Investment Challenge

For the past 25 years, the Atlanta alumni club has been running a stock picking challenge called the "Pro-Am Investment Challenge" - members of other clubs are welcome to participate, and there is a traveling trophy for the club whose portfolio performs best! (which is currently in San Francisco) To join, simply complete the form below by 1/24, choosing between 2 and 5 securities to invest in a hypothetical $100,000 portfolio - see detailed rules below. Your portfolio value will be based on the difference between the closing price on 1/25 and the end of 2013. In addition to the traveling trophy we could win as a club, there will be a prize for the winning portfolio submitted by a member of the Minnesota club!

Challenge Rules

1. Each participant shall invest a hypothetical $100,000 portfolio. Each portfolio must have at least two, but no more than five securities and each security must account for at least 20% ($20,000) of the total portfolio value. No trades are allowed after the initial investment position is established. 2. Participants can choose from the following investments: Common or preferred stock traded on the NYSE, AMEX, or NASDAQ. Any corporate, municipal, or US bond quoted in Wall Street Journal. Cash or 12 month T-bill. 3. Identify short sales by using parenthesis around the dollar amount to be shorted. It is necessary to reserve cash in the amount of the short position. This reserve plus the cash from the short sale will be invested in T-Bills. 4. Winners will be determined based on the highest total return using the closing prices of January 25 and December 31, 2013.
