Topic: Investment Opportunities Driven by the U.S. Drought

Program Description:
Over the past several months, the U.S. has seen its worst drought in 25 years. Sweltering heat and minimal rainfall have led to a variety of effects, most notably in rural communities where farmers have seen reduced crop yields, higher corn and soybean prices, and a greater reliance on disaster insurance. Nonetheless, the weather can be fickle, and today's short-term problems can lead to longer-term opportunities. Please join us at Noon on Friday, August 17 to discuss potential investment ideas that have arisen as a result of this year's monumental drought.

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.

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.
