You may think you 're smarter than most hedge fund managers. Well, here is your chance to prove it. The Value Investing Congress and SumZero, Inc. this month announced the launch of a top idea contest, the Value Investing Challenge. Contestants need to send one investment write-up about a stock that has $300+ million in market capitalization. A team of well-known value investors will evaluate the write-ups. You've got three weeks; the submission deadline is August 17th.
The winner of the Value Investing Challenge gets to present his/her idea at the next Value Investing Congress taking place October 1 & 2, 2012 in NYC alongside world-renowned investors including David Einhorn, Barry Rosenstein, and Alex Roepers, to name a few.
The contest will identify the winner and two runners-up.
