The CFA Institute Research Challenge is an annual global competition that provides university students with hands-on mentoring and intensive training in financial analysis. Students work in teams to research and analyze a stock from a publicly traded company. Each team produces an initiation-of-coverage report on their assigned stock with a buy, sell, or hold recommendation. The four teams with the highest scores presented their thesis to a panel of judges.
The other three finalist teams were from Villanova University, Philadelphia University and Elizabethtown College.
The University of Delaware team will travel to Seattle in April to compete in the Americas Regional competition. Best of luck to the UD team!
