How to Survive in an Increasingly Efficient Stock Market


Pitch the Perfect Investment will push the open-minded, seasoned investment professional out of their comfort zone and challenge them to think about familiar concepts differently. In an industry where even the most successful veterans must worry about younger managers snapping at their heels, Pitch the Perfect Investment equips the Chief Investment Officer, Director of Research, and Equity Analyst with new tools, enabling them to tighten their analytical process and significantly improve communication and efficiency throughout their organization.

Paul Sonkin (CBS '95) and Paul Johnson will use concepts from their new book to show how analysts and portfolio managers can survive in an ever increasingly efficient stock market.  Investment Officers Noah Snyder (CBS '12) and Elliot Trexler will then join the discussion in a panel addressing the following critical questions:

- How can you gain an edge in the stock market?
- How can you identify mispriced stocks?
- How can you add value through the research process?
- How can you communicate those ideas effectively so that they get into the investment portfolio?
