" for more details on how Lee would have implemented his strategy during those 2 rallies. Also, by joining the Petaluma IBD Meetup, you can have access to additional educational files.

I can't thank Lee enough for the OUTSTANDING job he has done in explaining his method and providing a simple roadmap to success. You may wonder: Is it worth listening to the presentations? I (and many others) can say that it DEFINITELY is worth it! Be prepared to take plenty of notes. Lee's presentation has remarkably improved my trading results, and it can improve yours also.

Viewing the Powerpoint 2010 Files (.PPTX)

    The presentation files are in Powerpoint 2010 (.pptx file), and Lee has used several of that version's latest features. Therefor, I strongly suggest that you download the 2010 PowerPoint Viewer and install it. If you'd rather not install the viewer, you can use the "cloud" equivalent, Powerpoint WebApp Viewer.
