Hope you had a wonderful summer. The CFA Institute Research Challenge is happening! This is a great platform for the students and I highly recommend that you participate.
Here is some background about this competition. Each year, an LA based company is chosen and teams from local universities conduct detailed research and prepare buy/sell recommendations on the company’s shares. In the past few years, Houlihan Lokey, Snap, Disney, Mattel, Edwards Lifesciences, and Activision have been the subject companies. Last year, Scott Beiser, CEO of Houlihan Lokey and Lindsey Alley, CFO of Houlihan Lokey spent about two hours with the students sharing their experiences and answering questions. It was a pleasant and informative session for everyone.
