The Ira Sohn Investing Conference is coming soon – but this year it’s taking a page from American Idol and staging one of the coolest events I’ve ever heard of…
From Market Folly:
The legendary Ira Sohn Investment Conference in New York has a new twist this year. They are having an investment idea contest before the event to be judged by Seth Klarman, Michael Price, David Einhorn, Bill Ackman, and Joel Greenblatt. The winner gets to present their investment idea at the conference to 2,000 attendees later this month.
The judges are looking for the best investment idea with a one-year timeframe. You can learn more about the contest and submit your ideas here. Deadline for submissions is May 20th.
Whoa. Some of the greatest stockpickers of all time judging your investment idea, pretty sick.
Head over to MF for the details of how you can enter. For those who’d like to enter a bit more casually, Jay is holding his own stockpicking contest for readers on the site.
