Usually, conferences, where some of the best investors voice their opinion about the markets, economy and even present some of their best stock picks, represent a great source of insights, especially for retail investors. From one point, these investors don’t give any direct tips, but from the other, if David Einhorn, or Carl Icahn say they like a particular company, why shouldn’t you? This is why we try to cover as many such events as possible and have done so over the last years.
Today is the second day of the Robin Hood Investors Conference in New York. This is a grand event hosted by the Robin Hood Foundation with the proceeds (a ticket costed $7,500) going to help underpriveleged New Yorkers. This year the conference hosts a many interesting speakers such as David Einhorn, Jim Chanos, Anna Nikolayevsky, and others.
We have compiled a list of some of the best ideas that have been presented at the conference during the last couple of days. Even though the presentation was closed to media, many sources covered some parts of the event based on the words of people attending the conference. Among the stocks that have been presented among the best ideas of investors are Sunedison Inc (NYSE:SUNE), American Airlines Group Inc (NASDAQ:AAL), and EZCORP Inc (NASDAQ:EZPW).
