The competition kicked off October 28th with ten universities participating; and is now down to the final teams. Listen to the teams present their research on McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) to a panel of judges who are CFA charterholders and experts in equity research. Teams developed a written report of fundamental company analysis based on a sell-side or an independent research analyst perspective of McDonald's.

The first, second and third place teams will receive various prizes sponsored by CFA Society Chicago. The local level winning team will continue on to the America's Regional competition in Seattle the week of April 6, 2017.
