WALL STREET, MAIN STREET AND COMPUTERS MEET AT NATIONAL FORUM; COMPUTER
 USERS LEARN STOCK MARKET ANALYSIS AND INVESTMENT AT COMPUFEST '92
 ALEXANDRIA, Va., Aug. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Personal computers can help individuals analyze common stocks and make informed investment decisions in the stock market.
 That's the message behind the National Association of Investors Corp.'s (NAIC) Compufest '92, a forum where young and old investors can learn about NAIC's investment philosophy and discover hands-on how computers can help them become successful owners of common stock. The second annual event will take place Friday, Aug. 7, to Sunday, Aug. 9, at the Old Colony Inn. The NAIC is a national, non-profit organization of investment clubs and individual investors.
 "Last year's CompuFest was a sell-out!," said NAIC Chairman Thomas E. O'Hara. "CompuFest '92 looks to be heading in the same direction with more than 450 people expected to attend. This year's core program, designed with the family in mind, focuses on the future of computers and investing. Seminars will consist of hands-on workshops designed to widen investors' horizons and sharpen their skills," he said.
 Attendees will gain insight from distinguished speakers including Knight A. Kiplinger, editor and publisher of Kiplinger's Personal Finance Magazine. He will discuss the subject of his recent book, "America in the Global '90s: The Shape of the Future -- How You Can Profit from It."
 Investors will also have the chance to meet with representatives of publicly held companies including McDonalds' Corp., AFLAC Inc., Tribune Co., Blockbuster Entertainment, ADVANTA Corp., Comdisco, and Dana Corp.
 The major force behind CompuFest is NAIC's Computer Group, now in its seventh year. The group's 2,700 members learn about computers and investing year-round through periodic newsletters, regional meetings and computer-linked communications. The group has experienced tremendous growth in recent years.
 NAIC Computer Group President Phil Keating, organizer of CompuFest '92, promises, "This year, we plan to at least double last year's number of computers and the time available for hands-on workshops. Most of our members are PC-based, but the fastest growing platform over the past year has been the Macintosh. Both platforms will be fully supported at CompuFest." In addition, there will be sequences on SSG Plus and Take $tock, NAIC's computerized stock guides for IBM-compatible and Macintosh computers, respectively.
 A major theme for the weekend festivities will be using NAIC's Low Cost Investment Plan to build family portfolios through dollar-cost- averaging. The plan connects NAIC members with the dividend reinvestment programs of more than 90 corporations. In addition, CompuFest programs for young people will be expanded based on last year's interest: there will be more instructions and a new session on student investment clubs.
