Program Description:
First-ever Local Level Competition of the CFA Institute Research Challenge Cheer on five teams of student from area universities as they compete in the CFA Institute Research Challenge hosted by CFA Society of Chicago. The competition kicked off Nov. 18 with nine universities participating; and is now down to the final five teams. Listen as the teams present their research on Zebra Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: ZBRA) to a panel of judges who are CFA Charterholders and experts in equity research. Teams also developed a written report of fundamental company analysis based on a sell-side or an independent research analyst perspective of Zebra.

The local Challenge winners will receive an internship at Morningstar, Inc. (NASDAQ: MORN) (subject to usual and customary HR requirements). In addition, the first, second and third place teams will receive various prizes sponsored by CFA Chicago. The local level winning team will continue on to the regional competition in New York.
