Topic: North American Oil & Gas

Program Description:
The U.S. has benefitted from an energy boom in recent years; increasing natural gas production (due to shale drilling) has led to sharp declines in gas prices, while rising oil production has some forecasters believing the country will become the world’s largest oil producer by 2020. A continued the move toward energy independence would undoubtedly have major geopolitical and economic results. For instance, automakers such as General Motors and Ford could enjoy a renewed U.S. consumer that may enjoy very low energy prices, while coal miners like Peabody Energy may be facing a secular decline in their long-term prospects due to low prices of alternative fuels. Join us on Feb. 15, 2013 as we discuss companies positively and negatively impacted by the U.S. energy expansion.

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.
