Topic:
Contrarian Ideas in Investing

Program Description:
The Investment Exchange Forum is a stock-picking meeting of 10-15 CFA Chicago members. Each meeting features actionable ideas by presenting volunteers and a lively discussion of the topic at hand. The IEF is both an opportunity to learn how others present investment ideas concisely and a chance to practice stock pitches. In order to keep the quality of the stock picks as high as possible, we encourage attendance by members who are actively involved in investment management.

The best investing ideas are often against the grain. Although it may not feel good in the short term to find yourself in disagreement with the investing majority, uncovering stocks that are under or over appreciated by most market participants frequently offer the best returns.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring actionable ideas to the forum for presentation.

Attendance will be limited to 15 members - first-come, first-served. Please remember to bring your own lunch.
