In addition to the seniors and juniors regularly in attendance for the Friday afternoon pitches, 10 people 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.

Adam Hamilton, Matthew Holland, Joe Flynn, Joseph Amoroso, and Brian Holland were the presenters this week. Following their final buy/sell recommendations, ballots will be sent to students in the AIM Class of 2018 to determine which stocks are added to the funds. A 2/3rd affirmative vote is required for a new security to be added to either the AIM Small Cap or International Fund.

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).
