The Second Annual CFM 101 Team Competition was held in December. Teams were again required to choose from a basket of stocks to include in their portfolios to meet pre-set goals. Importantly, students did not know the basket of stocks from which their code must choose. This year, there were some devious and unexpected curve-balls thrown into stock ticker list in an attempt to get their code to do unexpected things. Happily, many groups wrote thorough code which produced very reasonable portfolios. Congratulations to our winning teams:
Safe Strategy Category: P. Balakrishnan, J. Gao, G. Zhang-Houle.
Risky Strategy Category: R. Anjum, R. Li, A. Smetanin.
