These are the types of reports I have been looking at when looking to invest funds. Hopes to have three choices for discussion at next Board Meeting. Re: Rate of return, higher rates also mean higher risk. How does the rest of Board feel on where we should go?
Matan: looking for consistency over risk. (Eric agrees)
Scott: Looking at (in general) 12-14% growth
Martin: Those rates are very high historically.
Mike: The linked mutual fund (above) has generated approximately a 7% return for the past decade.
Reviewed Mondo sales, mondo did outsell the IJA, leggings and joggers were popular add on items. Lower prices so sold more items as well.
For awards committee everyone willing to serve again have not heard from Sky King, will send one more email.
Scott: we’re registered with Amazon Smile, so I’m planning on writing a blurb to remind people that it exists
