Topic: Distressed Companies

Program Description:
Distressed companies can present tempting risk/reward tradeoffs. Investors sometimes overreact to corporate news, creating buying opportunities. Other times market participants do not see the full severity of a struggling company's problems and lose out as the situation progresses for the worse. In recent news, companies such as Hewlett-Packard and Netflix have faced challenging industry economics and have had to deal with questions over the viability of their business models. Join us on Jan. 18, 2013 as we discuss distressed companies, turnaround stories and potential value traps in the current markets. Ideas about companies that are likely to fail, will fare better than the Street expects, or are in the process of a turnaround are all welcome!

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.
