During winter break, two of BCF’s certificate students, along with two other Princeton undergrads, developed and presented an investment thesis in the preliminary rounds of the University of Georgia’s Stock Pitch Competition. Their pitch for stock in Vontier Corp (VNT) has advanced to the final round, which will take place on Friday, February 17, 2023. Congratulations to Shirley Ren, John Shin, Justin Ong, and Allison Yang (pictured above from L-R). We wish you the best of luck in the final!
Update 2/20/23: Due to interviews and class requirements, three of the four students were unable to attend the in-person final pitch. On Friday morning, Allison Yang presented the team’s stock pitch to a panel of six judges and answered their questions. Although the pitch didn’t place in the top three, the experience was invaluable.
Reflecting on the weekend, Allison said, “I had some amazing learning opportunities, including a panelist session, a lunch session about bonds from an executive member at BlackRock, and watching the winning stock pitch presentation, and I am excited to bring this knowledge back to our team and take on the next stock pitch competition.”
We are so proud of Allison for taking on the competition solo and representing Princeton at this event!
