Edward Jones Analyst Speaks to Investment ClassOct. 20, 2003
On October 16th, Patrick Schumann, a financial analyst at Edward Jones, spoke to the Practicum in Portfolio Management class, FIN 5381, about security analysis and related issues. Mr. Schumann specializes in consumer goods and services and is a member of the prestigious Institutional Investors All-American Research Team. Students in the Practicum manage the Phil Dorr & Alumni Fund that has a current market value in excess of $1.1 million. The question-and-answer session addressed issues from the confusion surrounding alternative measures of earnings per share to Reg FD, which governs regulations related to the Fair Disclosure Act, to characteristics that separate the more successful financial analysts. It was a unique opportunity for the students, and one enjoyed by all.
