Topic: Top Short Ideas

Program Description:
Many indexes are at all time highs, there are some investors that see very little value left in the markets (if any). While many a bear has been squeezed in the past couple years, there are two sides to every trade and looking at things from the opposite perspective aids in the investment process. This month, we invite all participants to the IEF to get negative and discuss companies that exhibit (amongst others); growth targets that can't possibly be reached, fraud, secular decline, and bad capital allocation. Whether you are overall bearish about the future, or want to find some ideas to hedge your long portfolio, join us as we share our top short ideas.

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.
