Program Description:
Disruptive Changes in TV Industry

Pay-TV services like Comcast's Xfinity or AT&T's Uverse have stirred up consumer resentment for many years as the price of programming increased. Services such as Netflix, TiVo, and more recently Amazon Instant Video have tried to uproot this trend by giving consumers more choices to watch TV, but have not yet upset the balance in the pay TV industry. Intel and Aereo are the two newest players in this industry, one offering an a la carte channel offering while the other brings broadcast TV stations to mobile devices and televisions.

The cable and telecommunications industries are defending their markets through litigation, new TV Everywhere offerings, and by purchasing the valuable content providers. Will they successfully defend their turf or will a disruptive new technology or changing consumer tastes change industry fundamentals? Join us on Fri., May 17 as we discuss disruptive changes in the TV markets.

The Investment Exchange Forum is a stock-picking meeting of 10-15 CFA Chicago members. Each meeting features actionable ideas by presenting volunteers and a lively discussion of the topic at hand. The IEF is both an opportunity to learn how others present investment ideas concisely and a chance to practice stock pitches. In order to keep the quality of the stock picks as high as possible, we encourage attendance by members who are actively involved in investment management.

Attendees are strongly encouraged to bring actionable ideas to the forum for presentation.

Attendance will be limited to 15 members - first-come, first-served. Please remember to bring your own lunch.
