SOHN INVESTMENT IDEA CONTEST LAUNCHES IN ADVANCE OF
21ST ANNUAL SOHN INVESTMENT CONFERENCE
Legendary investors Michael Price, William Ackman, David Einhorn, Joel Greenblatt, and Seth Klarman to select winner
New York, NY – March 30, 2016 – The Sohn Conference Foundation today announced the launch of its Investment Idea Contest ahead of the 21stAnnual Sohn Investment Conference, in partnership with CNBC. The winner will present his or her idea to more than 3,000 attendees from across the globe at the Conference on May 4, 2016 at Lincoln Center in New York City and will be featured on CNBC and CNBC.com.
The contest is open to any individual with an investment idea for a marketable security (long or short) with a market capitalization above $1 billion. The submission deadline is 5 p.m. on April 22, 2016. A panel of the world’s most elite investors, led by Michael Price and including William Ackman, David Einhorn, Joel Greenblatt, and Seth Klarman will select the winner based on the judges’ determination of the most compelling investment thesis with a one-year horizon.
“The Sohn Investment Idea Contest provides a unique opportunity for anyone to share the stage with some of the most sophisticated investors from around the world,” said Lance Laifer, one of the founders of the Sohn Conference Foundation. “Winning ideas from previous years have set a high bar for excellence, and we look forward to receiving this year’s submissions.”
Last year’s winner, Angelo Martorell, who currently works at Andalusian Capital Partners, LP, pitched a long bet on Interactive Corp (IACI). His investment idea was centered on Tinder, making the case that the stock was significantly undervalued due to the sum of the parts analysis used by the street not reflecting the true value of Tinder.
