THE ENGAGE UNDERGRADUATE INVESTMENT CONFERENCE REVOLVES AROUND THE MOST COMPETITIVE UNDERGRADUATE STOCK PITCH COMPETITION IN THE NATION. TEAMS FROM AROUND THE COUNTRY PRESENT THEIR STOCK PITCHES IN FRONT OF A PANEL OF PROFESSIONAL INVESTORS FOR A CHANCE TO PRESENT THEIR PITCHES IN FRONT OF THE ENTIRE CONFERENCE AUDIENCE.


Competition Details

Each team of 3-5 members will pitch an equity, long or short. Pitches are evaluated best on quality of idea, analysis, and presentation. First round pitches are to be 12 minutes. Teams that advance to the final round will have 15 minutes to pitch.

FIRST ROUND: In the first round, teams will present in front of a panel of investors, who will evaluate each pitch on its idea, analysis, and presentation. The top teams from the first round will advance to the final round for a chance to present in front of the entire conference. FINAL ROUND: Teams who are selected to advance to the final round will pitch their ideas in front of a panel of executive-level investment professionals and the entire conference audience. RULES: Stocks are to come from the universe of companies with market capitalizations above $500 million and share prices above $2 as of the close of regular trading on October 9, 2020. Selections must be a stock (common or preferred), including ADRs and GDRs. Pair trades are acceptable as long as each security would be eligible on its own. ETFs, ETNs, Closed-End Funds, and other exchange-traded securities, including derivatives (options/futures) and currencies, will not be eligible for the competition. We are interested in participants’ abilities to select and evaluate companies, not their ability to evaluate sectors, trends, or managers. Additionally, equities must have a three month average daily volume of at least 100,000 shares (as of the close on October 8, 2020) and must trade on the NASDAQ, NYSE, or NYSE AMEX (no OTCBB or PinkSheets). The opportunity will be evaluated as a long or short position with a three to twelve month investment horizon.

Location Details

To ensure safety for all participants, judges and dignitaries, the UIC will be moved to spring 2021

Address: 701 Tappan St, Ann Arbor, MI 48104
