MSU Meridian Seminar Focuses on Investing

Meridian, Miss. A seminar is being offered at MSU Meridian this month, based on a book written by professor emeritus, Dr. Paul Allen.

Allen wrote the book, Choose Stocks Wisely: A Formula That Produced Amazing Returns.

The seminar is targeted to people who want to learn how to use Allen's investing strategy.

"We all know the stock market can be a risky place," said Allen. "I've had a lot of success in the stock market, but it's because I've learned how to assess risks properly. And so what I'm wanting to do through this seminar, through the book, again, is show how to use the balance sheet to assess risks properly."

The session is set for Monday, Dec. 16, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the downtown campus computer lab.

The registration deadline for the seminar is Thursday, Dec. 12. It's open to the general public.

The cost of the seminar is $25 (payable to MSU-Meridian) and advanced registration is required. Participants must have a copy of Dr. Allen's book for the seminar. Books may be purchased at the seminar for $15 (payable to Paul Allen).

Forms may be picked up at MSU-Meridian's Downtown campus located at 2212 5th Street or email Stacy Parkes at For more information call 601.484.0150.
