Top three stock pitchers picked

THE UBD-State Street 3rd Stock Pitch Competition recently played out at the Pengiran Anak Puteri Rashidah Sa’adatul Bolkiah Institute of Health Sciences Lecture Theatre 2 at Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD).

The competition, which showcases students’ talents in presenting their buy or sell recommendation on a particular stock, was organised by the UBD School of Business and Economics (UBD SBE) and State Street.

The final eight of the initial 20 teams delivered their pitch at the competition.

The main objective of the competition is to enhance financial literacy and skill in equity investments among UBD students. They were required to develop PowerPoint presentations about the stock summary, company background, investment thesis, catalysts, valuation and risk.
