If you’ve ever wanted to get some good pointers on investing, here’s your chance.Starting Thursday and then running every Thursday in the Daily’s business section, look for “Investing Wisely,” by Richard Loth.”It’s more educational than advice,” Loth said. “The idea is to provide people with impartial, practical advice they can apply to personal investing.”Loth owns Vail-based Mentor Investing and is a registered investment adviser. He’s also authored several books on investing, including “Select Winning Stocks Using Financial Statements,” “The Annual Report Glossary,” and “How to Profit from Reading Annual Reports.”Loth also has significant international banking experience in Latin America, Africa and the Far East, with Fleet National Bank, Citibank and the Bank of Montreal. He has taught at Georgetown University Business School and at Colorado Mountain College and has been a guest speaker at numerous domestic and international functions.Loth said “Investing Wisely” will provide something for every level of investor, from beginners to experts.”There should be a little something for everyone,” he said. “I’ll rotate it around.”Loth has also presented a number of free community investment seminars at the Vail and Avon public libraries.Cliff Thompson can be contacted via e-mail at cthompson@vaildaily.com or by calling 949-0555 ext. 450.
