Investment Philosophy Matters When Generating Ideas

Growth versus Value

Dan Pickett 0 28 Article rating: 5.0

Summer break is a great time to work on an idea to pitch when classes resume in the Fall. There are many good reasons to spend the time including: 1) practicing what you learned about company analysis and accounting is an excellent way to prepare for your Fall semester classes, 2) developing a narrative around your stock analysis gives you awesome talking points for next summer’s internship or full-time job interviews (they’ll be starting soon and there is no better demonstration of your technical competence and passion for investing than describing a company you’ve analyzed), 3) pitching can be a differentiator if you plan to interview for AEMR or ASAP, UW’s two competitive and limited enrollment applied investments classes, 4) pitching is also the only way you can earn the coveted PA vest and impress all your friends, and, of course, 5) it’s fun!

Finding an idea can seem daunting when you are just starting out, so we want to provide some guidance to help get you going (you can also review the Identifying and idea slides in the Training sessions folder on the CMC OneDrive – access is through the Resource Guide under FOR MEMBERS on the website).

Trucking Industry Boom Suddenly Turns into a Slump

McAlindon Research Partners Daily Intelligence Briefing note

Dan Pickett 0 0 Article rating: No rating

When analyzing stocks it can be helpful to organize your assessment of the key stock drivers by category: macro economic or political, secular trends, industry, or company specific. As analysts, we add the most value through our analysis of company specific and industry drivers and for some stocks, the industry drivers dominate. Often these industries are capital intensive and operate in cycles that may even be somewhat independent of the broader economic cycle (but not always and rarely completely). In the attached note, McAlidon Research Partners describes key drivers in the trucking industry that will have an out-sized effect on trucking companies. The note includes links to many of the sources of the data used in the analysis and offers a good example of industry analysis.
