Annual ProAm Investment Challenge


The ProAm Investment Challenge is an investment game in which participants choose a basket of stocks and compete for the best return.


CONTEST RULES

 

This contest is open to Chicago Booth alumni and former faculty, one entry per person.  Highest return wins various prizes and accolades, depending on the Alumni Club to which he/she belongs.  In addition, city performance is compiled, and a traveling trophy goes to the best performing club (the Cup is currently residing in San Francisco).  All entries MUST be submitted by 11:59pm PST Sunday, January 21, 2018.

  1. Each participant shall invest a hypothetical $100,000 portfolio. Each portfolio must have at least two, but no more than five securities and each security must account for at least 20% ($20,000) of the total portfolio value. No trades are allowed after the initial investment position is established.


  2. Participants can choose from the following investments:

    • Common or preferred stock traded on the NYSE, AMEX, or NASDAQ.
    • Any corporate, municipal, or US bond quoted in Wall Street Journal.
    • Cash or 12 month T-bill.

  3. Identify short sales by using parenthesis around the dollar amount to be shorted. It is necessary to reserve cash in the amount of the short position. This reserve plus the cash from the short sale will be invested in T-Bills.


  4. Winners will be determined based on the highest total return using the closing prices of January 19 and December 31, 2018.
