“With the stock market going up and down recently, I’ve had lots of people ask me about stock purchases,” Fitzpatrick said. “This online seminar should offer them timely information and insight.”

The seminar is specifically designed to help anyone serious about achieving important financial goals — both people just starting out and well-seasoned investors. In just 45 minutes, Fitzpatrick will cover the differences between common and preferred stock, dividends, investment strategy and different ways to own stock.

The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session, in which participants can call-in and receive specific answers to their questions. The event is free and nothing will be sold.
