GuruFocus Is 1st Research Source for 1st-Place Winners of Texas Investing Competition

Student champions said they used GuruFocus over Bloomberg

February 25, 2019 | About:

GuruFocus is the research source for this year’s first-place winners of the Chartered Financial Analyst Society’s Texas Investment Portfolio Symposium (TIPS).

When asked by judges what research services they used, the student-led group at Texas Lutheran University, who beat out investment teams from three states in the competition, said they chose GuruFocus, not Bloomberg.

“No, GuruFocus is the first place we go,” the students said in response to the judge’s question.

The judge replied, “You don’t use Bloomberg?”

The students said, “No, we use GuruFocus.”

The TIPS competition requires students to have an in-depth understanding of their investments in addition to strong returns. They receive 10 minutes to introduce their program, outline their methodologies and document the performance of their investment portfolio, which uses real money. Following the presentation, they field 10 minutes of tough questions from practicing professionals.

The team from Texas Lutheran, called Bulldog Investment Company, beat its peers in MBA programs at Baylor, Texas State and University of North Texas.

This is the second year in a row the TLU team has taken first place and the fourth time (out of four) they have taken a top-three finish.

GuruFocus is happy to provide the data and information that helps these hard-working and talented young investors outperform!

I learned about GuruFocus when I was in College at the University of Houston (graduate in 2011). It was an enourmous asset! We also used it more than Bloomerg. I am always trying to spread the word about it. I haven't found anything that comes even close. Plus, Guru focus is constantly innovating and adding new features. Keep up the great work! I want in if you guys ever do an IPO!
