YIS’ annual flagship event is the Global Stock Pitch Competition. This competition is the culmination of investment skills gained during the year and provides High School students hands-on mentoring in financial analysis. Students (either individually or in teams of two) create a “best stock idea” and analyze a publicly traded company–sometimes meeting with company management. Each student/team writes a report on their chosen company with a “Buy” or “Sell” recommendation and then presents and defends their analysis in a written report and brief to a panel of University Professors and Industry Professionals.
The state and global competitions are hosted by YIS. The winner from each state competition advances to the global competition, where one team emerges as global champion. The state competitions are held in the beginning of May and the global competition is held during the last two weeks of May.
The Due Date for Submissions is April 30th.
This section of the website is full of helpful things designed to give you an edge. There are videos, templates, report submission guidelines, and more to help create a winning report and presentation.
