Topic: Agricultural Investing for Lower Farm Income

Program Description:
Following the 2012 drought-driven boom in agricultural prices, values for corn, soybeans, and other key commodities have come back to earth. As such, U.S. farm revenue and net income look to fall this year, but weather risk remains a critical factor in the long-term equation for companies in the farm complex. Join us on May 16, 2014 to discuss investment ideas related to the current negative sentiment in the crop-growing industry.

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.
