Ivey Business School’s Ben Graham Centre International Stock Picking Competition

Kellogg team chooses wisely; wins $10,000 prize

6/12/2015 - Three Kellogg students won the Ivey Business School’s Ben Graham Centre International Stock Picking Competition on April 14. Will Manderscheid, Alex Acosta and Anish Pasari (all ’15) took the top prize of $10,000.

The competition aims to change common misconceptions of value investing and stock picking by helping students and practitioners understand value investing through a unique stock-picking forum.

After evaluating different stock options, recommending either a “buy” or a “no buy” at the current price, the challenge culminated in convincing a panel of highly accomplished value investors to buy or not buy the stock, using the most compelling investment thesis.

“The competition was a phenomenal experience. It pushed us to apply the value investing principles of Ben Graham in real-time with small companies that were not covered by Wall Street,” said Manderscheid.
