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:

Henry Lu pitches Hudbay Minerals
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 11/11/16

The students are responsible for making a seven-minute pitch before their peers, faculty and any alumni or investment professional in attendance.

Donnie Smiley pitched DOC

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.
