MBA Stock Picking Competition

September 11, 2018 - 12:30pm to 1:20pm
Location: 
C435 PC

Hi Everyone,

Welcome back to the campus!

As the MBAA finance chair, I am organizing a stock picking competition.

It will be a month-long activity and we will have $100, $75 and $50 AMZN gift cards for the top 3 investors who have the highest alpha (% return over S&P 500 return). We will have a lunch hour kick-start orientation session on Tuesday 11th Sept which will be catered, please RSVP before 6th Sept (Thursday) to be eligible for participation (I have to register participant email addresses on the platform) and also to be counted in for the meals. The objective of this whole exercise is to make our whole class enthusiastic about stocks and get investment savvy. 

Attention (Current) Stock Enthusiasts:

I am also inviting up to 5 of you to make a quick 3 min stock pitch (+ 3 min Q&A) for a company you like and have been following. The company should not be in the current Henry Fund portfolio (no UAA/UA too). Each presenter will receive a $25 AMZN gift card and the slots will be allotted on first come first serve basis based on when you reply to this email. You are strongly recommended to submit a one-page slide to accompany your pitch no later than Monday 10th Sept 11:59 pm. 

Thank you,

Manas.
