Team will pitch three stocks in the preliminary rounds (1-3) of the competition. All teams will need to issue an investment recommendation on one assigned common stock in round one, and will have a limited choice of 3-5 stocks from different industry baskets from which they will select a stock to pitch in rounds 2 and 3. Each pitch will need to feature a different lead presenter though all team members are encouraged to answer Q&A. Presentations are 10 minutes long with 5 minutes of Q&A from judges. Teams should use a pre-issued Powerpoint template for their presentations. Judges will select the top team to advance to the final round from each of the three presentation rooms.
The three finalists will proceed to the final round, where they make a ten-minute presentation on any stock of their choice, followed by five minutes of Q&A. First and second place winners are announced.
Competing teams are not permitted to watch one another’s presentations in the first three rounds. Non-finalists are encouraged to watch finalist teams in the final round.
