AIM Students Pitched Stocks on October 28, 2016 Following the First Meeting of the AIM Class of 2018

Three AIM students presented their stock recommendations on Friday, October 28, 2016

Over 40 students – including members of the new AIM Class of 2018 attended the eighth set of equity pitches delivered by the Class of 2017 this semester in the AIM Room on Friday, October 28, 2016. 

The three AIM student presentations also were viewed on-line via a webcast by more than 10 alumni and family members across North America – while others joined via Twitter.

Friday marked the beginning of the second round of equity presentations for the AIM seniors – and for the remainder of the semester each student will be responsible for at least one more stock pitch.

The AIM student equity pitches take place each Friday afternoon during the semester – either in the AIM Room or at a local investment company. You can also watch the live presentations by the students in the AIM Class of 2017 via webcast.

This week's presentations included:

Student Presenter
Company Name
Pat Cashner
Workhorse Group
Dan Drew
Matt Ogren
Intl Consumer Discretionary

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).

This week’s equity write-ups can be found at:  AIM Equity Write-Up 10/28
The students are responsible for making a seven-minute pitch before their peers, faculty and any alumni or investment professional in attendance. 

Following the student’s pitch the floor is opened up for a question and answer session that lasts about ten minutes. This has been highly instructive as the students must be prepared to defend their investment recommendation and answer questions in an extemporaneous manner.

Note: The ballot is prepared and buy and sell recommendations are voted upon by the students over the weekend. The transactions are executed at the beginning of the week.
