The 3rd Set of Marquette AIM Equity Fund pitches for the Class of 2018 were presented on Friday, September 22, 2017 in the AIM Room 

This past week, the 3rd set of stock recommendations were presented by students in the AIM Class of 2018.  The pitches were presented in the College of Business Administration's AIM Room and over 45 students were in attendance.

In addition to the seniors and juniors regularly in attendance for the Friday afternoon pitches, alumni and parents also viewed the AIM presentations via webcast throughout the afternoon. Mr. Bill Walker and students in the AIM Classes of 2018 and 2019 asked excellent questions of the student-presenters and offered many useful observations and comments.

Students in the AIM program manage over $2,600,000 of the University's endowment. Balloting will take place over the weekend to determine which of the stocks listed above will be added to the AIM Funds.

Grant Runnoe, Max Mattappillil, Tim Milani and Cathy Gong were the presenters this week. Following their final buy/sell recommendations, ballots were sent to students in the AIM Class of 2018 to determine which stocks are added to the funds.

The AIM student equity pitches take place each Friday afternoon during the semester – either in the AIM Room or at a local investment company. The students prepare and distribute a professional equity write-up (note: every AIM write-up since the inception of the program in 2005 is archived here).
