Topic: Impact of Technology on Communications and Stocks

Program Description:
With many of us increasingly tied to our electronics the world has never been more connected, but the ways information and data gets to the end consumer have transformed in recent months with; the courts' decision against AREO and the ongoing debate of net neutrality , the shift to multiple platforms/devices and what it does to advertising spend , mega TV deals reported in both distribution and content as well as less headline grabbing deals in print, broadcasting, and radio. And emergence of media competition from non-traditional telecom and internet sources just to name a few. Join us on August 15 to discuss stocks poised to benefit (or decline) from the rapidly changing landscape of how information is distributed.

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.
