First, let's start with who we are not, and what we don't do. We are not "day traders." We are not professional investment advisers, stock brokers, or bond traders. We don't deal in penny stocks. We don't teach buying on Margin (using borrowed money), Technical Analysis or Charting or Options trading. We don't get paid for what we do, and we don't earn commissions, referrals, or kickbacks. Our official name is the National Association of Investors Corporation (NAIC). We are a non-profit, volunteer driven, educational organization founded in 1951 by a small group of individual investors looking for a better way. Several years ago we adopted the trade name BetterInvesting (www.betterinvesting.org).
